Don't rate Meisel's edit, for the first time, since I can't even remember when. It's such a dissatisfaction, considering how glorious the cover shot is.
I feel the exact opposite! The editorial is much, much better than what I was expecting.
That said, I think I am going to be skipping this issue. Vogue Italia has really been leaving me cold lately. It's just been the same old formula over and over again lately, nothing really interesting or compelling has been in the magazine for a long time IMO.
The cover choice was an excellent decision, however the editorial just does not live up to it. It's obvious here that the model is inexperienced, she's lucky she has Meisel there to direct her. The photographs just feel empty both visually and conceptually. Another model would have balanced things out. I will not be purchasing this issue.
Yeah it seems pretty decent. The cover is nice and the main ed is one of the most interesting things Meisel has done recently. I can't decide whether I find Laura appealing or not, but at least she provokes some reaction and makes me stop to look at her. Pier Paolo's ed looks very 90s, which I always like. I'm really really curious to see the whole ed by Demarchelier. Mariacarla is such a fantastic model.

MCB's editorial would've been straight up perfection if it wasn't completely styled in Gucci. Nonetheless, I like it.
Is anyone somewhat disappointed with Constance's editorial? It's very similar, maybe even part of the same photo shoot, from an editorial she did with Vogue Germany.
