Now, Japan and Brazil (favourite countries everrrr) go head-to-head in my second Vogue cover off. Now I haven’t made this assumption on these covers alone but I reckon it’s pretty obvious that Brazil sexes it and Japan is all about the power of the outfit. That’s because no one does outfits like the Japanese and no one sexes like the Brazilians (!) T’is true! I’m reckoning that top-left screaming Adriana Lima with the wonky ‘G’ might be the one the best Vogue covers ever! Having said that, Fafi’s guest spot editorial at Nippon Vogue in July 2008 was pretty special. T’was lots of controversy being little girls and all, and the fact that Fafinettes are traditionally quite sexual (see left) but I dunno, these girls aren’t posing provocatively and as for the make-up, why I myself recall colouring eyelids and nails with felt-tip pens at such an age, (I assume they didn’t use such methods here), but I reckon it’s a-okay. Glad to post a reminder so we can all appreciate how cool a Vogue moment this was.
