    You know what? I felt completely underwhelmed upon first look but have fallen in love with this overnight. Nicole Kidman photographed by I&V feels perfectly celebratory for an anniversary issue and I can appreciate how the cover image isn't just another polished and over-airbrushed photograph of Kidman.

    And despite the hair attempting to steal focus, Nicole is instantly recognizable in the shot. No wonder there's zero mention in the cover text - they really didn't need to shout it out. Perhaps Nicole's face could've been more centered in the cover, and moved up a tad closer to the masthead?

    This cover is garbage. Nicole looks good. The photo does not. Her head is floating.

    Nicole's style can be so chic, timeless yet VOGUE Oz vomits up a covered up face, hair that's permed on one side, straight on the other. And no fashion whatsoever. I love a lioness mane but this ain't it!

    And it's certainly not worthy of it's 'Collectors Edition' moniker. The cover already looks dated. With so many iconic, indisputably breath-taking, memorable fashion image collaborations Kidman has been apart of, this is definitely a low point rather than a pinnacle fashion moment. Perhaps the editorial will live up to their "art of image making" claim but I'm not holding my breath!

    At first I thought, "what a mess", but's it grown on me. The hair's a bit too much, but overall I love the close-up, styling, use of color and lighting. Plus I adore Nicole Kidman.

    both covers are freaking AWFUL ahahaha OMG Howwww in the world has Nicole agreed to have these published??? A star of her ranking surely has a right to accept or refuse to have pics like these used on covers like Beyoncé did with US Vogue.

    Centenera should be just a street style star and nothing else. I never understood how she got a career.

    Hate the hair in her ed. Totally ruins it.

    The hair is giving me Battlefield Earth vibes.

    Everything about it is tragic. I tried hard to see what some of you guys loved about it...I tried hard and waited and cameback to see why I wasn’t getting it...

    A trainwreck...
    Everything about it looks amateur...Even the photoshopping.
    And the covers looks like cheap fanmade covers.

    By having a decent style...

    Agreed about the hair. It totally ruins what could have been a decent cover + ed. Such a shame as Nicole is gorgeous and so talented.
