Fashion News: Serena Williams, Ryan Lochte, and Hope Solo Cover Vogue Magazine’s June 2012 Issue
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

For Vogue‘s Olympics-themed issue, Anna and the gang tapped some of Team USA’s most photogenic athletes; soccer player Hope Solo, swimmer Ryan Lochte, and Serena Williams, photographed by Annie Leibovitz.

It seems Anna Wintour is sticking to her commitment to eschewing impossibly thin models and showing a more diverse range of bodies in the Fashion Bible. Williams and Solo don’t exactly have the long, slender limbs and slight frames we’re used to seeing in Vogue. While I would have liked the cover to have a more high fashion feel, it is an Olympic-themed shoot, so the sporty vibe is appropriate, and the cover models are a welcome change from the usual (monotonous) cycle of starlets Vogue tends to feature.


What do you think of the cover?

    Feel like I’m looking at a baywatch commercial or something. Nonetheless, go TEAMUSA! lol

  2. Indigo says:

    Their heads don’t match their #TeamUSA

  3. Team USA looks ready to compete. AMERICA!

  4. Teneice says:

    Well there goes Serena’s hips…

  5. Savage says:

    Airbrush much??

  6. llehsal says:

    Photoshop is a lil off..but i like it overall

  7. Bella says:

    they should have just left Serena out of this shoot … her head look like …. nvm its just terrible

  8. soon2Bmrs says:

    What did they do to Serena’s body?? She just doesn’t look too right here.

  9. This cover is bad and the heavy-handing air brushing isn’t helping.

  10. Erin D. says:

    It looks like they just put Serena’s head on someone else body.

  11. Utibe A. says:

    They airbrushed the crap out of Serena’s body. Why though? I’m happy to see some change for once, but they didn’t have to do so much airbrushing. I guess we have to take what we can get.

  12. Kitty B. says:

    what happened to Serenas body O_o

    None of their heads match their bodies and all their faces look force!!

    Nonetheless Go TEAMUSA!!

  13. Indigo says:

    They were so busy airbushing Serena,they forgot to hit that other chicks tits… one looks flat and the other looks like the air is leaking out.

  14. rightnow says:

    Kinda crazy looking cover. Anwy; GO TEAM UK! HA!

  15. Syreeta says:

    Did they cut off part of and photoshop Serena’s hips and thighs? Nope I’m not compelled to buy the issue.

  16. Jinx Moneypenny says:

    Yeah… Serena looks way more slimmed down than usual. Plus the cover is showing more of Hope’s figure than Serena’s.


  17. Tif says:

    As if I needed another reason not to purchase Vogue. It’s shameful the way they’ve airbrushed Serena’s body.

  18. cami says:

    wow, one of the worst magazine covers Ive ever seen. smh

  19. Tiffany says:

    Annie Leibovitz is the worst! The juxtaposition of all of her work is so AWFUL! Why is Serena falling off of the page while the white woman’s entire body is shown. Was it that hard to center the three of them?

  20. Marie says:

    This is so not Hope Solo’s real body! Her waistline does not look like that at all!

  21. lilimarlene says:

    Airbrush? Yeah, I guess. More like “hmmm…I’ll chop his and her and her heads and stick’em over on these bods (hope my creative director doesn’t notice!” Talk about amateur.

  22. SizeQueen says:

    Ohhh myyy gawwk,… HE IS BEAUTIFUL,…*dreamy eyes* I hope he’ll do well in LONDON,…mmhmm
