In the UK, we must follow the US, as latino/a is used to describe someone living in the US and of Southern American descent. I don't ever see it used to apply to a European. They would sometimes be described as 'Latin' as in having 'a Latin temperament' but never 'latino'.

This has just made me wonder, as an aside, do mainland Europeans learn Latin as standard in school/college, I spent years having to learn Latin language, history and culture at school.

What I dislike most about this cover is that they're gonna blame poor sales on the fact that it's a model cover as oppose to it just not being an appealing cover to begin with. fierce Gissy cover would definatley move units but I'm not so sure bout this one. They used her as a purse.

To clarify: my "King Kong" comments had NOTHING to do with race. I was responding to the manic energy and the poses. The only time I mentioned LeBron's race was to applaud the fact that he's the first black man on Vogue. I suppose I could have chosen to ignore that fact, but why not celebrate it?

Meanwhile... why oh why didn't they choose that second photo of Gisele and LeBron?

Gisele's body looks so awkward in the chosen cover.

I kind of love that Doutzen has her hand on Apollo's a$$ like it's a side table.

The editorial stuff is pretty new by Vogue standards, so that's a plus.

It is an interesting cover (Lebron reminds me of the Hulk), but I do like that sports editorial concept. I want to see it in it's entirety already!

Well, it's his creation on the cover so I think he'll sorta like it
