We’ve made zero attempts to hide the fact that Vogue Paris is the best magazine for pure, unapologetic fashion (even during a global health crisis). After a triumphant 2020, Emmanuelle Alt started 2021 off with a spectacular Anna Ewers offering. Although, last month’s Quinn Mora cover unfortunately fell short. In a quest to redeem itself, the mag takes us to Mexico with a little help from Nora Attal for April 2021. Scoring her first Vogue Paris cover, the Moroccan-British beauty was captured at the majestic Casa Cuixmala hotel by photographic duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. In the vibrant cover image, Nora wears a bikini top, a Dolce & Gabbana skirt and a hat from Atelier Donoma.
Surprisingly, the cover divided our forum members. “I love this! Beautiful colors… The backdrop is stunning, it perfectly sells the mood they were going for and now I’m even more depressed about being inside the house staring out at the gray sky,” said LastNight.
“I love it! Finally someone doing a location shoot worth putting in a picture. Just what I need after a year of lockdown and not being able to go anywhere,” echoed dfl-001.
“Perfection, especially compared to the garbage other magazines publish nowadays,” praised SanderGreen.

“So much color, so much architecture and energy. Love it for these reasons alone. Although if I’m totally honest, a zoomed-in version would have been better,” critiqued Benn98.
Not everyone was thrilled with the outcome, however. “It pains me to confess that I’m not a fan of this! Not a fan of the full-length cover image and how it’s reading more like a travel supplement as opposed to a fashion magazine cover,” vogue28 chimed in.
“I love Nora, but this looks like an Instagram post of a traveling influencer or something…” voiced Krystalblue006.
THD96 felt the same way: “A little zoomed in and more expression on Nora’s face would’ve made a stellar cover. It does look like a travel magazine.”
