Here at theFashionSpot, we’ve been huge champions of all-things Vogue Arabia ever since the magazine made its big splash on newsstands back in 2017- and you may not even need reminding of the launch covers starring Gigi Hadid. Almost a whole 7 years later and under the editorship of Manuel Arnaut, the Arabian fashion title continues to go from strength to strength. For January 2024, Arnaut welcomes Rania Benchegra onto a pair of covers. The Moroccan beauty who was first discovered during 2023’s Vogue Open Casting poses for photographer Txema Yeste and across the two covers styled by Arabian Vogue‘s fashion director Amine Jreissati, gazes down Yeste’s lens wearing looks from Fendi and Hermès.
Read below the reactions of theFashionSpot’s forum members:
From the get-go when the first cover (above) came to light, members of our forums were left in awe. “I like the cover, Txema almost never disappoints…” noted DK92.
“I love it! That stare,” pointed out kokobombon, sharing the same level of enthusiasm toward the cover.
“Beautiful close up,” WAVES admired.
Psylocke was also very much an admirer of Vogue Arabia’s latest, adding: “Ohhh, these are both great. Refreshingly glamorous and just really gorgeous. We need more Txema!”
“In love with the covers and her face. So edgy yet romantic,” described oaklee91.
“Absolutely love that portrait of Rana Benchegra in the first cover! It’s just a crying shame someone at Vogue Arabia decided to add the black frame, which downgrades the cover somewhat for me. Nevertheless, a very strong start to 2024 for Arabian Vogue – two very strong and commanding covers,” voiced vogue28.
