Given the fact it’s almost September, we half-expected to see a bevy of German models (like Claudia Schiffer and Anna Ewers) make a splash on the cover of Vogue Germany this month. The magazine thrills us all the same, however, by giving its September 2019 edition to two models of the moment: forum favorites Adut Akech and Rebecca Leigh Longendyke. The models each pose before the lens of photographer Chris Colls for their respective covers with both Nicola Knels and Maximilian Aufschnaiter on styling duties. An emerald green number from Givenchy’s Fall 2019 collection was selected for Adut, while Rebecca works a head-to-toe look from Gucci’s latest collection on the other cover.
Our forum members had an immediate favorite. “I love Adut in all the green. She looks good in that color. Happy for her,” commented RanThe the second the covers came to light.
“Adut’s cover is absolutely stunning! Love her in the green Givenchy!” echoed Nepenthes.
“Adut’s cover is so eye-catching with the vibrant green. I like both covers though, simple but well done,” approved Nomar.

“I love Adut, but her cover falls flat for me. Rebecca’s is better because of her facial expression being slightly more alive, but I’m really not a fan of the styling. I’m a little disappointed TBH, especially since this is for September,” complained an underwhelmed bluestar.
ForTheImage shared the same sentiment: “Never thought I’d be saying this, but Rebecca’s cover is actually doing more for me than Adut’s. Adut looks great in the green Givenchy (though the green text on top of that is a bit much) and her face is flawless as ever, but the expression and pose are a bit too lifeless for me.”
“I like both covers, Adut’s one is a little bit meh, but she looks good in that color. Rebecca, God! She looks beautiful! One of her best works by far,” proclaimed jorgepalomo.
