    Deposit it being pink, it's still very morbid. She looks like a living corpse. Not really Doutzen's fault, but more Demarchelier and the stylist.

    What a heavy cover. I'd never put that on the cover. The clothes don't look nice. Uncomfortably odd

    It will immediately catch your eye on the newsstand, that's for sure. Overall a weird cover, it seems like she's going to attend a procession walk.

    I think the link masthead is just a little overkill (considering the garment). Maybe a black masthead would have been better.

    I don't like it. It looks unfinished...

    Very dramatic and a bit retro, but I expected something exotic and tropical looking at the preview from the December issue. My main complaint is that there are no arms here.

    Nice cover
    She looks flawless & I personally like that outfit & pink overload .. but I understand if people think it's too much pink

    However I'm totally in love with her photo from the December preview in red outfit... wish they picked that shot for this cover!

    i'm in the minority here, but i like the cover. it's SO eye-catching and simple yet dramatic at the same time.

    I like the minimalism of the styling, I just wish that Doutzen didnĀ“t look so sad.

    It looks like she's at the hairdressers. The cape is on, the hair has been washed - she's just waiting for the stylist.

    Now that you said it, I can't look at the cover in the same way :lol:
    But I still like it and I'm always happy to see Doutzen.

    I applaud their attempt to try something new, but it's a fail. It's like they were trying to do what Vogue Ukraine has been so successful at, but the result is not nearly as good. Ultimately, I just don't think the image is strong enough for a cover, especially a cover like this.

    The styling looks too strict for her, it's aged her about a decade. She looks gaunt and morbid.

    I don't like seeing Doutzen like this, I really like her.

    My sentiments exactly! This almost looks like a teaser to get us excited for an upcoming Doutzen/Vogue Russia cover - far from a finished product. As someone else has mentioned, the cover looks unfinished and is a missed opportunity.

    Nevertheless, I'm very keen to see Demarchelier's cover story with Doutzen!

    What on earth is the link between the cover and edit??? The 4th preview would have been a far better option. I really wish VR would sever their ties with Demarchelier! He's as washed up as Doutzen's 'hairstyle'.
