We had a lot of hits and misses last year when it came to Vogue Germany. Covers with Hailey Bieber Toni Garrn and Nicole Atieno were viewed as unsatisfactory, while covers with Anok Yai Raquel Zimmermann and Irina Shayk enjoyed us endlessly. Already in December Christiane Arp announced her resignation from Hochglanz, who concluded her term of office with an offer from Leni and Heidi Klum . Akon Changkou now graces the cover picture of the March 2021 title fresh from the front Vogue Hong Kong . The South Sudanese-Australian beauty, recorded by Julia Noni and designed by Nicola Knels, is worn by Chanel for the eye-catching cover picture.
The cover received mixed feedback on our forums. "That's a nice profile. A different layout would have raised it more," said mikel .
“Nice to see Akon on a Vogue cover. However, the photo and layout do not match. It's like looking at fan art, ”repeated crmsnsnwflks .
“Breathtaking portrait! It's certainly better than most of their 2020 covers, ”estimated Benn98 .

MON was also not impressed by the art direction. “Breathtaking! I wish she would look in front of the camera because it says "face to the future". I hate the art direction! Hate it. It needs to be increased seriously. ”
"Don't know why people like this, a generic photo of a generic (by today's standards) model. The lighting isn't good either, but the styling is nice, I'll admit. More elaborate and nifty lighting mixed with better Model, would have resulted in a much more conspicuous cover, "criticized dontbeadrag .
" Meh. Seen better and just reminds me of Karim Sadli's portrait of Adut Akech for Chanel's Cruise 2020 campaign, which was far more conspicuous This is not enough, "added vogue28 .
