It’s no secret that Vogue Germany hasn’t been our magazine of choice over recent months. The German fashion bible failed to excite during its 40th anniversary celebrations last year and closed out 2019 with unimpressive and lackluster Gigi Hadid and Rianne Van Rompaey covers. After the January issue completely flopped on our forums, Vogue Germany’s second attempt of 2020 arrives in the form of a trio of covers for February 2020. Anok Yai, Mica Argañaraz and Othilia Simon front the issue flaunting leather looks of the season from Balenciaga, Prada and Bottega Veneta for the Gregory Harris-shot covers.
One cover really stood out. “Anok’s cover looks surprisingly stunning! The best of the lot. Clever move not to add any jewelry to it. My second favorite is Othilia. But her hair is too big for such a laid-back outfit. Awful art direction!” said Benn98.
“I really love these. Anok stole the show,” raved MON.
SLFC couldn’t agree more: “Anok’s cover stole the show. So good in fact I hardly noticed the bad layout.”
“Anok looks fierce as ever. I’m loving her cover. Straight to the point, I could almost forget about the wonky layout. Othilia’s fine as well. It could easily pass for a Vogue Paris cover,” Valentine27 chimed in.
“Othilia has the best cover, but the text ruins it,” voiced anlabe32.
“My immediate fave is the Othilia Simon cover — love the beauty styling, the Bottega Veneta and it’s honestly just lovely to see Othilia on the cover of Vogue (Simon is already overdue the cover of Vogue Paris),” pointed out vogue28.
