I'm not his biggest fan and it's not their best cover, too much purple imo a darker color would have make it better; but I can leave with it.

Can't wait for the contents

yeah. I see that, too. a little cliché, I think.. and it lacks the extra effort you need to put on studio shots. Je n'aime pas. or something like that.

crossing my fingers for more covers.

I think her face looks void like she is just zoned out.

I agree on the antebellum south comment. Something about it almost makes me uncomfortable. She kind of looks like a young mum from turn of the century south or something, going to church/work/wherever, as opposed to a modern young black woman. I'm sure this wasn't their intention at all, and in fact, it's wrong that you put a white model in that get-up and it's retro happy-go-lucky 50s and if you have a young black model, it doesn't conjure up that imagery but Chanel is so beautiful, I wish they had made her look happy and vibrant. Maybe it's just the dull lip color.

I Totally agree. There is something very passive and a bit disturbing about this image.
