The fencing theme seems so random but I love the pictures anyway!

What a spectacular shoot!

Over the past few months W has struggled to prove itself after a widely watched (and critiqued) reinvention and I really feel that these past two or three issues have been phenomenal in terms of content. The way they present celebrities sets the bar for other publications; how many generic shots of actresses smiling can we possibly see - or worse yet, uncomfortable editorials where actors attempt to be models. That is really the old way of doing things, I like that W and their team of photographers encourage actors to act in their portraits. There is a bit of performance in all the covers; this is a beautiful and atmospheric shoot - is the fencing theme somewhat unexpected, yes of course, but it works and its a kind of performance.

On a purely shallow note, Michael Fassbender is about as physically attractive as a man can be, if I had any kind of heart it would be beating faster just by looking at these pictures.

Such a beautiful story! The solo shot with Mia and the awkward position of her arms is my favorite, although the McQueen shot is fascinating.

Me too especially the pic where she is fencing in couture, that was meant to be a black and white shot, c'mon!

I agree, the grainy bw just had some magic allure...but the edit is still quite good

I prefer to see the b/w ed than the color ones, especially the fencing...it looks waaaay better and dramatic in b/w

As a subscriber I received the Mia-solo cover; wanted the Mia-Michael one

One of a Kind (this is really the only "fashion editorial" in this issue)
Photographed by Craig McDean
Styled by Alex White
Model Lara Stone (under Tonchi they have used her so much!)

While not a fashion editorial, Tim Walker photographs England's Glemham Hall. They should have thrown a model in here, it's a beautiful setting.

London hipsters

Great mix of celebrities that have been cover stars for W magazine and always interesting content and shoots.

^ thats why I love W. The way they photograph their celebs and give them a character unlike Vogue who just puts them in pretty dresses and takes pretty pictures. W actually makes celebrities look like models
