A ‘Lifeless’ Bella Hadid Wears Chanel on Vogue China’s Odd April Cover

Bella Hadid’s 2017 domination continues with yet another magazine cover to add to her growing portfolio. Following in the footsteps of older sister Gigi, who delivered a knockout cover for Vogue China last month, the magazine now taps 20-year-old Bella for April 2017. Shot by Collier Schorr, the current face of Fendi, Moschino, Christian Dior and DKNY looks ethereal in the simple portrait image, sporting minimal makeup with her hair scraped back while wearing a ruffled Chanel look.

Given Bella’s track record of giving good face, our forum members were disappointed by her latest cover. “Yikes, what a dull cover! Bella’s deadpan expression leaves me cold. I don’t think Collier Schorr should be shooting Vogue covers,” stated Benn98.

“This cover is bad. Bella looks washed out and ill. Strange image to choose for the cover, while it definitely accentuates the flow of the garments, it has this odd effect where she appears to be carrying her own head?” added an unforgiving magsaddict.

“Are we running out of good models and celebrities?” asked Koibito, suggesting he was growing tired of Bella’s presence.

Echoing the same sentiments was dfl-001: “Jeez! She is the most boring print model.”

Miss Dalloway couldn’t have agreed more. “This is very flat!” she exclaimed in disbelief.

“She certainly isn’t blooming, she looks wilted,” mocked Nymphaea.

“Her weakest cover so far,” TeeVanity branded.

“Her expression is so lifeless here, but at least she’s not retouched into oblivion,” reasoned littlekiki.
