alessandra ambrosio for vogue brazil

by Jeremy Danté

represented by elite model management, alessandra ambrosio is on a mission to conquer the high end fashion editorial game & appears on the july cover of vogue brazil. shot by jacques dequeker, styling for the spread was done by giovanni frasson with hair & make-up by robert estevão. while i love the feature editorial- styling, set & all; i really dont like that the cover seems so aesthetically disconnected from what was done editorially. take for instance the gucci dress on the cover, you dont even see anything even remotely similar in the styled pieces seen in the spread- while the textured walls & victorian elements of the spread add charm & depth, the washed out background of the cover come off as bland. i believe that the cover should grab you & move you to purchase the issue- not leave you guessing & have you surprised when you actually open the issue. i fully appreciate  ambrosio for the july issue, but would’ve liked to see much more creative effort from the cover to the feature spread.
