We don’t know where you’ve been if you didn’t already know that the supermodels to the 90s have made a resurgence via the cover of Vogue for September 2023.
Not only have Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington took to the cover of American Vogue this month, but also the British edition of the Condé Nast title too, in a joint transatlantic collaborative effort. Taking our forums (and the rest of the internet) by storm, the ladies can be found once again posing via the lens of photographer Rafael Pavarotti and styled by British Vogue’s soon-to-depart editor Edward Enninful. For a quick game of spot the difference, a slightly modified cover is granted upon British Vogue, with the ladies remaining in their cover looks from the American cover shot (sporting looks from Michael Kors, Prada, Bottega Veneta and Versace). Yet for the sake of variety and to break up the composition, the sensational supers strike different poses than on the American alternative.
Once again, members of our forums were left divided over the end result. “It’s a no for me. The composition is awful. Cindy randomly sitting on the floor, Christy looking stiff and not even sure what Naomi is doing. Only Linda looks natural here. Group covers are clearly not this photographer’s strongest suit,” remarked Benn98.
“I prefer it to the US iteration, but I’m not blown away by either. The layout of this is better, for me,” said honeycombchild.
In complete disagreement was vogue28: “Amazed to admit that American Vogue outshines British Vogue this month, whose cover is far more superior than this! The composition here is dreadful, looks clumsy, haphazard and just reeks of Photoshop. Not a fan of Naomi’s pose or Cindy sat on the floor of the studio.”
Caioherrero shared the same sentiments, adding: “This cover is terrible, so over-Photoshopped. American Vogue wins!”
“I don’t think either magazines really won. Sadly, the clear losers here are us, getting this AI-generated (I know it’s not but might as well be) drivel for September on multiple editions,” shared KINGofVERSAILLES.”I can’t believe there’s a September Vogue cover with 90s supermodels that I wouldn’t keep. It’s like AI was let loose in a mirror maze,” tigerrouge critiqued.
Await what else British Vogue‘s September 2023 issue has to offer and join the conversation, here.
