The vast majority of our favorite fashion glossies either double in terms of themes (a la Marie Claire), revival of archive photos (superior American Vogue) or commission artists to illustrate their front pages (to like Vogue Spain) during the global pandemic. But Vogue Russia has decided to do its own thing. Because the magazine cannot produce conventional photo shoots due to social distance, there is no evidence that models like Hiandra Martinez or Natasha Poly pose in front of a famous photographer's lens. Instead, Sasha Pivovarova and Sofia Steinberg were asked to submit a self-portrait, which resulted in two unique and fascinating covers.
The covers immediately caught the attention of our forum members. "I've always been a fan of Sasha's art, so I'm really fascinated by this cover," said Aracic.
“It's much more fashionable than this terrible Vogue Italia nightmare. At least these two are beautiful to look at, while Vogue Italia made me vomit, ”GivenchyHomme commented.
"I don't like either cover, but given the current circumstances, I can definitely appreciate the effort," admired vogue28.

"I like the actual work of art, it looks very developed. But not for a cover. The pink is too hard and this white mast head seems to be out of place, ”said Benn98.
"As a fan of Sasha's works, I am disappointed that they have not selected any of their other paintings," added avonlea002.
Srdjan didn't buy it: "You seem to be late for the party considering that Vogue Italia did it half a year ago!"
“Vogue Russia consistently made some great covers. But these are terrible. At this point, Spanish Vogue is the only one that has provided great cover during the pandemic, ”said phungnam96.
