I guess she's not going to be on the April cover now, is she? Wasn't that the rumour?

Adele has played it so well getting the British and now the US Vogue cover. I hope Kate Middleton is watching closely if she ever decides to go down the Vogue route because I believe that's how she should play it. The cover is beautiful but it's lazy in the sense that Mert and Marcus have applied similar techniques (referring to the Rooney Mara November 2011 cover). Going to let them off though because it works. I'm sure Adele will have a editorial, it wouldn't feel right if not. Review sounds very good.

Thank you so much for the review, surrealseven. This seems to be a really solid issue. I'm looking forward to McDean, Lindbergh and Demarchelier's editorials.

Whatever. Ads galore, I'll get this.

It's great that Adele is on the cover but not so great that she resembles a madame at a brothel. It seems high fashion cannot find a medium between celebrating and sexualizing the assets of curvier women. I would have liked to see them take a more demure approach to the cover like they do with everyone else on a monthly basis.

I feel like it's too grey.. like it's the start of autumn or something. It would have looked better if she was dressed in some brighter colors or with a lighter background. Maybe used a similar color scheme that they used when Lady Gaga covered the magazine.

Adele's a beautiful girl and I'm glad to see her on the cover, but I would have liked to see something more inventive than Vogue sticking her in a black dress with her chest out, it seems a rather uninspired approach to dressing her shape. In terms of fashion inspiration, I figured out how to resort to that easy solution when I first came into possession of those body parts.

Big boobs, big hair... it's difficult to not be amused by the fact that the hair and cleavage create the illusion of a smaller physique. Vogue hasn't broken the mold here. Not that I care and most forum members don't either (which is great). I'm just tired of the media creating a story around her being on the cover when there's no story there. She's talented, powerful, strong... she's another sensible addition to the March cover archive.

As for the eds, I'm beyond excited. I'm surprised by someone's comment here though, is this really Sorrenti's Vogue debut?

I kind of agree. I'm so happy to see her on the cover, and she looks great (although honestly it would probably have been more of a challenge to make her look terrible cause she's beautiful to begin with) but they essentially styled her exactly the way she styles herself; voluminous 60s-esque hair, winged eye liner, flattering black dress. Granted, she looks sexier than I normally think of her looking, but still, something unexpected would've been amazing.

I am so excited to see this! Nicki by Camilla Nickerson and Steven Klein sounds like it should be bursting with creativity.

LOVE THE COVER!!

But judging from the review, Adele doesn't have an editorial?! o_O

I was hoping Anna would ignore the existence of Nicki...
