Vogue Italia goes ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ for April
Vogue Italia goes 'Eyes Wide Shut' for April
It's always refreshing that every month Franca Sozzani refrains from using celebrities on the covers of Vogue Italia. Don't get me wrong, there have been a few hits in the past few months (i.e. Mary-Kate and Ashley on ELLE) but also plenty of disasters (i.e. any of the latest British Vogue covers). So it's great when we get original double covers like these.
For me the whole idea behind the shoot is very 'Eyes Wide Shut' with a bit of 'Cruel Intentions' – high society people who behave according to the norm during the day and who turn into completely different creatures at night. Somebody on The Fashion Spot also mentioned a 'Bal Masque', which fits right in as well.
I love the change of light from the dull unmasked version to the brighter more intense one. I wish this was one of those covers with a plastic overlay that adds the masks and the light, wouldn't that be cool?

Are you a fan of Vogue Italia? What do you think of this cover?
