I get all the problems people have with the cover, but generally I really like it.

I do hope they add some "new" models (ie models that haven't been featured in every issue since April) to the September issue, rather than have it just be more eds with the usual suspects.

There is absolutely no doubt that there are other good models out there, but i could understand the criticism if they were using models that could not deliver. And VP does use occasionally most models mentioned. Opinions about who should or shouldn't be featured are always going to be biased, but we do not live in a cultural vacuum, regardless of someone's personal taste, and some of them would not be my personal choice, those women are at the top of their game.

^But nobody's saying VP (or other editions) should completely abandon 'their' girls, just have more variety and have a bigger pool from which to pick. And saying VP uses certain models because they're at the top of the game is kind of a circular argument. The reason those models are at the top of the game is partly because they're featured regularly in the VP (or VI, VUSA, etc).

While I would love to see the cover models varied up as much as everyone else, I can't deny that I absolutely LOVE this cover. Lara looks unbelievable.

And my god, Jourdan's preview looks insane!

they are featured regularly bc they delivered most of the time....simple as that. i dont mind vogue paris using their regular girls but i also think that they would give new girls a chance.

I love the cover! I think Lara is a fine choice, but I agree with most of you, it's tiring to see the same faces all the time on VP.

I think Emmanuelle is going safe in those early issues. Maybe she takes risks later...

Will they ever use different models? It's so boring and tiring, especially that we've seen an editorial like that from VP million times. Nothing new, same old sh*t.

I see the use of some of his themes - a Germanic-looking blonde in stockings and stilettos, against a Monte Carlo-style background, with its sand and palm trees.

Perhaps the most recent image that people might recall of that type of look in his work is Nadja in the AW 1994 Blumarine campaign, here reused for the cover of American Photo Jan-Feb 2000 (colossuscollectibles.com):
