We’ve always been huge advocates for magazines championing fresh new talent and nothing thrills us more than seeing someone new and different on the cover of Vogue (as opposed to the usual actresses the publication favors). To our delight, Daisy Ridley makes her Vogue debut as November 2017’s cover girl. Shot by Mario Testino and with styling from Tonne Goodman, the British actress gives us chills as she stares down the camera in a bold Saint Laurent dress.
Ultimately, Daisy’s cover left our forums divided. “Stunning! She never worked in print to me before, but this is really well done. And wow at it being Testino to bring out the best in her,” wrote Miss Dalloway upon checking out the cover.
“The force is strong with this one! She never looked better. I love the styling, even the greasy hair works here IMO,” kokobombon added.
“I like it, she is giving me Carré Otis vibes,” described KissMiss.
Honeycombchild also approved of the cover image. “She looks beautiful. I detest the earring in such a symmetrically perfect image, but that’s just me. It’s nice. Feels quite bold and spring-like in its colorings,” he noted.
“I think she’s rather boring but this is a very nice cover,” commented a pleasantly surprised Ed.
Forum member dodencebt wasn’t feeling it, though. “Am I the only one who thought ‘volleyball player’ when I saw this? They couldn’t have put her in a more unflattering dress for that angle, no matter how gorgeous her face is,” he slammed.
“I don’t like it,” complained MON. “It looks like a Lindbergh photo. Too rough!”
Marc10 replied, “I was just thinking this, it looks like a colored version of a Lindbergh photo. I don’t really love it, but at least it’s something bold for Vogue.”
