It’s hard to believe that Vogue Hong Kong has been on the market for four years now. Since its inaugural issue featuring Gigi Hadid and Fei Fei Sun on a trio of covers, the publication has commanded our attention by also bringing us Hailey Bieber, Bella Hadid and Kylie Jenner. Just last month the magazine gave us a handful of modeling’s finest. Now the mag is marking its four-year milestone for March 2021 and what better way to celebrate than by booking modeling royalty Kate Moss? Photographed by Luigi & Iango and styled by Patti Wilson, the iconic Brit beauty stars on two print covers (below) and on the digital alternative (after the jump) sporting her signature smoky eyes, tousled locks and looks from Prada’s Spring 2021 collection.
For the majority of our forum members, the covers fell flat. “HAHAHA. Vogue Hong Kong’s art direction will never fail to appall me. An utter disaster! These look cheap. Very cheap,” proclaimed MON.
Benn98 wasn’t buying it, either. “This is such a 2010 approach to the big fashion issue. Years ago a cover like this would have gotten all the praise purely because it’s Kate Moss with Brigitte Bardot styling.”
“Been there, done that. I love Kate, I really do, but this is just another Photoshopped to death shoot and everyone knows what the editorial looks like because they all look the same,” said annikad.

“I love Kate, but the excessive use of Photoshop is insulting my intelligence…” stated Serend1pity.
But not everyone was disappointed. “I’ll never complain at the sight of Kate Moss! Add Luigi & Iango to the combination and it’s a jackpot in my book,” praised aracic.
“I love it. Luigi & Iango delivered as usual,” applauded avonlea002.
“Unfortunate styling and effort, but not gonna complain. I will always enjoy anything Kate Moss,” approved dontbeadrag.
