I find this cover to be very, stupid.
Her pose is totally unrelated to what Marlon is doing. Who tries to be "fierce" while having their head yanked? And without Marlon the motorcycle seems even more unnecessary.
Just a bad execution of a bad idea.

Nobody's noticed that this scene with its motorcycle et al is set in a chic living room with the electrical plugs showing? Pretty random. Nice, but random.

Beauty is the climactic apotheosis of flowing elegance...

I feel like I shouldn't like it as much as I do, but I really do enjoy the cover. It's a great use of a fold-out cover, and Vanessa, for a newer face, seemingly falls into this roll with ease. Looking forward to the story.

This is a business first; friends second.

Not sure about this yet, waiting to see what the story inside looks like. Odd question, you might think I live in a cave but who the heck is Marlon Teixeira?

OMG when I see it I just want to laugh
Everything is so wrong in this cover. Im glad for Vanessas second cover but other than that I think Franca and Meisel are trolling us.
I really want to see the editorial because it can make the cover have more sence. Lets see...

The hairpulling was really unnecessary. Also, the interval between Vanessa and Marlon looks uncomfortable. I do like the idea of it as a foldout, though, mostly because I won't immediately see Marlon's side. I've had enough of him extra-ing around as a boy toy. His brand of sexy makes me cringe.

Definitely a strange cover to end the year with, but I really love it. Vanessa gives a wonderful feel to all her images

i really like the cover when you crop out marlon, Venessa really kills it so you dont even notice marlon after a while. But you can always count on Vogue Italia to stir some controversy, right? First, Kate Upton now this. I can only hope they'll surprise us again for January. Overall, i really love it (when marlons cropped out)

was the hair pulling necessary? i don't think so. could've been a nice cover, but i actually find it rather offensive.
