I think the paedophiliac comment goes a bit to far. I certainly don't feel the paedopliliac vibe (thank god I dont)

I agree. I think childlike is a word I'm more likely to use, and I think that's supposed to be the point in the first place. I don't have a clue what other people are thinking when they look at the magazine, but I don't see that at all. If people want to look at magazines that aim to be more edgy than pretty, there are other magazines out there to read.

i think the flower in siri's hair kills the whole fierce look she's giving.

and with a name like lula, how can it not be full of girly stuff?

Oh and since people were asking when it comes out, it comes out in March doesn't it? It normally comes out in September and March.

I agree it didn't even crossed my mind this "peado" ideas, I like Lula exactly because it's girly, dreamy, sugary pretty and disconnected, everything i'm not in real life. I never get tired of it. It's without a doubt my favourite mag.

I have to agree. Pedophilia is something completely different than this, which I'm sure we're quite thankful for.

Im pretty certain Lula wants their mag to be pretty/feminie/lovely. Its like their schtick. and come on now, if people interrpret it to seem like pedophilia that isnt Lula's fault. the girls are just dressed innocently and girlish. Its not as though they've got a bottle and diapers and piggy tails- *cough cough* drew berrymore *cough cough*. I mean the girls are never doing anything sexual. Come back to Lula once you've seen ANY susan eldridge/ terry richardson editorial and you'll think differently.

Also I did see an issue of the Kirsten Dunst one at the Urban Outfitters in LA. Perhaps it was just a one time thing.

I love this cover! I'd say it's much more edgier than the usual Lula cover, but this change does not bother me at all (chic as opposed to girly is never bad!)

Do you all know if only the U.O.'s in large cities (LA, NYC, etc) would carry Lula, or do you think they all do? I live in the US, but not in a major city, but I'm dying to get my hands on these magazines!

I don't think the smaller Urban Outfitters carry Lula. I've been to one in Modesto (a smaller city in California) and never spotted one. You might try subscribing at:

I love this cover! Especially the contrasts with the pretty hair and flower next to the hard make-up and evil stare, it's awesome. I'll never ever tire of Lula's dreamy aesthetic; it's what makes Lula, Lula and that's precisely why I adore this magazine.
