I think so too. VI covers honestly don't speak to me too often but this image has life in it; it's not so smooth and staged-looking.

STELLA!!! You gotta love her... at age 40 and still looking fabulous (and with a nose piercing nonetheless). And I love that VI takes risks with its covers, especially with important issues like the September issue, other magazines would do well to take note (*cough* US Vogue *cough*).

^ But the thing is Vouge US can't take risks like Vogue Italia and I don't think that they should. They've never been a particularly risky magazine and that's fine.

I would not necessarily agree with this... let's not forget Helmut Newton's work for the US Vogue... Nadja Auermann making love with a swan... Helena/Cindy editorial - Helena standing on the hair of screaming Cindy and many more...
These editorials would have been contraversial even today...
I just think they've changed their direction dramatically and became so utterly boring...

by the way, I do find VI utterly boring too... they've been playing 'too safe' for very long... but not as long as VP... anyway, even if I consolidate all my appreciation for Stella... this cover still make me cringe a bit... I do think VI needs a new main photograppher because Steven has just been recycling himself for too long now... they need some injections of novelty... and freshness...

I think we're talking about the covers here, not necessarily on how a certain editorial should look like, etc.

Doesn't look like Frida. And are those Crystal Renn and Lydia Hearst on the 2nd photo?!

I think it's Frida not only because it looks like her but because there were photos of her,Jac and Kristina on a couture shoot by Paolo Roversi

Yeah that's what I meant. The cover and contents are totally different.
