I just love the message. So satire yet brilliant.

Totally know what you mean.. In the first second I thought I love it, but than I realised it's not really a cover shot, the sign she's holding seemed pretty distracting for a moment too. But now I think it's brilliant and the reasons why I didn't like it for a while became the reasons I'm a big fan oif it. Everything matches each other perfectly ( even "W" looks so good where it is! ) and I love the fact it's not just another portret, but means something

Ehhh...I don't know what to feel, mainly stupid because I can't 100% grasp what she's getting at with the cardboard sign, I have a few ideas but...yeah I won't say

Glad to see an Art cover that manages to combine a gorgeous set-up with a genuinely interesting message.

Normally I detest Linda and find her face too unnatural looking, but I just got my copy today and was thrilled to see some semblance of emotion etched into her features. And I like the cover as a whole, as well.

Linda's editorial also has some nice shots, particularly one of her in a dark field lounging in a car, wearing couture lace and garters, surrounded by chickens. Don't ask me why I like it. I haven't a clue.

Overall though the issue is lost on me. I don't care enough about contemporary art to enjoy a full issue devoted to the topic. I wish there was more of a merging between art and fashion. As it is it's too focused on the one thing, save for the Maurizio Cattelan/Linda Evangelista ed.

she looks great on that pic
it's certainly far more interesting to see her pictured that way imo, rather than some attempts to make her look a bit too similar to her early works, even if the later was somehow necessary to keep the image/love alive, it was also necessary to break it now and this one is terribly well done

It's arty. It's funny. It's provocative. It's cool. And what a contrast to the latest Vogue cover. Thank goodness it's not a celeb and Linda looks wonderful.

A victory for fashion!

Finally! An art issue cover that gets it right. The difference between this cover and past W art covers is subtle but I'm so glad the image clicks with the art historian in me. Love it!

I like the fact that the art issues are progressively creative with a point of view. I thought that the case was impossible after the horrible Brangelina cover. This is totally capturing and the image becomes even stronger once you lay your eyes on the sign. Pure simplicity that reveals an unexpected side to a pretty much ordinary shot.
