    On website, they stated that "Ida (this is how the protagonist of the cover was baptized) and the other eight girls of the cover service were in fact created digitally, the result of the imagination of photographers who played to give body and face to the idea of abstract yet totally plausible beauty."

    I can hear Emmanuelle laughing from Paris to Buenos Aires.

    Agreed! And then it's not even executed properly. If at least he commissioned a confident team to evolve the contrived and juvenile faffle he's coughing up on that Instagram post and expand on it fully, then one could stomach it. But at this stage I just want him to accept that he can NEVER recreate Franca's social commentary-driven covers because he just doesn't have the vision, the wit nor the talent. He's a GQ guy, through and through.

    The mere fact that he thinks that this CGI creation is an extension of reality when in actual fact 80% of models always looked like that shows how out of touch he is when it comes to the women's arm of the fashion industry.

    :lol::lol::lol: You can't make it up!

    IMAGINE BEING THAT POOR MODEL: "You´ll be on Vogue Italia by Mert and Marcus but, you'll never be able to share your achievement because we're gonna change your face".

    If only Farneti could just shut up, he's making it worse. I wonder who buys those pretentious anecdotes on every month's cover.

    What baffles me the most is that unlike Franca Farneti lacks witty approach to the whole social topic area. Unfortunately, among all Vogue editors, apparently only Franca actually had it at all. I will pray that VP and Vogue US will do what they do, it is not the best, but not nearly as offensive as all the other “artsy” Vogues.

    Why the casting credit of not only one CD but two different ones?

    Well, the concept is unique but it's too gimmicky for my preference. Vogue Italia's January issue was probably a bestseller that's why they're doing strange concepts to top it. Can Town and Country shade this one too?

    I like the cover but the concept is so weird why can’t Farneti just do a normal fashion cover with models and not fake people and without making it so pretentious and trying to make it some social justice thing! Also I am confused how is that not a real person if they were shot by mert and Marcus, there were hair stylists and makeup artists?? So weird

    Oh my god he really thinks he's all that, doesn't he? This poet, this artist or whatever the cr*p he's trying to be? How delusional can you be??

    The editorial previews look quite beautiful, but I'm not convinced that these are completely CGI characters, which kind of ruins the whole point? I don't know. I hate this magazine.

    Why does every issue have to have a gimmick? Why can it not just uphold whatever the Vogue values are rather than trying to save the planet via ever more excruciating concepts!

    '...This entire issue looks at the fine line that divides reality and fiction in our age.” Emanuele Farneti'

    Me too.

    Could've been worse. In the famous words of Comrade Dyatlov, not great, not terrible.
