    No. It's for V, Visionaire's less expensive sibling publication.

    I'm still really wowed by this cover choice. I think, if I may be so bold, that V represents everything that is right with fashion today. Putting a black celebrity on the cover of a major September issue is a huge step in the right direction. V may not be InStyle or Vogue, but I still think this is a big shocker for many in the publishing/fashion industry.

    I'm still fuming over the snub that Janet Jackson got from US Bazaar in February. They put Gisele on that issue's cover, after using celebrities almost exclusively for the year preceding that, then gave Ms. Jackson a paltry, yet still stunning, spread somewhere in the middle of editorials. My point is, she could certainly have pulled off a cover of Bazaar--especially since the Van Lamzweerde/Matadin pictures of her were so perfect--but the powers that be decided that though they were desperate for the power of a celebrity, they weren't desperate enough to use a black actress/artist. Rather sad.

    Beyonce is overrated. Why is she becoming so popular? I even think Kelly Rowland is so much better in the way she isn't media-hungry and is simpler. Train on the track is much better than Crazy in Love.

    As for the cover, FROU FROU! :yuk:

    I like it. :shock: I knew it was her when I saw it. She doesn't bother me like most celebs/singers, but I still don't want to see her on covers. :neutral:

    You are quite bold :flower: . I think V started out incredibly well, yet it's turning into another mainstream publication. I'm sorry, but how long can I hear about LV and DG and Jacobs in every damn issue of it? I'm also disappointed about them not bringing outside talent and freelancers in. Tabitha, Mario, Tabitha, Mario, my head is spinning :wacko: I have yet to make up my mind about Vmen, but the whole thing seems just like a high school clique.

    I like Gan's book "Where will we meet next" though...

    That post was from a year ago, dear faust. A year later, I think V is going quite downhill still. My opinion changes everyday though. The new Alicia Keys issue is such a snoozer, though it does feature some nice looks outside of the usual LV, Dolce, etc.
