It’s becoming increasingly apparent that Numéro isn’t the cutting-edge publication it once was. Cameron Russell‘s cover from mid-2017 was the last to captivate our forums and now the French fashion magazine just unveiled its latest cover featuring Cara Delevingne. Cara was declared the new face of Christian Dior Cosmetics back in October and the Numéro team clearly found it fitting for the model/actress to don Dior (what little of it she’s wearing, anyway) in the stark black and white February 2018 cover photo, photographed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino. But something about this shot looks awfully familiar.
Our forum members won’t be rushing out to grab a copy, that’s for sure. “Did they even try? My goodness,” disapproved MON at once.
“Just lazy, come on!” protested a far from impressed Miss Dalloway.
“This looks just like her Marie Claire and Glamour shoots. I think they’re all outtakes from her Dior campaign,” gunsnroses pointed out.
Forum member 333101 agreed, adding, “I didn’t mind her too much before, but she’s just become so insufferable recently the sight of her annoys me. Her Dior contract only elevates this.”
“Jeez, Numéro is tiresome!” voiced Srdjan.
“Is anyone else shocked that Numéro, who I’ve always considered to be a leading fashion magazine, would use this recycled shoot that’s already been on smaller international covers?” asked magsaddict.
“Hardly original considering her Vogue Paris cover. That said, I do find it more striking than what Alt did with her. Even if she’s got that dead-in-the face mannequin look,” described Benn98.
