It would be an understatement to say that Vogue Russia doesn’t attract the attention it once did on our forums. Only a series of covers starring Irina Shayk, Natalia Vodianova and Tanya Churbanova caught our fancy recently. Now the Russian fashion bible is tapping into our love of 90s supermodels with the unveiling of its June 2021 issue printed on recycled and nonlaminated paper. Shot by Alexander Saladrigas and styled by Sveta Vashenyak, Carolyn Murphy wears a lace Valentino Spring 2021 mini dress for the sun-drenched cover image.
But our forum members have some questions. “Is that supposed to be Earth?” asked mikel.
“National Geographic is that you?” joked VogueGirl8910.
“What is this Vogue Ukraine reject?” probed an underwhelmed dontbeadrag.

“I’d understand this if it was Greta Thunberg. It’s a no from me,” stated WAVES.
“Magazine covers like this help me understand why people aren’t buying fashion magazines like they used to. What a hideous cover and a total waste of a beauty like Carolyn Murphy,” echoed a disapproving vogue28.
“They got Carolyn just to make her look dumb. How lovely!” added avonlea002.
