The Conde Nast empire has expanded to Poland released their first VOGUE issue earlier this month, with the cover shot by superstar fashion photographer Juergen Teller. But not without controversy, it appears that the shoot, featuring Polish supermodels Małgorzata Bela and Anja Rubik, is shot out front of the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw, which was built during the Stalin era.

The controversy: The models are posing with a Volga, a reference to the Soviet car industry, which represents the past (not Poland’s present). On social media, the Warsaw intelligensia commented that a Polish photographer should have done the shoot.
As one Polish commenter said: “My kid could capture a better photo on a school trip.” Ouch.
