Well it's hardly gonna go down as one of their iconic covers, but the avant garde element certainly excites, even if the font doesn't.
If this is the kind of tone your after, there really isn't another model who can so easily convey this gothic and slightly sinister feel. Maybe that dress is paining her.
Pairing Meisel and Stella will never be anything short of interesting and I hope the contents are appealing.

I am so happy the cover looks like it was shot outdoors! I am so tired of studio shots on the cover; it's nice to see something new. It's really nice to see Stella on the cover and the cover itself and really cool. Lets hope the content is good.
I literally freaked out when I saw the thread title and after seeing the cover image, the only thing that I said was "WOW.". Now we're talking about Meisel and his genius mind. This is such a fantastic cover! I knew that after seeing Stella's name on the thread title as the cover girl, it's gonna be amazing. And it is! Though the waist portion is kind of bothering me as well but I think Stella nailed it. As for the typeface that is used for Avant-Garde text, I agree with some of you. Some other font should have been used instead of that Arial/Helvetica like font. And aside from Edward Scissorhands, I do also get a Garden Of Delights vibe from US Vogue December 2006 shot also by Meisel.
I am just so thrilled to see Stella on the cover again after 7 years (Her last was March 2003). And finally, it's not a studio shoot! Thank God for that. Now I can't wait to see the main editorial.
