    Looks very tacky and high-street, not in a good way. Furthermore, it doesn't look like her at all.

    I suppose it's now time for Alexa to infiltrate international Vogue editions since her major supply in the UK got cut off.

    She looks a bit dead in the eyes but I think it's far from a bad cover. When you compare it to her last Vogue UK one, this is a masterpiece.

    It's quite nice but only black font will be much better.

    How cheeky of you, MDNA! :lol: Perhaps we'll see her on Vogue China soon, she does have Chinese ancestry after all.

    I think some still do. Alexa's biggest mistake was not striking the iron while it was hot. Her cult starts and ends with her style, and she was probably never as famous as she was between the 2010-2014 era. She should've done this then. Like many it-girls with no discernablde talent or craft, her days are numbered unless she reinvent herself soon.

    Alexa Chung was the first person I thought of not getting another Vogue cover after Alexandra Shulman resigned from British Vogue - but here she is on Vogue Netherlands. Alexa feels kinda random for Vogue Netherlands, no? She looks good but the whole art direction of the cover is atrocious.

    Ahhha, honestly I feel she has faded a lot, few years ago all the fashion bloggers were bombarding her style on social media, but now it’s all about instagirls, almost no one talk about her in China, hence a Vogue China cover is not happening. Unless as you said, reinventing herself, but can she be successful as Victoria Beckham? It’s pretty doubtful.

    Well they do sell her atrocious fashion brand over here, so clearly some buyers think there is a market for it. I'm the last person that would give another cover to Alexa, but this one compared to prior offerings is not that bad if I look at her purely as a model. I really like the eyes.

    When celebs/top models start appearing on random international magazines, you know they are actually irrelevant.

    Hang on, when exactly did you swop fish & chips for Gouda?? Traitor! :pink: Hope you'll enjoy it there. Weather is dreadful, but the people are more attractive on average, isn't it?

    As for Alexa, I've heard that while her line had a solid performance in the UK, it still performed below projected expectations. That's probably why they went global....
    Have you seen the site? You need to see the site. It's....very Alexa, lol.

    I like the pic but not impressed by it being a cover. On top if that Im pretty sure nobody in the Netherlands knows who she is. Probably another lukewarm brainfart by Karin S. the EIC. Im so done with her. Wonder what will happen to this Dutch franchise now Hearst has taken over..

    Yes I did. Well my husband is Dutch so I’m a little biased, i do think they are more attractive but in general the British are much nicer. Anyhoo...i will check that site, i’m prepared cringe!

    Why does Alexa Chung look like Leona Lewis? That unfortunately was the only thing here I found interesting.
