There’s nothing we love more than our favorite fashion glossies championing homegrown talents (like British Vogue picking Kate Moss) and Vogue Australia has been doing a superb job lately. The title welcomed Elle Macpherson back on its cover after a 20-year hiatus last month and just tapped Margot Robbie to celebrate its big September 2019 offering. Making a comeback almost two years after her last cover, the blond beauty goes before the lens of Mario Sorrenti wearing various looks from Chanel, Christopher Kane, Alexander McQueen and Wardrobe.NYC selected by Christine Centenera for the series of unique and collectible covers.
The covers immediately caught the attention of our forum members. “Not a single redeeming one for me! I don’t know why photographers and stylists always want to make her look edgy,” critiqued Benn98.
“What’s up with Mario Sorrenti and mediocre photography lately?” wondered vogue28.
“It’s always lovely to see Margot, but these covers are just meh,” expressed Nomar.
An underwhelmed magsaddict agreed. “What a scoop — the director and star of one of the hottest movies of the year! Margot is really the Aussie movie star heir apparent of Blanchett and Kidman, but she’s let down here with weak photography and styling.”
But not everyone was left so unsatisfied. “Whoa, didn’t expect much from this, she rarely does it for me in print, but not a single bad cover here, love them all!” praised Miss Dalloway.
