It was a first when Lucky featured three fashion bloggers on its cover in January. Now, Vogue has upped the ante with a solo blogger on its cover for the Spanish edition. Chiara Ferragni of The Blond Salad (also one of the Lucky cover bloggers) of The Blonde Salad appears windswept in a heavily-belted military jacket over a nude bustier dress on the April 2015 cover of Vogue España.
Exciting times for fashion bloggers! They're in the front row at fashion shows, they're making money, and now they're on the covers of magazines. Around these parts, we find it inspiring. But not everyone is thrilled. From the hair, to the styling, right down to the font, commenters at The Fashion Spot are taking issue with Ferragni's cover.
Alyssa K says:
I've never liked Chiara Ferragni's blog, to me it never looked like a blog, I have trouble following bloggers that dress like fashion editors. There's nothing relatable about that. Anyway, that cover is pretty boring I have to say, and as someone pointed it out, the font used is easily downloadable anywhere and does not scream Vogue to me.
Tinsley V says:
they put the girl who named her blog the blonde salad on the cover of vogue?! ugh.
Vogue Disciple 93 has this to say:
Everyone that was involved with this cover – the stylist, art director, EIC, and anyone that did not say no during the whole process – should be out of a job right now. I can not believe a Vogue chose a halfwit like her as their cover subject and then topped it off with a comical layout.
Is it specifically the styling, or is it annoying that a blogger has infiltrated the hallowed territory of Vogue covers? What do you think?
