I'm just annoyed by the abuse of the word icon, what's an icon? icon of what or who? too much responsibilities and parameters and way too many demands.. I can't even get around the logic of the zeitgeist, let alone "icon".
and then, it's SO corny.
ah. to define is to limit I insist.

imagebam is still offline. how irritating.

thanks for posting, Luxx. always appreciated.

So lucky that this will be the 1st issue I receive, YAY
Lara is no doubt a captivating figure and I adore her for that; can't wait to see her editorial

The market no longer allows for this. How often do we even see a model on the cover of those magazines anymore, let alone a model that is newer? Gisele and Karolina emerged during a time when those opportunities were still present each month. Now each and every one of those magazines is essentially dominated by celebrities and the odds of any model - even a supermodel such as Gisele appearing on all of those magazines at once is unlikely. I think we have to judge differently now - the rules have changed. We have bonafide supermodels who have yet to get a single only girl slot on Vogue US or W - for Lara to get a cover of a major American fashion magazine and an article about her is very good. If anything this reminds me of Daria's W cover. People who don't know much about Lara are going to get to see her shine.

I also don't think the conversation should be whether or not Lara is an icon. We don't know what is going to be considered iconic in a few years - this time next year we could all be having this conversation about someone else entirely. I think what is more important is what makes Lara the girl of the moment and why she has been selected as opposed to other girls.

Magazines are a medium that increasingly vie to produce instant classics, icons, supermodels... all swept up in emotion. Magazines want to be in the spotlight & have the glamor of being first. Come on Lara just look pretty for us... and no one better tell them she isn't. But here comes 2011 & maybe by then you'll be saying... Hey Lara! What have you done for me lately? Magazines have to keep looking forward. And there's always another model out there somewhere looking to grab the spotlight. I'm looking at that cover & I'm thinking it has a certain star quality about it. But then again... maybe it's only infatuation... not love.

The cover is amazing. And yes I agree the word "icon" is overused, but I also think that Lara is definitely on the path of Daria and Gemma. When Agyness was first dubbed as "fashion's new it girl" she hadn't made nearly the same impact as Lara has.
Anyway, this is so exciting. It's really irritating that imagebam is still not working.

I wasn't expecting that cover at all when I read it was Lara, but she looks great and it's good to see something different from her.

Good cover and happy to see Lara... but not too keen of the light effect.
Anyway, this issue seems promising, need to see more.

^let us give whoever will scan the eds a time. maybe he/she isn't just in the mood right now.

then again where is Mert & Marcus again ?
^this is what made me wonder too when i read the content in the first page. i was surprised to know that M&M aren't part of this issue. kinda' sad. but then again, maybe W is saving them for September since Sept. issues are the fashion issues of fall season.

can't wait to see the editorials!
