I agree. Why take a brunette with a wig when the original redhead is better?

Well Vogue Italia has an established image throughout generations. The advertisers are very well aware of the situation they're getting themselves into, especially by choosing a publication that is known for the cutting edge and as Steven Meisel points it out; "breaking boundaries" images.... and no we are not talking about USA Vogue, nor is there a need to do so because they're directed towards completely different crowds. Look at fashion weeks!
Am I the only freak who patronizes both US and Italian Vogue? My previous comment applied to the September issue and not the overall magazine and is predicated on the assumption that the September issue of Vogue Italia has the same significance as it does for US magazines and that is that it is the biggest selling issue and gets the most ads and therefore has to fulfill the expectation that it will be a big seller (kind of a vicious circle). Yes the regular advertisers are "aware of the situation they're getting themselves into" and so are the irregular advertisers and while I think that VI's prestige matters significantly and that VI's relatively small readership may have as much value as the readership of editions with larger circulations, I would not be surprised if, especially in this economy, a design house would take their business elsewhere, e.g., the Italian editions of Elle or Marie Claire or Vogue editions in other geographies if VI did not sell at a certain level. So every month does not have to be a "breaking boundaries" month, and September sales may be what helps fund the "breaking boundaries" months. Of course it's great when you can do both at the same time but if given the choice between art and commerce, September is about commerce. Note that I certainly do not mean that VI should forsake serious fashion for crass commercialism - and I don't think that happened here - well actually the dog may have tipped the scales that way and then there's the 3-D, anyhoo I don't think VI loses fashion cred for putting a beautiful woman with a beautiful smile wearing a Prada coat on its cover.

Having said all that I really liked the cover (although kinda iffy on the dog), but I am less enthused about the editorial. The ed is not a bad ed at all, there are no horribly bad pictures but it would have been a more powerful and satisfying ed if it were just 12 or so pictures - akin to a movie that is good overall but is twenty minutes too long. This has nothing to do with Miranda, I cannot think of another model who could pull off 20 or so pages in front of a gray screen. If 20+ pages of Miranda Kerr were the requirement, the armchair quarterback in me would have done two separate eds - a studio shoot, because some of the studio shots are stellar and then Meisel, Miranda and that damn dog should have gone to the beach or something. Aren't they both based in LA(?)... there's the beach, and if they did not want LA garishness, they could have gone up the road to Santa Barbara or Carmel, there's whatever that big park is in LA, there's the observatory, there's also lots and lots of homes that rent themselves out for shoots and movies, or they could have done a theme based shoot on a set. I am not one of those people who poo poos studio shoots on spec, but to me a little more ambition and creativity would have turned something good into something great.

MCB's ed is disgusting. The red hair just looks awful.

The supplement cover could have been even better but the font makes it look like a Fan made.

Is this a second cover or a wrap?
