Lizzo Graces the Cover of Vogue’s October 2020 Issue

There’s definitely a recurring theme when it comes to this year’s Vogue covers. At least so far. Every cover subject (apart from Ashley Graham) has never fronted the magazine before. See Florence Pugh, Billie Eilish and Simone Biles. Following a pair of painted September covers, it’s finally Lizzo’s turn to grace the American fashion bible. For the October 2020 cover, Lizzo poses wearing a red Valentino dress (courtesy of Carlos Nazario) before the lens of Hype Williams.

But the cover clearly falls flat for our forum members. “Hot mess. Nothing works here. From the amateur photography to the unflattering styling,” critiqued avonlea002.

“I can only imagine how much more elevated this would’ve turned out had Ethan James Green been behind the lens. What a total nonevent of a shoot, which reads more like a lookbook than it does a cover story for Vogue! Major, MAJOR disappointment,” voiced vogue28.

“She deserved to be shot by an actual photographer!” declared russianelf.

“It’s hard to believe that could be the cover. If it is, Anna has left the building and we’re all the last to know,” added tigerrouge.

Mercredi obviously isn’t a fan: “It’s really disturbing to see that zero effort has been made to make this cover. From the cheap-looking dress to the photography everything is wrong here.”

“Lizzo got cheated here for sure. Her energy and charisma are just lost…” honeycombchild chimed in.
