I don't see why one would expect something highly original, it's a "top models" issue so it's about the girls themselves, the point isn't really to showcase their work but to "advertise" them -as models, not as girls modeling clothes, don't know if i'm making sense - it's not about what they do it's about who they are so a bland group shot is totally fine by me, there are a lot of models that i love and it seems like they're looking gorgeous which is all i'm asking for in such an issue

Seriously, why is Chanel there? She is everything from blue-chip in eds and ads...very weird. Possible replacements for her would have been Irina, Freja, Tanya, Du, Snejana....prob more.

TFS got a mention on fashionista.com:

Quote:
And Some Actual Top Models...



Frillr
has a bizarre link to The Fashion Spot, where a sorely thinned image of May's Vogue is under heated debate.
The cover photo is actually a fold-out featuring "The World's Next Top Models," including Lily Donaldson, Doutzen, Coco, and Agyness.
While some Fashion Spot critics are calling foul at Chanel Iman's placement behind the cover fold, we think that's perfectly appropriate considering the fact that Chanel is just sixteen, has only walked two seasons, and - excuse us - is posing next to Jessica Stam.
What is puzzling: The absence of Lily Cole and Russian bombshell Tanya D, whose first YSL campaign came at fourteen and who is, quite possibly, so gorgeous she's from another galaxy.
As for missing Gemma Ward, well, she was already on the cover of Vogue three years ago with Gisele and the Big Girls. At the time she was the youngest person ever to land on a Vogue cover, but now Chanel Iman may have her beat.
We'll call the Vogue office tomorrow and see if we can obtain a better cover image. Meanwhile, check out our favorite FashionSpot graphic from the post below.

I think it just means that she maybe has something big going on with the fall campaings, maybe. Or that she has shot lots of US Vogue editorials lately, that will come out in next months.

oh and yay for sethii and TFS!
I randomly bursted about this in irc channel but no one understood - here I have 10 pages of solid conversation!

I wish US Vogue would do something more creative and artistic with their covers. They all look like boring portraiture, most of them done in a studio. Can't they shoot on location somwhere? Or use some more interesting clothes? Yes, I know, they have to appeal to their market. Well, one can always dream.

Bravo Vogue... they must have visited tFs and realized the only way they were going to get you all to shut the hell up was if they put some models on the cover.

Tell me about it Sepia! I mean, I've never wanted them there anyways, models bore me, but I didn't think that this issue would be so hot button to those loyal "we-want-models"-ists.

^One little cover a year? Of course not! I'd like to see at least half of the covers with models on them, more if I'd get my way.
