I haven't said this in a long time, but I really love these V covers. Granted, there is some airbrushing and the Fonda picture borders on being off ever so slightly, but there is something wonderful about seeing a host of beautiful, vibrant women over 50 being presented as fashionable, edgy and hip. These covers have a certain freshness and energy that we haven't seen from V in awhile. Their whole gimmick of issues centered around a theme can get old (and seem a bit like controversy baiting at times) but this is an issue that is actually interesting. We're entering into a bit of an age "trend" what with the all older men issue of Vogue Hommes and a few other recent fashion features where age was a theme, but I find it refreshing all the same. It isn't as though we don't need more of this.

Would have loved to see Charlotte Rampling get a cover as well, but still these are some of my favorite actresses so I cannot complain.

I love this. I love that there is finally an age issue devoted to older women and not children.

Susan's cover is my favorite, but I love them all, even Jane's. Jane's is weird, but it fits her personality.

The amount of amazing women within the magazine is insane. What an amazing collection of powerful and talented women.

Several interesting women in this issue. I happen to greatly admire Sigourney and Charlotte Rampling.

What's up with many magazines lately doing Age issues? First Vogue Hommes, then V Man, now V and probably more to come. I'm not interested in this issue.

I always dislike V's way of taking pictures but still it's nice to see Carmen and Iman inside and the covers .... lol yeah... Sigourney is the least bad for me

Charlotte!! .. and by Vanderperre + Rizzo (!). Great little interview, I love how she always mentions Yohji and how her answers just flow with wisdom without sounding too methodical.

I might get this.. finally they featured a bunch of people worth reading.

I got so excited reading the title of the thread, but saying the result is underwhelming is an UNDERSTATEMENT. Wow, what a wasted opportunity there.

Fantastic! Jane , what a legend!

If only Liv Ullmann and Vanessa Redgrave had been in this. I feel the same way about them as I do about Jane Fonda – when you look at their faces, you can literally see how rich their lives are.

I am so pleasantly surprised!!! Kudos to V! Out of all the 'Age Issues', Vogue's in particular, V has managed to represent these goddesses in such a modern and sophisticated way! Can't wait to get my hands on this
