Well finally something with a bit of a sex appeal, but not going too far like GC!!
I approve this, better fonts and it would be more striking!
Love this. He looks great, too.
So if it's not close enough that you see people's pores, then it's so far away you hardly recognise the who's on the cover. It's a passable image. I don't get the guy and the cult around him though. Would need to flip through this first because based on the image and coverlines, it's not enough to warrant a purchase.
Oh this is great. Everything works for me here; hopefully the new Vanity Fair has found it's rhythm.
I really liked the layout design on last month's cover, and I love it here. They were missing the directional images Graydon produced in his time, but they've nailed it here for me. It's a contemporary, fresh take on a celebrity portrait, compared to the gaudy camp of the VF of old. I enjoyed that over the top Hollywood glamour, but I think this is a lovely hybrid of today's pared down aesthetic and the more concept driven cover images we're used to from this magazine.
I like this! My michael looks goood!
The headlines remind of the GC days.
The editor's debut issue had a stunning shot of Jennifer Lawrence on the front, but it feels like it's been downhill since that first cover.
So while this certainly looks interesting, I've learned not to judge a magazine by its cover, and I don't mean that in a good way.
Same story with UK Vogue - what a great shot of Adwoa on that December issue, but almost a year later, where have all the fireworks gone? Or of more interest to myself, where's Meisel gone?
What is the fixation of this magazine on showing men on their cover with half the body out of the water? They did it with Chris Pratt in February last year (and it's much better than this)
Plus: that retro masthead looks ugly
There’s need for it to be so zoomed out. Aside from that this is welcome return to Graydon’s Type of covers. They actually tried to make an interesting image.
I really like this
Very attractive cover! And Michael too.
Good, although the image itself is not that strong, at least they chose an angle where you don't see his weird chin.
Wow, this is so zoomed out.
He's really photogenic but I've never seen a really good picture of him.
He looks peeved to me, and a fully clothed celebrity in the pool is sooo cliché.

Boring image.That font is hideous too
This is the most Vanity Fair-esque cover we've had in months, and easily my favorite cover since Radhika Jones took over the magazine. I'm a fan of the fonts here too and I like how retro the cover feels. A thumbs up from me!
I got my subscription copy about two weeks ago, and I still haven't bothered opening the bag, I've become that disinterested in what this magazine is offering.
