I love it when people say "Meisel is back!" and then they get disappointed I'm sorry but that's a fact. In my opinion, he's never been running out of ideas, since he's always doing the same, which isn't necessarily bad as long as I find his work consistent.
I'm quite surprised to see her. The shot itself isn't bad, I just dislike the layout of the cover... And the colors aren't really exciting either.
Hmm, I don't know, I feel like I don't even have an opinion this (and that's definitely a rare occurrence,lol) although I do love Jamie and it's nice to see her on the cover, but this shot just leaves me cold. Poor cat looks uncomfortable, though.
Hopefully the full editorial will be more cinematic and less static and dull. Otherwise I don't see what's the point of this. Unless the drabness here is the spirit of our times
I don't see what's mediocre about this cover at all. There's something mysterious and almost cinematic about it. This is very Meisel, the only thing bothering me is the brown frame. But the cover definitely makes me want to see more.

There really isn't a lot of focus here. My eye is going straight towards the cat. The "concept" or therefore lack of isn't drawing me in. The editorial is going to be terrible unless there are multiple girls which I seriously doubt. And although manly this is the best I've seen Jamie photograph in quite some time.
I like the image well enough, and while I appreciate it for being a little different, it does nothing for me. The thing that bugs me most is the "Spirit of the Times" tagline, the mood of the picture is so mopey and enervated that if that reflects the spirit of the times then is he (or the editor) trying to say that we are in a depressing era? That may very well may be true, but I don't know if I want that acknowledged. I like the border and the font.

You read my mind! For me, if Meisel is going to put on the cover one of his favorites who has not really achieved hot girl status or better, I would much rather see Meghan Collison.
