Kirsten Owen Vogue Czechoslovakia December 2018
We love seeing 90s-era fashions make a comeback on the covers of our favourite magazines and this month, main kudos go to Vogue Czechoslovakia for skipping the standard suspects (Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell) and selecting Kirsten Owen as its December cowl lady. The journal launched again in August and bought off to a rocky begin with Karolina Kurkova, went for gold with Lara Stone a month later and fell off our radar fully for the November cowl. Now, Kirsten participates in an art-inspired cowl story whereas paying tribute to the long-lasting Andy Warhol. Photographed by Michal Pudelka and styled by Jan Kralicek, the Canadian-born English vogue magnificence fashions Calvin Klein, appropriately shot across the Andy Warhol Museum of Trendy Artwork in Slovakia (full with Warhol impersonator).
Members of our boards didn’t fee both of the 2 covers, nonetheless. “Why on earth will you enable the Vogue masthead to fade into the background? Don’t you wish to promote? That shot would have been beautiful as an advert marketing campaign, however by no means for a canopy. Too odd. The second cowl supplied no redeeming issue in anyway. Tragic,” MON slammed.
“Literal Warhol printed clothes shot in entrance of the Warhol Museum. It’s virtually insulting that they wanted to spell it out like this,” Benn98 added.
“Having a random dude dressing up as Andy is the largest insult to the artist ever,” phungnam96 stated, referring to the second cowl (under).

“Actually? Who’s the EIC of this month-to-month mess? What’s the purpose? That is so pretentious and ugly, how is that this even attainable?” questioned zacatecas570.
The controversy quickly diverted to the casting. “Is Kirsten Owen such a modeling icon that she deserves a Vogue cowl in 2018? It’s not like she’s a Naomi or Christy [Turlington],” woemwoem stated.
“Kirsten will not be on the identical degree as her friends, however she has been constantly working for the reason that late Eighties and he or she continues to be going robust. I don’t see how that’s not ‘deserving’ of a Vogue cowl,” mikel fired again.
“Nicely, I feel Owen TOTALLY deserves this cowl. She’s been working as a mannequin for many years and all the time brings us wonderful work however this isn’t a superb Vogue cowl, extra like a marketing campaign… simply not proper,” commented luchang732.
