Kim Jones Serves as Vogue Italia’s Guest Editor for April 2021

It feels like an eternity since a cover of Vogue Italia managed to impress us. After all, our forum members regularly call out Emanuele Farneti on questionable choices for the once-loved Italian fashion bible. Now the magazine taps Kim Jones as guest editor with the designer putting out six covers for April 2021. Cover one features his friend and muse Demi Moore by Brett Lloyd. Stella Jones appears on cover two by David Sims and Natalia Vodianova looks elegant and regal on cover three by Paolo Roversi. For the fourth cover, Malika Louback, Amar Akway and Skarla Ali were snapped by Malick Bodian. Binx Walton and Selena Forrest cozy up on cover five by Miranda Barnes, while Adwoa Aboah poses for James Barnor on cover six.

But our forum members weren’t feeling Vogue Italia’s latest covers. “There are decent covers (Natalia, Demi and Malika’s), but the rest are rubbish. An utter humiliation,” declared MON.

“STOP WITH THE THEMES!” proclaimed A.D.C.

“So incoherent and everything seems like an advertorial…” called out YohjiAddict.

Fiercification was also underwhelmed: “Awful like always. At least Steven Meisel gave us some real fashion, beautiful models and color for April. What a difference five years or so make…”

“That cover of Natalia is gorgeous, but the layout ruins everything,” said Ken Doll Jenner.

“How could Vogue Italia think that ugly handwritten stuff is stylish and beautiful? It simply ruins the covers over and over again…” balmain1914 chimed in.

“I hate the disconnect between each of these covers, it looks like it could be half a year’s worth of issues because there’s no cohesiveness whatsoever,” voiced aracic.
