Keira's cover is a great surprise! Not thrilled about the others, though. Also, I'm not too sure how I feel about the format being even bigger than usual when it was already larger than every other magazine.
I read somewhere that the idea for the covers was that the actresses would look completely different than their normal self.....they succeeded! Really like these covers. The only exception is Scarlett's, she looks a bit too much like Lily Munster (and not in a good way).
I honestly expected more when I saw the tittle. I love all the ladies, but the covers are a bit too overworked and plastic, I wish they had chosen something more natural. I do like the decades styling though, can't wait for the editorial.
^totally agree with that. These covers are the opposite of photoshop exercises. The idealization has, instead, taken place through lighting, make-up etc....and, as so often, the result is far better than the computational approach.
@t-rex and iluvjeisa: There is a massive 27-page edit featuring portraits of nearly every designer and creative director and another edit featuring a few select unpublished photos from various photogs called "Unpublished".
As for the covers, they are printed on a thin, matte-styled material that makes it sorta rubbery.
