Rip it up some more and start again.
Who will save this magazine first
What a trainwreck. Judging by this cover the universe, at least the fashion universe, is beyond saving.
Least of all by someone like Scarlett Johansson!
Cover #2 with Scarlett Johansson:
I remember someone on a Vogue US thread a few months ago miss the days of her being ubiquitous in fashion magazines. Well, how do you like her now? LOL
Cover #3 with Florence Pugh:
With the headline "Welcome to the resistance: JHow BLM became a movement" with a white woman on the cover....
the single covers are better than that collage nightmare but on both of them there’s still something off. Scarlet’s open mouth looks weird and Florence’s neck ran away, probably after looking at that same collage.
but, if not being too picky, they’re both pretty and still better than Vogue Paris for November... (thanks Karl).
this is a sick joke
Given the context of the other coverline about saving the universe, they've make it sound like another instalment in the Star Wars series.
Remember: Scarlet is so versatile that she can be asian, a trans woman, even a tree... don't be surprised if she says she's a black woman too!
Will be a blip on the radar, trust me. LOL. Now if this were American Vogue.....
The character (a real life person) Scarlett was going to play was thought to be a trans MAN not a trans woman, and my understanding is that it's not 100% clear the person she wanted to portray was trans or just masc-presenting due to the line of business and the time period they were in. Firmly applying current definitions and labels to people who lived decades ago isn't necessarily always the best course of action, in my opinion. Anyway, she didn't end up playing the role and said that even though she believes an actor should be able to play anyone, since there is currently an imbalance of opportunities for minority, trans, etc. actors, she understands why it would be inappropriate for her to play the role. Seems reasonable to me!
Concerning the "Asian" character she played, she was portraying a CYBORG living in a MADE UP, globalized city in the future. Yes, the character she was portraying is based on a Japanese property, but here's what the (Japanese) director of the original anime property had to say about Scarlett being cast: “What issue could there possibly be with casting her? The Major is a cyborg and her physical form is an entirely assumed one. The name ‘Motoko Kusanagi’ and her current body are not her original name and body, so there is no basis for saying that an Asian actress must portray her.” Another example of the mostly white, mostly privileged, and very misguided twitter mafia misdirecting their outrage at something silly in an attempt to make themselves feel better/more woke than their white peers.
Will this magazine survive...in 2021?
Is 2 years a too optimistic time frame for how much they have left until they are done?
What the hell is that first cover???
The solo covers aren’t anything special either. Scarlett’s cover belongs in 2004.
The pictures themselves are quite nice actually. But the design....
