The Vogue Repeat

For the April issue of Vogue Paris, supermodel Gisele Bundchen plays cover girl. The cover was shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

This is the first cover for new editor Emmanuelle Alt and it's a hit, except for one thing. The white crochet Dolce & Gabbana dress dawned by Giselle isn't the first time it has been on a cover. This is actually the third time this D & G creation has been seen. The dress was previously shot on two other Vogue covers. The first was the February issue of Vogue España, where model Constance Jablonski was seen in the same white frock. Next was Britt Maren on the April cover of Vogue Deutsch in the same crochet dress. This is all in the year 2011 and yes I know what you are thinking, "Didn't the year just start!?" Yes, yes it did. And it doesn't make sense to me either.

It's a stunning dress, and defiantly cover worthy. But three times for the same fashion magazine publication. COME ON VOGUE! You are the fashion bible of the world and you're totally committing the biggest fashion faux pas. Not once, not twice but THREE TIMES. In this case, third time is not a charm, it's a curse.

So the topic on everyone's mind now: Who wore it best; Gisele, Constance or Britt?
