Iris' ed is simply amazing...seriously, her cheekbones are out of this world

And I did not realise that January's Alana was Alana Kuznetsova! I just assumed it was Zimmer...what a superb surprise

Now let's get this straight though...what is up with Liu Wen and her Solar Month? Did I miss something and do we now have 13 months?

ridiculous. i know. i don't get it at all !
solar and lunar are for the horoscopes, aren't they ? i saw it in Elle horoscope ... i never understood what it was ....
but there it's not solar month ... it's just jan. 2010 .... maybe it would be a solar month ?!

oh realized the saint names are replaced with Fashion names (Alber, Giorgio, Gisele blablabla ...)
that is ridiculous .... seriously ? are we having a high school joke here ?! casting director made a mistake and took 13 for a 12 month calendar ?! not wanting to be mean .... but nobody had their complete brain on this calendar making ?!

I loved the Calendar! All models are great in it and I love Terry Richardson's work.

you can smack suvi as much as you want for her walk, but once again she proves she can do no wrong when it comes to editorials!

The calendar is cool but some of the girls are not sexy enough.

Like Ali? I feel uncomfortable with her presence in this calendar.

I expected something more raw and provocative of the calendar. Anna J is the only one whos turns me on out of all those shots!

I like the cover though. Very strong and simple and so loaded with subtext. I love the way shes obscured by her own pose.

I'll buy this. I buy the guest edited issues of Vogue Paris each year. They're the most interesting and directional.

The calendar looks very similar to a 'pin-ups' one I had, illustrations from yesteryear, paintings of women in see-through underwear - and the Richardson calendar copies it right down to identical poses and props. I like that he's made it real.

The idea that Stephanie looks too tired to show her face on the cover defeats the purpose of selecting her as a cover girl. If you can't show her face, then she's "not fit for purpose". Though now that I have been given the forewarning that she looks tired, when I see the editorial, she will probably not look as bad as I imagine.

But a cover without eye-contact loses a lot of its appeal - it's harder for the cover shot to form a connection with the viewer. We could intellectualise it, but at the same time, the cover is supposed to act as an instant advert for why to buy the issue, and having to appreciate the cover intellectually shows that it hasn't achieved its main aim.

It's not an awful cover and it's different to what we've seen so far this year, but it doesn't fire me up and I don't think I'd treasure it for two days, never mind two months. It's not Lara's cover, it's not Anna's cover, it's not even a Kate Moss cover. Those covers connected with me (even if the latter served to irritate me more than anything, thanks to her ubiquity).
