This looks like a classic Vogue cover to us. Chic and fun.
Modern Vogue tends to wander far away from that style for its covers, but it’d be nice to see something like this more often. There’s a magazine rack at a store two doors down from us and every time we pass it, we’re struck by how similar all the covers look. They’re practically indistinguishable from each other, regardless of the type of magazine it is, from housewifery to fashion to fitness. It’s depressingly unimaginative.
Not that this is wildly creative or anything, but we’ve no doubt it’ll stand out on a rack, next to all the sucked-in cheeks and soulful stares.
And it’s a tribute to the notion of what good photography and styling can do for a dress. It’s a big ol’ nothing on the runway but it’s full of life and movement on the cover.
