The American edition of L’Officiel has been on the market for two years, but never truly captured the attention of our forum members — until now. Leave it to Kendall Jenner to give the publication the recognition it deserves by starring on L’Officiel‘s Summer 2019 issue. Kendall has been everywhere this year, covering the likes of Vogue Italia, Allure, Vogue Russia and Vogue Australia. The current face of Roberto Cavalli and Tiffany & Co. is all smiles wearing an AG Jeans denim jacket and Cartier jewelry for Russell James’ fresh and vibrant portrait cover shot.
Members of our forums were not feeling the cover. “Still dead in the eyes as ever, I see…” pointed out Steddycam91.
“Doesn’t look like her at all. Awful cover and I don’t get the styling,” said Benn98.
“Imagine having so many months to prepare yet they end up with something as pedestrian as monthly magazines produce on a tight schedule. Sad actually,” ranted MON.
In the same frame of mind was jorgepalomo: “Meh! L’Officiel Mexico produces better covers with a smaller budget… and every month.”
“I still don’t get the trend of launching weird magazine titles, such as L’Officiel, which has been a dead magazine for years now even in their motherland of France. And then to make a move like putting the richest and most expensive model of the moment on the cover,” noted a dumbfounded Alien Sex Friend.
Gabriel29 wasn’t a fan, either. “Isn’t this supposed to be a fashion magazine? She’s wearing AG Jeans on the cover in the most pedestrian picture imaginable! Imagine having unparalleled access to designer clothes and this is what you come up with.”
“Looks like one of those pictures you take in a photo booth at a mall,” declared GivenchyHomme.
