Anywho...the dress might not be awesome, but it is a nice dress. It would have been a waste if it were Baby Phat (well...) I wouldn't want my brand assiciated with this cover, that's how bad I think it is. And I am normally not an avid cover hater at all...

i couldn't agree more, i just don't get a hype about Calvin Klein dresses i even wouldn't wear them, it looks super simple in not a good way, smth like i sew for barbies when i was a kid

I don't mind hearing people critique a cover if they say why they don't like it, or how they'd have done it differently. That's interesting to read, it adds to my own view.

The one thing I do not like is the pose - Gisele looks like she's trying to escape. It looks like it was shot mid-move. Perhaps the aim was to capture a pose that doesn't look too posed. Yet it looks more awkward than 'action'.

Would better poses have been... if she was draped over his shoulders (making use of the way sportsmen and models are humans of similar height) or perhaps with her back to him in a wisecracking pose, as he pulls his crazy face.

maybe there wouldn't be complaining if the cover was actually good...
i mean, honestly, do you think it's a good cover?

i like the two people on the cover, i like what gisele is wearing...
i do not like the pose...i also don't like that he's screaming...

Is black cover subjects screaming going to be the new trend with Vogue along with Trentini jumping? I can't help but draw parallels to Jennifer Hudson's cover which was another instance of a person made to look considerably less attractive than they really are. Doesn't that run counter to what a fashion magazine is supposed to present?

I actually think the cover is decent, much more eye catching than previous US Vogues.

The background is awful!!!!!!!!!! I was hoping they would go for something like Daria Werbowy did with Ronaldo last year (?). An outside, fresh, eye popping editorial.

This looks terrible!!!

And how classy of them to put words like "diet" on there! I mean, its not like its VOGUE or anything

They look like two separate entities and not in a good way. It looks like Lebron was photoshopped in.
