Blackpink continues to dominate the global fashion industry. Lisa is a Celine ambassador, Jennie is the face of Chanel Beauty in Korea, Jisoo was handpicked by Christian Dior and Anthony Vaccarello snapped up Rosé for Saint Laurent. After being featured in the French fashion house’s Fall 2020 advertising campaign, Rosé now makes her debut as a Vogue Australia cover star for April 2021. Christine Centenera selected a look from Saint Laurent’s Spring 2021 collection for the K-pop sensation to rock for the cover shot while striking a pose up against a pink backdrop before the lens of Peter Ash Lee.
Australian Vogue‘s latest divided our forum members. “A very pedestrian cover. They didn’t do her beauty any justice. Pose and expression look awkward. The concept is too literal. Art direction, a disaster,” critiqued MON.
“A mixture of black and pink for a girl who’s in a girl group called Blackpink looks tacky,” added crmsnsnwflks.
“Terrible cover, looks like she’s engulfed in a strawberry milkshake. I’m actually a big Vogue Australia fan, but this cover is a hard pass for me. And it’s becoming increasingly clear that the art direction doesn’t work. Better change it up again…” voiced Benn98.

“The black and pink is way too literal for my taste, especially since this is a solo cover. It’s certainly not a bad cover by recent Vogue Australia standards, though,” admitted KINGofVERSAILLES.
“A million and one times better than last month’s Gemma Ward cover! Don’t mind this whatsoever, love the combination of the black and pink, will always love the sight of that Saint Laurent collection and I can appreciate the minimal art direction. No complaints here!” raved vogue28.
