I love the styling on the cover, it suits her.

At least it's not Rihanna. I wouldn't be surprised to see Rihanna again and again.

Frankly, I'm sort of disappointed that she looks relatively normal on this cover.

This is horrible, i don't like anything about this cover, the unzipped jacket is so unnecessary and not something i wanted to see, and the hair is just nasty!

.. .. same here, something about raunchiness that's began to appeal to me in the last years. We'll be 40-something pervs if lucky (plain tacky if not).

Well, yeah... I guess it's a reaction to the contagious lack of creativity we see from most mainstream publications that makes us literally enraptured everytime we face something raunchy or cheesy. And seeing it now in higher resolution didn't change my mind at all (or if it did, it's only for the best... sigh!), there seems to be so much things wrong on the cover shoot that it ends up looking genuinely beautiful in a totally new way. I'm almost feeling the same looking at the latest Vogue Paris cover: too wrong makes it so right.

Absolutely. Every time something like this comes out (not full blown tacky but just about enough for now!), I can't hide this grin like when you see someone get away with something that relatively challenges this established (and contrived) line of perfect styling, perfect pose/expression, defined aesthetic, which exists even in publications that parade themselves as the ones that break down these parameters (Purple for example).

I guess I still want 'beauty' as I (unfortunately) subscribe to it (think that Grey cover by Sarah Moon) but when it comes to monthly, less conceptual publications, it's all show time for me unless something really good comes along.

This is so good, she looks so natural and beautiful. The style is on point and its obvious people are saying they don't like it due to the cover subject alone and are nit picking faults.

What a jacket! I love it. The hair is perfect actually. I love that shade of blonde. There's just something weird about the face, maybe if she closed her mouth.

Completely spot on. This is exactly what turns me off these days... to the point when someone talks about the "best-posing" model or flawless styling, I begin to scratch the back of my head. After piles and piles of magazines literally stuffed with images of that kind, the first thing able to make my eyes more or less happier than average is random styling, weird poses, awkward expressions... I seriously think I started to treasure flaws and mistakes as the last precious and interesting part of fashion photography (while this being said, I'd love to see, every now and then at very least, some purely beautiful stories that don't even need this tiny bit of analysis to get my brain going).

one of the worst covers of the year! The hairstyle and angle is not flattering to her facial features the shots wher her hair is more straightened look much better. Not loving this at all
