We are used to Bella Hadid greeting us at the kiosk and just three months after 2020 we met Bella on LOVE, Vogue Hong Kong and ELLE France. Now the current face of Moschino, Burberry and Helmut Lang (to name just a few) is returning to Vogue Korea for April 2020 and is turning into her lookalike Carla Bruni on this occasion. Bella is shot in the studio against a gray backdrop and stands high in overalls from Gucci's spring 2020 collection, which Hyunji Nam selected for the black and white shot of Luigi & Iango.
The cover immediately triggered a debate in our forums. "Demanding coverage," MON said the moment the coverage fell.
"Who allowed this mess?" asked anadmm.
"Bella from Luigi & Iango and we get it? Shame on Vogue Korea … ”added russianelf.

TommysBaby was in the same mood: "Her nose looks botched and her facial expression, as usual, looks as if she is disgusted. This is not a cover picture. I cannot imagine that this will be noticed in the newsstand. Very unforgettable."
GivenchyHomme was also not enthusiastic about the result. “The lighting is so bad. Just look at the tip of her nose! Then the rest of her face is dull and washed out. Even if she had her head down, it probably wouldn't work either. When choosing Steven Meisel, pay more attention to your lighting. It will make a shot or break. "
"Immediately gave me Vintage Vogue Italia Vibes and I don't complain. In the large scheme of today's magazine covers, this is by no means terrible, but I wish Bella would look directly at Luigi & Iango's lens or the pose would be a little stronger," said vogue28.
"I love everything about it, Meisel from the 90s for Vogue Italia, and I always love a full-length Vogue cover!" praised Miss Dalloway.
