It really pains me to see the magazine I once loved now going downhill. And everytime i check out the thread of Vogue Russia (aft Aliona) i close my eyes while its loading and wish for the cover to be gorgeous and the way it was before, but No. This is such a bad cover again for Vogue Russia. Where is the creativity in this cover? Where is high-fashion? Where in this cover, can you see the glamour of Russian women? This cover looks like an overrated reprinted cover of Marie Claire US or Glamour US. And don't get me started with the dress and the text layout.
Viktoriya is really disappointing. She needs to put up her own game and step it up. She's bringing Tatler in Vogue. Imagine putting a gymnast on the cover when you can put Sasha on there.
It looks like a cover of Tatler, I think it's first cover choice of new editor and hope she won't put celebs on the cover often.
But IMO, there's also another thing in choosing Alina and not other Russian woman. I think people from Russia will understand what I mean...
P.S. In previous issue, January's cover girl was described as : most mysterious Russian woman. And it's Alina Kabaeva?
I was hoping Kristina would get the cover
Im still waiting for her cover and this was not it
It was mentioned in previous issue that the next cover girl would be the most mysterious russian woman (or something like that - I don't remember correctly). Kristina, seriously? I mean, nobody cares about her and her "mysterious" part.
I've never thought about Alina as a Vogue girl, but I understand she was chosen.
