Lui is racking up quite the list of cover subjects, tapping the likes of Rihanna, Kate Moss and Gisele Bündchen to front its provocative covers. Alessandra Ambrosio is the magazine’s latest conquest and we see the Brazilian bombshell pose with nothing but a tie wrapped strategically around her neck.

Our forum members are left with mixed feelings toward the cover. “Don’t like it, too much post-production going on here. Her head looks pasted onto someone else’s body. It’s unfortunate because Alessandra is the perfect choice for shoots like these. The pose reminds me of Mena Suvari in American Beauty, or is it Jennifer Aniston for US GQ?” shared Benn98.
“Ouch! This is one of the worst covers of Ale that I [have] ever seen. So cheap. So vulgar. And her face and body are different. She looks better on paparazzi shots. This awful blue background doesn’t help, too,” wrote narcyza.
But not everyone felt the same way. “Nice! I would have preferred a bit stronger makeup and a shot with her lips closed for the cover but she looks great. Nice posing that shows off her body and no crazy, vulgar nudity. I’m sure it helps that it was shot by a woman,” complimented CommanderTMugler.
“I was waiting for this moment for so long without thinking it would [be] possible tbh. The cover is great. I love the blue background, love the tie, too (Hi Mr. Grey),” Oxymore approved inside the thread.
*Alejandra* shared the same sentiments and enthused, “I think she looks PERFECT! Her body has changed so much after giving birth to 2 kids, Pilates has done a fabulous job on her. She doesn’t look muscular like Izabel Goulart & everything is toned perfectly in my opinion.”
