One of French Vogue's best recent covers (and no doubt one of Inez and Vinoodh's best covers as well, they rarely impress). Gisele looks fantastic, naturally sexy, I love the simplicity and cheekiness of the pose.

I'm not negative at all when refering to Alt's direction on VP, but what is it that made tFSers like so much this cover? The sand on her butt? That's the only difference I can see from already done beach themed covers... If you get Gisele and the sea, then explore more angles and ideas for the cover. Hope the contents are good, maybe the photoshoot is more creative after all. Posted via Mobile Device
This is Alt at her best - pushing the limits of edginess, and definitely not for those who see the body as something vulgar.
Sorry, but how is this cover "pushing the limits of edginess"? I can't find a single edgy thing about the cover, or Emmanuelle's overall direction. She can obviously hold her own, but she's definitely not breaking ground here...
I think Gisele looks athletic and striking. There's a sexiness there, but it's not vulgar. Love the attitude in her face. And I love how the sand is sticking to her ***. I feel its what makes the shot.
And I like how her hair is dark, like vintage Gisele from the late 90's!
Can't wait to pick up my issue!

i actually see why so many of you guys feel it's an Elle cover, but what makes it VOGUE for me is that it is Gisele showing her butt, not some unknown pretty model. gisele is a superstar, everybody knows her, not just people in fashion.
