Doutzen Kroes For Vogue Germany October 2011

  • Pin it

Remember we talked about Doutzen Kroes and her first magazine cover since having her baby? Elle’s styling was a bit over the top (although justified by a revival of the 80s glam). I think I brought this Vogue Germany October 2011 cover upon myself when I said I wasn’t too pleased with Elle’s aesthetics!

Although I’m certain the styling falls in the right line with the latest trends and styles, Doutzen Kroes, as photographed by Camilla Akrans, is hair – thin close to awful. The much to obvious bangs clip on, the terribly electric combination of that particular blue and yellow, everything points in just one direction: you either love or completely loathe Doutzen’s Vogue cover! There’s hardly place for in-betweens! So where do you stand? On the good or the bad side of this cover? (photo via)

Doutzen is a beautiful woman, why on Earth did they make her look like this? Tis rather icky! :P

Another example of a beautiful woman being trashed by the fashion industry – it is a conspiracy!
If it was 1991 – Doutzen would be a super – supermodel! She deserves so much more!

LOL: it’s a conspiracy! I tend to believe that too.

keiKo: we here in the Netherlands see Doutzen often on tv au naturel. My god, she’s so breathtaking beautiful for real. Unbelievable. And look here? They made a gorgeous woman look like the daughter of Catwoman (the one with the plastic surgery….ewwwww….)

I so hear you aj.
Models have always been my favourite celebrity – anyway everytime I see Doutzen I think she should be everywhere the way Claudia or Christy were back in the day! To see this cover & the ELLE cover of Doutzen is such a travesty – imagine what Herb Ritts or Avedon could have done with her beauty?

keiKo; even WE would have made a better shot than this one! The styling alone….!!

It’s a pity the good days for models are over; such a pity :((

hahaha… Catwoman is Jocely Wildenstein (here)

I am surprised. Vogue Deutsche normally does really good work.

mdinah; haha….oh, well sort of Joyce in the making…..poor gorgeous Doutzen….though poor not so much. She goes into space next year. Hopes she safely returns. The new Disney Land for celebrities; make a trip of 60 minutes into space…:)

Back to topic about models: last night I saw and heard (so not read it somewhere; I saw it!!) Michael Kors saying about his latest show “Ah, if people like Angelina and the kids wear my clothes I know I did something right”.
Front row is more celeb than ever; people that makes one wonder why they sit there? To make a long story short as we Dutch say: it’s all about celebrity and keiKo I wonder if your favorite celebrities if and when they return in fashion magazine covers. Because Kate Moss on the Vogue US is almost a sort of celebrity too…or has become one? The elder models are like celebrities in their own rights. Or am I over the top here?

i read about celebs on fashion magazine covers in another blog and most of the commenters said they prefer a celebrity (well, the working ones like actors or singers) than a model. Most of the models don’t have much to say actually.
I don’t know. I am a bit divided here.
As far as editors don’t go for Kardashians/Lohans or Hiltons, celebrities are fine on covers for me.
and then you take 3 of the biggest models EVER and make a disastrous Vogue cover like the spanish one…
you see, mediocrity even at the highest positions.
Is no wonder the editorial business is plummeting nowadays.

I like the anonymity of models because it is the beauty that draws me in. I like covergirls to remain an enigma. Probably why Kate Moss is one of my favourites because who knows what / why / who she is!
But I realise I am old school & that celebs are de rigueur for magazine covers now – pity.

I got what you mean mdinah and knows this of course. As if celebrities has so many interesting things to say? And is it true? In “The September Issue” Grace Coddington mention it at the end how Anna Wintour made Vogue US better selling with celebs. I feel though like keiKo. Celebs are everywhere. I see them every day. Even the Daily Fail shows parts of fashion shows more and more. Times have changed fast….I bought Vogue UK with Adele. Also a celebrity and a great singer. But also a beautiful big size girl whose dress style I like. That girl has such a great flawless skin….
