Looks like they couldn't decide what to do with her left foot so they gave her two right feet? My right foot is better than my left foot, my right foot-

Nothing mind-blowing altho I have to give US VOGUE props for using a relatively out of the box, non-static image (save for JLo's Hair which seems impervious to the effects of the wind machine) for the cover; that wind-blown effect is quite beautiful and adds a bit of visual intrigue, something they're not really known for. ( Also Glenda take note on how to write relevant, issue specific COVER LINES that matter).


However, I can't help but think how dull J Lo's cover is when compared to Debra Messing's epic, utterly romantic, wind swept moment in time caught by Herb Ritts in 2003. There's two things that really stand out about this cover:

1. Altho there's a lot going on text-wise, the image is so visually striking that the words become secondary and compliment the moving image. The effect is ethereal, as if Debra a lithe, wisp of a genie coming out of her bottle to play on the beach.

2. How often do you see covers that maximizes and highlights the full potential of the garmet's beauty in full motion while the celebrity (Debra's half obscured face) becomes secondary? Rarely.

Only two simple studio shots for the cover story? Sounds like a rushed last minute job because Testino's shoot got cancelled.

you can see that they didn't more in the video (but all with the same dress) but I don't know if it's in the magazine.

I want to like Summer of Love and I do like it, but it is so muddled, there are good images like Raquel on the horse, Lea in the ODLR lace blouse, and the images with the kids are energetic and charming, but it looks like a mash up of contemporary hippies, gypsies from yesteryear with a dash of Sister Wives. I wish that the editors would have chunked the images into two eds, one that was OG or 2G with Raquel and Lea being hippies, and another that was a riff on gypsy life. I have seen this type of ed from Bruce Weber before, and the muddleness and the collages are kinda his thing and he produces beautiful images, but I think that for this ed, someone at the home office should have organized the printed product differently.

I'm really looking forward to Kate Moss by Tim Walker. I think this collaboration could turn out to be magical.

Oh didn't even see that review was posted, sounds like a fantastic issue, and Kate by Walker is superb.

Ellastica, i second your comment, while i dont think this is a dull cover, it sure pales in comparison to that Messing from 03, still one of my favorite celeb covers to this day.

Kate by Tim Walker somehow looks very Annie Leibovitz.
