I don't think so. I think it gives some people a great deal of satisfaction to take a phenomenally photogenic person like Kate Moss and turn her into a robotic looking neat freak.

Kate is so much more than that...she is truly beautiful. At least the small version of the cover doesn't show that.

To me, the cover looks like a career killer, but I suppose a very old-looking cover was necessary contradict the scandal-of-2006 issue. Grace's shot looks so beautiful!

I love this idea for an edit Karen as Grace is brilliant
The cats are wonderful... I adored Grace & Didier's book... The Catwalk Cats.

Thank you for scanning Luxx

I really like the cover, Kate looks very elegant and chic. I also love the Mona Lisa quality to her smile.

Kate's last cover was the Millenium Issue in Nov. 1999 she was also featured on the June 1999 cover alongside Maggie Rizer but I guess that one has been all but forgotten.

Thanks for Karen's part of Graceful Elegance, Luxx. I've just karma-ed you for that. I'd love to see the rest of it, though!

Thanks Luxx!

Can you please scan the Raquel editorial? Is it any good? Is it all studio shots?

finally. a model on the cover of US VOGUE! At least some thing we should be thankful for but I HATE THAT COVER! no personality at all, they took all kate's personality...

i wanna see the models edits, cant wait to see sasha pivovarova's editorials! at least i am excited for that! (is sasha's pic a photoset or just one pic?)

^Sasha has a photoset. So does Maryna, Tanya and Raquel. They're all part of the same edit as Karen's where the girls portray Vogue editors.
