    Ugh, if it's not the brands then it's the celebs! Someone should send Anna a link of the article which was posted in the Business of Magazines thread! She's got the power, because celebrities will always want a print cover and the US Vogue brand is still solid. No need to kowtow to their demands. Maybe then fashion will get back to business and stylists can actually go about doing their job without having to stroke egos.

    ^ Exactly, it's all getting out of control these days, I know it's tough out there for print, but standards should be kept!

    I'm loving this new Gaga and I think the cover is pretty.

    Second shot looks like a cover try, but I think the third one would've been perfect instead. Even in a fold-out format, which I'd have loved!
    Not getting much of a flow with these images despite it looking passable, they all seem somewhat unrelated. What's the point of the Klein/Teller-ish one with the sunnies, for instance?

    How's the November & December covers? I think Anna only gives whole control to singers because they are too hard to invite.

    Although that shot does indeed look out of place, I actually like that shot the most. Love the Helmut Newton vibe.

    It makes me wonder what would have happened if she'd shot with Helmut Newton - would she have been game for anything, or would things have gone down cold?

    Although he was doing Newton-by-numbers for the last part of his career, so it might not have looked any different to what we see here.

    I think this is just gorgeous. Gaga always gives something fresh. She has her weird sensibilities and I'm sure those will come with her next album (just take one look at her Instagram) but her film promo is all about movie star glamour and that's what she's giving here. It feels beautiful for fall. Everyone on this site wants something different and unique but you're never happy when you get it. Soak it in, it's fashion!

    I like it, and from all the attention monsters in her line of work she’s my favourite. :mrgreen: People say the film is good too.

    The rest of the inside photographs are gorgeous, I love Gaga and I'm really excited and happy for her with this movie. The photo lying down in the grass is just lovely, but I really adore the one with the head scarf; it reminds me of Barbra, I wonder if that was the intention?

    I will say that there isn't much of a connection between the images though. It seems to be a trend in recent years to have a series of disconnected images make up one editorial. I imagine it's some misguided idea that an Instagram feed or Pinterest board style should be replicated on the printed page. Although I really like the shots, it would have been nice if there was more of an obvious story to them.

    I&V's work is just awful these days, these shots are so drab and lifeless. The cover shot isn't greatly flattering either.

    Not a Gaga fan but I think the cover is quite lovely.

    Gaga is not really a classic beauty so, it's weird to see her in this kind of setting. Has she done something to her face or is it photoshop? It's weird. It looks nothing like before...
    I really like the shot with the sunglasses. It looks more her!

    It looks like they tried to create a certain sense of 'ease', but it looks so stiff and unnatural.
    Vogue needs to get back to letting it's creative staff do it's job, ASAP.
    Allowing celebrities to make these decisions is criminal.

    She looks so odd and sleepy on the cover. If they chose an image where she’s giving more face it would have been incredible.

    I like the editorial, though. The shot in the Givenchy with and the sunglasses is absolutely the best one!
