Agree. I feel it belongs to photoshop disasters.

I just don't understand the concept of the cover. Where is the art direction? Even Vanity Fair, when it does it Hollywood Issue, has some kind of artful direction in terms of composition and placing of the figures, etc.

The cover would have been much stronger and more dynamic if it were just that diagonal line of Kate Winslet, Julianne Moore and Meryl Streep. The other three just look strange to me.

Besides, if anything is to be learnt by this issue, its that Penelope Cruz should never be given the position of creative director ever again!

the cover is too vanity fair...
and the edits don't sound too exciting.

It HAS TO be a joke! Vogue Paris (to wish I'm a suscriber ... I tried a year ... it will be the last one!) is always boring me CRAZY with covers and some editorials ! V, Italian and American Vogue and US (sometimes UK) Harper's Bazaar do soooooo much better ! This time it's photoshop gone bad ! All 3 covers are drecktitude lol (cf: André on ANTM) I mean :

- the first one is crazy bad styling and looks like a behind-the-scenes photo and no link whatsoever = like a school project !

- the 2cd cover looks like a sunglasses advertisement, not a HIGH FASHION cover !

- the 3rd cover with Penelope and Meryl is like an editorial gone bad where Penelope is working it but not Meryl who is laughing and the pose is not selling anything, nor even the clothes!

0/20 (like we put school marks in France) = or I should say 0/3 covers! BAD BAD BAD JOB

let's pray the editorials will be "good" ...

I love the cover with Bono, but I feel Meryl ruins the other two.

Unlike Scarlett, Penelope is actually playing a role as an editor in this issue, she's not just being feature. It was her decision to feature these other celebs on the cover with her. That's what I was referring to in my statement.

Good cover, nice than Testino back on VP.

I'm so tired for Penelope Cruz, she is not beautiful & sexy and now she is the guest editor, come on.

I thinking was Nicole Kidman appeared on the cover.

The other girls looking great, except Cruz.

I love those actresses, but the concept of the cover is a little weird

don't like how they omitted the G in the main cover. the rest of the actresses
look alright but Kate does look like Lindsay Lohan and Sienna Miller combined
and Julianne appears to be sucking the hell out of her face in that shot. and the
use of the Red tshirts are just downright gimmicky. however, i understand that
what they're aiming for here is toned down glamour, and the simplicity of the
shot works for me, i mean these are all A-List celebrities, no need to envelope
them in the usual glammed up garb that US Vogue always aims for. but i'm
pretty sure that if they went for that aesthetic people'd still say it's boring

I would be much more interested if Meryl or Julianne had guest edited, and I am bothered by the shirts. Is there not enough publicity for them elsewhere?

Does everything have to have a concept?

They all look f*cking amazing period, and we can never have enough exposure for such an important cause.

wow, i'm on the fence and i think i will be on the fence on this. i neither love it or hate it; the bono cover is the best cover but it looks more like an i-D cover than VP. Penelope looks great on all three covers. where is the G in the group cover so you get 2 vogue covers and a voue cover?
