This probably the most horrible Vogue Italia in history

Isabella Rossellini really does look like she is lit from within, but I wish that Vogue Italia would have engaged in a little hypocrisy and a lot of superficiality and supplemented Isabella's radiance and the "Feeling Good" tagline with a better set up and styling. I am not saying that she should be trussed up in Givenchy, but perhaps a beautiful drape-y top and / or a lovely necklace and perhaps seeing the edge of a nicely upholstered settee peeping through. This cover is a let down, but like someone else stated, Isabella is not the problem. I hope the ed is good.

there is something really weird about her proportions in this shot. isabella rossellini is a fashion icon, yet steven has made her look so milquetoast. granted, this isn't the 80s or 90s anymore, so he can't make her look as stunning as she did then, but i'm sure they had more cover options to choose from than this.

this isn't vogue italia, this is ladies home journal. this is redbook. this is O the oprah magazine.

Did anyone set the time machine to the early 90s? If you gonna go to the past, at least do it right.

I really don't get the fuss here.
Yes it doesn't look like what Steven Meisel has accustomed us to or what's IN at the moment. It does look like an early 90s cover but this is the base of Meisel's collaboration with VI and with one of his earliest muse. It's the way he's always captured Isabella Rossellini, in a very beautiful but natural and honest way. And after all these years it still works like a charm for me. Of course I'd love him to wow me with some over the top concept, but I like this approach. He seems to be strugguling lately to find some solid inspirations, so going back to basics is probably the best way to come back stronger.

I do think she looks happy and while that may not be the ultimate beauty experience it's something else, something good.

There is beauty in truth.

I searched the whole thread for the real cover, before commenting, because I couldn't accept that thing was done by what are supposed to be considered industry leaders. This is the most lackluster cover I have ever seen.

The simplicity of the cover is okay, but the image is so so wrong.

It's funny because Vogue Italia covers usually blow me away, but no cover this year has done anything for me

Love, love, love Isabella, but although it's decent, it's really not Vogue Italia cover worthy........I really think they could have done so much more with her.
Still one of the most beautiful women around and they use a shot that could easily have graced Ladies Home Journal circa 1998.
That aside the casting for the main editorial leaves me salivating. Such an eclectic cast.

I think its a beautiful cover. Its something different and unlike some of Meisel's other stuff...This feels Real to me. Her smile makes me smile. She's a very beautiful woman.

I actually like it. It's very simple and clean. It's not the most glamorous shot, but she just looks so happy and comfortable on the cover that I can't help but like it.
