This issue sounds fantastic! Can't wait to see the eds! Especially the one with 3 Asian girls.

^ You bring up an interesting point, though. At this point in time can Kate Moss really be considered that different than some equally prominent celebrity? Both are essentially featured because they have an immediately recognizable name and face that moves units.

Honestly Kate's way more overexposed than a lot of W's more recent celeb cover models.

Phenomenon both covers, this is why Kate was called supermodel.

I agree... Kate definitely has celebrity status, which is probably the only reason she still gets mag covers (Gisele is similar in that sense... you almost can't consider them model covers any more)

Though she has that celebrity recognition, her image isn't being controlled by handlers, studios etc, so what we see has to be truer to the magazine's vision at least, right?
The images push boundaries a bit more...

I think her celebrity status depends on who you're asking. I think in the UK she's probably considered as much as a celebrity as any old actress when she gets a cover, but in the US I think she's kind of a semi-celebrity. She's more famous there for being a model (I don't think she's gossiped about THAT much in the US), so when she gets an American cover it sort of is a "model" cover.

I agree. Would a model (Moss) get a cover of the American Vogue??
Also, besides Gisele and Kate, I'd add Heidi Klum

And I think I am the only person on tFS that isn't in love with Kate Moss.

I've gotta say I'm glad M&M didn't shoot this because the "raw" aspect of these covers is what makes them pop. I mean how often do you see pores and blemishes, etc... on a cover? Rarely, so it's nice to see Kate depicted as flesh and blood as opposed to a glossy image.

The second cover i feel was not necessary, i dont like anything about it, the first one is still epic though. Thanks for the previews, they look fantastic.
