    I would say congratulation to Awkwafina and I personally do like the image.
    But the text just ruined it for me.

    I hardy recognise her. The styling is very juvenile.

    Looks too childish for a magazine that's all about mature grownup women. This cover would be better suited to Miss Vogue that was killed off. Plus the styling and pose are awful. One of their worst covers in a while.

    She looks so uncomfortable. I’d be too if I were styled that way.

    Glad to see her on the cover of Vogue, but the filter looks like it's made from Instagram.

    Wait 'til you see her outfits on her cover story. The one in yellow is...something else.

    They did her dirty. Happy for her to get the cover though.

    How unfortunate that it's Philippa's first cover. She does better work with the front book edits she styled for regularly.
    No wonder Edwina is so caught up with Christine who does the bare minimum.

    Oh god, this is so bad, yet it could have been great if they even tried!

    Terrible cover - not that she would have agreed to it but they probably would have been better off having Gladys on the cover instead of just her name as she is so well-loved by the readership. This is so childish.

    Would never have recognized her if her name wasn’t on the cover. What’s the point of booking a celeb cover if you’re going to make them look so unlike themselves? Such a shame.

    it’s not the image I would go for to be featured on the cover of Vogue... or the outfit... or the pose... or the hair... or the make up...
    its all so... mediocre.

    another bad Vogue cover for December, here’s my list (in no particular order...:(
    Vogue Portugal
    Vogue India
    Vogue US
    Vogue HK
    Vogue Paris (the one by Alasdair)
    Vogue U.K. (Beyonce in McQueen)
    Vogue Italia
    Vogue China
    Vogue Greece
    Vogue Turkey (that blatant copy is shameful)
    am I forgetting anything?

    (and I know this is off topic so mods please feel free to pass it to the ‘Worse Vogue December Covers 2020’ thread.

    I'm always happy to see more diversity on covers but did they have to make her look so terrible? Likewise the font is also just trash.

    Looks like Awkwafina has just survived from a hardcore rave with that messy hair and clumsy makeup.

    The font isn't actually that bad. It's the way that they are using it that makes it look cheap.

    In comparison to Vogue Australia, this magazine definitely knows how to use the exact font on Awkwafina's cover:

    Speaking of which, why are they switching their fonts from time to time? It seems like this edition doesn't know its identity yet.
