It’s hard to believe a whole year has gone by since American Vogue served up that absolutely poignant Irving Penn cover. Ever since the mag’s delivered megawatt cover stars, including Naomi Campbell, Harry Styles along with Selena Gomez. Now Kaia Gerber makes her solo debut on the American fashion bible with the unveiling of its June/July 2021 issue. The all-American beauty poses in Malibu wearing a Chanel Spring 2021 Haute Couture dress (selected by Tonne Goodman) for the image shot by Colin Dodgson.
Nevertheless, the cover is receiving mixed reviews. “The cover looks regal! I love the fact that Vogue is finally trying to spice things up with its covers without fully changing its brand,” admired crmsnsnwflks.
“For some reason, I really like this,” admits MyNameIs.
“That’s quite a lovely shot!” confesses mikel.

“This is just fantastic. A cozy and indeed hopeful cover where everything comes together so well,” approved an obviously thrilled 1018am.
MON is certainly a fan: “I like it. There’s something very hopeful about this particular cover. Maybe it’s the way that she’s looking ahead?”
“Got no complaints seeing Kaia Gerber on the cover of Vogue, always love the sight of a beach, love the clear blue skies and the warm sunset lighting along with the sense of freedom and optimism the cover brings…” voiced vogue28.
But clearly not everyone is happy. “At this point the death of Vogue is self-inflicted. People are bored of seeing the same-looking, boring, rich, nepotism girls pushed at them,” wrote Serend1pity.
“U.S. Vogue is so lost, I don’t hate the cover nor am I wowed by it, it’s just meh,” proclaimed ReneSanchez.
