My first thought was that I didn't like it. But it's growing on me. I think it's the oversized black leather jacket. And the messy quality, of course. Typical Teller, really, but pretty fetching on a cover.
This is why I love W. Jansson's ed is absolutely terrific and atmospheric (and quite different from his usual work over at Interview). Cara is working it as well and I have to say I'm starting to warm up to her as months go by and we see her in different kinds of print work. Now I can't wait for the Teller ed.
OMG I love that editorial! The setting is amazing, and the combination of b&w shots with color gives it a more dramatic atmosphere, vinatge-ish. Didn't recognize Cara at first sight, I really have to congratulate her, she did a very good job as well as the W team on this one.

Wow wow wow. But Cara is again the weak link. She doesn't evoke an adult, which the editorial seems to call for. There are dozens - hundreds! - of models who would have fit much better. Other than that, this is really a beautiful editorial.
