I see it oppositely, their styles are one genius take to be honest. like how did Carine ever come up with an idea to take the big headband in the middle? if one thing that's not quite right, the Louis Vuitton top looks a little bit sloppy. I would choose something lighter.

Oh no. Weber was a bad choice to shoot Kate. His style is too soft for her features. She needs someone with a sharper aesthetic to make her features pop. I was hoping Carine would have had her shot and styled in a very dark, vampish fashion. Something that would silence most of the naysayers. US Vogue did a better job with her imo.

^ Disagree. Weber's photography really suits Kate. He's managed to bring out her humanity, instead of her being a pair of tits with a head.

I guess it's not "high fashion" enough, but I think she really works well here.

SO far I'm feeling like a 18yrs old person who thought he/she would get a car as birthday gift, but got a computer instead ....

Agree

I've never been too big of a Carine fan and I kind of think VP improved after she left. But I do think that this fashion book is better than the work she did at VP. I don't like the cover much, but I think the first two editorials posted are great. I don't like everything about the issue, but I think it's pretty good overall.

I think some people had their expectations set too high. It got a lot of hype, but the fashion industry is good at that. It wasn't going to be completely unlike anything we've seen before, because we've seen Carine's work in the fashion industry for years.

In terms of a new magazine, I feel there's something missing that needs to be in place before the printed content of CR turns into something properly compelling.

I certainly wouldn't blame it on restrictions, because I believe that people turn out their best work under such conditions - their talent becomes energised as it has to keep finding new ways to express itself, despite the barriers in its way. Carine's talents should be more than equal to any restrictions she's currently having to work within.

But of what I've seen so far, there's nothing that exceptional that it would warrant exclusive production on special paper at a raised price, and I'm not here to underwrite the continued presence of Carine's name in the world of magazines just because she did a great job at Vogue Paris.

I do appreciate that if she left it too long to produce a publication, she might have lost momentum. But a half-hearted vision of fashion with her initials slapped all over it feels like a sign that this magazine is definitely a work in progress, and nowhere near ready to truly astonish anyone.

I get the feeling that the great issue will be somewhere down the line - when she gets that missing element in place, puts that missing person on her team, or finds that missing reason for doing any of this in the first place. Those pages need to burn with purpose, they need to be alive.

If the first issue is good....everything else will fall into place. So far I like it!
