Well huge kudos for being game to do this, she does look like her role from The Paperboy, even the wig! I certainly wouldn't expect Kidman to be willing to go this route for the magazine cover, but if the face was slightly better this would have been great.

^Thanks for posting. As expected... Well, provided I'm not fond of Laetitia's work at all, I would have had troubles to like it anyway but when I strictly stick to the composition of pictures, the ideas behind etc. there is nothing I find interesting, inventive or even eye-appealing.

All in all, it made me think of the magazines I used to love and love to buy a few years ago. Most of them have become caricatures of themselves and I'm a bit sad of this. V Magazine's evolution is probably the most symptomatic but I've noticed it with 10 Magazine as well. I was first unsure about Love then warmed up but it turned out to be quickly a little repetitive for a publication released only twice a year. Then we had Dossier who followed the same route and 032c isn't as spicy and tasty as it used to. Dazed and i-D have interesting editorials quite often but haven't seen any complete issue that wows me lately.

I used to read V almost page by page and I say read not just look at the photographs. Now the topics and themes have flown away quite far from anything I like.

The whole cover is unexpected, I expected something more conservative for her, but the deep-fired blonde=brunette hair is all kinds of awful. Hopefully, the issue has some decent editorials.

From the hair to the naked butts, they just don't work. Not even a nice try, either

looks like her skirt went on a 'trip' of its own; up and over her pastey white bum. justa hint of reverse butt cleavage would've sufficed this reminds me of a softcore version of Jem, one of my favorite cartoons when i was very young.

i like the milky quality of the image, Nicole has such beautiful skin, but think they could've pushed it further with say a subtle eerie neon cast to it, to be more seedy. even the hair and make-up had potential. the smokey eyes and dark roots are cool a la Debbie Harry but the somehow the balance is off here in the rock'n'roll stripper formula kinda boring but riduculous at the same time...

Really unexpected but I like the idea of challenge, and it's most definitely a tribute to her character in Paperboy.

I don't understand why they keep putting blonde wigs on her now that she has gone back to red hair.

This is definitely inspired by her character in The Paperboy. I really like it.

oh yuck... i don't care if this relates to her Paperboy character or not... it's hideous, and I hate it.
