Ugh, i am dying to see the main ed! This is wonderful, it's exactly the Meisel for Vogue it that i love. As for Caroline in the background... i'm guessing she won't be in the back in every shot... seems impossible.
I think Steven again makes a statement. Watching Joan Rivers on QVC, she overshadows her guests, the models and the merchandise. It's the Joan Show and the customers calling in talk as much about the merchandise as they do about being a Joan Groupie. The personalities of the tele-hosts are as important as, if not more important than, the models because they represent the lifestyle, they sell the lifestyle that the customer calling in wants to create. How else would a size XXXL polyester-blend blouse modeled by a size XXS model fly off the virtual shelves of the tv screen if not glammed up by an overly-sexified tele-hostess? Even the runway models are a parody in this editorial, the type of model that would never be used wearing clothing that would never be sold to illustrate the point that teleshopping is about what customers PERCEIVE, not what they see. I think this irony will become clearer when we see the rest of the cast of characters on the inner pages of the editorial.
that is very interesting considering the comments posted in here..
it seems that Meisel got the exact reaction he intended to! he does know what he's doing after all
Moss - Stone - Boscono - Dunn
Abualrub - Beech - Chabernaud - Teixeira

the issue isn't out yet in my area and I've checked every single newsstand today (as I was in another city) but nada and it will be hard, at least for me, to get it before Monday since tomorrow is holiday here in Italy. sorry guys...
Not too sure if I like it or hate it yet. Some of the shots are a bit quirky and I like that, but others just seem like they were stuffed in to fill up the editorial. Natasha, Joan, and Caroline are sensational in this, I will admit.
