I really like this, the setting, the overall mood of the shot and Jamie, I think she was a risk that paid off, this is intriguing, and it makes me want to see the editorial. But I agree, this would have been better without the frame.
When I saw Jamie was the cover model, I rolled my eyes cause I was afraid it would end up looking a little drag queen-esque. But I must say I'm pleasantly surprised I love it, the color tones are lovely, I like how it's a little disheveled looking with the messed up hair, the purse laying on the counter, and those open chinese food cartons, but it still looks fashion-y. Not their best cover, but better than some of the stinkers we've had this year.

Even though I absolutely loathe Jamie, the cinematic mood of the cover left me interested for more. There's something noire and moody about it, it's quite captivating. I just hope it's not OG.
Completely agree! You nailed. I'm already a fan of Jamie, but this is leaving me wanting more. That shot alone is already evoking a very moody, cinematic feel, so I'm just anticipating the main editorial to be quite as good as the cover.
