Oh wow this is so bad. What is it with them in naming their cover stars. Last time there was this "Linda Evangelista" in a very horrible font, now this "Isabella Rosellini" in a very horrid font. This looks so dated. The "Feeling Good" text would`ve saved the cover but her name there ruins it so much.
I thought I was in the Vintage Magazines forum and just closed the tab without even looking twice at this. This is so outdated. I must say she looks quite nice but everything else about this is horrible. The light, the colors, the frumpy styling. I agree that this is the worst VI cover of the year so far (and I haven't liked any of the other ones either!).
hum... I heuuuu ok seriously: Isabella Rosellini was/is still a great actress, she used to grace several covers of Vogue Italia when she was modeling, she was clearly someone with a different figure, personality and she wasn't the tipical runway high fashion model, but she has had a career in fashion and has done high fashion jobs so in a way she isn't misplaced being on the cover of a fashion magazine (if it's for the age issue for example) or on Vogue Italia. However, I just don't get why she is relevant now or why instead of a high fashion young model, we have her. I don't know what to think. Is this Meisel's funny take on the Vogue's health initiative and he thinks or Franca thinks that "healthy" means someone older and who isn't a model or something? I don't understand the cover, it's not that it's bad or ugly, I don't get the appeal and I don't like the fonts or the coloring of the photo. Also last month's cover with Evangelista (and the disastrous gifs' inside editorial) had a bad printed quality cover in real life when I had the mag in my hands (yeah I still bought it because it was Linda) but it seems that this one will have the same issue. I don't know what else to say. Just waiting for the other editorial features to say more I guess, coz I'm stunt like everybody else.
