Vogue Italia Reaches for the Stars With Its May 2021 Covers

Ever since Emanuele Farneti took over Vogue Italia, we’ve gotten themed issues in addition to multiple covers. For example, there were 100 covers for September 2020. Not to mention editions dedicated to everything from animals to everyday style. Now for May 2021, the magazine presents the astrology issue featuring 12 absolutely collectible covers by Oliver Hadlee Pearch. Greta Elisa Hofer, Selena Forrest, Amar Akway, Caren Jepkemei, Maty Fall, Anna Ewers, Rebecca Leigh Longendyke, Quinn Mora, Loli Bahia, Grace Hartzel, Jill Kortleve, Miriam Sanchez along with Sora Choi sport the same Chanel Pre-Fall 2021 piece picked by Charlotte Collet.

Nevertheless, our forum members certainly aren’t fans. “Farneti could consult an astrologer to see his ideas are terrible!” suggested DK92.

“Who buys these? Not their worst, but a total slap on the face nonetheless,” noted an obviously unimpressed dontbeadrag.

While Style Savvy was clearly far from overjoyed: “Could’ve done more with this theme, but what did we expect from Farneti?”

“I actually like the concept, but the result is just the same old, same old,” LastNight pointed out.

“This is laughably bad. Twelve astrology signs and instead of representing what is unique about each sign, they dress every model in the exact same outfit so they all look exactly the same,” said dfl-001.

“Was it really necessary to style every single girl with the exact same Chanel outfit?” asked 90sbea.

“This is next-level boring. There’s no life nor substance in these photos,” complained a definitely disappointed bluestar.
