The Testino ed could have been gorgeous with a better model.

^ I agree, why not use an Indian model if you're shooting in India? Bhumika Arora, Pooja Mor, Neelam Gill and many more to choose from. Ellen Rosa is not very convincing in print.

Ok after the whole Kendall "controversy" I'm over this whole, only Indians in Indian Vogue/India please!"

Fashion is international... this whole controversy around India makes it sound so insular.

I still to this day don't understand how and why Alexa became so popular Can't wait to see Edward's take on this magazine.

Ellen looks like she's on the verge of falling asleep on almost every shot, and the same thing is happening to me just by looking at these photos.

I don't think I'd look twice at that editorial if it were in a free supplement, let alone pay good money to get hold of content like that.

Half the shots look like they could be lifted from a Next campaign for holiday clothes, if they decided to splash out on a location shoot.

What an awful set of images! So that's the editorial which is supposedly so good? Hard pass for me! For all the hype that surrounds this girl she almost always comes us short in print. Would gladly have taken another girl. The styling on the other hand is actually surprisingly good.

Im surprised at the negative comments regarding the Testino/Ellen shoot, I thought it was quite lovely; the location and the lighting are both beautiful in my opinion.

The location and the lighting are fine, it's Ellen who's as interesting as a wet towel that drags the whole shoot down.

I did not follow the Kendall controversy at all, nor am I saying there should only be Indian models when something is shot in India.

Merely suggesting that when a major photographer such as Testino is shooting different editorials for different magazines in India it would have been nice to see an Indian model, especially considering Indian models are rather underrated in what you call the 'international fashion scene'. Surely Testino had no problems shooting Dutch models only and exclusively for his Vogue Netherlands editorials shot in Amsterdam.

It's simply about pointing out a missed opportunity, rather than making strict demands or trying to create controversy.
