Since conventional photoshoots are no longer feasible, magazines are relying on alternative measures to generate cover images. Take Vogue Czechoslovakia and its latest set of covers. Cover one (below) features Kylie Jenner and her adorable daughter Stormi captured via FaceTime by Luca and Alessandro Morelli. Eva Herzigova stars on cover two (after the jump) wearing a white Valentino number during lockdown in Italy shot by Laura Sciacovelli.
The covers immediately sparked debate on our forums. “Why do they think it’s a good idea to have two covers with no consistency? Also can we talk about how cringey the captions are?” asked 0st3nd.
“Kylie Jenner shot by the Morelli brothers, doesn’t get any tackier than that, does it? Scraping the bottom of the barrel. I like Eva’s cover, but without the tired, voluminous Valentino. I’m sure the only reason she’s posing like that is to show off the look, if she was just sitting there it would look like a pile of white fabric,” Benn98 chimed in.

“MISERABLE!” declared an unimpressed Srdjan.
Also not feeling the covers was vogue28: “I’m all for Vogue covers reflecting current times, but Eva Herzigova’s cover does nothing for me, despite the whole concept of being at home reflecting everyone’s circumstances right now. It’s just far too dull, depressing and miserable.”
“I actually like Kylie’s cover, although I’m really starting to view Stormi as an accessory to her now. I’m guessing she’s a muse to the Morelli brothers. They seem to photograph all of her mainstream covers. I would be here for Eva’s cover, but the hands throw it off for me,” critiqued Summer Day.
“What’s Kylie doing on Vogue CS? It’s not that bad though, little Stormi is too adorable for me to hate it!” voiced aracic.
