Our forums can usually guess who will turn up on the cover of Vogue Paris every month, thanks to Emmanuelle Alt being pretty predictable. After serving retro redux with Rianne van Rompaey last month, the French fashion bible goes all classical on us for April 2019 with some surprising cover girls. Adut Akech and Raquel Zimmermann score their first Vogue Paris covers, while regular Andreea Diaconu adds another to her portfolio. Photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin and styled by Alt herself, the girls sport show-stopping creations from Valentino and Chanel on their solo covers.
Forum members digested Adut’s cover first (above). “Fabulous! It’s what I’ve been waiting for on a Vogue Paris cover for a while now,” dodencebt said.
“Wow! What else could I possibly say!” exclaimed Blayne266.
“Wow, such a change for the usual VP covers styling wise. I love it and am so happy for Adut,” said kokobombon.

Andrea’s cover shortly followed (below). “Scarlett O’Hara realness. Very conservative for VP. I’m not sure if I like it or loathe it. Andreea is a VP girl, so I guess the casting makes sense,” noted Benn98.
“Oh, I’m all for Andreea Diaconu but a big no to this cover. This is probably the most pedestrian cover I’ve ever seen for Vogue Paris! This is so not in their essence. It’s actually rather depressing. Let’s hope the third and last one’s going to be better,” Valentine27 commented.
Our forums were rather ecstatic over Raquel’s cover (below). “Raquel. Effin. Zimmermann. Finally!! FINALLY!” wrote MON.
“Raquel on the cover of Vogue Paris? I can die and go to heaven now,” shared mikel.
“RAQUEL FREAKIN´ ZIMMERMANN IS FINALLY ON THE F***ING COVER OF VOGUE PARIS! This day will eventually be known to mere mortals as Raquel’s Vogue Paris cover day. DAMN Y´ALL. Every fan of supermodels and every old-school Fashion Spot user has been dreaming about this cover for at least a decade,” Bertrando3 proclaimed.
In the same frame of mind was jeffandtheworld: “Haven’t come across a cover as captivating as Raquel’s in a long long time. Pure fashion.”
