Definitely a hit and miss affair this month. A so-so cover followed by a very strong editorial with Gisele. Then David Sims doing his grimy look editorial once again, but this time with astonishing effect and Isabeli's best edit. in a long time. Always a fab of Malgosia, but it's all a bit 'so-what', Sasha looking lovely and Snejana's beautiful face working wonderfully in a less than exciting scenario. Really looking forward to seeing Anja's pics and all in all looks like a decent edition.
Thanks for all the scans

If a magazine isn't the least exciting, why would I be spending any money on it? I want to get my moneys worth. Likewise, I wouldn't be purchasing any clothing if they aren't particularly exciting. Simple can be exciting. Simple can be boring. This issue is boring. Just my opinion.

I think exciting is being used in 2 different ways here. There's exciting as in groundbreaking. There's also exciting as in, it excites you. Opinions will differ on this. I personally find this to be quite exciting because although the themes are simple, they are expressed well and artistically satisfying.

I'm feeling a slight Numero vibe, but that might be just me.

Wanted is stunning. That is truly the type of editorial that David Sims should be shooting all the time, instead of his ultra-repetitive studio shoots for US Vogue.

I'm loving everything but Wanted!, David Sims needs to change the record.

The eds posted are good so far. Such a good start.
Good to see Snejana in VP again.
Thanks for awesome scans, Diorette!

i think alt is playing it a little safe this month, solid models, nothing too brash or outrageous, but she is hip enough to keep it interesting. i personally love this issue. glad to see no nips. hahahaha

I think I'll have wait till the August issue to be able to properly judge Alt as and editor. Though I do like how shes going to make some changes like more pages of reading, not that I can read French but I do think that it'll give the magazine a bit more substance.

Anyways, I'm not a fan of the cover, quite forgettable even though its Gisele, and the eds for me are either a hit or a miss. For me the hits were Snejana and Malgosia. For me these had the models and the clothes or jewellery sharing the spotlight.

I think a lot of the people here aren't a fan of pretty simple, but equally stunning editorials, and are just looking for something quite controversial or out of the norm, but i like the issue.

Sasha's editorial is probably my favourite.

Green Girls with Sasha and the beauty editorial with Snejana are the highlights of this issue in my own opinion. Sasha's green tongue picture was just artistically done and Snejana's shots are just too hard to miss.
