I think that it is missing that one blockbuster element, especially one that would firmly place the cover in SS 2011. To me that cuts both ways, because this could be a cover from five years ago or five years from now; one thing that I did not like about the Mariacarla cover was the pants because that took the classic element away from the image, but at the same time there were people who liked the cover for that same reason.

I think the cover is ok. If I was walking past the newsstand and saw it, the bold colors would catch my eye. As far as Candice, yeah she's VS but she can look just as good as any editorial model. I was hoping they'd do something more like this look:

EXACTLY!!! I don't care for the gaudy gold jewelry but it gives it that old school 90s feel like she came out of the movie Grease.
I really like this, even though I knew it was going to get a lot of flak because of the obvious
I wonder if she'll get a huge main editorial too

I actually quite like it. I get a strong Amber Valetta vibe from this cover.

Reminiscent of the styling in an old 90s Meisel ed with Christina Kruse & Joe McKenna...it's good. I'm interested to see what Carylne will bring to this issue (as much as I love Karl's work it's good to have a change).

I believe the Emma Summerton/Edward Enninful shoot with the top black models should finally be in this issue...I mean they shot it way back in October .

God I really wanted to like this, but it's lackluster for me. I don't think Candice was utilized to her best extent, but I hope this does lead to a trend towards pretty girls on VI.

I really like it, Candice looks amazing and i love the old-school vibe. And don't get why people have against VS models, they're just like any other model in the business!

Definitely an unexpected cover and for that reason I like it, I also think its fun and striking and im definitely getting the Amber Valleta vibe from it

I don't think I'll ever be a fan of the whole 90s take on opulence, or models as conventional as Candice.. or bodies as exuberant (and impossible to achieve unless you're a gym maniac, let's just say it) as hers, but for some reason, I'm just so drawn to this.. for all the things I listed here, for the fact that a lot of magazines (including my favorites) would go to great lengths to avoid precisely this kind of thing.. this isn't refreshing in the 'real world', this looks like everything at the newsstands really, but for what it is and the place it occupies in fashion, I think it's fun.. and face aside, she really has a gorgeous body.
