I have long admired Vogue Japan’s covers and I had to admit I am loving Kate Moss as a ball of sunshine in Louis Vuitton for the magazine’s April cover. Shot by Mert & Marcus, this cover has been getting a lot of stick for the weird lighting, Kate’s fake-tan overload and the decision to have it on a white background, I think it is just me but it is because of all those reasons that I like this cover.
First up the lighting really does project sunshine, it looks like it is radiating out that gorgeous feather-embellished Louis Vuitton dress from the spring/summer 2012 collection especially on a white background, and secondly I love how it defines Kate’s shrinking waist and shows off her iconic cheekbones. Plus how can you not love this dress – it is totally cover worthy – and works perfectly with the candy coloured captions.
For me it certainly is sweet and exotic. What do you think – love or hate Kate’s latest cover?
