I still wonder about people who only buy magazines based on who's on the cover. That doesn't make any sense to me. If a model is on the cover then suddenly the magazine is much better than ever despite the same editors, writers, stylists...etc?

^^The contents of this issue actually look interesting though.......of late they have usually included one editorial and usually with a celebrity, which has bored me senseless.

I am crying and shaking IRL......I have never been her fan, but then editors managed to pull back from vulgarity with US Vogue debut and now this, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, completely unKleinesque

EVEN better is the review, Sorrenti's ed excites me, Guinevere, a forest, feathers , and I hope I&V pull an ed of their old W proportions. I need this RTM, definetely seemingly the best issue so far this year

This is a very good issue. I like all the eds and while its not the thickest W I would wager that it packs a pretty good punch. Nothing groundbreaking in this one but very solid editorial content.

The cover is lovely, and the cover alone has overtaken that of April's issue with Drew Barrymore which I believe to be the only bearable issue of 2009 thus far. Here's to hoping this will be a killer issue.

even though i'm not a biggest/huge fan of Lara, i must say the she looks GREAT on the cover! i love it. softer side of Lara. though i didn't expect that she'd grace the cover. i love the photography and the concept of the cover. she's wearing Chanel right?

the content sounds exciting and promising too! can't wait to see them!!!

Love Lara, I think she's very unique, but iconic... I'm sorry, she might be someday, but she still has to work her butt of for that... you can't compare the amount of work she's done to the newest supermodels like Gisele or even Karolina in smaller scale... When Gisele was named a supermodel she was on the cover of W, US Vogue, Harper's Bazaar at the same month, and Dolce, Dior, Versace, ads in th same season... she was at the cover of Rolling Stones for christ sake... I hope Lara gets the same recognition, but she still have to prove herself as more than a (very) good edgy model.

OMG, I knew it that one day she would score a solo W cover! I like that the cover is not in your face as the last couple of Steven Klein W covers. OMG!
