When it comes to serving up captivating magazine covers, Alicia Vikander doesn’t exactly have the best track record on our forums. Whether the Swedish actress is Photoshopped into oblivion on American Vogue, soars to new heights on a cheesy cover of Harper’s Bazaar or looks totally miserable on Porter, our forum members have never been awestruck by Alicia’s efforts. Vogue Japan is the latest publication attempting to do Alicia justice by giving its October 2019 cover to the Louis Vuitton brand ambassador, who, unsurprisingly, wears the iconic French fashion house in the cover shot. Photographed by Vuitton’s campaign photographer Collier Schorr and styled by Sissy Vian, Alicia’s latest fails to impress.
The cover was a total flop. “They always put Alicia in a fashion setting and give her tricky styling. She doesn’t have the range. This might have worked better with Luigi & Iango,” commented zoom straight away.
“Louis Vuitton obviously paid for this cover. You have Alicia Vikander, a full LV look and Collier Schorr. No thanks,” disapproved GivenchyAddict.
“I think there’s a lot of money left at Louis Vuitton to the point of producing things like this…” laughed DK92.
“So funny how [Nicolas Ghesquière] is still trying to make this girl into a fashion icon. I think she obviously doesn’t care, or seem to, this is just part of her job now and it (always) shows!” called out Miss Dalloway.
In the same frame of mind was Ken Doll Jenner: “The leather skirt looks like a camel toe, her expression looks unsure and yet LV keeps insisting that this girl is the next fashion star? No thanks.”
MON wasn’t impressed, either. “She looks uncomfortable.”
“All sorts of awful, but of course I didn’t expect to be blown away upon clicking the thread, given the fact it involves the ever-dull and lifeless Alicia Vikander (and Collier Schorr for that matter),” said vogue28.
“It’s not her worst cover…” confessed kokobombon.
“Oddly enough, I agree,” replied Benn98. “I expected worse considering all the parties involved. But this Collier Schorr cover looks, dare I say, vaguely glamorous. The pose is, of course, awkward, but then that’s 90 percent of Alicia’s covers for you.”
