Since 2017, back when Alexandra Shulman gave Ashley Graham her very first cover of Vogue, the model and body positivity advocate has been welcomed as cover girl onto multiple editions of Vogue from across the globe. From fronting American Vogue (twice) to shimmering in sequined Valentino on Vogue Germany – Ashley’s cover repertoire is second to none. Vogue Brazil is the latest to welcome Ashley as their cover star, who covers the Brazilian fashion title’s November 2023 edition, across a duo of dynamic and glamorous covers. Captured by creative twosome Marcos Florentino and Kelvin Yule (of MAR+VIN), complete with styling from Rita Lazarotti, the industry fave rocks looks from Dolce & Gabbana.
Ultimately, the covers received mixed feedback across our forums. “This is so horrible,” voiced an underwhelmed carioherrero.
“There’s no point getting your cover star to glam it up, if they look like they’re waiting for some curtains to dry, while going for the world record in gathering toilet paper with their feet,” stated tigerrouge.
“Are we in 2015?” asked Kimy Jo.
“It’s just boring,” forum member mepps sighed.
Nevertheless, not everyone was so quick to disapprove of the covers. “At the very least, the two covers are marginally stronger than Ashley’s recent cover of Vogue Germany. I am very pleasantly surprised at how much I’m a fan of these two covers – and this whole shoot!” declared vogue28.
“I actually love the covers and editorial. Finally a magazine got the right styling and photographer for a curvy woman on a fashion magazine,” Urban Stylin praised.
Ashley’s accompanying cover feature is a total must-see. Check it out and join the conversation, here.
