Exactly what I said! All the time and just too much!

And i doubt this does have multiple covers, it doesn't seem any of those rumors come true haha.

In the end there might be two blondes and two brunettes inside who were supposed to get the cover too, but things change all the time I have heard several things especially about Italian Vogue, last year was insane.

And Ash could be considered as unexpected brunette, right?

But I agree it feels like Meisel is shooting at least one editorial too much each year that never gets published, we don't know.

Oh well... I must have missed those two

But anyways I was really hoping Isabeli would be on the cover this month.

This cover feels so 90's... I do actually like it. however, the idea wasn't well executed.

Hope there's one more cover for this month & with Anna, Sasha & Kasia or whatever, better than that one, please!
The supplement cover looks very nice actually, she's working it.

I think the photoshopped look is clearly intentional (and perhaps a commentary on the use of photoshop more generally) and i'm surprised to read so many comments pointing it out, as if people were revealing something that wasn't obvious. but, obviously, that's just my point of view.

which isn't to say i like the cover. although it's interesting to see how VI has responded to the recession -- this is strangely more compelling than all the tributes to shopping scattered across other september issues.

No offence to anyone but i just can't understand how people don't like this.. it's perfect in every way..it totally captures the zeitgeist, the casting, styling is perfect!! the dirt, the ruffianishness, to me its like a post apocalyptic vision, where consumer society has been replaced by something harder and more real, where people make do with what is around them to keep warm,but still create outfits that look beautiful with their creativity!... the staff Ash is carrying is like a traveller, a refugee, so global, so now, I can't wait to get it! can someone explain why they don't like it!!!!

It's pretty simple why people don't like this cover. I'd be horrified if everyone had the same opinion about one thing. Different people appreciate different aesthetics, and this cover is just visually unappealing to me. The theme has already been done, so I don't get what's so great about it.

No, i completely agree, i am shocked at the comments in the style of "How could they let this happen".etc implying this was a mistake. As if someone like Meisel & Sozzani would approve a cover shot if it wasn't in their intention to look like that, so yeah i think its obviously done on purpose.And i think its brilliant, but i understand why so many hate it as well.

I love the humor, and I love the fact that it's so different from last month's cover (which was pure beauty).

Rihanna's cover is quite nice...that girl has such a beautiful face.

I also think it ties in quite well with the feeling of Pradas last collection, where Miuccia did roman warriors and strong wool pants and waders, almost as if preparing for war or adversity, the practicalness of wearing rubber boots as if to really get down to work, it sort of is a good example of how fashion designers photogs magazines are like good artists processing our fears for the future and reflecting and exploring the socioploitical landscape
