It’s not every month that our dream cover star fronts one of our favorite fashion glossies. But this month Vogue Germany is making our dreams a reality. It’s a good thing because the German fashion bible has a whole lot of making up to do following several questionable covers featuring Hailey Bieber, Toni Garrn and Nicole Atieno. Now forum favorite Raquel Zimmermann graces the magazine’s November 2020 issue decked out in a wool blazer from Prada courtesy of Nicola Knels and a head full of curls. The Brazilian beauty was captured perched on a stool for the Chris Colls-snapped image.
The cover caused quite a stir on our forums. “RAQUEL! YES, a real supermodel on a Vogue cover and still in 2020? I could almost cry,” raved Bertrando3.
“Raquel. The queen,” hailed caioherrero.
“Finally a great cover for Vogue Germany. Raquel looks fantastic, as expected, and I love the portrait. It sort of has a modern day renaissance quality to it thanks to her beauty, it’s intriguing. Raquel alone makes this issue worth looking at,” stated aracic.

“Despite the horrible cropping and logo color, I cannot hate on this. Raquel better work!” wrote dontbeadrag.
Unfortunately, everyone else was underwhelmed by the outcome. “It’s not bad, especially when you consider Vogue Germany’s bad run of covers this year. But it’s lacking something, her facial expression is slightly off…” commented mikel.
“Only Chris Colls can make someone like Raquel look so dull,” ranted RedSmokeRise.
GivenchyHomme felt the same way: “It’s a vacant photograph. You don’t book Raquel for something so solemn.”
