Unfortunately, it’s a very rare occasion to see women over 50 greet us down at newsstands. So we’re always happy when they do. Whether it’s Judi Dench making history as British Vogue‘s oldest cover star, Sharon Stone popping up on Vogue Portugal or Jane Fonda covering Vogue Poland, we approve. At 66, Ángela Molina finally becomes a Vogue Spain cover star with the magazine’s May 2022 issue. Captured by Camila Falquez and styled by Alba Melendo, the Spanish actress strikes a pose in a crochet dress from Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2022 collection for the cover shot.
Members of our forums, however, are divided over the outcome. “I love Ángela Molina and her face remains as beautiful as always…but that cover is atrocious. Her close-ups would have been much better covers,” noted YohjiAddict.
“Ángela Molina sounded like a dream and brought back some sweet memories from my younger years, but the result isn’t exactly as thrilling as I thought. Quite a pity because they had a stunning opportunity to make an interesting cover…” added penny609.

“Can’t say I even knew who Ángela Molina was, but it’s wonderful to see a mature woman grace the cover of Vogue and always nice to see homegrown talent being supported. A shame the cover itself, however, isn’t cause for celebration,” voiced vogue28.
“Such beautiful portraits of the woman and yet they decided that the zoomed out option was the way to go?” aracic pointed out.
“Terrible cover,” proclaimed Xone.
But the cover found a few fans. “I actually like it. Love seeing older women on Vogue,” appreciated FashionMuseDior.
“Ángela Molina looks stunning! Gorgeous cover!” raved WAVES.
