very unexpected cover shot, at least to me. I love it, she looks great! the layout is quite bad, though.
kate hasn't been the most interesting model lately, but I think this editorial is going to be an exception. I hope she smiles again, huh?
can't wait to buy it!
I wasn't expecting cover like this, that's something different and unusual and I like but not crazy about it. Can't wait to see her editorial.
I want to get the issue, does anyone know where is it possible to buy Vogue Brasil online?
Everything's class above the Šss, and then the tattoos bring it down.
Personally, this reminds me of when Testino shot Natalia Vodianova for UK Vogue, her nips barely covered by a couple of letters on the cover. Nudity, male or female, is just not something I want to see where I don't expect it, and I don't expect it on the cover of (a) Vogue. Bare women is something I expect will be tucked away on the top shelf of the newsstand where I don't need to look at it except at will.

I've never understood what is so "fashionable" about the nude body, except that it serves as a good clothes hanger, or what makes nudity (whether it be partial or full) "tasteful" for that matter. Just because your nude in a fashion magazine rather than Slitz doesn't make it any more "tasteful". Certainly in practice the difference is marginal at most.
I like the cover overall - the layout, the colors, the shot of Kate - but it's hard to appreciate it when that @ss is in your face. I also like the 'splash' of red, but the fact that it's a lipstick mark quickly ruins it.
I didn't say nudity in general is fashionable, I said I think they made it in a fashionable manner, which is different. You can make a statement with nudity, Kate started her career having to take her clothes off and has done that a zillion times, as well as many other models for many other fashion magazines. Besides, she is a fashion icon (despite how banal that word became), so she already makes a fashion statement by herself, IMO. Sometimes it's just more about the mood, the person's look, the meaning that person has, than about an especific piece of clothing. Although she does sell those bracelets. I like how they stand out.
But well, I don't have any problem with nudity. I don't feel offended, I think a naked body can be beautiful, that's how we are naturally, and one can make it look porn, soft-port, banal (e.g. Terry Richardson) or one can make just a beautiful image which is also sexy, but not necessarily sexual. Not that sex is a problem either - especially being Vogue Brazil.
Also, I don't get the problem with her a**. Is it because I'm brazilian and used to the appeal as*es have here? I don't even have interest in women's as*es. We see her tits everywhere, as someone pointed out, so why not change the focus a little bit? It just makes so much sense for me. And I do like the tattoo.
Totally agree with thiago about the layout though, and god the people they highlighted... You don't put Niemeyer, Caua Reymond and Mayana Moura on the same line.

I like this shot, because of its modern Odalisque portrait feeling and Kate looks absolutely stunning. It's great to see her facing the photographer instead of making that head up pose she's been sporting lately.
However, the text disturb me, IMO it kinda ruins the magic of the shot; and the lipstick should've been elsewhere, because it looks a bit like a tatoo on Kate's back.

Ooh La La......the sexy Kate we all know and love and she really looks good here. Testino has done and I'm sure......on this evidence....will continue to do great work with Kate. Also the a** doesn't bother me one bit, does anyone really care about this anymore.
Sure the editorial will be equally as impressive.
