    You have got to be kidding me.

    In the words of the then-great Anna Wintour — Anna, this is Vogue. Let’s lift it.

    The image looks so pedestrian af! I’d mistake this for an instagram Holiday photo!

    Where’s the goddamn glamour?

    Also, see I told you. This magazine has a limited selection of WOC. Lupita Jan, Serena Feb. Don’t let 2017 fool you. There are so many WOC out there who are killing it, and Serena gets the cover because she got a child and she’s a favorite. Yup.

    How long until Anna retire?
    OMG , this is so bad. Another year, with Anna favorite pets.

    I love Serena, but again? This is bad in every single way.

    Kudos to put two black girls in a row.

    I thought it was Chaka Khan for a sec. I appreciate the intention, but the execution is awful. This could easily be a People Magazine cover.

    Exactly my thoughts, could be People magazine. I like it, love the colors but looks like a picture she could have posted herself on instagram.

    If only they had made this tiny angel laugh or smile, it would have been radiant and inviting. I adore babies and small kids, but they always look so awkward (logically) on magazine covers, with parents usually holding them as trophies.

    I don't know why but I don't dislike it one bit. It looks pedestrian, yes, but that's what Vogue has become anyway. It works really well for the brand IMO.

    I don't see anything wrong with another Serena cover, after all Vogue is about celebrating the best of the best, and she's the most celebrated and highest paid female athlete in the world! Anna is a huge Tennis fanatic, so of course Serena is one of her favourites.

    I don´t think anyone is complaining about the cover choice but that the execution is terrible.

    Always ambushing us with her Vogue covers! :lol: She's just so random that nobody would ever guess she'd get it.

    Anyway, just like her last cover I find this one too busy as well. It's as if fashion editors are scared to experiment with Serena despite the fact that she's game for anything. I say this with zero malice, but the baby's got a very mature face despite being new.

    She is beautiful but this cover is weird. It's so random!
    The last pic would have made a perfect cover...If she wasn't wearing a blue dress.

    It's official, Vogue Paris won the february battle.

    Love this, sure it's not very Fashiony, but Vogue, and Wintour's Vogue is espeically very "lifestyle", so I don't mind this, it's such a beautiful cover image, they both look gorgeous!

    Maybe i am just biased since i love Serena, but thank GOD it's not Dakota J. again!

    I don’t dislike it as an image, I just dislike it as a Vogue cover. It lacks any kind of fashion element, at all. Which is a shame. She looks beautiful but sadly it’s all just a bit lacking for a cover of what should be a fashion magazine.
