and might i just say, Apolo Anton Ono is one of the most gorgeous men i've ever seen. if he wasn't a speed skater, he'd have been a model FOR SURE. lol

That cover is a train wreck. I wish I knew what was going on inside Anna Wintour's head. I posted about it on my blog yesterday and yeah, King Kong was the first image that popped into my head too.

correct me if i'm wrong, because i've never bought the shape issue before, but doesn't it cover people that are diverse, culturally and physically, and have articles about health issues? i honestly don't know why people are so against a shape issue in Vogue. do you really think that only people of a certain body type read this magazine? i certainly hope not. fashion isn't just about clothes, it's about looking and feeling fabulous.

the video is quite interesting, and the rest of the pics looks amazing. they just picked the wrong one for the cover....

why are ppl saying the cover wouldn't look bad if Lebron wasn't there?
Gisele looks as if she's falling to the side; it probably wouldn't look as awful as it does now, but it still would be a horrid cover

i think shaun white and daria would have made a fantastic cover...
she always looks great when she's paired up with a not-so-obvious guy...
i loved the ed she did recently in gq with seth rogan...

That's a good point. I have to stop making fun of this cover for a minute to applaud the fact that LeBron is a new and exciting cover subject (even though he looks a little too excited on the cover, ha ha).

And I thought about it and the cover isn't so bad if you look at it in a "Beauty and the Beast" kind of way... I suppose it can be construed as something witty rather than just plain comical.

But what a waste of potential hotness where LeBron is concerned. I mean, have you guys seen the latest Men's Vogue with Alex Rodriguez on the cover? I almost swooned to death because Rodriguez looks so imposing and sexy. What I'm saying is that imposing can look good... imposing doesn't have to look like a mess (like it does in LeBron's case).

Oops, I was trying to be positive about the LeBron cover... oh well. Ha ha!
