<GASP> Another older woman of Italian heritage on the cover of Italian Vogue. Lovely and brilliant in its unexpectedness...

Karl Templer has nothing to do with this....right? I want to say 100% not Karl, but if I'm wrong I'll be kicking myself.

^ He styled it ...I was very taken aback. Mind you I don't think that you can fault the styling here, it looks alright and I'm sure that the story will be strong on the clothes front. It's Meisel's insipidness that makes this cover so boring. Although the inside editorial seems intriguing enough, based off of the cast list.

There are top photographers from the 90s/early 2000s who don't work that much anymore nowadays and could probably produce amazing imagery, yet Meisel is consistently given the chance to produce mediocrity by Franca and Anna. Yes, he's a legend but I wonder if we will be using the past tense to describe his former genius from now on?

Awww, what a beautiful, timeless face: it's nice to see Isabella on the cover.

I don't mind Isabella on the cover, but it looks so dated. When I first saw a picture of it on ontd, I thought it was a cover from the 80s. The colors are very unappealing with all those pink/orange hues.

The casting for this issue is so out of left-field, I love it.

This issue seems reassuring, weird cover aside though.

I'm totally in love with this cover. Isabella looks stunning and I think the cover is a classic. Can't wait for the main editorial. Such a great model cast can do no wrong.

Now the cover looks dated and old with the theme and the model. It's too much.

I mean the fact that she is kinda old (but still beautiful) and properly also was famous in the 90s - doing the vintage 90s theme is a very idea, using a young model/actress would be nicer. Understandable. I thought this was a 1992s cover to be honest

Without Edward, Vogue Italia is kinda boring.
