I do like how it's set out and the colour co-ordinating but it's just a weird cover sorry. I'm not very patriotic so anything with flags doesn't really grab me.

Yeah she does look like Mila a little bit. I guess the cover ok. I mean at least it's unique and something we haven't seen before at least something I haven't seen before.

I don't ever see a model getting the cover of W again, unless they're Kate, Gisele, etc. It just doesn't seem to be that type of magazine anymore.

However, I am glad to see Michael Thompson back. I don't care for this cover, but whatever, but I just hope that this means that we'll get to see more (and better) covers from him for W in the near future.

Love the theme but both Justin and Amanda look awkward.

Justin looks like a woman dressed up as Justin.

I wish they would've left this for Amanda alone, she's so pretty.

They both look a little fake I suppose. And the whole Americana thing going on is interesting- although I'm weirdly disturbed by this imagery as well. It feels like a cover that would have been around during the 1950's or something, with the president (or someone running for president) and his wife clinging onto his arm. It kinda harks back to the days the boys club in politics (which to an extent I suppose still exists but not in the way it once was). I dunno but it doesn't sit well with me for some reason, although I'm having trouble completely composing all my reasons why. I don't want this to be a completely negative review, so I do have to give W props for experimenting with the cover rather then continuing the trend of boring covers. At least they are slowly taking more risks.

LOVE this cover. Very tongue-in-cheek campy kind of stuff by poking fun at presidential candidates and classic Americana. I don't see the editorial posted here (maybe because of that new incomplete editorial rule) but it's on W's website and it looks great. Love the concept of Amanda's lovelorn presidential wife getting a fashionable revenge on her cheating husband.

great cover! JT looks great (thou normally I'm not a fan of this guy) Amanda looks pretty! The American flag suits the cover really well

It's a good cover in my own opinion. The American Flag behind them is the most interesting part to me. Although what's up with Justin's facial expression? It just doesn't go well with Amanda's. But when I was looking at the cover, I suddenly thought of this idea that Justin's a political entity while Amanda's a hooker.

The only thing that's great about this one is that Michael Thompson shot it! So glad he's back at W now. And yep, hopefully, we'll get to see more cover from him in the magazine's future issues.
