I like the cover. It's very unexpected.

are they being serious ?
why isn't she wearing the wig ? why isn't armani next to her in underwear ?

what would have been unexpected would be Margiela himself on the cover ....
it would be more something la vieux Purple ....

yeah Scott Purple has gone mainstream ... for a some times now ..... but there they reach a f***ing limit !!!!!!!
it reminds me Beckham for MJ, Pamela for Westwood ..... some irony's going on in fashion .... but it's not tasty irony, unfortunately .....
fun and irony is nice when you're low-budget .....

^omg,it's not even ironic anymore this has really become a serious approach of late. i feel like so many of our faithful indies....designers AND mags,are selling out. look at A magazine next issue,it's porenza schouler curating(was Boudicca not avail or Sophia K.????). Qvest has changed alot since i remember it. so many of the 'quality' pubs are going totally commercial.

it's just icky to me to see diane von furstenberg on a cover of purple. last issues were one thing but as you say,this is overstepping it in heaps. where o' where has my purple gone.

I dreamed that Christy Turlington would star in the I&V nude ed, last night. Hope it comes true.

^ I want to have dreams like yours. I dreamt that I should go to my exam in military uniform

The cover is really bad, but it doesn't reach the level of being so bad that it's good, though they seem to be trying it, and that makes it even worse. I hope the contents are better.

Ewwww. How did they go from Kate Moss by Mario Sorrenti to Diane Von Furstenberg?!

The cover is unappealing, uninteresting and generally repulsive.

I am sooooo disappointed!!! Out of all the people in the fashion industry - they chose HER! Why? She's not even a good designer. HECK - shes not even a designer [nowadays]!!

i thought this was an amazing choice. i don't really think DVF got the cover because of her designing achievements, rather than celebrating natural beauty of a woman who looks natural and is comfortable in her own skin. i also doubt this supposed to be ironic on the verge of kitschy. it's playful and it definitely has this positive vibe. i can see nothing wrong with this cover, nor the cover girl choice. (and 'girl' i mean it lol).
