    A bit too summery for November. However, I love me some Serena and it’s a fresh cover so no bigger complaints from me.

    Pretty cover but so, so tired of seeing her all the time. Is she the only sportswoman who can score a Vogue cover? What about Naomi Osaka?

    Not Vogue enough, this basic image belongs to Self.

    This is just so US Vogue. Can Edward treat this as a British magazine for now at least before he gets Anna's job which I doubt he will get and hope he doesn't? Also, read his editor's note on the website and he is talking about the US election. Can you just focus on the UK, please? Thank you

    The cropping, the way her eyes look nearly closed, the hairstyling, and the overabundance of summery white on a November issue are all not quite working for me. Not a terrible cover, though, and Serena looks beautiful.


    Watch everyone in the press and online praise Edward for this, meanwhile Anna already gave her 3 covers, including this stunner:

    Hmm usually Serena really delivers. Here she looks just ok.

    I thought this was Vogue US and it could've been shot by Annie.

    Took the words out of my mouth. I love Serena, but in the last couple of years she has been so overexposed in magazines. Let's shine the spotlight on others please. Naomi would indeed be a great choice, or Coco Gauff, or even Venus!

    We already have an American Vogue Edward and trust us we don’t need another.

    Alexandra for all her faults was no d*mb cookie, so I’m certain she would have started placing a greater emphasis on diversity, if for nothing more than self survival. I’m curious to know what her very British take on diversity would have looked like.

    Zoe Ghertner’s photography here is naff and all I want to do is tilt and shift the cover image, because the cropping is awful. I guess I can appreciate the cover for its minimalism - and nothing else. Overall, the cover is indeed very American Vogue and offers nothing new.

    Edward uses UK as resume to become EIC of US VOGUE

    I love it, the minimalism and the slight touch of red looks very classic. Its also nice to see a softer side to her though the eyebrows seem a little exaggerated here which throws off the picture a bit.

    Wasn't she just on the cover of American Vogue? Why is she on the cover of British Vogue? It's beautiful tho.
    She's so overexposed, and brings nothing fresh to fashion. Do British people even care about her like that?
    Anna should put Venus on a cover. I'd love that! Naomi Osaka needs to come through too!

    Have to agree with everyone else that it has become rather stale to see Serena on magazine covers, but i can't complain about this image. I think she looks better here when compared to some of her other covers, especially her last cover for Harpers and Vogue.

    Striking resemblance to US Vogue (image and masthead only!), but I can't say I like it. Looks like a supplement cover, way too little coverlines. Plus the fashion looks basic and I don't like the new art direction.

    That's a super boring cover. And while there should be room for both her and another tennis player, there clearly isn't, so if I had to choose, I'd like to see Naomi get a big cover for once.
