It looks like she's suffocating.
Looooove the flowers and pose on the subscriber’s issue. I wish she ´d had another expression though. Still think it would look gorgeous in real life
She looks unrecognizable in the subscriber's cover. The hair and make-up showed her lack of range. Anyone with a stronger expression could push through all of the excessive flowers. The newsstand one, her eyes look sleepy, which I found strange considering how smoldering her eyes could get in the past. One doesn't need to look further than her Vogue US Cover this year to witness that. Overall, the cover is a case of hair and make-up wearing her instead of the other way around. Edward should've gone with a more zoomed-out shot like the ones in the editorial.
Personally, love both covers as they are slightly more ‘high fashion’ which is something I’ve wanted to see from Edward! I do understand that it isn’t innovative to do tiny eyebrows etc but compared to some of the other covers I.e. Taylor’s cover or Margot/Nicole, this does show something new and fresh that Alexandra wouldn’t have produced! I have also felt that he is improving in terms of showing a new approach to British Vogue! I’m looking forward to the content of this issue!
On a side note, I wonder if the ‘British’ in the logo is now a permanent feature because It’s something I’ve wanted to see for a while even if it is a small feature.
I love both covers. It´s what I expect from Rihanna, in the best possible way
Honestly I can tell that's Rihanna from an airplane.
Agreed about Bjork's collab with him, and in fact, I probably would've preferred a more starker studio setting. Much like what he used for her Pagan Poetry video. The harshness of the lighting is too much, making the entire shot look very cold and commercial.
Scans are one thing - I wonder how well these covers will look on high-gloss paper. Seeing them for real might be a different experience to seeing them on a screen.
Just downloaded the issue and can’t say I’m that impressed...there are editorials by David Sims, Mert & Marcus, Charlotte Wales to name a few...also some new ad campaigns.
I just love Nick's work and I'm a sucker for florals. Rihanna looks fantastic here.
I wonder why all Rihanna shoots are always the standard, banal studio sessions against a white seamless…??? Is it purely out of necessity since she’s only available for a very short time? Surely, someone as adventurous with high fashion as she is would be open to some fantastic scenarios— or, just get outside if it means something different than how she’s been exactly photographed for the 300th time. And it’s with Nick, I’d imagine something a tad more adventurous than… another white seamless session.
I expect different things from pop stars than I do models. I expect eras. As much as Madonna has bored me since ever, what I respect from her early career was that her changing looks we’re all part of a calculated reinvention. Every cover, part of a larger story and before we grew tired of the same look she was off to next phase. Rihanna just throws out whatever. She should be more particular about her image. Standards.
The highly stylized make up and the heavy head dress is a good example of too many ideas at one time.
Both covers are a miss for me. Shame, like others have pointed out, Rihanna always delivers in print.Either of the full length shots Scotty posted earlier would have been better options for the cover.
The extreme close up on Rihanna's face without the full effect of the floral head dress doesn't have the same impact.
I hate to say this and I know I'm opening myself up for a world of s**t but the 2017 Bazaar US cover with Kendall pulled this off better.
Another gray background cover.
I instantly spotted all of the not so subtle fashion/beauty references but why is this relevant TODAY?
At least it’s actually something. It has an opinion and a direction to it, whether I like it or not is another thing, but this is precisely what I berated Alexandra’s Vogue for a lack of, so now it’s here I’m going to celebrate it. Alexandra’s Vogue never had anything to say visually other than the boring, beige and benign for years.
This isn’t a commercial image at all, so I kind of like that it’s the cover, it’s a fashion image. I’m always happy to see a fashion magazine deliver fashion.
So despite the fact I don’t actually like it very much as an image, I’m still really glad it’s the cover.
THANK YOU. This sums it up totally, and continues to affirm my observation of Edward as nothing more than a starry-eyed fan girl - of fashion and of celebrities. He has no direction or conviction or point of view and is incapable of steering a magazine in any kind of direction...he clearly has never progressed passed the creative stage of emulating and celebrating your idols...and hasn't put in the work to make it to the stage of discovering what you, as an individual, have to offer and want to say.
I would've liked this cover if it wasn't for the fugly gloves.
