Anna's cover subjects have become so predictable

I hate that whenever black models are used, there's an article with the ed... Use black models every month and stop wondering if fashion is racist already I'm excited to see the ed, though!

The Vogue Diaries video is fantastic, Leibovitz comments on the sky (Australian skies are very unique).
Funny how in the video, the photograph morphs into the cover of the magazine, with all the text. That to me clearly illustrates how disgusting and hideous all that text is.
Photographs are now up on Vogue's website as well.

Would like to see the cover in better quality, but i think its a nice cover shot, and does she have her eyes closed? Thats rare for the cover subject not to have eye contact, but i love it.....what i do not love is the dress, yuck and this is what all the fuss was about?Oh Catherine you can keep it!

I completely agree, lol! I thought the editor's letter that accompanied Kiara's cover in 1997 was irritating enough. More than ten years later and they're still trying to justify their choices.

thanks for the dress info ...
though i don't care about the cover ... i like the fact Ms Wintour "let" an australian designer did it.... though i guess she was more excited about the exclusivity of having this dress designed FOR Kidman's movie ...

Oh that's so weird. I don't really follow US Vogue but you'd think Watts would have gotten when King Kong was out. Weird .

I'll reserve judgement on the cover until I get a proper scan. I'm excited for CHanel and Jourdan's eds though it's a bit dampening to learn it's a part of another soul-searching racism article rather than just...eds.

^I'm trying to reserve judgment, but I think the cover looks completely awful. Everything about it.

I'm with you on that. It's like we already know it's racist...

I was just about to say the same thing. I don't know what Anna will do in the feature but if she just uses Jourdan and Chanel once in the magazine to "prove a point" then that's so dumb

OTOH, Way too much text, and overall just plain sucks
