Lara looks gorgeous, but that doesn't explain why she's on there.

Imo, she's not even a face of the moment. Why is she considered one? Cause of that whole french vogue issue dedicated to her?

She barely walked any shows this season!
15 to be exact.....

I know...I wanted Stam to be on it =[

But the girls look great!

I think there is no better time for Lara to debut on US Vogue, she is indeed the face of the moment,
her debut on the May cover is just perfect

But to be honest, not all of them are faces of the moment. Maybe they just want to
make the cast a bit more recognisable.

As much as I LOVE this idea of using models, I find some of the choices a little perplexing. Is this just a cross-section of models? Or is it 'the faces of the moment'?

I mean the girls who really deserve to be there, are Anna J, Natasha Poly, Raquel and Lara. They are all relatively new and score most of the campaigns. Liya, Isabeli, Natalia and Caroline have had their moment. They've also had their US Vogue-Steven Meisel-Models Cover moment; Isabeli appearing on all 3 of those covers, right?

I don't find Liya or Caroline or Isabeli to be "faces of the moment". What does this even mean anyway? The faces of the moment as per the personal taste of Anna Wintour?

Personally, I would have prefered to see models like Anja Rubik, Sasha Pivovarova, Daria Werbowy, Jessica Stam, Freja Beha (even though I know not a possibility) and Lily Donaldson. They are the models that really score all the campaigns, covers and editorials. They should therefore be awarded accolades.

I mean, honestly, HOW many times must we revisit Natalia's story of how she came from poverty and married a Prince and blah blah blah blah blah!?! Same goes with Liya (as much as I LOVE her) - we've heard her story ten million times before!

Haha yeah. The 'quality' (ie lighting, white balance, photoshop) feels off, but it's the case with a lot of Meisel's recent work. I can't say I like the cover itself, the composition, 80's feel, hmf. But Natalia, Natasha and Jourdan's shots turned out great!

IMO, the only girls you could really call "faces of the moment" are Poly, Lara, Jourdan, and Anna J. The other girls are all quite established.

^I really think that that's the whole reason behind Natasha getting a lot of American Vogue eds.

Natasha, Lara and Anna have been around for a long time. Jourdan is the only new face.

They use these terms to attract people, by making the girls into a kind of breaking news story.
