It’s a screencap of some random ecommerce site…

Say what you will about Franca’s rule-- trolling covers and all-dog issue, but her Vogue was one of the last and few Vogues that still remembered it’s a high fashion and model dream-making machine and not a press book for boring celebrities hustling their latest movie— let alone trickling down to mimic generic ecommerce wholesale like this cover LOL

And the toddler on the cover…

LOLZ is all I can summon.

This cover is vaguely interesting, although it lacks the social commentary that anchored a lot of VI's past cover concepts. It's not timely or tongue in cheek, but it's not cringe worthy either. i give it a pass.

From the looks of it this is a story where you have to see the full spread to fully appreciate it. The online shopping concept seems fun, this looks exactly like the kind of picture they use on Yoox / Net-A-Porter / Shopbop / Amazon Fashion, etc. and honestly that is how most people are experiencing clothes these days. With every magazine and social media platform rapidly becoming shoppable the time is right for someone to do send up.

This could be fun, I'll wait till I see the full story. I like Lulu, she's cute. It would be interesting if this involves some augmented reality thing.

Yes Meisel is no irreplaceable god in fashion, but considering the crap Non-Meisel issues this magazine has been producing, then might as well give me the worst and most uninspired issue Meisel could produce and I'm sold. It's not him that's the issue. The point is, how come VI is so put together with him while so lost when they're using someone else. Remember the laugh issue? The Jaden Smith issue? the China issue? The dog issue? Utter crap
yes, some of what you quoted was utter crap but let's face it, this is the crappiest cover VI has ever produced...
and if only name Meisel is enough for buying-in then I guess it's like buying designers clothes for their labels only rather than because of liking them...

I loved Meisel's TV-shopping story he did back in January 2012 but this does look a little flat upon first look. On the fence about this one (until I see more)!

This is so bad. One of the weakest VI delivered ever. The model is forgettable and looks like a little girl. Incredibly dull. Maybe with a better model it would spice it up. Execution is also weak.

I don't have an issue with the concept itself (yes, it's something that Meisel has done in a similar way before, the whole mass consumption of fashion etc etc).

It's the cover execution that I find shocking - it's just so literal in a bad way.

I'm more annoyed with the graphic designer than Meisel - the pictures are meant to look dull.

It's funny the fact that Meisel now shoots for Zara, when reality and fiction collide.

What is this? I was so excited when I read ''Lulu by Meisel'' thinking it would be something iconic, and then I see this? What a joke. One of the worst/weakest VI covers I have ever seen.

I love lulu, she's a lot better than that. I hope the main editorial delivers.
