I think this might be one of VI all time worst cover, perhaps the worst cover in its history. The graphic design is too crappy to be the center focus. Hopefully, Weber only shot the main story...

I have respect for Franca and may she RIP, but let's not pretend she hasn't been responsible for several last years of horrible VI issues!!

This is just awful!

Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that Weber booked two covers back to back!! Both so terribly bad. I cannot even begin to think of anything good/interesting here. From the casting to the layout, to the photographer, all bad!

Weber's work is so dated, very 90's it doesn't fit to this time. Stop Weber now!

Can't they just get Tim Walker again?

Has the pandering to teens era started for VI? Why put Jaden on the cover..

Indefensible.

Were fashion magazines always targeted at tweens? It's really gotten out of control the last few years.

1. January should have been Meisel. Where is him?
2. Why Bruce again? Two consecutive months is too much. There are so many great photographers out there that should have the chance to shoot for the cover of Vogue Italia: I&V with their timeless portraits, Jamie Hawkesworth and his raw style and more..
3. They have given so much freedom to Bruce, in fact, this cover feels Bruce but doesn't feel Vogue Italia at all. When will the magazine find again its direction?
4. Considering only the image, I really don't think it is a cover worthy shot at all. Adding that terrible text that looks like a paint artwork by a kid makes it look even cheaper. What was in their mind?
5. The theme: A brave new world. Okay. But I don't see any connection between this title and the shot. So why that picture?
6. Last but not least: this is not Vogue Italia!! Where is the identity of the magazine?

In the cover rumour thread I had said I was really anxious about where was the January issue of Vogue Italia because I had a bad feeling and now proved myself right because this looks terrible to me and considering it is Vogue Italia, it looks atrocious.

This is tragic, and it's so sad. When I saw the title ''by Bruce Weber'' I was literally like ''omg noooo''.
Definitely a new low for VI, and probably the worst VI cover I have ever seen.

I wonder if Franca got so sick at the point they were preparing this issue that she didn´t have any saying...? perhaps Weber was doing them a favor shooting back to back issues?
