Oh I love this! I want it on my wall now! The colours are so beautiful, I love the playful expressions and the makeup.

It's almost a kind of street snapshot of a music group who just left a gig.

I love Jourdan and Arlenis in this best.

Great job by Emma Summerton and her team - it's perfect

maybe chanel or sesilee or w/e were talking about the content inside, not the cover.

Perhaps it's an all female issue? All female photographers/models/stylists/writers? Is that ground breaking? I don't know

I LOVE this!!! I'll be really excited to see this on shelves when it reaches the US.

Also, many people need to obviously look up the definition of "ghetto" or actually visit a ghetto before using that term to describe this. This is far from "ghetto".

I love the eye makeup. Sessilee's expression is amazing! I hate the pink font but overall it's a good cover.

I like this cover and i like how Chanel and Sessilee are all serious and Jourdan & Arlenis are all playful.
Why are folks already moaning about who 'should or shouldn't' be on the cover Probably the 4 top black models around right now......I'd imagine it's as simple as that.

They look like an updated version of Robert Palmer Video girls.

Well they look like some damn classy ghetto bitches to me, and in my opinion that's never the case with real or fabricated ones(yes, Beyonce, you).

I like the cover, the girls look gorgeous.

Is it The Youth Issue? (doubt it is because of cover text) And if it is why all UK magazines decided to make youth issue at the same time.

Chanel looks too fierce! Love the cover!

Their hair is just pulled back, not cut short right?

No, I really don't want to moan because they look great and the setting works well with their "chic" styling, also happy to see Jourdan. The pink font bothers me, looks like it was done with paint.
I don't think they look like "ghetto bitches" at all, they look really cute and their makeup goes well with their skin tone. I'll just keep my opinion to myself about who I think should be on the cover.

The graffiti is so unimaginative and typical. Why? I mean the magazine editotrs aren't that stupid to not realise the meaning of this.
and no i will not just be happy cause it's more diversity.
