Make no mistake that from the moment Margaret Zhang got her foot under the desk as editor-in-chief of Vogue China, she has championed and supported homegrown talent – especially that of Chinese fashion models. Last year, Zhang gave up the Chinese fashion bible’s front covers to everyone from Fei Fei Sun and Shu Pei to Lina Zhang and He Cong. To kick-start 2024, Zhang welcomes Chu Wong as the magazine’s January 2024 cover star. Across a duo of covers, the Chinese beauty who is one of the current faces of Louis Vuitton poses for photographer Huang Jiaqi on location under gloomy grey skies and a rugged landscape which makes for a visually-arresting backdrop. Dressed by stylist Vivienne Sun, Wong wears pieces from Prada’s Spring 2024 collection in the two cover photographs.
Read below the reactions of theFashionSpot’s forum members:
“Every issue of Vogue China under the new editor feels the same. It’s all so boring,” blueorchid critiqued.
Also majorly underwhelmed was vogue28: “The second cover with the maroon-colored Prada is abysmal, as if the month of January isn’t dismal enough already! The red of the Prada skirt on the first cover does help brighten the gloomy (albeit stunning) backdrop in the first cover somewhat, which I am able to appreciate. What a pair of weak covers from Vogue China!”
Forum member crmsm ultimately disagreed, commenting: “Beautiful covers!”
“Very easy on the eyes, I’m thoroughly enjoying everything,” oaklee91 approved.
