ONE Asian name on the cover list. And not the first to be mentioned....somewhere down, towards the end.

And of course Kendall must be mentioned before Gong Li.

*sigh*

Gong Li should be happy... She's not even famous here.

eat your hearts out, Beyonce and Kim
a chinese designer featured on the cover is better than a chinese celeb or model imo.

I was really hoping for Fan Bingbing to be on this special edition cover but that's really a stretch since special editions need to sell and having a not so well known Chinese actress in the US such as Fan Bingbing on the cover wouldn't reach the sales they wanted - thus we get Rihanna, a global superstar, on the cover. At least she's wearing a Chinese designer and not some basic international interpretation of China. Fan Bingbing might've done Iron Man 3 and X-Men, but she only appeared on the Chinese release and wasn't even the lead on these movies respectively.

As for the cover lines.. of course they're going to put these household names. The average American won't buy a special edition magazine with names full of actresses that ring 0 recognition. I'm beyond happy that Gong Li's name made it on the cover even if she's trumped by Kendall (which I don't even get why she made that cover list since her outfit wasn't that much of a stunner). I'd take Rita's name and put it instead of Kendall. Well at least Kim didn't make the cover headline, I'm happy about that. But who am I kidding, they always use the same list of names over and over again.

Of course Vogue will opt for the most flashiest dress, worn by one of their most insufferable and attention-seeking coverstars. I'm beyond trying to make sense of Anna's obsession with Rihanna and Kendall. Actually glad Gong didnt get the cover. She's above this little pet project anyway.

Not surprising, Rihanna stole the night.

FKA Twigs & Rpatz shouldn't be mentioned on the cover imo.

Hoping that since she got this cover, she won't be on US Vogue for the rest of the year.

where can I get this??
Rihanna shut down the Met. Kim and Yonce look like dusty old hags next to her. She certainly deserves this.

I'm not surprised at all that Rihanna is on the cover. She was hands down the best dressed and she was the only A-list celebrity to wear Chinese couture from an actual Chinese designer!!! Can't wait to buy my copy.

I doubt she was get a Vogue cover this year, but you never know with Anna. When she loves you she LOVES you. I'd wouldn't mind seeing her on the cover again (I might be the only one).

did you guys read this, interesting indeed

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/ar...ardashian.html

I wonder if the list of these names on the cover is in order of the folks Anna love? Or perhaps its in no order...lol

Wasn't Rihanna on the cover of last year's Met Gala edition? And that didn't stop her from getting the March issue.
