Saiorse in that cheap-looking quinceañera dress, the overly dramatic make-up on the first girl, and the hideous brick wall.

Juergen Teller is the worst!
Best comment ever! You win.
And yes, he is the worst.

I'm actually embarrassed for everyone involved looking at this. How can they think this is passable? It doesn't even reach mediocrity, I would actually be ashamed to say I had worked on this. Juergen Teller should have stayed in the 90s when at least his work can be reflected on as 'of the times'..in the present day it just looks lazy and unappealing

^^^ I wouldn’t place much of the blame on Juergen.

He was always one of very limited range.His aesthetic outside of the backstage stripped and raw concept was always going to be stretching his very limited repository of creative concepts. Since he’s a top brand now, his laziness in making any creative effort won’t bother many people: He's Juergen Teller. that's all that matters to many editors.

The blame should be aimed at close range towards Stefano. He’s always been meek, lacking direction and totally useless. Why he’s continued to secure a place in such a high-profile role is beyond me. This person has never possessed the slightest hint of vision. This “Volume” concept is already DOA. Why would anyone be convinced to pay for it when it looks so generically bland, and we’ve all seen the done before— by everyone.

Editors and creative directors need to know how to cast photographers according to their( oftentimes extremely limited) range, otherwise it’s a guarantee this type of weak imagery will pollute fashion publications time and time again.

Just read this article about the whole Volume gimmick, and to me it sounds like "'too little, too late". This magazine is no longer covetable and the fact that the first issue of this new era is an awful reprint is the last nail on W's coffin.

Now, god knows it would have been amazing to have better paper quality five or six years ago when this magazine was actually worthwhile alas Walker's best work had to printed on awfully thin paper. Now they're just wasting good stock printing this mess of an edit.

When he used to shoot things for Patrick's W they were actually quite nice, that was like 10 years ago though. It doesn't help that he started shooting on digital, it makes his work look even more generic.

Quinceañeras wish their dresses were as sobber as the one on Saoirse, still it looks like a mess.

This all looks so cringe and pretentious. Atleast Jake looks cute though.

McCarthy must be cackling wherever he is, and I'm sure Fairchild is turning in his grave to see what has become of his beloved W. He wasn't behind the idea of selling to CN and wasn't a big fan of Tonchi either. At least with McCarthy's W it was high fashion, society and later on celebrity. Nowadays it's none of the three because Tonchi doesn't have a handle on fashion, celebrity, nor society. He's just so out of touch. How is this 'best permgormances' idea innovative in any way when it's done better year in and out by Vanity Fair. At least with Elle it makes sense because they're a women's magazine with a feminist undertone. What does W really bring to the table?

It's bizarre a cover of UK Vogue is a reprint. Although seen as how it came out first, I suppose technically W is the reprint? It's odd either way. And that shoot is an absolute eyesore. It was bad enough seeing that weird image of Nicole and Margot on one cover, let alone two.

I love the idea but the pictures are not very good. I can't believe you have in the same cover Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence and that looks so boring!

Wow, it looks identical to many Meisel editorials. These two are so unoriginal.

Still, it's nice to look at. Vitto looks amazing.
