This. Is. Fierce
Love the 80s Avedon vibe, it kinda looks like a Versace ad

The hair reminds of 80's cosmetics ads, or maybe a Pantene one. Anyway, this is a strange world where Kristen Stewaert can produce an arresting, glamorous cover, whereas Penelope falls flat. Is it confirmed it's M&M? This guy mentions nothing about them on his twitter. If it really is them, then they've failed twice this month to produce a September-worthy cover image.

I absolutely love this- an ode to the early 90s. Just last night I was looking at pictures of that Versace era with all the jewels, golden pieces, natural makeup and voluminous hair, there's something so oddly attractive about it, despite how opulent it is, and how unpopular opulence has been for years now.

So glad there's finally a September issue that's worth buying and looks like a keeper, the kind of issue you revisit years later. This is the W I loved- great covers and hopefully equally good content.

The cover is fantastic and without a doubt one of my favourite W cover's since Stefano became editor-in-chief.

I agree with the previous negative comments about the necklace. It's the first thing my eyes went to and now it can't be unseen Seriously tacky and distracting

I do love Penelope though, so everything else is working well here. Looking forward to the contents more than anything. W covers never wow me too much, but the eds are usually quite good (or at least they have been in the past couple of issues). I'm hoping for some surprise casting.

GREAT hair shot. Awful cover. The shot looks dated and that necklace is abominable and utterly unnecessary.

If this is the only cover, I'll pass.

Ugly necklace aside, I really love this cover. It reminds me of those ultra glamorous covers from the 70's/80's, Penélope looks beyond stunning.

This is good although it looks like a hair product campaign somehow.

Beyond boring - just like her. As lackluster as I thought it would be.

The necklace is gross. And what's on her head?
