Hahahaha @Fluxxx. I came here just to have a laugh, but I must admit I like the colours. Of course the image is a mess per usual, but it certainly had potential.

I even cannot recognize that Vuitton's piece. This cover makes it looks like something that you would find in thrift store LOL.

Its a mystery to me, do people buy this magazine. Are these girls top celebrities in Taiwan? I can vouch for Zhang Ziyi and Sophie Marceau though. Angelababy at a stretch, but nobody else.

Don't know about others, but this girl Ariel Lin is a pretty famous actress in Taiwan. She just got married recently and it was widely reported. So it makes sense that she is on the cover. But whatever, Vogue Taiwan makes awful covers every time literally.

Well if Vogue China or even Thailand could book a well known models and also photographers why can't Vogue Taiwan do the same? I don't know how well they sell in their own country or public reaction to this magazine in Taiwan.

From what I know, all these Vogue Taiwan cover girls are very famous, some are from Taiwan, some are from other Asian countries.

They sell very well here, sadly. And yes, all of them are hugely recognized actors in Taiwan. The problem about having well-known models on the cover of Vogue is that most readers are scared of Caucasian fashion, and they are keen to like Japanese or Korean "Idol" fashion.

Thanks so much for the responses! I think I get it now, somewhat. They shoot their own celebs in Chanel, LV etc which ultimately makes the brands more accessible to the readers and further their sales. However bad their covers are, it always reflects a current high profile look. Asia is so diverse because, like Fluxxx was saying, China & Thailand mixes it up. Japan is apparently divided into 'Western' and native press. I find it quite interesting. Anyway, it doesnt always need to look this bad though. Last month's cover with that guy was quite ok actually.

There is no doubt that Taiwan fashion magazine is the worst in Asia
