It’s definitely a rare occasion to see fashion models on the covers of our favorite glossies. Usually, it’s models of the moment or supermodels from the 90s. So it’s refreshing to see Alessandra Ambrosio fronting Vogue Mexico. After absolutely impressing with last month’s Shakira cover, the Mexican fashion bible’s offering for August 2021 is also stellar. Shot in black and white by Emma Summerton and styled by Valentina Collado, Alessandra wears a Celine jacket and pants along with a Deborah Marquit top for the newsstand cover (below).
The cover certainly took our forum members by surprise. “Dreadful art direction aside, this is indeed a strong cover from Vogue Mexico… Alessandra looks fantastic, has photographed beautifully, has a strong and commanding presence — zero complaints,” commented vogue28.
“Unexpectedly good! Alessandra looks spectacular…” proclaimed an undoubtedly thrilled aracic.
“Ale slays!” raved an obviously stoked oaklee91.

“Wow, her best high fashion cover in YEARS… She looks like a SUPERSTAR!” declared Bertrando3.
“It’s like the Steven Meisel Vogue Italia cover I always wanted for her,” approved an absolutely impressed marsnoop2.
Clearly not everyone was jumping for joy, however. “Wow, that graphic design is unfortunate to say the least. Those fonts and overrated and outdated Alessandra in addition to all of this…I am having secondhand embarrassment from this,” said dontbeadrag.
