Very safe, very 90's, very boring.

This is Emanuelle's best cover but why Laetitia? I wish someone more relevant had snagged this one.

Actually, I kind of like this. It's simple and pretty. I don't have high expectations for Vogue Paris anymore, clearly.

I love the scheme of blue and white...it's simple and fresh. And I don't mind Laetitia on covers one bit as long as she looks this gorgeous.

Pretty, but boring cover. Nonetheless, it will sell well.

What a boring model choice. I mean she looks great but I would have prefered a model from this period, or at least someone fresh.

Laetita's Vogue Paris cover under Carine...the Dec/Jan one is so reflective of the 2 different styles these EIC have. I must say this isn't bad but just very, very safe and bland. Nothing really excites and maybe VP is losing their lustre...did like the October cover with Sasha though! I've always come to expect you know ethereal, quintessentially French flair with VP covers but that could be me still recovering from the saturation of SEX Carine presented. VP just needs a little more flavour as the past 3 covers have all been studio shoots.

^ Honestly though, this cover may be bland but it's worlds better than her last cover with Carine. That cover might have been the worst cover under her editorship.

I love this, Laetitia looks accessible yet flirtatious, I love the simplicity and they always get the amount of text and the placement just right, I really cannot fault this at all...

This is just an OK cover which is fine because Vogue Paris under Alt always borders mediocre/bland and just OK. The saddest part is that Alt's best work for VP is just OK.

It's pretty and the image would be great for a Gap ad or something of the like, but for a Vogue Paris cover a pretty image of a random model/actress is just not enough. It's too boring and forgettable. And to put her on the cover when the theme is "actrices françaises sublimées" almost seems a bit like a joke when there are so many French actresses who are indeed sublime and would probably have made a more interesting cover subject.
