Rebecca Leigh Longendyke Lands a Starring Role on Vogue Italia’s December 2019 Cover

Vogue Italia hasn’t exactly been our go-to down at the newsstand this year. Not even covers of Amber Valletta, Anok Yai, Gigi Hadid and Claudia Schiffer have sufficed. Now the magazine reveals its final offering of the year featuring January 2019’s cover girl Rebecca Leigh Longendyke. The American stunner stars in Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott’s family drama wearing Celine and Bulgari jewelry courtesy of Katy England. She’s joined by a handful of others (including supermodel Nadja Auermann) in the dramatic cover image.

The cover actually received a few rave reviews. “One of their better covers for sure. Very intriguing. Rebecca looks stunning here,” declared Marc10.

“Like a movie poster. I’m intrigued. I like it,” Lax89 chimed in.

Nomar was also a fan: “I love the satirical vibe of this. It looks really good.”

Although the cover wasn’t for everyone. “Honestly, would never in my life be able to tell this was shot by Mert and Marcus,” proclaimed dontbeadrag.

“No one could,” replied Melancholybaby. “Looks like the poster of a film where a family gathers for a Christmas meal/some sort of celebration and all sorts of drama and revelations ensue. And why is Nadja playing second fiddle to these nobodies?”

“I love Rebecca and she looks gorgeous, but the cover just isn’t working. It’s ugly, it’s messy, the people behind look so cheap and horrible, especially the girl in tartan that looks like your goth cousin who hates everyone. It’s all way too Vogue Ukraine for me,” complained aracic.
