I dunno about unique though. As history tells us, 3 or 4 will rise above it all and the rest are those who are not Gemma/Stam. I still stand by my statement that they all look alike. That is how a look is born and that's the marketing strategy that is being used to promote this. It's been proven to work. I dont think its offensive at all to claim that they look alike.

Still a landmark cover in my opinion, meant to be collector's item and I hate to gush some more about Meisels ~genius, but this is his vision and he made it happen. He knows what sells and how to sell it. He still has it and he worked on it slowly while we were whining all along about how VI had been so bad last year. Argh.

The styling is so good. Natasha is really amazing when she isn't all sexed up and/or forced poses. When she is simple and minimal, its really nice to watch. Although I dont like Anna S. (I still don't know why, somebody needs to make me a believer) She looks nice and Kinga is always a plus for me. Not to sound like an idiot but who is Zaha Hahid?

A simply fantastic cover - well deserved for all three girls The editorial is less striking, but it does seem to represent a more muted, cautious period in the world due to economic turmoils. The juxtaposition of the photographs with the other images are very futuristic and urges us to look forward instead.
Love your interpertation of the editorial, I couldn't agree more.

She's an architect. She did the Chanel Mobile Art Pavilion.

Finally the January issue and this is a must-buy for me!
I'm so happy Anna S. got the cover and Natasha Poly worked with Meisel! The ed looks a bit boring but I love the concept that it connects with architecture. But the casting is great!

^ Same here

Mr. Meisel never fails to make me excited and happy EVERY month! I love both cover and ed, though I usually hate Anna S.

i really like the cover. the ed is very nice too, although i think sessilee and anna selezneva should be in more shots, instead of karlie... anyway... i love the concept, i love when fashion meets architecture

What does this mean? Is there another Meisel ed in this issue, besides 'From Function'?

How dreadful. There's that awful brownish shining texture of the models' skin that Natalia used to have on her awful Calvin Klein ads.

i haven't read all the pages .... but it seems a lot of people are excited ....
i like the fact the styling is influenced by architectures ... it's very interesting ...
but what seems weird is that the new year starts approx. like past year started (same models even) but with a step forward in the futuristic vision ...

and i agree with Luxx about
Quote:
Another fashion meets architecture collaboration and the year isn't even a month old yet. Buildings are the new paintings it seems...
as i think nowadays architecture express more than anything else the power of technology and future .... it's not painting is dead, but architecture can express the society dreams of sci-fi future more ....

i don't see very greatly the image then i don't know really what to think about the colours ... but i'll sure buy this ... it's VI jan. issue ... so

i'm really surprised VP let MA Sauvé does so many things outside them ... what's going on ? Vogue US, Itw and now VI .... oh well she's not the fashion editor in chief so she can do whatever she wants i guess ... go MA Sauvé ....

I was so excited when i saw the thread title, 3 gorgeous new faces but the cover is such a waste of their beauty, and the ed is even worse, dull and drab hopefully the other eds in here can save the issue.
