We’re surprised that model Romee Strijd hasn’t already landed a solo cover of Vogue Netherlands, but we guess it’s better late than never as the title finally hands the Dutch beauty the May 2016 cover. Following in the footsteps of Doutzen Kroes last month, the current face of Carolina Herrera looks breathtaking in the Quentin de Briey-shot image. In the understated and effortless pic, Romee photographs beautifully wearing a pink sheer and ruffled Gucci blouse, working the no-makeup makeup look and a fabulously unkempt hairstyle.
But the cover left the majority of our forum members disappointed. “It’s pretty, I’m really in the mood for this, what a gorgeous cover,” raved Miss Dalloway straight away, setting us off on a high note.
“It’s a gorgeous shot, however the orange ruins it for me! Ugh,” disapproved MON as negative comments started to flood in.
In agreement over the fonts was mikel, stating, “What a piece of crap. The combination of pink and orange is very ugly. And there is too much going on with the hair in combination with the layers of fabric around her shoulders. Hate that it looks like half of her hair just disappears into her shoulder.”
Bertrando3 wasn’t much of a fan, either, adding, “Really bad!!! Pink and Orange?? Hideous mix and the hair on her face… NEXT!”
“Could’ve been a good cover but the styling and the background don’t match, text colour is wrong, and Romee looks lost. Is this really the best shot they got?” asked GreyVetiver in sheer horror.
“It’s definitely an upgrade from their last cover with Doutzen. Without the orange and pink this would be a very lovely cover. Still like the image, Romee looks gorgeous,” reasoned vanpersie.
