Candice Swanepoel Rocks Double Denim on Vogue Japan’s ‘Basic’ April 2020 Cover

Our month is pretty much made whenever Luigi & Iango shoot the cover of Vogue Japan (or any other magazine cover for that matter). But thanks to a rather disappointing model extravaganza offering last month, Luigi & Iango’s last Japanese Vogue outing fell short. Ditching the multi-girl concept this time around, Candice Swanepoel goes solo in an attempt to help the photographic duo redeem itself for April 2020. The South African stunner rocks double denim (from Celine’s Spring 2020 collection) picked by Anna Dello Russo for the straightforward and polished cover shot.

Once again Vogue Japan divided our forums. “So I guess the background covers didn’t perform well if they’re back to their old self again. I’m mad about the denim-on-denim look personally so I like the styling and it’s the only thing I like here,” commented Benn98.

“Two months in a row for Candice! Nice to know there’s still a Vogue Japan cover slot for a genuine supermodel. I’m a creature of habit so I’m delighted that they’re back to their text-heavy, white-backdrop, literal-styling self,” applauded magsaddict.

“What a bombshell!” raved CocoM.

But not everyone was pleased with the outcome. “Make no mistake that I’m a Luigi & Iango fan, but the word ‘basic’ sprung to mind when I first saw this,” admitted vogue28.

MON wasn’t impressed, either. “Yikes. Everything is basic. The hair. The styling. The pose. Even the color scheme. Luigi & Iango excels with colored backgrounds. The white ones almost always fall flat. Next.”

“I LOVE Candice to death! But that is not a good facial expression…” proclaimed guimon.

“I’m getting bored Jessica Simpson at the mall vibes from the styling, but I don’t care because it’s still better than everything else out there at the moment,” voiced marsnoop2.
