I feel that its unjust criticism. The whole argument of the model being inexperienced and preferring at 'top model' is not fair. These new models will always be inexperienced, 'empty' and flat if they aren't given the opportunity to work and learn their craft, and gain the necessary experiences to elevate their modelling skills. I'm sure at the very start of Natasha's, Freja's, Lara's etc career they would all have been inexperienced but were luckily given the right opportunities to grow.

MCB's ed is just excellent. And the main ed posted above once again just helps me make up my mind if I'm going to buy this issue

This turned out to be an awesome issue, the more I see the main edit the more I love it and MCB looks so amazing in that Gucci collection, which I love, the 3rd shot with her flapper 'do is my favorite, and Constance edit is so lovely/sexy.

i dont believe this at all. there are quite a few models who are new and whos started their career off and were able to prove themselves in front of the camera. I dont think this is a matter of whether a girl is new or not, but that this girl is bland period. There are quite a few of us who have gone from the Balenciaga thread to this one and still fail to see what is so special about her.

lol @ pic #8 in mariacarla's ed. why is she on an inversion table? it reminds me of my dad (he bought one randomly off an infomercial) it's so random! it could have been cool if she flipped over and hung upside down.

When Natasha Poly scored two VP covers in a row when she just started out, people were equally critical of the so called bland new girl. This is only Laura's second collaboration with Meisel and her debut for a major magazine. Give the girl a break. Give the girl some time. She must be doing something good, otherwise she wouldn't even be in this position right now.

The cover really reminds me of the SS 1999 Etro campaign, I'm sure it's been used other times, but I just get that image in my head and I find it very alluring, I really think Laura falls flat and gets lost between the set. On the other hand, Constance's ed reminds me of a younger Susan Sarandon, it looks unfinished and not as rich as it could have.
Marihenny and Shena's editorial looks more like a lookbook and it's just 2 pretty girls posing without any emotion.

Mariacarla's editorial is a highlight in this issue, the light is really flattering on the dresses and it's a change of what Demarchelier's been doing these past years.
Finally I think Uma looks stunning but it looks a bit unfinished, but it's still beautiful to see
