I hate the Footballer's Wives editorial. It looks cheap and trashy, even though that's what most of the WAGs represent. It did make me laugh, though, because the shot where they are sitting in the stadium looks exactly like pics of the English WAGs during the 2006 World Cup.

I love it. I don't get the shock over the high gloss, super sexual stuff in V, they have been in that direction for some time right now. Personally, I love it. I love the intentional, over-the-top tackiness of the footballers wives ed.

She is a part of it. Her cover has its own thread because it's the V Spain issue. I think it should be here too though. The other one that's being posted.

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.
yeah but that's the thing : now Vogue Paris is way overated and I'm tired of their oversexual editorials and the pornochic vibe that put Carine Roitfeld at the top position of this magazine ! Now the main question is: do you think that the reader (and us) is looking for sex images and porno inspired photos and bad clothing when he/she is after HIGH FASHION models and clothing and final images???? Yeah I think we all got the point! We don't need that much sex ! Sultry and seductive poses are always welcomed but now every mag HAS TO put one or more naked models in order to sell ! Isn't a sign that there's something wrong here?

LOL i really like the irony of the footballers wives ed...the headlines, the aestethic, everything is depicting reality. especially the "i don't like to show off" photo, it's the most real and funny of the ed.

Eniko's face shot looks the best out of the four. Natasha looks...exaggerated, Lily looks strained and Isabeli just looks like a hoochie. Absolutely love the Footballers' Wives ed and can't wait to see more!

This had the potential to look good but none of the covers appeal to me, considering i like all 4 of them as models.

Speak for yourself darling...

I think different people are looking for different things and some of us would like a little sex included in their high fashion imagery. I don't see anything wrong with a naked model being included, all fashion is inherently about the body so as far as I'm concerned nudity is a part of fashion, sex is a part of fashion. I don't have any set mental limitation about how much sex I can't handle in an editorial. For the life of me I can't see what is particularly offensive about these images, I don't think anyone is going to pick up a copy of V to get their jollies.

That said, this could be part of a broader discussion.

Anywho, I think that Txema editorial is looking gorgoeus, very lovely and sensual - can anyon ID the models, I can't quite place some of them. Hope that it is included in the American edition as well.
