    I was elated when I saw Regina's name on this forum, but
    only to see those lifeless covers. I don't know why but the
    first one makes me feel sad + the second one looks like a
    BTS photo. The shadow is LITERALLY devouring her face
    right there.

    I wish the second one didn't have all that shadow because the colours and natural light look nice and she always photographs pretty well. Someone should also tell Anna this is how you do diversity not by recycling the same subjects.

    “Ok guys let’s do an un-retouched issue but also try our best to hide any natural flaws”

    not that Regina has any and she’s absolutely stunning but I feel that was what was going through their heads when choosing the covers...curious to see the edits that follow.

    She looks like having a beard on the second one
    Bad for the photo editor...

    "Do not retouch?"

    More like, "Do not show face." Lmao.

    I LOVE the first cover. She's so beautiful, and you have to work hard to photograph her badly,
    which is exactly what happened for that unnecessary second cover. She looks like that bearded queen who was on the cover of VP years ago.

    A positively surprising cover subject, especially for VG. Can't say that I'm all that impressed by the outcome, the first cover works but feels just slightly dull (Subscribers cover material) while the second one doesn't work at all for me. Still, it's better than most.

    I'm curious to see the inside of this magazine. I don't think we ever really get to see actual scans here on the forum except for an occasional textless editorial. Is there any website that offers digital subscription? Don't think I've seen it on Zinio.

    Surprised and delighted with the choice, but disappointed with the outcome.

    Her beauty deserves more.

    They don't want to retouch but then literally hide her face? Bad optics, Vogue Greece.

    Do they know who she is in Greece?

    I had the same thoughts. Why hide her face with those unnecessary shadows if you are going to do an unretouched issue.

    A pair of uneventful and unremarkable covers if you ask me, and Regina's cover of Marie Claire by Thomas Whiteside still remains to be the best a magazine has ever profiled her (along with WSJ. Magazine by Alexandra Leese).
