    This is a new low, even for them. I can't get past that Blingee Vogue logo .gif.

    I remember Vogue did a wonderful digital-motion cover with Beyonce and Patrick Demarchelier back in the day.

    What is this rubbish? That stunning solo shot of her in a red dress would have made a stunning cover. Is that GIF a feature we could use on Google Pixel?

    I don’t understand why some of you guys are surprised to see them on the cover or are questioning the relevance of the two...

    It’s all about who has something going on which attract people.
    Priyanka is an actress, friend of Meghan And Joe Jonas is an ex Disney kid. The two have an age difference and people care about this kind of sensationalist stories (Hello my President).
    I’m living in France, never listen or cared about this two but I know a little bit what is going on around them...

    You have to be opportunist to survive in any industry. The problem here is the crap execution, not the subject!
    We had Paris Hilton on the cover of VP but the execution was perfect...

    I wonder why this thread hasn’t been taken down? Its the digital cover, not the official cover, its kinda causing confusion.

    It's all tea, no shade. As in spilling tea (truth) and not throwing shade. *cough*

    THANK YOU! All tea, all the shade. Some of you all are finally getting it. But no, let's discuss UK Vogue February 2018 for the millionth time. By the way, I'm pretty sure I said UK Vogue Feb '18 doesn't look as bad when you see this disaster. That bad doesn't mean good. Surely you all understand the distinction, right?

    I imagine Vogue India could produce something better.

    Why are the colors so dry? This could have been great but it’s just so depressing.

    "Digital covers" May have their own threads.
    it wasn't clear at first when this feature appeared on vogue's website whether it was a "digital cover" or a real magazine release. (I think Vogue was deliberately obfuscating this fact at first)
    Heart is now having HB release digital covers 4 times a year - this digital cover will compete with Hearst's (notice they are out at the same time)
    Priyanka Chopra also did a "digital cover" for allure earlier this year which also merited it own's thread.

    Just when you think this cover/situation couldn't be even more of a disaster, Ralph Lauren has already posted the RL gown on Instagram and is saying there will be a People Magazine cover out tomorrow about the wedding.

    So, surely it doesn't matter if the RL gown covers the print cover since we'll have already seen it on IG/in People.

    For a woman who has such high standards for her exclusive magazine, this is a disaster for Anna. It goes completely against this idea that Vogue is exclusive and got the exclusive. People Magazine has out scooped Vogue Magazine since they'll have all the information about the actual wedding. Does Anna know about this People cover?

    Wow, just wow.

    And despite what anyone may think, to the contrary I really haven't had an issue with Priyanka, until now. I'm really side eyeing her and her PR, this is the type of thing that can turn the public against you.

    Do you really have to have a Vogue cover and a People Magazine cover for your wedding, in 2018? You're not an A-lister, you don't have an Oscar, Grammy, Tony or Emmy to your name (not even a nomination) and your husband is not A-list either. You're not marrying George Clooney or Brad Pitt or Chris Pratt, or even Michael B. Jordan. You're marrying a Jonas brother. I've officially become turned off by her. This is entirely way too much.

    She's needs a reality check, she is not Meghan Markle. I can't!

    You are quite correct. She's not Meghan Markle. Meghan couldn't get arrested before she started dating Prince Harry. Not one major glossy cover behind her name, and she only got VF due to to her vulgar and Becky Sharp-style social climbing. At least Priyanka is established in her own right and her personal net wort speaks for itself.

    So, to be clear: we still don't have a cover image for the print edition of this issue?

    To be fair, the digital cover on Priyanka did not likely cost Vogue much in the way of production costs as it was sponsored (ie by pixel3)
    And vogue may have been forced by conde nast to put out a "digital cover" in order to compete with HB/Hearst.
    People probably paid a pretty penny for the dress cover exclusive.
    Priyanka's wedding itself was also sponsored by Amazon.

    There is no print edition. This is a digital feature.

    Oh come on! :lol: You know exactly what I meant with my comment.

    All the press and attention over Meghan's wedding was warranted. All the press over Priyanka's is most certainly not.

    Also, at least Meghan Markle's tv show lasted more than 3 seasons, meanwhile Priyanka had an entire tv show created for her as a star vehicle in today's current climate in which people are rooting for and desiring diverse leads on tv and in movies and she flopped hard because people rejected her and were not interested. Just like her music career flopped hard. And her big break out movie Baywatch flopped hard too.

    Any accomplishments Priyanka achieved in Bollywood don't matter in America. They just don't. We can see this from Priyanka's desperation to break through in America. If she were satisfied with her Bollywood career and what she achieved in India, don't you think she'd take the hint from all her flop projects and start transitioning back to Bollywood? But no, she's only ramping it up even more, in a last ditch attempt to establish some kind of status in Hollywood, as an actress or even a celebrity famous for being famous at this point.

    And in terms of social climbing, you don't get a Vogue cover and People cover with a flop tv, movie and music career because people like you. Priyanka is just as much (if not more so) a social climber cut from the same cloth as Meghan, Priyanka just doesn't have a place in history and a prince to show for it. She does have a Jonas brother, however. I'm sure Meghan's jealous :lol:

    At this point, I wonder if we'll get the print cover this week? It makes no sense for Anna and co. to keep it hidden now with this People Magazine nonsense. And which cover? One with Priyanka by herself? Or with Jonas? And if they do put the RL gown on the cover, that means it's just going to print, so does that mean it'll be on newsstands 2+ weeks after People's cover is off newsstands?

    I really wonder if Anna knows about this People cover. If I were Priyanka/her people, I wouldn't risk upsetting Anna for People. I really don't know what her people are thinking.
