"You know what, let's put a mandarin orange on the table."
I like it much better than Vogue Spain. I like the colors especially.
Beautiful and romantic!
I think this cover follows the same style of the brilliant January cover with Yalitza which is great because I love their mood and colors. Good job at Vogue Mexico!
Not a great cover, but at least its one of the rare times Lineisy looks as beautiful in print as she does in real life. Such a beauty.
Stuuuning cover, her best one to date. The styling is exquisite and her pose looks very subtle and tasteful. Bravo Vogue Mexico.
Definitely Lineisy's best attempt at print modelling to date. The faults lie with the photographer and magazine team. Shot should've been cropped a bit more, her torso slightly more erect in order for us to get a decent glimpse of the look, and either put decent size mandarin on the table, or leave it out.
Karla has emerged as the unlikely champion of Latina models, sort of in the same way Daniela Falcao helped mould Brazilian models into powerhouses at the homefront. I wonder how popular Vogue is in the Carribean considering the recent covers reflect that strip so perfectly.
Latin American culture is so complex yet interesting for me. In the latest NY Times article on Yalitza, Karla said that she was worried her readers would turn on her for giving Yalitza the cover. Apparently one of Yalitza's previous shoots courted a lot of vitriol. Yet there's not a month which passes without an Afro Latina in or on the cover. Is it because they're fashion models and therefore regarded as the upper crust? Who knows.
She looks absolutely gorgeous, her besttt one yet!! Vogue Mexico has been killing it. Two great covers back to back.

It looks effortless.
And Lineisy looks beautiful.
I'm all for this.
Love the one for Latin America! This is her 3rd cover, looks like a sequel to the september issue of 2017. I'm sure that Lineisy and Andreea Diaconu are Karla's faves.
Love Lineisy's cover! I love this direction! It looks fresh, it looks appropriate, and stylish all at once.
I really like Eisa but that cover just looks... DATED. I don't know how else to put it.
I think it's pretty complicated but partly yes, to your last comment.
Joan Smalls was the first Afro-Latina (that I can recall) on the cover of Vogue Mexico/LA and that was already after she had become hugely successful in the US and been featured in/on Vogue US. Afro-Latina models have had an easier time finding success in Latin America because of the US (and even Brazil) having used those models within their own markets.
Indigenous models/people are a different story.
Even though Mexico and some other Latin American countries are mostly mixed-race with indigenous ancestry, it is still a 'dirty word.' Whether it be due to colonialist ideals or only white Latin Americans in power, before the last couple of years, you would rarely see an indigenous person featured anywhere. For example, Juana Burga is an indigenous Peruvian model who has even walked for Rodarte yet has never been featured on the cover of Vogue Mexico or LA. She had a film released last year but barely any attention.
Fashion is changing a lot due to social media. It isn't 'aspirational' in the sense that people 'aspire' to be white. The most successful brands are representational. I think Vogue is smart with employing this strategy. Slowly but surely.
Eiza’s cover is fantastic!!!
Lineisy and Eiza look stunning, I love their makeup. I like both covers. Not blown away but quite nice.
The first cover is beautiful. It's romantic, it's simple, it's fresh. She looks so calm, it's soothing.
Side note: the mandarin orange actually fits perfectly. She is clearly in a greenhouse and she is wearing a farmers hat. It reminds me of my visits to the farms when you would sit on the wood tables with all kinds of small fruits around that fell from the baskets.
Actually, Joan, Yssauny Brito and Lineisy are the only afro-latina models that had been in the cover... and all of them in the last 4 years.
I remember Cora Emmanuel (french model, but she was the face of the cuban issue), Dilone and Luisana Gonzaléz. Half of the latin covers, in 2017, was with black models. Adwoa and Yasmin comes to my mind too. VLatam/Mx is more diverse than any other edition of Vogue at this point. By the way, I miss that Joan issue! The styling and the photographer were terrible, but it was a nice edition on the inside. Joan Smalls by Gilles Bensimon was so beautiful.
When I saw Lineisy's name I was ready for a flat cover, but girl, you did it! Well done, another home run to Vogue Mexico.
Lineisy's cover is beautiful!
I like the Lineisy's cover, it's just beautiful & flawless. Sadly than is the Latin American's cover & Eiza looks bored.
