What a weird comment. Of course it's the cover. And it's FAR from poorly done.

Maybe she was refering to the flowers.

I mean those flowers really makes the whole cover looks kinda mmmm I don't even know how it looks like actualy...
it's not usual of VI so maybe thats why she thought that wasn't the cover !


anyway, last month with Eliza, the cover had a very morrocan vibe as well because of the turban and this month as well.
Meisel must be in an arabic phase.

this is also what I don't like about this cover it reminds me somehow of last month cover.

and the flowers, THE FLOWERS

Same here. I like it,but that's about it at the moment. Maybe it'll improve on a second looking.

I agree on the cheapness, some shots look a wee bit similar to what Paul
Rowland did a while back ago with his Supreme girls for the show package as
well, again I feel Meisel could do better

I agree that he is probably not inspired by the Jan Wiegers painting as I said before.
But Sasha's pose in the last pic is just screaming 'odalisk' to me. But eacht to their own of course

Of course he combined his impression of Morocco with his own aesthetics but the poses are very reminiscent of it.

good eye Mikel
Ok I agree the last is quite obvious Meisel is inspired by the Ingres painting, not the Jan Wiegers painting, but anyway good eye again, mikel

Yup exactly testinofan, they are both studio shots as well which I feel
can cheapen the Moroccan luxury feel for some shots, outdoor shots would be great

I like the cover, great styling and colors, I think the flowers might look good in reality...
The main ed is fantastic! The theme, the setting, the styling, everything looks amazing!

The cover picture itself is beautiful but that "something" that was photoshopped ruins it for me sorry. Nice colours, great Sasha but the cover is a no. Also the font is ugly.

The editorial is good but it reminds me of Vogue Italia March 2007. Actually it's pretty much the same to me and I don't like it when Meisel does that with Sasha only because everyone knows she would look good in any picture with any theme he chooses her to spice up the not so original shoots. That's just my opinion.

Thank god the styling is so extraordinary.
