Well, what are u looking at when u see a VI cover? Do you look at them with an artistic eye, or just with your perception of what 'pretty' is?? Amazing you say the cover doesn't deliver, but everyone else can immediately think of references, and feel that this is very modern. Sorry that u hate the cover so much.

Very nice cover.

I'm looking for a woman that doesn't look out like a drag queen gone retro I'm sorry you find women with overdone make-up so appealing

She was supposed to get a cover
earlier this year (2012), better late than never.
but personally, I don't like her... too pretty for my taste...
I am, by nature, a rather risk-averse guy,
and I would have liked to see Ming Xi,
Ji Hye Park (she did some test with Art + Commerce's team lately)
or why not Lee Hyun Yi since she has already worked with Meisel.

Yes!! Oh God I'm absolutely thrilled!! I have been yearning for Fei Fei to get a VI cover for a loooooong time.

LOVE it. And she pulls this vintage, haughty look off so well. Congrats Fei Fei! You deserve it!!

But she's a "real" model.


It's a good cover, very retro-looking, the make-up is too much though & I don't like Fei Fei as a model, there are prettier and more charismatic models out there, I'm sure. I guess I should appreciate the cover solely on the fact she is Asian and there is no such thing as diversity in the fashion world.

So I assume you do this every month, with every VI cover. (Joan-March, Carolyn-September, Meghan-October.) If u wanna talk heavy/drag makeup, that is very indicative of the VI aesthetic. (Steven Meisel courtesy Pat McGrath)I never said heavy, overdone makeup was very appealing. I said this was a great cover. There is more than just the makeup. What about how her hand is placed under the collar of that Chanel piece? A Chinese model, on the cover of Vogue Italia, with the headliner 'GLOBAL'. (Think about the recent explosion of Asian impact in the industry at the moment.) How do you interpret it, just a drag face?

The cover/screen caps are boarding on going close to drag, the make-up is a bit much and I'm not keen on the hairdos. Having said that it doesn't seem a bad way to start the New Year and congratulations to Fei Fei on getting the cover.

I cannot even say how extremely happy I am to see Fei Fei on the VI cover (my fave Asian model right now) but, to be honest, I don't like the makeup- it's too heavy... It kind of spoils the cover, to me Fei Fei looks more gorgeous with minimal makeup Excited to see the editorial though.

Fei Fei you look amazing! I'm so happy for her! This is truly historic to say the least! What a good way to start off the new year.

Yasmeen Ghauri is not Asian at all.And if anyone has that editorial from 1991 could you please post it?

This is not very bad... I hate the idea of "homages" and silly things like that, but it's quite decent.

Anyway, I can't really get why this cover is historical. She's a girl with two eyes, one mouth and one nose, just like the rest of the girls who have been on the cover before.
