COVER: AYMELINE VALADE BY PATRICK DEMARCHELIER, VOGUE JAPAN, NOVEMBER 2012
Posted on September 28, 2012
The gorgeous blue eyed Aymeline Valade strikes a simple but striking pose in a beautiful Dior Couture ensemble for Vogue Japan’s november “Opulent Dream” cover.
I love the styling, and the short hair (which is a wig), but I’m sure everyone will agree that the “free Alexander Wang wrist band” image, has a huge part in ruining the cover, as does the huge amount of soft pink, cornflower blue and sand coloured text. It would have be really nice to have the image, cropped in further, much less text and a foiled gold masthead & title, especially considering the “opulent” theme,
which there is a clear lack of. But that’s just my two cents.
