This would be a remarkable cover with at least about 20 current modelling faces I can think of, replacing Meghan's. Oh well.
I concur. Im actually stupefied many people like this so much. Besides the "innovative concept" the actual model makes me uncomfortable. I get it she makes great fashion angles but, and Im bordering on no go territory here, for all I know this girl is the epitome of health, I really dont think this sends the right message.

I think this is one of the worst magazine covers I've ever seen, even more unflattering to its model (who I usually love) than Raquel's August cover last year.

There's a tightness in Meghan's face that makes it appear as though she's trying to not sneeze. The ripple effect looks last-minute, the text (particularly the caption) blends in with the image too much, and the blurriness of some of the image actually hurts my eyes.

I've absolutely loved the last three covers from VI, and this is such a mind-boggling drop in quality for me.

maybe because of the effect the lower half of the cover gives me... well It`s just my opinion
How I wish this resembled the February 2006 cover.

Interesting to see Weber back in VI. Thanks for the review mistress_f . Looking forward to Meisel, Walker's and Munro's eds. Seems to be more here than in September, in some ways.

I'm fairly sure it's her, but there's no frontal of her face and she always has her eyes closed so i'm not 100% certain, her nose is one of a kind

The reviews sounds pretty good; Rocha, Weber, Roversi, McMenamy, etc! Thanks, mistress_f!

Kristen McMenamy by Tim Walker has got to be one of my favourite model/photographer duos ever. Looking forward to this editorial. And I'm pretty sure I'll be buying this issue. Stella Tennant, Paolo Roversi, Bruce Weber.. The content is amazing!

Sounds like an incredibly boring issue... again. Vogue Italia, you are outdated.

Only looking forward to the Walker editorial.
