No doubt the masthead is foiled and makes the cover more admirable on the stands. It's a serviceable cover shot from Mert & Marcus, I've no complaints. However I would have said this was the work of David Sims. I cannot wait for the contents to surface now.

I was so excited when I saw that she got the cover but I must say I'm a bit disappointed in the result... It mostly comes from the styling... A denim shirt for a Christmas issue... Right after what we got last month... Looking forward to seeing the editorial though.

I wish it had happened under Carine's tenure...

This comes just when I thought things couldn't get worse. Her first Vogue Paris cover... I wish it had never happened.

Its a really beautiful image and very appropriated for the month(s).
I like the almost vintage Jane Birkin inspiration. I am pretty sad with the denim (mainly because it was so used last month).
But its really good and its just a very clever model choice.

good model choice, but...the whole thing was just too casual

It's like all of the magazines missed the memo about it being Christmas in December or something. We've had a seriously un-festive bunch of covers this month from almost all of the magazines.

Sadly, a gold logo doesn't make it festive.

It's a beautiful cover indeed. Although the retouching on Carla's face is too obvious. So the Dec/Jan issue of VP aren't guest edited anymore, 'no?

This issue is actually guest-edited by Carla.


So, aside from Doutzen, Daria and Natalia, every cover star this year has 'celebrity' status.

The cover reminds me of the one with Charlotte: foiled masthead, white headlines, denim styling, messed up hair by the wind... But this is even worse: she looks terribly photoshopped and her hair looks awful.

This is painfully boring. It would still make for a dull cover any other month, but it's especially lackluster given the holiday season.
Most of this is due to the styling; Emmanuelle might as well have put herself on the cover.

A denim shirt? Are you kidding us, Ms Alt?...

And actually, Doutzen and Natalia have some kind of celeb status too...
I don't like this eventhough she looks stunning. Lets hope the content will make up for the pretty lackluster cover. And a denim shirt doesn't fit her status at all.

This is incredibly insipid, the styling is just a joke at this point! There is nothing exciting, or fun about this cover, especially for the double Dec/Jan cover issue that needs to really grab my attention! Carla does look stunning, but in a doll esque kind of way, it doesn't engage! However the content mind be fun, although i always found her a better model, than actress, singer, and not interested in her marriage, First Lady status.
