We’ve already gushed about Luigi & Iango’s work for Vogue Japan, Vogue Russia and Vogue Spain. Now we need to add Vogue Brazil to the pair’s list of accomplishments as the photographic duo is welcomed back once again to shoot the Brazilian fashion bible’s cover. Anok Yai and Alton Mason are Brazilian Vogue‘s cover models of choice for August 2019, looking like a match made in heaven as they pose alongside one another for the covers.
“Oh these two are gorgeous! The first two covers in particular are stunning,” applauded mepps.
“Those are beautiful covers. Simple, effective and more than that, it’s always good to have black models on the cover of a magazine in Brazil. It’s a sign of progress to see them more and more…” admired Lola701.
“This cover is a dream. Alton’s body and physical awareness are at all-time highs. I know when he started in New York he always had grace, but he continues to improve. Love it,” declared jeremydante.
“The B&W cover is STUNNING! Stu-nning!!” heralded MON.
“The two covers with the both of them are stunning! The single one is a little underwhelming,” pointed out Urban Stylin.
Not everyone was head over heels. “You have Anok, who can be quite limited when it comes to her facial expressions, and then you add this overhyped male model next to her? This cover had no hope from the start,” said Benn98.
In total agreement was apple: “Anok has such an incredible face, but she can’t rely on that all the time. She’s giving this same look in every single shoot. It’s just boring and vacant. If Kendall [Jenner] did something like that people would jump on the hate wagon immediately.”
“Anok has literally the same expression in every single picture I’ve ever seen of her,” called out woemwoem.
“She’s so gorgeous but no…this is very boring. I wish they had done this outside the studio,” remarked Joromana.
