It’s official: Vogue Portugal is the new Vogue Italia. The magazine has consistently delivered the goods, going toe-to-toe with other heavyweight titles, like American Vogue and British Vogue. It was just last month that the mag broke new ground with a pair of brilliant Alek Wek and Thando Hopa covers and now it’s delighted us yet again with a set of Sharon Stone covers for May. The actress sizzles on the dynamic covers, both shot by Branislav Simoncik.
Needless to say, the majority of our forum members were delighted. “Love Sharon! The first cover is stunning, 61 never looked so good,” expressed mepps.
“Another unexpected cover subject that I fully get behind. This seems to be a recurring theme for magazines this month. Love the first cover,” echoed Ken Doll Jenner.
“Wow at that first cover! I absolutely love it,” declared GinAndTonic.
“I love the cover in the water. Not sure why, but I’ve always liked her for whatever reason,” chimed in lelaid.
But not everyone was impressed. “Wow, unexpected choice, and while I really like Sharon a lot, the first cover was enough. My only gripe is the unnecessary Photoshop. This could have been such a more powerful shot if her actual face with wrinkles showed on the water cover,” Benn98 critiqued.
Also quick to question the post-production was mikel: “I have a hard time recognizing Sharon Stone in the second cover.”
“Why produce meh content when you have Sharon Stone? Are they mad?” asked dontbeadrag.
