I really like this, it's beautifully understated.

With a more unexpected model it could have been cool and interesting, but with Lara it just feels lazy, and we're left to compare it to one of her gazillion covers for other magazines.

From the Editor's Letter:
Quote:
This issue marks the start of the Model Series, consisting of five collectable editions featuring international supermodels on our covers (including some Australians, but we will keep you guessing), each shot by a different photographer. I hope you will collect all five and keep them in the beautiful purpose-designed box that will be on sale next month with our April issue.
Pretty interesting initiative!

I actually really like this. You can never go wrong with a close up of Lara. :p

...I agree that the layout of the cover and font does make it look like a W cover. Not that's a bad thing or anything...

If this is a collectors edition is their more than one cover? what exactly makes this a collectors edition?

Usually the words "collector's edition" are shorthand for "let's try suckering people into buying this by claiming something special on the front, in the hope that they won't notice that the rest of the issue is even worse than usual" - so my heart sinks when I see them.

The collector's edition, and the next upcoming 4 issues, is more of a initiative by the editor to create covers/editions that have a collectable quality i.e. coffee book style. They've even produced a box you can put them in.

Lara Stone for March 2013
Vogue heralds the new season with Lara Stone.

"I am thrilled to have Lara Stone grace the cover of Vogue Australia," says editor-in-chief Edwina McCann. "Her face is synonymous with our times, that gap between her front teeth and her beautiful curves are unforgettable. For the first of our five-part Model Series we took the unusual decision to run a headshot on the cover – when it comes to Lara, her face says it all."
