Read my post on the September Issue covers for Vogue US, Italia, Japan, Paris and UK!
To be safe is essential but being boring is the worst thing that could be associated with magazines, where the main object lies in being edgy and tastemaker. Kate Moss was too busy styling Lara Stone for an editorial that appeared in the issue, so they decided to give the cover to Cara Delevingne. Yes, she might be the biggest name to front Burberry, YSL Cosmetics, Tom Ford fragrance and other brands we lost keeping track of but it’s just yawn-inducing to see her over and over again. Also, the fact that there was a little thought process of styling just screams “lazy.” In a spread that was published in Vogue US July 2014 issue, Cara is seen wearing the same Louis Vuitton jacket. It looks like Testino shot Cara in a studio with the same hairdo and the exact same outfit after the shoot outside for Vogue US. I believe marketing and pushing Louis Vuitton F/W 2014 collection, the newborn of Nicolas Ghesquière was the point so I’ll just leave it here. I was very disappointed to see Naomi Campbell and her protégés (basically the younger black models) pushed inside the issue whereas the same old Cara was snapped by Mario Testino on the cover. It could have been more, maybe something more interesting given the synergy of these young MOC and possibility of promoting black visibility. But then again it is the EIC Alexandra Shulman doesn’t think models or celebrities other than “Jennifer Aniston, Cheryl Cole and Catherine Middleton” sell and the customer base doesn’t react much to it as a minority does so Vogue UK is forever unbothered.
