Vogue Spain has been one of our go-to magazines lately thanks to a series of must-have covers starring Hailey Bieber, Ana de Armas and Miriam Sanchez. (Not to mention the title’s beautiful and serene answer to the global health crisis.) For September 2020, the Spanish fashion bible’s cover stars Dora Postigo, daughter of model Bimba Bosé. Making her very first Vogue cover appearance, the Spanish singer sports a colorful bob and a checked look from Noir Kei Ninomiya for the image photographed by Ezra Petronio.
The cover didn’t fare well on our forums, however. “She looks like an Instagram influencer,” declared MDNA the moment the cover dropped.
“What is with that hair?” asked a horrified Miran.
“Really bad, looks like a backstage snap at a third-rate fashion show where the designer cast his friends. The type is also large and pretentious. This shouldn’t even be a supplement cover,” YohjiAddict chimed in.

Phuel felt the same way: “Absolutely. What’s worse is it resembles those backstage shots where heavy-handed retouching is sloppily applied. No one’s eyes are that white and no one’s complexion is so smooth…insultingly amateur post-production.”
“Wow, I’m really surprised at Vogue Spain for getting it so wrong. The cover isn’t awful, but for September? Plus, they have Ezra behind the lens. Huge fail,” said an underwhelmed Benn98.
“The thing about Ezra is that when he’s good, he’s incredibly good, but when he’s bad, he’s ridiculously bad. To be honest, I can’t find anything good about this bland cover,” added helmutnotdead.
“Um, based off this cover, I think I would have preferred Dora the Explorer,” joked justaguy.
