You’ll Either Love or Loathe Kaia Gerber’s Vogue Japan September 2020 Cover

It’s hard to believe that the all-important September issues are already dropping and as usual, Vogue Japan is up first. And it looks like the industry’s obsession with Kaia Gerber is still going strong. In the last two years, Kaia’s made her third appearance on Vogue Paris, made her debut on British Vogue and has covers of Vogue Italia and American Vogue under her belt. Now Kaia is back on Japanese Vogue posing in a lace top and latex trousers from Saint Laurent’s Fall 2020 offering picked by Anna Dello Russo. The model looks striking in the sultry cover shot captured by Luigi & Iango.

The styling and concept set off a fierce debate on our forums. “Sorry, but Kaia doesn’t fit the ‘femme fatale’ vibe…” critiqued burbuja8910.

“Honestly find this quite disturbing. She simply looks too young for this to not feel creepy,” added tipi1355.

“It’s not a bad cover, but not September-worthy. Guess we have to get used to seeing this sexed-up version of Kaia now that she’s 18,” commented Summer Day.

“I love the styling, the hair, the makeup and the sexiness. Kaia looks fabulous! As always, I’m thrilled to see that Luigi & Iango shot the cover cause they do it best for Vogue Japan. And you can count on the mag to stay true to their vision! No gimmicks, no bulls*it — just fashion!” aracic pointed out.

GivenchyAddict was in the same frame of mind: “Saint Laurent, Kaia, Luigi & Iango, Anna Dello Russo — I’m in.”
