Doutzen Kroes.
David Sims.
Beat Bolliger.
Vogue Paris.

A knockout April cover filled with Givenchy sequins and Doutzen’s supermodel sizzle. Doutzen + Vogue Paris is always a winning combination, you may remember her equally appealing VP cover from 2007.

    I love that Alt finally shows her own direction for Vogue Paris. To me it’s a breath of fresh air, I don’t get why people still complain and say Roitfeld was soo much better. I don’t think so. Love this cover so much.

  3. Nik says:

    Somehow, in my mind, I thought (with fingers crossed) that Karlie would be on the cover this month. (I guess, I’m still waiting on something to justify her missing NY, London, Milan fashion week.) Nonetheless, good for Doutzen.

  4. Fashionz says:

    While I certainly dont think Alt is a bad editor, I do think this is the best yet mostly because she is showing her own direction. I love that she chose new blood for the cover. I think this is what will separate her from Carine and give her a singular voice. Also, in general, I love that Alt is giving young talent a platform in the magazine (i.e. photogs, hair, makeup, etc)

    looks like vogue nippon don’t you think!

  8. Moly says:

    I dont think she looks good on this photos.

    Vogue Paris something MUCH-MORE for me.. its like Vogue Japan cover not good.

  9. Kim says:

    Definitely a nice change of pace. And I’m so over Roitfield. My only complaint is the photo selection with this particular pose. Or maybe it’s that and the outfit. Or a combination of both. Her face and hair are undeniably feminine, but her body looks that of a 12-year old boy.

  10. Gav says:

    I love this cover, Doutzen looks amazing- so fun and full energy.

  11. Jonathan says:

    I don’t think there is a unique voice here like some of the other comments say. I see this on so many other magazine covers. This looks like it could be a cover of Harper’s Bazaar. I miss the old Vogue Paris. Like Roitfeld or not, at least it was always something exciting.

  12. Avon says:

    Before I took a close look of this page, I really considered it’s a clean version of Vogue Japan, the combination of colors, white background……Not sure the attempt to make a revolution of VP is good or not, but Doutzen looks fresh anyway.

  13. richard says:

    her eyebrows look to heavy..
    she has a certain kindnesss in her eyes, much more appealing to the woman today..but i do feel that i am not quite fond of this cover..(too jumpy, but …yeah Sims.)
    we are over Kate Moss etc…so this is a good direction anyway..
    but neverthless i am not crazy about this cover.

    with the chin a bit lower and the mouth a bit more closed..she would be a bit more vamp..and this is what we need today (in my opinion) …reachable but intimidating.

    all over …great job Alt takes guts to change a direction..its a big responsibility (and not just a position)

  14. Lulu lovefiend says:

    She looks so thin! Doutzen is one of the few models who has actual curves and here she looks boyish(and don’t even say the VS angels coz theyre tiny too, their boobs just hide the fact). It does look like a Nippon cover to me, and for that it doesn’t really wow me. That said, I actually like most of Alt’s covers even more than Carine’s, its the content that sucks. Has sims ever done a VP cover before

  15. ryder says:

    unexpected! but great

  16. Marty says:

    Taking a step forward.. so happy it isn’t Kate Moss or Arizona.

  17. Josh says:

    doutzen looks so great, but i agree with moly and avon, it does look like a vogue japan cover. this magazine seems to have lost its voice. it had this unique thrill that we all used to wait for every month. now it seems safe and commercial. this isn’t even a real Sims photo, its watered down for him, his images always have such energy and emotion.

  18. Marco says:

    Love Doutzen but something is not right in this pic.
    Why she looks like she is getting an enema?

  19. Eamon says:

    I appreciate they’re using a different approach to the layout of the text and leaving much of the image blank but it looks very odd, still.

    I am craving some real drama and a touch of the avant-garde from Alt’s VP.

  20. Chantal Morris says:

    I love the April cover. She looks young, happy and enthusiastic. Well chosen.
    This girl is also good material, but only 16 yet. We should see more of her in a year or two:

  21. Sam Dauphin says:

    what happened to her hips?

  22. Fashionz says:

    I think the stylist for this is Beat Bolliger. Not Emmanuelle.

  23. GP says:

    Bad photo of her. She looks like she was not ready. The clothes doesn’t do anything to her VS body.

  24. Christopher Y says:

    i’m sorry but this cover looks “constipated”… she seems like she’s jumping in the air but the cropped shot just doesn’t work for me… Alt is literally crashing the Vogue Paris empire that Roitfeld spent so many years building… I don’t even look at the editorials anymore… my eyes are back on VOGUE ITALIA!!! <3

  25. Christine says:

    too much photoshop. far too much photoshop for a natural beauty. she has wide hips in real life, which is GOOD, but here, she has NO shape in this pic. dislike.
