The month isn’t complete until the Hadid sisters land covers of Vogue. Gigi Hadid is currently on Vogue Germany and now Bella Hadid makes her long-awaited debut on Vogue Netherlands for November 2019 (Gigi already has two covers of the Dutch fashion bible under her belt). Sean Thomas shot the “Dutch Design Issue” cover on location at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam with the current face of Calvin Klein, Michael Kors Collection and Missoni decked out in Valentino courtesy of Dimphy den Otter.
Our forum members were not impressed. “Always here for Miss Bella, but this cover is hideous and easily her worst ever. That smile is beautiful, but everything from lighting to composition to layout is off,” critiqued aracic the moment the cover dropped.
“I bet they wanted to create something original and iconic. But this is an eyesore! That pose on a cover makes no sense and with that dress. Seriously, I wonder how they could choose this as a cover,” declared apple.
“Could they not afford Juergen Teller? It looks like that was what they were going for,” said russianelf.
Benn98 clearly wasn’t a fan: “I loathe the cover. I find this brand of photography really awful and it’s made worse with that composition. They’re hands down the country with the worst covers across the board — from Glamour to ELLE to Vogue.”
“Zoom in on Bella and that would have been a stunning cover,” noted MON.
“I like that she’s smiling and it looks like an actual smile. Nice change from the frozen face we usually get with Bella,” stated dfl-001.
