    I've been sleeping very bad lately but this 14 covers will surely be the insomnia remedy I've been waiting for. Can't wait.

    The David Hockney cover does nothing for me, but I am eager to see the rest.

    Yet I imagine it will be an absolute pain to track down a certain cover, with fourteen floating around. British Vogue should follow in the footsteps of the likes of CR Fashion Book, V Magazine and i-D and sell issues online, with the option to select a particular cover - especially on this occasion. Fourteen covers... there's bound to be one I want, surely.

    It's a beautiful cover and quite a coup for any magazine, let alone UK Vogue to get Hockney - I mean we're talking about one of the greatest British artists of the last century. Maybe it's not what we want/expect right now, but there are so many options an August issue can choose ATM.

    There are enough names to keep me interested here (Sims, Sade, Nick Knight), so let's see what this issue has to offer. Oh and I didn't know about Sophia - that's crazy!

    Taking into account the situation, and the time we are in.... I can understand why lots of covers have not been super exciting these days. So I am trying to be less harsh in my judgement as this is not a normal circumstance.

    I think it is a decent cover considering someone like David Hockney created it. But, if I were just looking at it without knowing who he was..it is nothing special overall.

    And, as a lot of you have said, 14 covers is a bit extreme. Maybe those will be better though?

    Why don't they just hire some REAL(***cough***vogue italia***) fashion illustrators like David Downtown?

    For all the inclusive rhetoric, UK Vogue is not beyond borrowing some of that old white man Establishment clout by getting the Alan Bennett of artists to rustle something up for the primary purposes of a press release. That the picture is supposed to function as the cover of a fashion magazine is of lesser importance.

    Trying to think of something positive - if these covers are going to depict different areas of the UK, that would be a refreshing change to how London-centric the magazine is. It would genuinely be more representative than constantly trying to reproduce the demographics of just one city on the pages, when you have the entire country to call on as inspiration.

    I like the second cover. If the issue is going to be filled with landscape photographs similar to that by Nadine I may actually buy it. I will gladly take this over boring fashion eds they usually do.

    ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhaahahahahahahahahhaahhahahaahhaahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhaahhahahahaa no.

    I actually feel pain looking at this. Why are editors so stupid? Why is fashion so pretentious? Looking at this shlt, I miss the times when fashion was blissfully ignorant. I know, it's unacceptable to say, I don't care. I want fashion to be about fashion. All the great editors of the past are currently rolling in their graves at the sight of this ungodly pretentiousness. If you wanted to run a travel and culture magazine, you're in the wrong goddamn profession. Please, switch!
    I can't believe how hateful I've become over stupid magazine covers these days, they're like a disturbingly offensive joke and the fact that people praise this 'awareness' makes it all even worse. I truly wasn't going to say anything hateful about this, but I couldn't help it. I'm disgusted and disappointed and I want to sue someone for putting me in this position month after month. Vogue Paris is the only real Vogue left.
