even V does it a little better than this. I think the black bordering hurts the covers for me especially, it makes them look somewhat like badly done showcards I've seen agencies put out.

I'm thinking some of you guys don't see the beauty and the power these covers have. This will show the fashion industry how many amazingly talented and beautiful ethnic models are out there, and how you don't have to go to the cookie-cutter mold of a model everytime, that is why they did this all black issue, to sort of exposing the elephant in the room in which you HAVE TO TAKE NOTICE.

Agreed but I don't make the covers...the choices that I've been seeing for Vogue lately coverwise especially with blacks have been bad AND demeaning. So I'm saying at least I'm not like WTF. But hey its like no one will be 100% satisfied it seems nowadays.

We should wait to see the full editorial before making our minds up - when we see the other pics Liya's shot could make more sense. I think it's interesting so far...

Chanel's shot is awful though...she doesn't look like a model and the styling is crazy.

Sessilee's editorial looks beautiful - very film noir.

I hope they will print enough copies

Not borders - frames! Because they know these covers will be famous and they want to save us time preparing to display them haha.

And I'm thinking from what you just said that you think these covers have merit just because the models are black and it's such a rarely done thing, not to be offensive! these covers just do not impress me, black, white, or oompa loompa.


yes, FRAMES I knew I was looking for a better word. but they are driving me nuts! I do think these may grow on me in time, maybe when we get HQs, but I am a little let down on first impression because I have been waiting excitedly for this issue since it was announced and expected just... something more from the covers.

This looks like a really great issue...feels very monumental...historic! I'm most excited to see Sessilee's editorial because the first shot looks GORGEOUS. Also, Tyra looks really beautiful...I know I give her a lot of grief because of ANTM and all it's and her ridiculousness, but, she really can take beautiful pictures.

To be honest, though...the covers don't really impress me that much. They're nice, but I feel like more could have been done.

I think you and I are the only one agreeing on this so far! There are so many ways to put the pure beauty of the models on display while still being visionary and taking ANY sort of artistic license with the pictures.

The covers look great! Can't wait to see what the rest of the shots look like. Jourdan and Chanel are having a great month...

OK I have examined Liya's cover and I believe Kinee Diouf is in this issue.

it's the 11th name down the list. 'Kinee Diouf' has one less letter than 'Jourdan Dunn' and that name at number 11 looks like it starts with a K, and looks like it takes up one less letter space than jourdan's name above.

I think they were going for a very 'cover' style cover. Framed in black, pure white background, and headshots. Just like in the 70s/80s. They want to focus on the fact that these girls are on the cover and what that means.
