It's very nice I like it. It's great that it's not Kate Upton who's on the cover, British cover is enough for me.

Love the red cover and the whole idea but the look on the face is not appealing...

How can this be by Bruce Weber? .. I like Jessica, I think her W story last year sold me, and she doesn't look bad here but the styling and pose must've sounded so good in theory that in execution it all backfired.

The main story looks like it's going to be great with all those collages/vacations theme Bruce makes, especially as they're all actresses.

Despite the vivid red color, the text (sex & sensibility - interesting... Of course it stars Kate Upton ) and the 80s feel, it all comes together for me! I like her as an actress, she seems very versatile, she looked so different in The Help. But I agree she does not dress 'great' at events & red carpet...

Are they really trying to portray her as a fashion icon? I don't think they are.

This, and I'm sorry but I think she's hideous.

yeah, although I can definitely relate to the confusion once publications get too fond of a specific actress.. I didn't get Jessica either, especially if you look at her looks or fashion choices like Gandharvika mentioned, so if you start seeing her on AnOther, W, Vogue, you start wondering what's it all about.. thing is, I think the fascination is actually on her acting skills, the energy she evokes in editorials and the way she carries herself on the red carpet, I thought every single one of her appearances at Cannes this year were just stunning.. it's not even about the dresses but the nonchalance and elegance she has, I think. When I saw her there I thought okay, that's why she's invading all the magazines.

^ I think that's why she's so popular, as well. If you think about it she really is unusual for an actress in that she had her breakout role when she was about 34. Which is really something amazing for an actress who isn't a character actress.

I like her facial expression but the excessive red fabric is a no.

Sure they are.

The jury is still out on Vogue Germany specifically since I was speaking more generally when it comes to fashion and fashion magazines. Others have already listed her most recent appearances (W, AnOther, Vogue Italia, Marie Claire). She was even on the cover of Vanity Fair's most recent style issue and part of their best dressed list. Let's not forget her recent gig as the face of YSL's Manifesto. She also gets heaps of coverage on her red carpet style.

They do the same with many actresses, I don't think getting lots of coverage in fashion magazines equates to being considered an icon, even in such a fickle industry.

Well, that's the difference between her and other actresses. She is a current fashion darling. Others are not.
