It’s fair to say that Vogue Germany has missed the mark for most of the year. Covers featuring Hailey Bieber, Helen Mirren, Toni Garrn and Nicole Atieno have all been questionable. (Although the German fashion bible did slightly redeem itself last month thanks to forum favorite Raquel Zimmermann.) Now the mag closes out 2020 with Irina Shayk. Fresh off the cover of Vogue Czechoslovakia, the Russian beauty wears a sequin Dolce & Gabbana dress in the glitzy and somewhat festive cover image shot by photographic duo Luigi & Iango.
The cover was immediately declared a total triumph. “Wow, the most un-Vogue Germany cover and yet it works! Everything looks so fresh and glamorous here, not phrases they’re known for. Stunning way to end the year. Gives me hope for 2021,” praised Benn98.
“Well wow, very glamorous!” heralded Srdjan.
“Irina, Luigi & Iango and a strong dose of glamour is always a recipe for success,” vogue28 pointed out.

“I knew this would be a good one before even opening the thread! Irina works amazingly with Luigi & Iango (just remember that stunning cover for Vogue Japan) and this is no exception! As mentioned, it looks so fresh and glamorous, both of which Vogue Germany lacked this year,” voiced aracic.
Miss Dalloway shared the same level of enthusiasm: “Finally an appealing cover from Vogue Germany this year, wow! But of course someone as beautiful as Irina is hard to ruin…”
“She looks gorgeous! Finally a good cover for Vogue Germany!” echoed WAVES.
“At least this screams fashion and glamour,” applauded annikad.
Irina’s accompanying cover story is a total must-see. Check it out and join the conversation here.
