    It's another awesome issue. Much better than the last.

    If only the current Valentino campaign had looked something like that, I'd have bought into the idea of a new 'girlish' aesthetic for the brand. A fresh young face in slightly eerie settings, it's a sophisticated ghost story.

    There's also a pull out bookzine with Cindy Sherman modelling vintage Chanel couture :heart:

    I'm a total Pop fanboy since Dasha took over so my opinion is a bit meaningless but I really love this issue. The styling is wonderful, the photographers are almost all new to me and the model castin is fantastic, with a few exceptions.
    The fronyt of book stuff has had a big redesign, though I think that's just because the first half of the issue has a Tokyo theme so they tried to make it look like a japanese mag.

    It's too literal for me. I know it's Murakami and he is literal as hell, but if I want a Japanese magazine, I'll buy Fruits.

    Britney looks like a mannequin, which actually fits the theme but I just feel depressed looking at her. She is dead behind the eyes and I can't help but think about her history and if she really wants to do this. It just makes me sad.

    I am interesting in the Cindy Sherman minizine or whatever it is in there.

    I love Dasha's POP. I like that there is an obvious yet earnest effort put forth by the magazine staff to do things differently...whether or not it always works is besides the point. At least it's not stale and formulaic.

    These Britney covers are awesome. I adore them.

    It looks so cool! The covers are amazing (even if Britney doesn't look the greatest) and the editorials sound superb! :heart:

    Agreed. What I like most about Dasha's Pop is that they don't rely on contributing editors to save the magazine from being a total waste of paper - which I think is what Love is successfully doing. :innocent:

    These have to be some of the most fascinating magazine covers I have seen all year. Britney's role in popular culture has always intrigued me, particularly after her epic public breakdown. Like Marilyn Monroe before her, Britney is a tragic figure who was built up by the public around her only to be sacrificed later on, a sort of a sacrificial virgin. I think the way Britney is represented on these covers both reinforce and feed into this image. On one cover, she is a subservient bride, passively looking up to the viewer with her piercing sad eyes that shield her inner emotional turmoil. She is sweetly and saccharinely smiling, but the grin is forced and fake. Her tousled hair and dissheveled appearance--which is very similar to the way that Britney appears in public nowadays-- suggest that all is not as it may appear to be. On the other cover, she takes on the role of the teenage sex bomb, a role she so perfectly embodied when she first arrived on the pop scene more than 10 years ago. In a way, she is playing her former self. In addition, she does not have the same dead look here as she does on the first cover. On this cover, she looks more sultry than sedated. She coquettishly ogles and teases the viewer much like she did on her infamous Rolling Stone cover. In my opinion, the two covers sum up Britney's life in two different images which, when combined, tell a consecutive story. Britney started off as the teenage sex-bomb, but then was eventually forced to become the subservient (sacrificial) bride by the world around her.

    I am probably reading too much into this, but I really do think the mise-en-scene and costumes invite some sort of interpretation that goes beyond the whole Japanese schoolgirl theme. Britney was specifically chosen for these covers for a reason and the way she is depcited, in my opinion, was carefully thought out. These images actually remind me of Warhol's garishly colored paintings of Marilyn Monroe (particularly the use of tacky, kitschy aesthetics and also the fact that Britney, who is sort of a modern day Marilyn, is the one being depicted), which, of course, commented on Monroe's own role as an icon and a tragic figure. Maybe the Warhol paintings served as some sort of inspiration?

    I love it. It took me a little bit, but I feel like I 'get' it (lol). Seriously though, I think it may just be the best cover Britney has ever done. I agree with the above post, the combination of Britney and this style cover is not a chance occurrence, rather it was intentional. I think it's going to become iconic with time, even if not everyone likes it right now.

    I don't really know how to describe my feelings about the covers. They're haunting, sexy, submissive, and captivating. When I first saw these covers I didn't care for them too much, but I keep wanting to see them again and again.

    These covers stand out so much more than other magazines' covers. Great work by Pop and great use of Britney Spears (I still love her).
