You’ve probably already read your September issues from cover to cover by now, and just as well because the October issues have started to trickle out. The latest to surface on our forums is Vogue Germany. The magazine released its October 2014 cover just before the weekend via its website. The cover features Natasha Poly, whose last cover for German Vogue was back in June 2006. This time around, we see the Russian beauty shot by photographic duo Luigi & Iango, sporting a Brigitte Bardot inspired look while wearing Givenchy.
Our forum members have mixed feelings regarding the cover. “She looks a bit Bardot/Schiffer-esque. But anything with Queen Poly is a yes in my book!” wrote orchidee.
“Gorgeous, even all that ugly text layout can’t ruin her beauty!” commented Miss Dalloway.
Benn98 also noticed the evident Bardot inspiration: “I like the Bardot-esque pin-up vibe. So Natasha’s last Vogue DE cover was in 2006, meaning the gap was almost a decade. It actually baffles me, she’s probably one of the most hardest working girls in the industry.”
It seems most of our forum members aren’t feeling it, however. “Mmm… I sort of don’t like it… I find the makeup a bit too much… She looks too beige…” shared KissMiss.
Abracadabra acknowledged the amount of post-production, “This is terrible, she looks slightly unrecognizable and the amount of Photoshop is shocking.”
“Dreadful cover, the Photoshop ruined it and made her look like an alien!” agreed Urban Stylin.
