This is beyond horrible. The facial expressions are awful. The only cover that I like is Adriana's for Spanish V. I would never call Lily and Natasha sexy. Sorry but it is a bad model choice.

They might offer you that for Lily's cover

Thanks God I'm not in the minority here, thinking it's just awful and tasteless. I love Natasha and Eniko but I just find those covers tacky, borderline vulgar. It's not a matter of lack of humour, as some could think, but those four shots are really unappealing to me.

Perhaps it is just the continuing shift toward a sexier aesthetic within the industry lately that brings arguments like this into play, but personally I fail to see how any of this qualifies as porn. There is nothing more sexual here than what you would see in Vogue Paris only that V has used its signature kitsch trash aesthetic in its depiction of nudity. The scratch off nipple covers, the garish makeup, the tabloid subject matter of the 'Footballer's Wives' editorial, it all seems very, tongue in cheek. Vulgar but completely on purpose. There isn't anything truly indecent here, it is just that it is presented in a way that is knowingly trashy. I don't even feel that this is altogether sexy as much as it is ridiculing the porno-chic that passes for sexy in a society where sex has been completely commodified to the point where we equate a series of static symbols as being "sex". Exposed breast here, fake tan there, bleached blonde hair, bikini, lather, rinse, repeat.

The one thing I actually like about V lately is the fact that they haven't lost their irony, this whole thing seems like a joke in a sense, I just wonder who the joke is on.

The face shots in #1 are all too horribly photoshopped I may as well pass out on judging considering how headache-inducing those photos are.

The small cover previews look nothing special, except that V has taken another step in making their acclaimed magazine look more vulgar than ever. Oh well.

I agree I don't see anything pornographic at all. This is just tacky but not pornographic tacky. We've seen worse from Terry.

What a waste. I thought Adriana Lima would be a part of this. Lily's is the best for me. The make up is nice and her expression is sexy. Natasha's mouth looks weird and Eniko's never done much for me. Isabeli, unfortunately, looks a bit like a drag queen with this kind of makeup.

This is indeed trashy, but at least it's intended. Personally I'm a one for trashy, every once in a while.
Natasha, Eniko, Isabeli and Lily are the perfect model choices for this, I can't think of anyone else more deserving.

The Footballers Wives editoiral is incredible, I can't take my eyes off it.

^ Agree about anything, maybe all this look kinda weird but I love this and will definitely get the issue with Natasha on the cover, because she looks amazing, Eniko's one is the worst, though I love her, Isabeli looks old than she actually is but I still like it, Lily's cover is also good. Can't wait to see the full issue.

None of the girls look good, but Isabeli looks worst by far. Hello, Mr. Fontana. Just awful!
