As happy as I am seeing that Joan Smalls has two Vogue covers available this month, my disappointment is boundless for neither of the two Vogue editions does her justice.
What are we focusing on: Joan Smalls Vogue Turkey December 2012 cover and Joan Smalls’ Vogue Japan January 2013 cover. Clearly a disastrous result, Vogue Japan’s cover photo was masterfully, tastefully executed by the one and only Uncle Terry. No need to further comment on this subject, the disturbingly bad photo – execution speaks for itself.
Vogue Turkey, on the other hand, had so much potential! Joan is smiling joyfully, her body is not posing rigidly. But what have they done to her face? At least the inside content looks promising, judging from the preview posted online by the brave, passionate tFS people (hit the jump to see it). In my perspective, Joan’s Vogue Turkey is superior to the Japan edition. Where do you stand on Joan’s covers matter?
