    It seems to me that this editiorial is a modern take on classic Americana elements. So the styling seems pretty cohesive and unified in that sense.

    Well, it seems to me Samira and Collier tried to go quirky, within their extremely limited viewpoint? It's just too awkward. Michelle looks stiff in all the shots, especially the one with the gloves, which should've been the winner. A creative director worth his/her salt could easily have amplified this. McDean recently proved that you don't need an outlandish location to pull together a rich, storytelling edit. His entire shoot for VI was based in front of a beige backdrop.

    My point is that Radhika and Samira would need to work a little harder to set this magazine apart from the rest. This is a luxury magazine! We can get this style of edit any month from an Elle.

    American Vanity Fair has always been obnoxious. Now it's insufferably pretentious as well.

    Such a vapid shoot that's the brand of limited creativity conjured by a 1st-year design student high on their newly-discovered sense of feminism. I'm sure the female-gaze sheep will devour this as some profound display of empowerment: The macho American archetypes subverted by a woman. Zzzzzz....

    The only image that is decent is the B&W one of her as a swimmer with her back to the camera.

    Actually, love the cover and ed, color composition emotion, check. Some of the best work Ive seen from Collier to be frank and Williams looks chic. But for September? No. Its a miss.

    Love this cover! Clean and crisp. Michelle is such a classy, gorgeous woman. The interview really giving me a deeper perspective into who Michelle Williams is. As a regular subscriber, I'm loving the new direction of this magazine.

    It was a surprise to see Yasmin Le Bon on the cover of the motoring supplement that comes with the UK edition, and where there's fashion and cars, there's also David Gandy, although he's got clothes on.
