Charlize is effortlessly stunning and gorgeous and although the shot isn't exactly winter-worthy its still a fantastic shot.

Seen it all before, but no doubting it's aesthetically pleasing.
If I were to pick an actress for this magazine, Charlize would be right up there as she never fails to deliver.
As everyone else says this just screams SUMMER!, and although it is summer in some parts of the world, the US isn't one of them.

Now there is an actress i don't mind seeing on the cover of Vogue, and i always appreciate when they take their cover subjects out and about, and we do get to see what they are wearing instead of a torso, or face close up!

And despite just coming home from the sunny but cold day, i like this, beautiful cover. Thanks for posting, god bless Twitter and the first snaps of the covers they post.

It's not bad by any means, but after a year when Vogue gave us some really great covers, this one feels slightly disappointing.

A lot of people go on vacation abroad over the holidays. What dress is it, btw? Some resort collection?

Anyway, the styling here is wonderful - not just perfect but unexpected...it has all the hallmarks of a great collaboration between team members.

I agree, it's a pretty generic cover. She looks good and all, but nothing special.

And I'm not sure about getting a magazine with HPV written on it.
This sums up everything I think. Charlize can deliver, there is no doubt about it so why go for something so dull/predictable/generic and so cold? She just seems to be gazing over god knows what...She seems a bit on the bored/not right there side.. I am very disappointed. US Vogue have done way better this year. Thumb down for me, especially since I have been waiting for something major from Charlize for awhile.

Has any Vogue this year done an actual Fall/Winter cover with sweaters, coats..etc? What is with the aversion to showcasing seasons beyond Spring/Summer?
