Guys this is ultimate 90s style !!!! Look back at the archives!!! The styling is very Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele! I think it's a tribute to those iconic supermodel covers where it was all about big hair, big make-up and those legendary Gianni Versace collections!!! I love lol.

On another note, are you positive Ann's ed is in the issue??

I don't feel this at all: looks cheap and trashy. more Glamour than Vogue

I like it. When I saw the smaller picture I thought that Candice's eyes could be a wee bit more intense, but looking at the larger image she pulls it off. I really like the head angle, body position and the hands, I guess doing countless shoots in lingerie and swimsuits makes a model very comfortable / relaxed with her body.

It looks like Meisel's VI work from a while back, but if I saw the cover and did not know which edition, I would have thought that it was Daria in a blonde wig on the cover of Vogue Paris - that's neither here nor there, just an observation.

The styling is doing a good chunk of the work, but that is typical Meisel, especially if Templar is the stylist, although I am not saying that he styled this shoot; and after tons of Natalia and Lara covers and eds, I have learned to not hold that against the model too, too much.

I guess this is Franca's "gotta sell a whole bunch of magazines in America" issue.

And oh yeah, I agree with whomever stated that it looks like Kimber from Nip Tuck

I think Meisel, Ann and Candice were totally expecting this "cheap and tacky" reaction from most people... if they read most of the comments here, they'd probably laugh at them because people are still going to buy this magazine, and it will sell well... that's a fact.

Definitely looks like old-school Meisel. Still, it doesn't feel very Carlyne Cerf to me, sans the jewelry. Something feels off or possibly unfinished...

Nice to see someone other than "the usual suspects" on the cover.
too much gold jewellery for my liking, kinda makes it look cheap...

I like it. The model is beautiful and this is pretty sexy imo.

I'm not one of those VS 'haters' so I don't really care which model is on but I'm not keen to the styling even though its intentional in a VI manner.

Ikr? Some many pressed people in this thread.

I bet if it was Freja, Sasha, or any bland new girl, with the same styling, they all would be like "Miesel is a genius!" etc.

srsly people, get over it.

Yeah this is really unfinished. Or involuntary. I know I would refuse to shoot that look....just awful.
