I do think she looks gorgeous but..I agree with the whole styling of this very old portraits of wives..like this is how it shud look

that was my biggest pet peeve in American history last year - people who didn't know what antebellum meant. And here I am not thinking, and using it incorrectly. But I still think the styling makes me think of generally that area, but obviously Reconstruction. When I first saw the image the first thing I thought of was of Beloved.

I think everyone here knows what antebellum means. We've got a smart group of people on TFS and I'm sure our schools taught us that antebellum means pre-Civil War.

I won't dispute that the cover looks like it could be the style from the '50s or '60s. However, one can also date it back to the antebellum. There's something about the collar and the little bow.

I don't know how I feel about the cover. It looks like Chanel sat down for a yearbook photo.

^ I actually had no clue what antebellum meant, maybe they only teach it in US schools?

I still hate the cover, i was waiting for it to grow on me.

I think the vacant stare ads so much to it. It reminds me of those vintage portraits in which the people are always very stern or vacant...you wonder what they were really thinking. I don't get how the styling is offputting, I doubt they're trying to suggest anything.

I quite like it, Chanel looks lovely.

OMG,Here it is!!!
I dunno what to think...I was expecting something different.I like the vintage look but It should have been a bit more colourful, it's more appealing.Dunno maybe it will look far better in "person"... I must admit I love the headband and did you guys noticed that in the preview shots posted in the Cover Rumor Thread,Simona McIntyre wore the exact same headband only in a different colour...Maybe there's a link between those 2 shoots

I'm also hoping for another cover. Can't wait for the content, I wonder what their theme was for this issue, the 50's??

she's in total Luella SS 2009 ....
collection that I loved .....

catwalking.com

imo it looks more like when the Slaves got freed .... once they achieved the access to Universities etc.
And I'm sure it's not innocent (or maybe we shouldn't see every black on a cover as a direct sign to Obama election etc.)

I like it ... but there's really something lacking .... just one thing would make it look gorg' for a cover !
you wonder why they take off these things there were on the veil ... maybe it disappeared during some other shootings ...
