Florence Welch Does Vogue UK January 2012

  • Pin it

It sorrows me to say that although I highly appreciate Florence Welch, this cover is a huge disappointment. It has that Farrah Fawcett air you just can’t get away from (doesn’t it)?

In short: Florence Welch does Vogue UK January 2012, photographed by Mario Testino and highly praised, as the cover mentions “The Florence phenomenon”. Good for her – she’s very talented and the music she makes is really special. The inside pictorial is surprisingly ethereal for someone like Florence who always looked like someone very tellurian and well… rock solid (I mean that not in a bad way but in reference to the solid state and hardly moldable, floating nature of a rock). The colors they used, the poses and the outfits blew me away! I couldn’t have suspected such transparent sensibility from Florence. Could you? – hit the jump to see where my surprise comes from!

I am also a bit let down by this cover too, it is a bit ah… flat.
I really like Florence Welch’s music she is wonderfully creative but lately there has been a bit of a controversy regarding the racist images that she uses in her music videos. A lot of people are very unhappy about that and I am one of them too.
