Aside from the odd article and throwback photos on Instagram, there haven’t been any major tributes paid to Karl Lagerfeld since his death in February. But we have a feeling that’s all about to change with the arrival of the May fashion magazines. Vogue China’s May 2019 issue leads the way with a beautiful homage to the legendary designer. The magazine scored some of Lagerfeld’s favorite muses, Claudia Schiffer, Grace Elizabeth and Sasha Pivovarova, who pose wearing archival Chanel pieces on the newsstand cover (below), photographed by Camilla Akrans and styled by Daniela Paudice. Going the extra mile, the girls also star on three solo covers, Schiffer’s being made available exclusively online while Pivovarova’s and Elizabeth’s covers will feature in the digital edition (all pictured after the jump).
Members of our forums were in awe after checking out the covers. “Now that’s how to pay tribute to someone of Karl Lagerfeld’s stature. A real nice effort from Vogue China on this one, extra special to see Claudia Schiffer here and the outcome overall is simply beautiful. Claudia’s solo and the group cover would be the must-haves for me,” vogue28 said.
“What a wonderful way to pay tribute to Karl. Other magazines should be ashamed of themselves,” added dodencebt.

“OMG, I haven’t purchased Vogue China for a long long long time, but Idefinitely wanna buy this issue, so happy Claudia landed on VC, the casting can’t be more perfect! I love when magazines choose pieces from house’s archive for the tribute, not just pick from the latest collection,” chanelh admired.
Sharing the same sentiments was Nomar: “Great covers! All the girls look beautiful and it’s a nice tribute to see them using archival pieces.”
“Beautiful covers! All the girls look amazing, healthy and glowing!” raved nicknick.
SLFC couldn’t have agreed more, writing, “Everything is just perfect and flawless.”
In the same frame of mind was forum member Linnalu: “Amazing covers, the group shot is absolutely the best VC cover in years. Well done!”
