Vogue Spain kick-started 2020 on a high note with delightful Hailey Bieber and Ana de Armas covers. Plus, the mag was praised for its symbolic pandemic cover illustrated by Ignasi Monreal. But the Spanish fashion bible has disappointed us over recent months with some questionable Laura Dern and Naomi Campbell covers. For August 2020, another symbolic cover comes our way featuring Miriam Sanchez. Photographed by Miguel Reveriego, the model poses on the empty streets of Madrid decked out in a Christian Dior creation courtesy of Juan Cebrian.
How did the cover fare with our forum members? “When I look at this cover the first thing I see is the building and then I notice there’s a girl sitting at the bottom of the picture. Good thing she’s wearing red, otherwise she’d completely disappear from this cover!” pointed out aracic.
“Looks like a mood board with cut-outs. Yikes,” proclaimed MON.

Sharing the same underwhelming sentiment toward the cover was Nymphaea: “Both the building and the red dress are beautiful, but totally don’t connect with each other in this pic. The basics are there, but the result is disappointing.”
“I’m only able to appreciate it for the fact that it captures a moment in time, a moment we all know too well right now — the stillness and silence of once busy streets. Other than that, the cover offers nothing else,” said vogue28.
“It had the makings of a good cover — all dressed up with nowhere to go, standing alone in the street like the last woman alive — but it ended up looking like nothing aside from the artificially saturated colors and art direction that see Miriam being out modeled by a stone building,” commented tigerrouge.
