I'm surprised most people on here hate the cover. I really like it.

I will stop buying VP from this month on. Alt is doing very bad. I miss the controversial, daring issues of VP under Carine.

I can't either, it's just too terrible. actually I haven't bought one single issue since Alt took over (and I used to be a subscriber before).....

I think, this could be because they wanted to include a variety of musicians instead of one. I'm sure next year it will be back to the usual one person who will be guest editor of the magazine.

i can't believe i'm actually one of the few who actually like this. Kate looks REALLY weird but it's very striking, great use of colors too. Actually, I think I like most of the Vogue December issues thus far.. waiting for the VP calendar too!

We can only hope... It seems that all she's planning to do is "specials". Beauty special last month, music special this month...

I do get a feeling that she is still struggling to get her point across as the eic, when one is desperate to make a stamp of its own on something this iconic, it can come out looking messy & rushed. I'm still to love an entire issue of hers, not just the cover shot.

OMG What the hell is this??? The colors make it gimmicky, the face has been photoshopped to death, the styling is horrendous à la 70's wrong turn and the pose does not work with that huge arm! WRONG!!

Just plain awful. I'm not a big fan of Kate.

I think that the cover is all kinds of awesome, kudos to VP and Kate for committing to transforming Kate into Bowie, and doing Mullet Bowie at that!

ETA:
Re the comparisons to the May 2003 British Vogue cover, that is a striking and memorable cover, but it is Kate with her hair slicked back with a lightening bolt thingee super-imposed over her face. IMO if that cover came out today it would get resoundingly thrashed on all the photoshop disaster forums.
