After a brave offer from Billie Eilish and a stunning Zhou Dongyu cover last month, it's safe to say Vogue China is back on our radar. Angelica Cheung, who effortlessly copes with the pandemic, chooses Natalia Vodianova as the title star of the August 2020 release. The Russian supermodel comes from a trio of Vogue Hong Kong covers and is the epitome of elegance and sophistication in Estelle Hanania's chic cover image . Instead of relying on the latest collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri for Christian Dior, Daniela Paudice decided to pull one of the most iconic looks of the French fashion house for the cover from its archives: the characteristic bar jacket and the skirt of the brand from the New Look Collection from 1947.
Unfortunately, the cover for our forum members fell flat. "It's just not strong enough to create that vintage Irving Penn vibe!" exclaimed Miss Dalloway.
"It looks so fan-made. Is that real? Look at the font, image quality, etc. I find Natalia so boring these days and a 1940s look for 2020? Groundbreaking, ”bertrando3 scolded.
"This is a real vintage bar jacket? You had one of the most important and original looks in the history of fashion and Dior is very picky about who you rent it to and what did you do with it?" Asked a challenged Benn98.

“It literally looks like the work of your mediocre high school photographer, who wants to work in fashion, and with a friend who everyone says will be a model, builds a portfolio that cheaply replicates classic photos . I cannot believe that an original Dior Bar jacket was borrowed for this, ”said Dodencebt.
"Nothing looks appealing. It's actually quite an accomplishment, ”added Mikel.
"At least she's wearing something of New Look that's fresher than Maria Grazia Chiuri's" Old Look ". In this regard, it's not a total flop," said GivenchyHomme.
