she looks like Annie Lennox from Sweet Dreams on the cover... I hate he outfit, and I was so happy to see she was on the cover. The editorial is good, but makes me feel really cold

I LOVE this! It reminds me so much of old Vogue covers. Very, very good and the accompanying editorial is stunning as well. Tilda is one of the very few celebrities who can do model-esque editorials without looking ridiculous.

W is getting better and better with each issue and it finally looks like Tonchi has found his footing.

ETA: the closeup of her with the supergreen eyes is exquisite. I could definitely consider putting something like that on my wall.

Me neither. I like Tilda Swinton's personal style and that's about it. She's quite overrated, IMO. One of those people that you call your favorite actress because it makes you seem cool.

This is actually the first W cover in ages that does absolutely nothing for me. And I'm not really impressed by the editorial either.

Well done.
Seriously well done.

Aside from still not understanding the point of the "Who What etc" tagline, this cover is stunning. Simple and elegant, get rid of all the fonts and it would be perfection.

This is one of the best issues of W that I've picked up in a very long time. Front to back, everything feels on point, connected and far more dynamic. Kudos to Edward!

Or you can call her your favorite actress because, you know, she's incredible.

Love the cover outfit just not a fan of the hat it kinda kills it for me. But the ed is great. Also, Tilda Swinton is AH-MAZ-ING!

Not saying she isn't a good actress or that there aren't people who actually like her for being a good actress. But it's like saying Radiohead is your favorite band. It immediately makes you sound cool and smarter than when you say your favorite actress is Megan Fox. Therefore a lot of people think she's cool because it makes them seem cool.

^ Well I love Tilda Swinton (and primarily for her acting talent) and absolutely detest Radiohead........so what does that say about me.
Anyhow unsurprisingly, this cover is very striking. This will stand-out a country mile on a newstand in a sea of same old, same old covers.
Thrilled that she is working with Walker and the editorial is amazing. Fantastic job all round.

Wow. I didn't realize that I wasn't the only one who didn't care for Tilda Swinton.

The cover itself is okay. Nothing about it really interests me.

It's beautiful .. it has the freshness and visual emotion I would get from W covers back in 2001-2002, when I'd buy it religiously. 90% of the credit goes to Tim Walker imo..
