For Yolanda Sacristan’s final issue as editor-in-chief of Vogue Spain, she delivered all-out Spanish glamour on the cover with model Andreea Diaconu. The title now unveils the April 2017 cover under new EIC Eugenia de la Torriente, featuring models Adwoa Aboah and Cameron Russell. Photographed by Emma Summerton, the pair wear Valentino Haute Couture on the light, airy and somewhat awkward-looking cover photo.
“This looks like an opening page of an editorial, not cover worthy. Something is just lacking,” pointed out Miss Dalloway upon seeing the cover.
“I can’t stand Adwoa, but even with another model this would have been as bland as it is. The concept ‘models have brains too’ is maybe the most annoying topic ever,” added Creative.
Also not a fan of the casting was anlabe32: “Adwoa looks horrible in photographs. Actually she looks horrible on the runway as well. Don’t understand why she’s getting so much work.”
Mepps couldn’t have agreed more: “Is that really the best cover shot they could find? These two have no chemistry!”
“This is not cover worthy – the composition alone looks like an editorial shot from a far inferior magazine. I know we all complain about Insta-girls with their dull eyes and amateur poses, but honestly this isn’t much better. Even a Hadid would bring more energy to this. With the rarity of model covers these days, this is an insult,” commented a disgraced magsaddict.
“The disconnect between the models is off-putting,” echoed SpeakThatJDunn.
“Boring and safe,” declared an uninterested lelaid.
