Both people look like they possess as much charisma and appeal as a cucumber.That cover is a failed attempt at kink. I hope the eds inside are better.

I think it's a good cover. Maybe they over did it with the hair pulling and lascive pose but I think Vanessa looks absolutely stunning. I love the Jerry Hall inspiration. Marlon is one super sexy little f*cker but I agree that here , aside from the hair pulling, he doesn't impresses me at all. I prefer the single cover, even though the fold out with the appartment in the backgroung is intriguing. Excited to see the main ed as always.

Gorgeous cover! I love Vanessa so much! She can adapt to pretty much any theme!

I agree. I think the only thing that would have made this cover work would have been two charismatic models. This cover is just bleh. I don't think it's BAD, it's just... there....

It's a nice cover, I love the colors and text layout. It's just the right amount of sex appeal when it's just her picture, the bike is a nice addition (I'm personally a sucker for them), and when folded out it's a good surprise with Marlon.

I wonder how many here would react to just seeing her picture first then the fold out like a consumer who buys the issue would.

I do agree with people who are saying this could be more charismatic, imagine if it was actually Jerry Hall on the cover with Tony Ward pulling her hair

The problem with this cover is that they're both way too camera conscious. They would have had to relax these two better, I don't know what the problem was here because you rarely see that kind of "bothersome awareness" on a Meisel shoot.

The most obvious problem, is as others have alluded to, Marlon's fixation with her hair. That's not where most guys would look when they have a hot chick pressing her *** to their crotch. I'm thinking they did it because that way he could flex his biceps to the full advantage. But that kind of beef cake reasoning doesn't mesh with the Mötley Crüe set up. And the way Vanessa looks into the camera is not consistent with a fired up mud-wrestling groupie either....she's hardly in the moment....it's more like she's asking "Is this ok Mr Meisel?"

Anyway, it's a shame, because I really like the hair pulling part - it could have been really sexy.

Nice pun with cruise collection and cruising ... You know (gay) cruising, right ?
* check the movie Cruising with Al Pacino, you'll understand. And Marlon is very popular model among gay modelizers ... I'm sure

This cover is very offensive to women. yes, indeed. but this looks like a sarcastic shot, non ? yeah you are a macho man (out loud), you won't satisfy me, baby ... I need more than that (the voice inside her head)!

I really don't know if this is supposed to humoristic, or if this is just dull ...
This doesn't move me ... At first sight, you can see this as offensive, and then you realize it's just dull.

^Right? And I thought I was a bit crazy for getting a "cruising" reference there...a little rough trade for Cruise.

^No, that makes sense. But what is she doing there? Man-bait?

^No offence at all, but why the need to bring back Kate Upton again? It was last month and we do not necessarily have to compare the two covers. And if I had to compare, I'm not sure which one is more "fashion" and less "tacky" than the other... The more I see this picture, the less thrilled I feel about the contents. I feel the same I felt with Vogue Italia's previous issue: a certain will to sound sarcastic or an attempt to raise some controversy. The only difference I see (but that's purely my eyes and my point of view) is that last month's visuals were actually pleasing to look at (I wholeheartedly second Iluvjeisa when she mentioned the "bothersome awareness").
