Pretty cover.

But it could be read the wrong way by people. I see allusions to the British occupation of India in this cover.

Posh dressed up in a sari? It could be offensive to some.

Looks far too serious and the colours are dull.

helmut newton, I don't think Indian people will be offended. In these pictures it's the Indian style which is dominant (and portrayed respectfully) - plus I don't see any references to Colonialism/Imperialism.

Don't get me wrong I like Victoria Beckham, but this cover is awful. That wig is horrible, looks like her hair when she had them extensions

I like the sari and the lack of accessories, but her hair looks bad and the background is too similar to last months issue.

She does look good in a sari, but her hair is awful. I don't get why they used the same background they used for the Aishwarya cover. It seems like they didn't put much effort into it.

Great idea, just not executed well. Love the sari but they should have left her hair cropped, that would have been interesting....

Well the editor, maybe stylist and of course the magazine it is featured in are all Indian, it's not like it's an "Indian bride" theme for a British fashion mag or something. Indian people should see it as a compliment to Indian culture that a Western figure is dressing in that way and promoting that style of dress to Europeans and Americans (who are her core fanbase).

Many people who go to India wear the traditional dress as a sign of respect to the country, so what's the difference here? Just because it's Posh?

Oh please, what about Claudia Schiffer wearing Chanel on the cover of Vogue Paris August 2007? Reminiscent of WWII?

Well, failure is an art like everything else.
