For me, the high point of this issue is in the cover credits, which state that Sasha's embroidered silk dress costs £42,900. But the rest of the content is rather flat. The ingredients are there - ideas, models, clothes, photographers - but nothing really comes alive.

I'm wondering if it's the sequence the editorials come in; if we had the Milan (Sasha) or Paris (Lily D) one as an opener, would it make more of an impression, rather than that New York one - which is the weakest, in my eyes. The weakness of the New York editorial followed by Karlie's fairly simple studio one perhaps sets a half-hearted tone to the issue which doesn't lift when you come to the better sections.

Well, it's about 64 pgs, properly bound with a spine (no staples) and opens with a 2 pg Kurt Geiger ad, followed by SUGAR RUSH, a 6 pg advertorial for Kurt Geiger with Daul Kim, shot by Benjamin Alexander Huseby.

Then its a 24 pg look at the catwalks, by theme - velvet, leather, shoulders, the colour indigo etc - with catwalk images large and small.

Then another 6 pg feature about Kurt Geiger with more shots of Daul Kim. Accessories from the catwalk gets a 4 pg look, then it's 4 pgs more Kurt Geiger stuff with Daul Kim again.

Then at the back of the supplement, a 7 pg feature "Vogue loves..." which looks at other details from the catwalks, like what hotels to stay in, the music of some shows, a few model 'off duty' shots... then it's another Kurt Geiger ad, an Ugg ad and FINALLY the beauty section, 3 pgs of small shots, it's more a list of products than it's a guide to what the make-up looks were.

The last page is the wish list of Vogue editors and boutique directors.

In short: half the supplement is Kurt Geiger advertising and a lot of the other content feels like blatant 'product placement' which is fine when there's a lot of images to look at, but the main catwalk section is only 24 pgs long.

Yes, all of the photography and clothes chosen are pretty dull. And if the clothes weren't dull the photography made them look it.
But I am very glad Richard Nicholl got featured

£42,900

I've noticed they've also started to give out make-up credits in the editorials, in the form of "make up tips", or have they always done this and I've not noticed?

They used to credit perfumes in the editorials, as an absurd form of advertising.

The whole magazine is really surprisingly boring. I don't know how they manage that with such great models cast, but...there it is.

Just got this yesterday! I really liked this issue. I am officially in love with Karlie and Lily's eds. I kinda disliked the Freja and Sasha ed. I liked the piece on Alber as well.

Well the man could be a complete ******* for all we know, so it's the work I'm going to judge and value. Just saying "man" implies that I should respect his character. It's nitpicking, but still an important distinction to me.
