Models are all the rage on the American fashion glossies this month. Anna Wintour gave Vogue‘s latest to a handful of the industry’s finest and now Marie Claire taps none other than firm forum favorite Gisele Bündchen for April 2020. Marking Aya Kanai‘s first issue at the helm, Gisele wears Chloe for the first cover and on the second cover (after the jump) dons Christian Dior picked by Joseph Errico as the supermodel poses before the lens of photographer Nino Muñoz on location in Miami.
One element in particular ruined things for our forum members. “I love her. This is beautiful, but I hate the new layout,” critiqued caioherrero.
“All I can see is that art direction that needs to be lifted immediately,” echoed MON.
Srdjan felt the same way: “I don’t like the change from their previous looks. When I saw the title, I was expecting something glamorous a la their previous covers with Emily Blunt and Elle Fanning, but this just feels like a reprint of Gisele’s editorial for American Vogue in July 2018.”

“Why does it feel like I’ve seen this before?” asked SLFC.
“Not her best cover, but not the worst, either,” confessed Benn98. “Really like the composition of the image and the fact that it’s not another close-up or studio shot.”
“Obviously, it’s a delight to see Gisele Bündchen on the cover of a mainstream American fashion magazine, will definitely make a mental note to purchase this one when it hits newsstands here, but echo everyone’s sentiments regarding the layout. I hate the new font that has been introduced and the layout does indeed need a whole lot of work,” agreed vogue28.
