What better way to celebrate a five year anniversary than to have Mario Testino shoot an entire issue? Vogue Netherlands follows the lead of Vogue Australia, Vogue China, Vogue Japan and Vogue Spain by tapping the master Peruvian lensman to celebrate the milestone. Dutch models Doutzen Kroes and Lara Stone were selected for the commemorative occasion, posing nude together for the vibrant cover image.
Our forum members loved the envelope-pushing image. “Finally an exciting and iconic cover! After all the Bella/Gigi blips everywhere that has been thrown at us,” welcomed Riseup.
“I think it will even look better in real life. I like it. Two great models,” applauded Nymphaea.
Echoing the sentiments was AlbertNoir: “Love everything about this! Pure Testino glamour! Finally something exciting which reminds us what the REAL ‘supermodel power’ is!”
“Love it! Lara and Doutzen looking really good on it! The orange, not sure maybe it looks better when you actually see in the store. Although I also find it smart to make it orange, it’s about Dutch pride and orange is the color to wear by important games and King’s Day,” pointed out vanpersie .
Also quick to approve was Nomar, raving, “What an amazing cover!! This is so powerful and sexy, truly iconic.”
Valentine27 also agreed: “WOAH WOAH WOAH! Brilliant and exciting cover!”
“Love this cover, need and want this issue,” stated TeeVanity.
