    It's a behind the scenes photo.

    Maybe if this were a still from the opening sequence in a film where a girl's dead body is found floating in the pool, and then we go on to find out why... then this would make sense.

    It’s a cool idea...not a cliche summer beach looking cover which almost every magazine has done to death...I guess my disappointment in this cover lies in the awkward placement of the model and it would have actually made more of an impact if Jessica’s face wasn’t covered by the letters and to see more of her would make total sense.

    Despite this I still encourage them to do these types of things...cause really all of other edition besides Ukraine is trying to think outside the box.

    I actually love this and as always you have made me look at things in a different light with your perspective. I could totally see this as the opening sequence to a movie where the girls body slowly floats onscreen and the title comes on.

    As for them trying too hard, well in an era of most magazines not trying at all, I would see this as a compliment.

    vogue portugal, this shtick has run its course - now we're gone down the route of parody.

    this is so trying to be vogue Italia (late 90s early 00) it's almost painful, and ultimately underlies the utter banality of their aesthetic.

    Why oh why is the masthead covering her face? I appreciate their creativity once again but this is a bizarre cover. The styling is beyond weird as well.

    Same here! The concept is superb, but the execution failed. A proper underwater shot of her actively swimming would've been stellar here. Like a fashion mermaid of sorts. And maybe ditch those ugly pumps. There are some freat underwater photographers who could do with some credit.

    Oh and Tigerrouge, you've just inadvertently revived the recent Kim Wall chatter we've had in this thread. I could gladly have done without that though. :lol:

    The masthead covering her face reminds me the early years of Vogue Nippon

    Photography Director is Branislav Simoncik, I am not suprise with what is done with the cover. Most of his editorials people are laying on tables... He other I think enjoyed taking his daughter to a cemetery. He likes odd and different stuff.

    And... At least is the first cover photo done outside. And has water (it's the theme of it according to hastags of post and pool...). Is more connect to Portuguese culture than any of the other covers.

    Man its so disappointing. This would have been so good if the model wasn't covered my header and is all the way to the side.

    aaaah what a shame that her face is covered by the masthead. Quite intriguing otherwise, even though it seems taken out of the 00's

    Does anyone know how did the Portuguese audience receive the new Vogue in general? Do they like this artsy direction or they preffered the good old commercial Vogue?

    Yes, it's not good, but I'll take this anyday over another safe and boring cover. I'm always for experimentation, even if the final result is disappointing. Trial and error is important for creative growth. No risk, no reward.

    To be completely honest, I've never understood the hype and floods of applause concerning Vogue Portugal's recent confidence boost when it comes to their covers. They've always came across as try-hard and too artsy for my taste. This cover here with Jessica Stam looks like some pop star's album cover circa 2000.

    She looks like a sad lonesome Barbie doll that someone threw in a pool and now she just floating around forgottten. This is a really bad cover, one of the worst in many years and not just from Vogue Portugal. There is nothing positive to say unfortunately.

    No, that is not true, at all! Trying too hard is never EVER appealing either, imo. And lol vogue28 :rofl: It does look like a bad album cover.

    It's a mix of Vogue Italia March 1999 and June 2005. Why every edition goes minimal now?! Look at Rihanna's last cover. Everybody is doing the 'Franca' style. Ukraine was the first...
