She's akin to Emilia Clarke for me; captivating and absolutely beautiful. But it doesn't quite come through in the photographs well. I like that it's full on summer mode for the August issue, I'm going to give them that. But otherwise I think it's a rather lacklustre image. At least she's new, she's not Kim Kardashian and she's not in an angora roll neck sweater. Silver linings!

Everytime I see a Cover with her on it I think they could have made more out of it.

I thought she was wearing a dress splattered in wet sand until I clicked on the larger image, and man what a letdown it was to see this bigger. Terrible dress, vapid expression, terribly awkward pose. Bah.

Nice blue sky, but that shot is so lifeless. I can see what they're going for - natural beauty, an easy life, nothing fussy for summer - but that makes this image seem more like an advert for holistic women's health via vegetable juicing, rather than a new-season issue full of fashion advice and excitement. It's as if UK Vogue have forgotten they're a real fashion magazine. Sometimes I think they're on perpetual holiday.

Is it Vogue? Really? Looks like H&M catalogue.

What a mediocre cover. The picture is not flattering at all.

I'll have to see the tactile version before I give my judgement, but still, it is a bad year for British Vogue. I only bought the January issue with Gigi.

Seeing my subscription issue, the cover shot makes a little more sense, because the story is like a tomboy on the beach, with b/w shots of menswear and knits. Still as boring as hell, though, even if her face has character.

Being 200+ pages, this issue has slightly more heft to it than those summer leaflets, so that's good to see. Not too much serious fashion going on, but nearer the back of the issue, there seems to be plenty of features, from jeweller Jennifer Meyer, boxer Nicola Adams and Netflix show The Crown, to coverage of the Vogue 100 Festival, which contains a shot of Kim K, plus one of Grace Coddington leaning out a window, so there's something for everyone.

Looking at the fashion editorials again, to me, they look no better than something you'd get in Elle. Unless this is selling cheap, I wouldn't rush to buy it.

I miss the days when August was truly exciting, the first sight of new season ads, like a tiny fix of a drug, with September ahead, as the main dose, and October and November the issues that would explore the themes further. Now it's all just celebrity offspring and half-hearted work on every page. There needs to be a Dogme for magazines, a back-to-basics wave where discipline and creativity get welded together, and we get something worth the money.

I just really don't get her appeal. She so harmless that it kind of comes across as pedestrian. Where's the personality? Oh yeah....I forgot....that's not in fashion right now.

It reminded me of Christy Turlington. I was very surprise when I saw her photoshoot. I never thought that she could be very great in print.
