There is something very late 70's/early 80's Glamour Calendar about this shot and that's not a bad thing. Liking how they have gone away from the close up shots and Lara is perfect here.
Hope the contents are something special too.

I love the cover, it somehow has a Hitchcock vibe, sexy, sultry, strong! And the departure reference is just brilliant!
What bothers me slightly tho, is the fact that some people here complain about the repetitive use of the established girls, yet when Meisels shooting new faces for VI I read comments such as 'no expression', 'lifeless' etc for pages and pages.
I guess you can't have both, personally Ive hardly seen a new faces image/editorial with Darias depth, Laras sensuality or Sashas libertine.
It comes (and has to come!) with time and I actually find it to be very enriching that these two magazines provide the stage for both concepts.
