It's great and so fresh to see an older model on the cover of any high fashion magazine. But the portrait itself is bland, bland, bland. I'd much prefer a closely cropped image of just her radiant face framed by her trademark hair. The inclusion of that jacket looks like some vintage Claude Montana piece which in turn, gives the portrait a generic late-80s vibe-- instead of a modern vibe.
Don't know if it's already been said but Grace's cover was shot by Arthur Elgort
