Please stop asking for a review & scans. It just clutters up the thread with unnecessary comments. If someone has the issue & is willing to share they will do so... and we will be grateful for it.

Thank you.

I don't really care for the Kirsi/Roversi ed actually It feels like every shot is the same shot over and over as there isn't too much variety in Kirsi's expression. Non at all actually...she can do better.

incredibly boring.

The only thing i like is Dioni's ed. I don't normally like Dioni or EVU but together with the Prada it just works. I like Kirsi but that ed is putting me to sleep.

I don't like Kirsi's editorial either, although I think she is a beautiful girl. One or two shots would have been lovely, but all those identical photos together is a huge snoozefest.

To me, there is nothing boring about the Roversi/Kirsi feature. The 50s and 60s references are all over it....and I think it's quite varied...one photo looking rather Fonssagrives, another very Grace Coddington (in the 60s).

There's one shot of Kirsi that, at first, looks beautiful. Unearthly, yeah, but beautiful. However in the consecutive shots it almost looks like someone wearing a finely-crafted mask of white (the kind some Japanese kabuki actresses use) that it becomes kind of off-putting.

Christy's cover reminds me of Carla Bruni's cover from March 1993...

I think the main problem that I have Kirsi's editorial is that it's shot digitally (Roversi has been shooting digitally a lot more these days, which is probably the reason for his abundance lately). Roversi's work that I'm most familiar with and a fan of, is usually about his mastery of traditional, meticulous photographic processing. In many ways stylistically, it's very much like Tiiu's editorial, A Poetic Spirit. Stylistically, it has the same elements; they both have a look made regal by the styling, drapery decorative backdrop and vignetted light. However, it's so different because there's no special touch, no intimacy. The focus is so sharp, showing you every intricate detail-there's no spirit, no omnipresence, it's just what it is-just fashion; and for me, that’s where it becomes less interesting. When he was working with film, you could see the process so much more, therefore you could see the care.

Throughout the editorial, Kirsi's expression does have range, it's just very subtle, just like Tiiu. Their consistency makes it all the more about the garments because that's what Roversi does-create beautiful portraits of beautiful gowns and dresses, which is why he does wonders for couture. Kirsi does a good job; I always love how Roversi brings out this beautiful humbleness of whoever he photographs. But I think that this, like most of his work lately, lacks that silent passion that has became his style.

Boy, that's a lot of black and white and part of the beauty ed is B&W as well, but VI has also featured a lot of B&W so I should not be all that surprised.

So far the best thing about the issue is the cover, Im a sucker for Christy, her beauty is timeless, and i love the 60s vintage look of the styling.
