Faith, a boquet of cyber roses for you.

I'm not the biggest Testino fan but this editorial is pure poetry in pictures. I'm in awe...there's a symmetry here that seems so natural and graceful. Raquel and Bryan Clay are just flowing...

Could someone explain to me the appeal or the reasoning behind having one person in three different editorials in one magazine? Especially when that model is in that magazine every month.

I mean, I get that Anna likes Caroline, but isn't this a bit ridiculous? It's almost like Caroline knows some dirty secret that Anna doesn't want getting out or something. There are many great models, why now change it up at least once in a while.

ETA: I love that Perfect Ten ed though.

There seems to be quite a lot of controversy in the media over the use of LeBron and as already mentioned the king kong connotations. I like the concept of using athletes but it just seems like a gimmick to me.

I was about to say. Am i the only one who finds the cover offensive?



LeBron James seems to be embodying ugly stereotypes about black men: The wild, savage, white-woman-obsessed beast.

I wonder wtf Annie Leibovitz or Vogue where thinking.

^ I don't find it offensive at all I think the comparison to king kong is pretty offensive

i dunno I just thought that he was making that face to portray like his game face you know that he's tough and what not... I think people are reading WAY into it.

I mean I don't like this cover and most of the editorials were pretty dry for me... it's def an unflattering photo of both LeBron and Gisele but I think that whole king kong scenario is a bit ridiculous sorry I think people need to just accept it for what it is... and if Lebron and Gisele are okay with it then I dont see why others are making a big deal out of nothing.
