“The colors truly are beautiful, I like this. Especially compared to the past several months of Vogue China, this is a masterpiece,” aracic chimed in.

“Quite a strong debut cover. I love that they put an unknown model on the most important issue of the year,” appreciated THD96.

“I didn’t expect much from Margaret Zhang, but I am able to admit just how spectacular this has truly turned out! The cover is absolutely sublime and the background is captivating with those mountains and the coloring from the sunrise,” raved vogue28.

While BlueRuin simply described the cover as “stunning.”

But not everyone shared the same sentiment. “The background looks almost painted like one of those Chinese watercolor paintings. I honestly can’t tell if I like this or not,” confessed marsnoop2.

“I can’t pinpoint exactly why, but I don’t like this at all,” shared KINGofVERSAILLES.
