Is it a thick issue? I mean when you hold it is it bulky?

Alexa looks good, but there's really too much text, again, it ruins the whole cover. The eds aren't really exciting.

The cover is okay. Half-decent, half-boring. The eds are marvelous! I'm so excited to get this. Nice to see Sasha again.

Ahhhh so thats where she got the Chanel clogs from...

I like this cover even though it isn't spectacular or particularly interesting in any sense. I wonder why they chose to go with very casual styling for her? Surely for a March addition this is a strange route to take.

I think Alexa looks very chic, but perhaps a little masculine? They should have chosen some feminine shoes to balance the toughness of the styling.

I'm so tired of UK magazines featuring Alexa Chung so prominently. While I realize she must have some status in the UK, she is largely irrelevant to international readers like myself, and every time I see her featured somewhere I have to Google her to remind myself of who she is again, and why I should care. And I still don't.

The cover, I hate. It's just... zzz... zzzzzzzzz... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

Zzzzzzzzzz...... Yawn.

I'd like to be able to say I expect more of UK Vogue, but in light of many of their recent covers, this is pretty much in line with the Deathly Boring they do today.

Looking forward to Sasha P's ed, though, and also possibly the "Boot Camp" feat. Raquel. I almost dismissed the latter because of the boring opening photo, but the second preview picture almost reawakened my interest.

Thanks for the info and previews, harrietcamilla!

Cover looks OK, what I like the most is the fact that there isn't anything pink on it!
Content seems very good, with all those top models inside they could've put someone on the cover.

..but this is a magazine for the UK after all. It just happens to be imported elsewhere.

I can't imagine it matters much to them that she's known mainly only in the UK, as that's where their audience is situated for the most part?

370 pages how great!
Patricia's and Sasha's eds look good on the previews, thanks harrietcamilla.
The cover: BAD, this girl really doesn't look good on all the pictures i see, no expression at all.
