Christian MacDonald Captures Models of the Moment for Vogue Russia’s ‘Alluring’ October 2021 Cover

There’s something going on over at Vogue Russia and we certainly approve. Slowly but surely, Ksenia Solovieva appears to be propelling the Russian fashion bible to new heights. It’s safe to say that the magazine is firmly back on our radar. Appealing to our love of multi-model covers, the publication enlists photographer Christian MacDonald to capture Abby Champion, Cara Taylor, Hiandra Martinez, Selena Forrest and Ugbad Abdi for October 2021. The models are shot in a studio setting decked out in head-to-toe looks from Chanel’s Fall 2021 collection courtesy of stylist Patti Wilson.

“The girls are working it…” berbe pointed out.

“Best model cover of the year. Cohesive and alluring!” heralded Riseup.

“Shocked, baffled, bamboozled! Wow, expected much worse and this is good, really good, like actually one of their best covers,” raved dontbeadrag.

“The group cover immediately reminded me of ‘Fashion’s New Establishment‘ by Steven Meisel from U.S. Vogue July 1996,” noted WinstonH20.

“The cover is giving me serious group shot throwbacks. The girls look ominous in the best way,” said FashionMuseDior.

“Beautiful cover…I appreciate the old-school Vogue vibes with the multi-girl setup. The composition is great and I love the white Vogue masthead and the minimal art direction which complements the image wonderfully. Great job, Vogue Russia!” applauded vogue28.
