    Wow, I loved the content.

    About the supplement... Is sponsored by GNP insurance and they are really, really, really trying to make Mar Saura a thing since 2015 I guess. I don't know if Karla made a contract with them, but is sooo tired to see Mar in every supplement...

    But what does she have to do with an insurance company? Is she 'the face', how random, lol.

    Ana's edit is very strong, definitely the highlight of the issue, but the rest are solid as well. Especially the makeup edit.
    It's actually a well-edited issue because there's a combination of the magazine's signature visual style (Indira's edit, Sobor a Cali, and the makeup edit), and then you have Ana and Mar's edits which is something refreshing for them. Just proves that you can change things up every now and then, you don't need to stick to a unilateral vision.

    I'm not a fan of Cortina's newer work at all because I think his craft relies on photography and cast in order to make an impact, but in cases like these, I can respect him because I'm sure if Valentina Collado would've styled the cover story all the sex and sensuality would have been stripped away. Not a bad thing at all, but in this case it's just better as is.

    The cover and its story is worth it alone. Alique paying mad skilled tribute to Herb Ritts’ portrait of Christy Turlington and Edward Steichen’s portrait of Great Garbo— done right.

    The other stories are on the forgettable side, but as always, Mexico’s art direction and its people features are always consistently solid and stronger than the fashion stories most of the time anyway.

    Yes, she’s the ambassador. She’s from Spain and has a few roles but as you can see, she’s not relevant enough to appear in Vogue Spain. Here in Mexico is only known for appear on the cover of some fashion magazines (sponsored obviously).

    The saddest thing is that here are a lot of talented and hard working actresses that deserve to be on the cover of Vogue and only appear on the “Agenda” section.

    The first cover is a rip-off of the Peter Lindbergh's work, but it's a solid issue & all the eds are great.

    I agree with burbuja, our country's Vogue really delivered. I don't think I've ever liked Ana more than in this edit...and the rest is not bad.

    Hope they keep it up!

    ^^ As I remember, for most of their 2019 covers and over this year I have seen mexican talents or people. Yalitza's cover was their groundbreaking issue. Karla is making some big changes for this magazine. I still remember the Talamas era in 2015, and the comments on facebook of people asking for mexican models. At that time the girls were all young, white, blue-eyed and thin. Karla brings diversity and more realism to VM&L, so I'm beyond happy with her point of view. I hope she will be there for years, is a terrific EIC, better than some editors directing the big 4. I'm still sad that I left this magazine because the covid/quarantine stuff, but she still doing so great.

    ^^Of course there is “diversity”, of course there is “representation” and yes... I totally agree with Karla being excellent at her role.

    But here in Mexico, Vogue is criticized because of how unfair the team is to choose their cover subjects... if you are a friend or a friend of the friend of the team, you’ll get it. If your name is known worldwide like Yalitza, Rosalia or Bad Bunny, you’ll get it... and if you aren’t, you can go to Elle or Harper’s Bazaar, maybe they’ll give you the cover that you deserve (obviously if you are $$ponsored by a fashion brand)

    Ana looks phenomenal on both covers, what a bombshell! The leather gloves on the sand, again, seems like such an odd styling/aesthetic choice...what is Cortina trying to say here? It just works for me and the cover story is so good.

    However, I still can't help but LOL @ the fact that this is the second (or third?) cover she's been on to try and coincide with the Bond film, that obviously got pushed back again.

    ^ her Vogue España cover was perfect, maybe their best of this year. Poor Ana.

    ^^well Jorge, if there's a low point of the current VM&L (and GQ) is the part of picking reggaeton singers for the covers and the inside stories when our music is more diverse than that. But in terms of fashion Karla has a great team of photographers and stylists under her belt. She made more famous names as Chris Colls, Carlijn Jacobs or Daniel Clavero, and now you can see them working everywhere, even for VP. The best thing they have done was stop working with Sara Gore Reeves and cheap photographers like Russell James with their Victoria's Secret models line up. From cheap looking fashion magazine to natural, effortless, diverse and also high fashion title, thanks to Karla's vision. Maybe it wasn't Kelly Talamas fault for their previous contents, she seems to be nice, and she started to use girls like Blanca Padilla, Ysuanny or Cora in her last year. But after some years I start to think that before the current era, VM&L wasn't representative at all to its countries.

    (Sorry for my bad english)

    ^^Totally agree with your point. In my experience, I can’t speak for the Latam readers because, honestly you’re the only one I met. But, I met various of mexican readers that are very critical of the edition. Of course there are more diversity in Karla’s Vogue than in Kelly or Anna Hughe’s Vogue. I started to read the magazine months before Kelly assumed the direction, and I can tell you: there’s a huge difference. I also made a thesis about the empowerment in the magazine under Karla’s direction, and after 3 years of reading Vogue in a critical way, not as a fashion enthusiast, I realized than Karla is the best thing that happened to the magazine. She knows how to use the stylists and photographers to her favor and create great visual content, she knows how to put Vogue in everyone’s mouth. But there’s a kind of “fake inclusion” that make readers feel disconnect with the discourse (or speech?) of the magazine.

    To name one example: their last december cover... they released the muxe cover a week before the Kerolyn one... obviously to get the media attention, because a muxe on the cover means a lot for the mexican culture or the LGBTTQ community, but when they release the original cover, a lot of readers felt betrayed becuase they used the line “México lindo y querido” (one of the most popular songs here) next to a model that is everything except mexican, even when they had gorgeous mexican models in the main editorial. Things got worse when the muxe community gave an interview telling that Vogue offered them the main cover of the issue, not the foldout and that was the reason they agreed to appear in the magazine. Obviously nobody cared because of the good (international) press they got when they released the preview.

    (if you like, we can discuss the topic in spanish via private message) :D

    ^ I don't know what happened with that december issue, it was an strange cover option, even for Latin America, but maybe Kerolyn was hired months before for beign there. I'm not sure if they still pick the possible cover models every january (I remember very well a letter by Kelly Talamas saying they chose the cover subjects at the beginning of the year). I've criticised their january cover because they chose Krini Hernandez as the "next face" of Mexico (sort of), because she looked too european to me, but otherwise I liked the photograph of that cover and the editorial too, it was published for the Latin version as well, and I find it very fitting for this magazine. Krini was born in Mexico, so I understand that even if she doesn't look representive for M&L she is Latina as well. For their july issue they put a girl that represents very well Mexico and the rest of Latin America, so they have listened to what they readers wants. Karla wrote for the 20th anniversary issue that she regrets not using the same cover with Yalitza for Latin America because she was afraid that the cover were too mexican for the other countries, so she put Irina wich is more familiar for every reader here. Maybe we will see a LGBT+ cover in the future, I will love to see that. After this freaking year we will see more different kind of people fronting the cover of Vogue. We have seen even kids drawings (a terrible idea thought), so anything is possible, even maybe a man will be on the cover of any Vogue in some point. Funny that the last Vogue I bought I've found an Argentinian girl for the covers of both editions, Cynthia Arrebola, and sheher beauty representes very well the latinas girls. When I saw Cynthia there I thought "Karla read my comments here, hahaha". I was so happy. I can't believe what happened after that month, I still can't. I remember in 2017 I was flipping to my Vogue magazines and thinking "finally I'm spending my money in fashion magazines that worth, this is that I want to read for the next years".

    ^^ Agree! This year she’s been doing an amazing choice of the cover subjects and even the mexican photographers behind the covers. My guess is becuause of the pandemic, most of the team lives here and they have less options than in a regular year. I hope they keep listening their readers and keep working with local talents and even give mexican designers a platform! Is rare to see local names credited in main editorials.

    Krini’s cover and choice for the April issue of Vogue US, were criticized here too, specially because other editions choices were ad hoc to the nation that the model represents, and were the same when they put Mariana Zaragoza or Issa Lish, there’s no doubt they are gorgeous girls, but don’t represent mexican beauty.

    Utterly fabulous, but I am not at all surprised considering the involvement of George Cortina. There ain't no one can do strong, sultry and sexy like Cortina, and such striking black and white photography from Alique too.

    Yet honestly, should we expect anything less when a natural beauty like Ana de Armas is in front of the lens? The cover image is to die for, as is the Richard Avedon-esue shot and the double-paged latex Saint Laurent one. The most sublime Vogue Mexico shoot, in a VERY long time!
