The cover could've been more dazzling but honestly this is the best way to end 2012 and start 2013. I'm so happy for Fei Fei .
I love the backstage video, so much ease and elegance in this girl it's crazy. Looking forward to see the full ed and buy this issue that's for sure.

The cover shot is definitely not my favorite one, but that girl is stunning. The video is quite charming as well, love the references.

I'm so happy for her! She looks absolutely incredible. It's so obvious that she's a great model, especially from the behind the scenes caps.

It's the worst thing in the world when a figured model like Kate Upton is gracing VI but it's the best thing when you have a Chinese drag queen on VI?

I think that if it wasn't Fei Fei people would be tearing the model apart for it being so boring.
Still though, congrats to Fei Fei. I'm just happy that it wasn't someone predictable.

I haven't seen a normal VI cover (like this one) for a long time. Great, I adore her.

I don't see anything drag-ish about this.
The large amount of make up only helps creating the character Fei Fei is portraying here, and I love it. Gorgeous cover.

Wow this is amazing, congrats to Fei Fei, this is huge

Couldn't recognise this girl is Asian at first though...As she does look like Bruna a lot at the first glance.

What a beautiful and sophisticated cover! Very reminiscent of China Machado's work with Avedon & Harper's Bazaar. Fei Fei looks so stunning here, so very happy for her!

I don't see drag either. Yes, her make-up is quite heavy, but only a beautiful Asian woman I see. What would people rather it styled like, a US Vogue cover? That would be boring, so give me drag any day. (Well, not really any day.)

YAY, good for her. At first glance I thought the hair/makeup was awful - and it probably is - but it kind of works for me, lol. The only thing I find strange is the decision to make it a foldout. Why?

The point i'm making is that everyone is giving this cover hype over the fact that an asian girl landed this, that's about it...I hope they decide to do less heavy make-up in the next 23 years when another asian can land an OG cover for VI. This cover doesn't even deliver, it's so bland...and I thought Meghan C's cover was awful...
