Look at the size of Meisel's name on that cover, you might as well have had the man himself on the front.

The composition somehow reminds me of Natalia Vodianova's cover for W Magazine. The scarf, the hand ++.

Though I have to be honest, this feels like home. This feels like the Vogue Italia I grew up with. So I'm down with it. (Commence the Meisel naysayers dismissive comments).

But whoever is the art director now, seriously needs to tone it down with the color scheme and text placement. Too much shocking colors, and the photographer's name need not be that huge. And "Steven" was condensed, and "Meisel" was expanded? Really queen? High school powerpoint presentation much?

I seriously dislike it when they started placing the photographer's name on the cover. And somehow the text size got bigger and bigger. It makes it feel like it's all about the photographer rather than the model and selling the clothes. It's just weird. It feels like a BOOK/ARCHIVE of photographers

When I saw the title this is exactly what I was expecting to see. I love it though, as I miss MEISEL and his girls (New or old) on every issue. This is very 1960s Vogue Italia too!!

Sorry, looks more like an Elle Italy cover to me. They love this sort of commercial vintage thing. Also, the red and pink don't match. I'm very excited for Grace Elizabeth though, what a journey!

They're clearly super elated to have him on board!

Hahah I know right!! Damn, they are really, really happy to have him back shooting when they can get him, and trust me, they can't get him for every cover anymore.

^So Meisel not being on every issue is Meisel's choice and not VI's? Interesting!

Stunning! I'm so happy that it's Meisel. No one does old school glamour this good. The kind of beauty we rarely see in fashion these days

I heard that now it's his choice, that he could shoot far more covers for them, but choses not to. It seems the new EIC wanted to get him back on a more regular basis, and Meisel was not interested.

Maybe because its no longer the same without Franca? But he will probably keep doing few covers a year, hopefully.

Or maybe it's related to Enninful now at British Vogue... he made a few posts on instagram about Meisel shooting for British Vogue...

From that preview pic this is giving me Niki Taylor vibes (which ... YAASS!).

Looks great, can't wait to see in HQ.

I thought he will only do the March and September covers, so glad to see him again.

The cover looks great, but I'm not sure about the layout.

Lucky girl! I never expected him to even look at her twice, she is so boring and basic like a shop window mannequin

Fantastic to see Meisel again, but I expected a little more glamour. It's beautiful nevertheless.

Still don't get the success of Grace Elizabeth though.

This really got me by surprise! Never thought Grace would get a cover for VI, especially OG by Meisel. That is huge!
I'm happy for her, cuz she's absolutely stunning, such a great model and has that ''old supermodel'' look.
Can't wait to see the ed.
