    I have to say it: the cover, the concept, the cast... A TOTAL SERVE.

    this is a pure buffoonery, this is the fashion seen grotesque through memes on reddit, i don't think that this is the effect they tried to achieve, i love binx but all those terrible clown clothes do not adorn her, plus standing next to each other with Precious lee don't compliment any of them, looks just like a mockery. Getting Meghan out of the gramma's trunk is something we expected from Meisel/Franca Vogue Italia era, but it doesn't work here and age made her look even more Frankenstein than ever before...
    That looks like a cheap copy of classical fashion stories by vogue italia circa 1960s executed by some b-list publication...

    Binx looks so great (and even Meghan too), but that cover? Pass.

    Looking through this for a couple of times now, so I'd come up with a more or less solid opinion about this.

    Well, certainly unexpected, that is a plus. Binx + Meghan is another plus, you cannot go bad with Meghan Collison, I mean, one of THE Meisel muses, you just cannot screw her up. The clothes (!) are nice, that is another plus. The glamour is good as well. The sound is catchy and the videos are quite engaging to watch, I actually enjoyed them.

    And now... Binx looks like a drag queen in some cases. Video editing is catchy, but they could've worked with some more of a concept and beauty of the models, I get that it is VI and all, but some effect would be nice. This is coming from the fact that you have to live up to totally stellar videos that Gordon Von Steiner filmed for Meisel editorials. Zero concept, another minus. I mean, ZERO. Meisel studio shots always have concept, at least a theme, but what is this?

    Is this catalogue-inspired? If so, this is bad. Because that 'catalogue' was done much, much better by Steven himself with a great video and a stellar cast of Karlie, Joan, Natasha, and etc.

    Is this just a studio shoot? Still bad, and I explained above why.

    Overall? A pass. Could've been stellar in right hands.

    Well Meghan certainly shows what is the difference about modeling and simple posing.
    Binx is not a versatile model and that is okay She can produce some magnificent photos but this is really out of her genre
    I feel bad for the other girl why is she even there

    The further dumbing down of fashion and frumpying of models to resemble commoners continues on. This is all such a mockery of what VI once was and a parody of HF. When even a gorgeous woman and HF designs look this mid-range department-store mediocre, VI has finally reached the very bottom of the bottom of the barrel now. This is even more insulting than the previous gimmicks this joker hustled.

    Agreed. It needed Anna Cleveland!

    I love the 90s vibes though Binx energy is lacking one needs to bring their inner Linda Evangelista to work for such styling. Love the cover and happy that they are bringing back fashion!

    I only love the slingback shoes on the cover.

    :D Details!
    I like the cover minus the heart illustration, but I dislike the entire editorial.
    The posing looks amateur.

    I feel like everyone is liking this cover because Vogue Italia extremely lowered their standards.
    For me it’s very basic when we compare it with any issue under Franca. I’m happy for Binx but i feel like someone else would bring much more life to this cover.

    Some great previews, fantastic styling. Meghan is definitely blowing everyone else out of the water. I couldn't care less about the actual cover though, it's still gimmicky while the accompanying editorial doesn't seem to be.

    Atrocious Styling! Luckily the photograph makes up for it. With all the fringe for fall you would think they would use it in a moving shot. Louis Vuitton pays the bills so that explains the frumpy outfit.

    Finally something good and fashionable in Vogue Italia! But I'm under no illusions: I believe this is a good exception in a sea of senseless and pretentious garbage. You know what they say.. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

    Why isn't Binx's name in the title?

    Is this a multi-girl issue?

    I thought the same. They should change the name of the thread
