Unfortunately, Eva Green is one of those actresses (just like Zoe Saldaña) who is a rare sight on the cover of Vogue. As a result, there’s always cause for celebration whenever any of the 27 editions of Vogue from across the globe welcome a rare sight as their cover subject. Vogue Greece is in our good graces this month, as editor Thaleia Karafyllidou invites Eva Green onto a quartet of dazzling and high-glam covers (just in time for the festive period), a whole 15 years after her very first for British Vogue‘s January 2008 edition. The mesmerizing French actress dials up the glam via the lens of famed photographer Ellen von Unwerth for Greek Vogue‘s latest, wearing an array of pieces from Giambattista Valli, Louis Vuitton, Blumarine, Rick Owens – finished off with spectacular jewelry from Bulgari, Chopard and Cartier.
Needless to say, members of our forums welcomed Eva Green on the cover of Vogue with open arms – for the most part. “I love her. I wish she had more Vogue covers,” enthused caioherrero.
“The second cover barely look like her, then again I haven’t seen/paid attention to her in a while,” forum member thenewclassic wrote.
“Oh my… the skin retouching,” BlueRuin pointed out.
“Neither of the covers are amazing which is really sad considering it’s Eva Green! In every single one there’s a detail that ruins the cover but I guess the last one is probably the best one,” noted WAVES.
Sharing the same underwhelming sentiments toward the outcome was penny609: “These covers had a lot of high potential but something looks wrong somehow!”
Also not buying it was vogue28, commenting: “Never understood the appeal of Ellen von Unwerth’s work but have always adored Eva Green, so feel somewhat cheated by this. I’m a fan of the first cover and the fourth with the dog but the amount of post-production on the second cover is insulting!”
