    Adding this from the cover rumor thread in case it’s deleted there.

    This looks so dull just like Vogue Australia.

    It could've been better. It had all the elements of a perfect cover tbh.

    ".... but diversity"

    By the cover line seems like a fold Out cover. I'm between Mert & Marcus or Leibovitz work foto the cover.

    Great, the first time a yellow skin-actress is featured on the cover of US Vogue, she is reduced to an “exotic” entity, hence the need to write the word “Global” as part of the coverline.

    I’m surprised because it’s unexpected. And I’m excited about it

    This is unexpected and tbh should have been done 10 years ago, but i guess its better late than never.

    I wish the styling is less bridesmaids-y though

    Wow, shocked at the choice because I certainly did not expect them at all. Very happy for Doona, and this is BIG for Deepika. She really got it made now, and I actually like her the most on this cover. What could she be in to warrant such a big cover? Doona I can understand, but not her.

    The styling looks like the sort of thing Grace Coddington could do with her eyes closed, and better than this. I wish it were shot on location.
    Also, Scarlett is maybe towering too much over the other two and it does not look like they're aware of each other! It's like those global Vogue China/India launch covers with Gemma Ward (now we know who approved them.) And Doona looks very meek and submissive. From a cultural perspective, that leaves a bitter aftertaste.

    yellow skin? wtf? I even feel embarrassed to read descriptions like that one. omg some countries are so f*cking racist.

    people are people. there is only one race and it's the human race.

    Nice try at diversity vogue!
    if only u haven't made Doona and Deepika look like two Asian maids for white princess Scarlett

    what's even more racist than racist, is trying-hard-to-be-non-racist-and-fail

    I'm an Indonesian, I should've known better not to use the term yellow-skin when referring to East Asians. I'd like to deeply apologize for my ignorance.

    Okay, back to the cover itself. Styling-wise, I like its ethereal quality, but the positioning of each girl is beyond disconnected. It's almost as if their individual shots were copy-pasted into one picture, which, I won't be surprised if it was.

    Why didn't they position them like the models on 2014's September Issue cover, or if they were going for sparse, I'd rather see them being grouped like the November 1999, November 2000, or May 2007 cover.

    Apologize for the wrong and inappropriate description of my own color.

    This is MAJOR for Deepika, wow! I have loved her since I saw her in the movie Cocktail. It feels like a very random choice, to see both her and Doona, but I always love unexpected cover stars.

    "So Scarlett, let's have you in the middle, higher than the other ladies."

    Saying Scarlett is portrayed “higher and more important”, because she is in the middle is stretching it, I think. This is a diverse cover for US Vogue and thanks for that. Lots of people here really don’t know when to stop throwing race cards here and there.
    Let’s be happy for Asian women on the cover for once.

    So random, but it doesn't look bad.
    Does Scarlet still look like that?
