    How can you mess up with Dua Lipa?

    The eye makeup is a mess.

    The styling is a mess.

    I kind of like it; I just wish 'Vogue' was behind her head.

    It's not as strong as Edward's headshot/cropped studio covers, but none of his full body or location covers are. I wouldn't be mad about it if he just stuck with the close up formula because it works, but for something different I don't mind this too much at all.

    Also, Edward gets plus points for using a newer photographer, especially a woman - we don't don't get that many ladies behind the lens of major covers, let alone women of colour! It's really refreshing and I'm glad that the magazine is being diverse behind the scenes too. I do hope Edward can move on from "diversity" as a shtick and just put it into action without harping on about it constantly anymore. I understand why they did in the beginning but it's time now to have it be a given that people of different ages, ethnicities and body shapes are a part of the magazine, it's more powerful that way.

    I see her name everywhere, but I couldn't name a song by her, if my life depended on it. Anyways, this cover is dreadful.

    This totally works, never seen her look this intersting without trying hard. It's serene.

    It's a little too dull for my liking. I like that they tried something different with Dua but there's no spark.

    About time she got a cover, she's massive here.

    This may be the Future Issue, but the styling and setting looks straight out of the 50s. So I must ask, if Edward is so dead set on courting youth, and that can clearly be gathered by the casting, why such stodgy styling? Damn, I'd say Alexandra did more youthful covers in one year than he did.

    It's not an inherently awful shot.Like a budget and unevolved take on debutante darlings of yesteryear. But it could still have been salvaged. Should for starters be zoomed in way more to make it passable. And Dua Lipa is naturally beautiful so that much makeup wasn't needed. Especially when it alters her profile to such an extent.

  14. I couldn't recognize her if I didn't know it was her. Terrible, poor, looks like Harper's Bazaar.

    A bit disappointed. I wish it was a liiiitle more zoomed in and had a different makeup.

    I'm sure the ed will have some greats pics, this girl is gorgeous.

    Couldn't they zoom it in and make it half-decent? Hair and makeup are not helpful either.

    I bet this time, nobody will question her relevancy or the need for her to be on the cover of Vogue....:innocent::innocent::innocent:

    But i like her. She has an energy and from what i've seen of her, she pull off High Fashion quite well.
    It's a cover. I don't see anything else to say.

    Still not an English designer or brand on the cover of this Vogue. I guess we have to wait for Burberry to buy a cover for this to happen.

    Super thrilled to see Dua Lipa, but this is a miss. Can't believe they did her wrong. She's a stunning girl with a strong face. They could have done something so much better than this.

    Oh God, that's not good. I suppose they've tried to strip her of her usual look, and make her feel fresh and new. A sophisticated Miss Lipa.

    If it's £2, I'll buy it, because it's nice to see new people working for Vogue, and there might be better shots inside... but between that orange eyeshadow and what looks like a brown bag background, I'll not get my hopes up.

    Although I'm quite happy tonight, I thought my Tatler subscription had expired, but I came home to find the January issue had arrived, and I'm hoping there's enough glamour in that magazine that it won't matter if Vogue can't supply the same. It's time to rip open the bag...
