    I’m very shocked, I would have put money on Lady Gaga being the February cover star.

    But I am presently surprised, I like the general aesthetic of the cover and the colours all work quite well.

    those titles... can they be more subtle than straight to the face FEMINISM? it’s not even a safe title now, it’s just a cliché, new generation easily get bored of it. they’re busying praising the new epitome of male beauty now.

    This is exactly what you expect when you put her on the cover (LV and a lot of makeup), but I like it a lot this time.

    Sex, lies and motherhood? Is this Cosmopolitan?
    So he's also using the american Vogue headline font too now? He desires that job so much it's painful to watch. However, lovely cover and a lovely editorial, looking forward to it.

    Reading those coverlines is giving me deja vu, they seemed lifted straight off pass issues of US Vogue, especially the “novel scandalizing France” which I can bet was on US Vogue before. Emma in Louis Vuitton, groundbreaking. Bills got to get paid I guess.

    I like it, it's a nice departure from Edward's usual studio covers - I do wish he'd make his mind up with the design direction though, I'm not a fan of the inconsistency.

    It's nice and surprising to see Emma, but I have to say that I was looking forward to seeing what Edward might do with Gaga - I highly doubt she'll be on the March cover, so I'm sad to see the opportunity missed.

    Awful cover, but decent editorial. It feels pretty classic to me.

    Lovely background I must say.

    But that eye makeup? No.

    That styling? No.

    That hair? Maybe.

    Also, Harper’s Bazaar UK circa 2008-2010 and Vogue Paris circa 2008/2009 called and they want their dead art direction back where they burried it.

    Also, the shadows... very 2008!

    Not a bad cover all in all. But surely not the savior of Vogue.

    But the main editorial intrigues me. I would have wanted to see her hair in all its glory on the cover

    Photo:
    Emma looks so scared + the outfit is wearing her.
    The excessive retouch is also evident on this.

    Layout:
    Why are you surprised? They already did a cover using this
    font last year (November 2018). I guess Vogue US will also use
    their font for its Feb issue similar to what happened that month.

    Aesthetic:
    It reminds me of Teen Vogue's December 2012 cover,
    but at least they tried something new instead of their usual
    white cover backgrounds.

    I imagined she would not have a cover, Ed never gave a W cover to her.

    I don’t want to sound like a hater but i’m Not a fan of this...
    I don’t hate it either...
    So we have the Louis Vuitton Ambassador photographed the Louis Vuitton photographer....
    The story gives me Cedric Buchet/ Carine Roitfeld vibes.

    From her head upwards, I like it - it reminds me of a cover we'd have seen about ten years ago and the blue background goes well together with the pink masthead and bright makeup. My problem is the styling - wtf is that floral straitjacket all about? The pose she's making looks so uncomfortable...it really throws off what could have been a good shot.

    Who does Saoirse Ronan have to screw to get a Vogue UK cover? Felicity Jones or the bevy of British talent, for that matter.

    Wintour fancies Stone enough, we didn't need to see her here.

    Somehow, I don't hate that cover, even though I couldn't tell you why it has any appeal at all, given that she looks like a clown wearing a terrible painting of flowers.

    And the editorial images are so different - they wouldn't look out of place on the pages of Porter or UK Bazaar, which is probably why anything from that shoot hasn't made the cover.

    Good news for Edward, though - someone has bought me a new subscription to UK Vogue, so I can look forward to yet another year where I feel fully entitled to constantly complain about the magazine, because he's already got my readership in the bag, which is what counts in the end.

    No! She is not selling me this, the make up, the styling, the hair, her expression. It is all just SO cold, and remote!!! And that ed is just sad!

    It loooks like she’s wearing a pop up tent.
