The May 2014 cover of Vogue Netherlands has surfaced on the forums. Dutch beauty Doutzen Kroes lands the cover for the fourth time, wearing a rather questionable hat. The Victoria's Secret regular was photographed by Duy Vo and styled by Martien Mellema.
Members of theFashionSpot were quick to brand the cover a post-production mess with kokobombon writing, "They PSed her so much she looks like she had bad plastic surgery imo…the styling looks bad also, that hat!"
HeatherAnne wrote, "They Photoshopped her to the point that she almost looks like a robot. So bad, and the styling is even worse. I give up on them."
"It looks like they have done something to her jawline and eyes which makes her face look really tense and odd. Quite ridiculous that this is all they can do with someone as stunning as Doutzen," continued Nepenthes.
Bertrando3 was also not impressed and suggested we move on to the next issue already: "The styling is really awful and the photography is very amateur indeed. Next!"
"Gosh, this reminds me of 90s euro teen mags… not good. I get so frustrated when cover images are lacklustre. I don't care if most people don't judge a magazine's contents by the cover, or if most readers toss a magazine out right after reading it — I like to leave my magazines out on display for the full month so it would be nice to have covers worth keeping. I've seen worse covers of course, but this is still disappointing," wrote iriswills.
Srdjan seemed to be a little tired of seeing Doutzen Kroes cover Dutch Vogue: "They're doing the same thing that British Vogue does with Kate [Moss]."
