They made her look awful. The styling is equally terrible. What a waste of landscape.

This shot by Inez & Vinoodh and with a different styling would have looked amazing.
Mario Testino is done, I havent liked a work from him in a long time and Alt had a really miss styling on this one.

To be honest I think Mario Testino excels himself when working for Vogue Paris. Although I'm not a massive fan of this particular cover. I do, however, still fawn over his cover with Laetitia Casta. As jmrmartinho mentioned, Inez & Vinoodh would have provided something more creative, something visually stimulating.

The Peru theme is blatant on the cover. The background looks fantastic, great use of location. It's just that Isabeli's face looks so.. offish.

The styling is indeed horrible, but the horrendous Dolce & Gabbana outfit somehow blends well with the background, which isn't a bad thing. Also, having this beautiful natural background and considering the theme of the issue, you'd expect something really sincere and genuine, but the model poses and especially stares in such a ... hot (perhaps)... way, which unfortunately doesn't fit in and doesn't work.

AGREED.

The best Vogue Cover under Alt was still the very first one with Gisele in St. Barth's shot by I&V. I can't help comparing it with this cover, and then grimacing.

They should have given her Jeisa as an accessory, yet again.

And, you know, some other clothes. I would have liked to see Jeisa and Isabeli sharing a poncho, if crazy styling is what you're going for.

You are so right.
French glamour was certainly the best fashion magazine back in the 90's. Now Vogue Paris under Carine is looking so much like French glamour. It's a good and bad thing; good because I've always loved the aestheticism of this magazine and bad because we are not in the 90's anymore (i wish! no photoshop!) and sometimes it feels awkward to see Carine copycat her own work. And doing it wrong.
