US Vogue July 2003 : Demi Moore by Mario Testino
Some eds are just good for sucking the coffee you might drop on the floor....


Please, just 1....


IMHO, I do not like this:

This is what I call "Styling for Dummies".. I mean "play Venus in Furs" and what appears? an artificial sensuality!!! (sorry, Eugenia).... Lou Reed would have got repulsion for that...Venus in Furs stands for something much wilder than that.

I really loved this editorial with it's clear images of wonderful models.

Well done Steven Meisel!

I don't know why you singled this particular editorial out iconemod. I have seen a lot worse than this!

Good lord! Stop being that aggresive .
Softgrey is the coolest person ever . Don't be rude to her
Her post is productive : your link doesn't work!

Hate is too strong a word but I didn't like an ed with Gemma in the february french vogue.

she wasn't criticizing...the link doesn't work for me either. it says "too many redirects..."

anyhow, i went directly to bwgreyscale and i liked this ed too...the pic of eugenia in gucci is stunning. i've seen waaaaaaayyyyy worse eds that this in marie claire or elle.

That's exactly the problem, too much perfectionism, too much "Wanna-shoot-it-like-Bailey-or-even-Avedon".

Exactly, I chose it for causing some polemic, some discussion, let's crash our points of view. It was my intention not to pick up the lousiest ed, because it would be too obvious and boring.
I picket it also because it dictates, it commands "Play Venus in Furs", among other silly , empty slogans. They needed to have a better, deeper understanding of

1) what the role of Lou Reed's masterpiece Venus in Furs in the ed is.
2) how to suggest ideas for the real American reader, they do not go to their closet, saying "Play Venus in Furs", IMO, that's ALLIENATING
