crap really. Her face really annoys me and the ripple effect looks so cheap.

Man I want to like this......I really do. I like the layout and the effects and it's definitely different and quite striking. But, and it's a big but, although I have cut Meghan some slack lately, as it's become clear to me that when she's used in the right environment she does well......unfortunately this isn't one of them and her face becomes once again, quite unsettling.
This would be a remarkable cover with at least about 20 current modelling faces I can think of, replacing Meghan's. Oh well.

I don't think this is so bad, but now that I'm looking at it on a larger size I'm seeing some details I don't actually like. The glowing instagram effect looks a bit cheap, it could have been adjusted better cause it seems like the hat or whatever she is wearing evokes a winter-y feeling. I'm losing my hopes on this editorial, it seems like it could be quite nice.

My prob lies with Meisel. It would be nice if he uses more current Supermodels of the moment as oppose to all his muses. Joan back in March and Daria in January are good examples of what I mean.

What must Meisel and/or Franka do to lose their jobs? Alt gets called out on far better material at VP.
It's like the tilt shift effect on instagram.

Well it's weird in a Vogue Italia way... but yuk, this cover is disgustingly weird. Not beautifully weird. Bad cover and choice, I hope the editorials inside will be more exciting than this, sorry.

I'm assuming they would need to die.

i think it looks good to me only because Meghan was used in this kind of theme, i think she pulls it off well.

To me the cover is simply striking and makes me look forward to the ed. I'm not particularly interested in Meghan but I found I've liked most of the things she has ever done so far.
Hope the eds turn out great as well as the main one.

Meghan used to be so intriguing. She looks so weird now.

In theory I like this cover but really, it gives me a bit of a headache when I look at it. The ripple effect could have been done in a way that wasn't so harsh. That said, the concept is neat, just wish it was a bit more pleasing on the eyes.

I was intrigued in a very positive way when I read the title of the thread, I'm always fond of connections between models and photographers like the one between Meghan and Meisel, but I must say I'm not happy with the results (though I know Vogue Italia doesn't exist just to please my picky, itchy eyes). The disappointment was even bigger as I think Meghan has positively evolved in the palette of feelings and expressions she displays in her work (much more sophisticated today than used to be when she started and seemed always bored and exhausted). Maybe they put too much energy into a concept they didn't push as far as it should have been and forgot how simplicity and spontaneity can be ravishing and efficient.
