Eh, easy there! I know it's subjective, but really? Better than Kate Moss' first 4 covers? This girl lack range, I'm sorry. She's more on the Lottie Moss level for me - beautiful but not engaging enough. Also, the photographers you've mentioned (except Harley Weir) are known to bring the best out of anyone no matter how new or seasoned. So I wouldnt credit her at all .........

No, it's not better than Kate's first 4 covers nor than Kate's early career. Actually The Face had a similar following (or maybe even bigger) than today's Pop.

The only reason why people compare her to Kate is because of the early Calvin Klein contract. That is the ONLY thing they have in common (that and probably starting age). Kate's modelling skills when she was 16 were way above the dullness Lulu is presenting cover after cover. Kate's work with Corinne Day was far superior to anything Lulu is doing.

And while Kate was actually a changing point in model casting, contrasting with the bombshells of the time, Lulu is pretty much average looking for our current model standard. Even Lara Stone was more groundbreaking when she signed for CK. The equivalent to her, today and speaking of CK contracts, would be a 17 year old plus-sized model.

And this is coming from someone that isn't a fan of Kate.

Every other model is called the "next Kate Moss." Remember the Audrey Marnay-lookalike who fronted Jil Sander about a decade ago? She was also called "the next Kate Moss." I don't think she's in the business anymore.

Oh, I think it's kind of cool that they also have Brooke Shields. Make sense why Lulu was recreating her pose and etc.

Too many covers for my liking tho. It should have been only Brooke's and Lulu's third cover. The othes are unnecessary (and not so good, imo)

I wonder if Kate Moss and Lara Stone also has a cover. jk That would be kind of fun.

The Brooke Shields is perfection

I don't mind multiple covers when they're this good!

Wow, the Alek cover...not what I expected. It's very severe. I don't even think that's her real skintone actually.

Just thinking about the different covers.....

If they didn't do a few they couldn't tell these stories about Lulu / Brooke, about Raf and Raf's Calvin.....

The team at Pop look like they've really thought it through and engaged with some ideas. You can see from the words on these covers that they're provoking us to think and respond and enjoy the FUN


I was actually joking about Kate Moss and her first 4 covers btw

I must say the Calvin Klein concept looks cool and Brooke's cover is one of the best I've seen since Kaia's cover, but haven't we seen CK extensively already in ID? Is Raf buying out all the indies, most likely due to his 'youth' direction? I'm slowly growing weary of this collection and it's not even October yet.

I know what you're saying B98. It is the biggest story of the season though, so inevitable.....

I guess that's why I like the Raf story being more fully developed and rounded-out here. The Rick Owens content excites me too
