    Even Freja can't save this. What has this magazine turned into?

    What even is the concept here?!
    Maybe Farneti and co should stop trying so hard to have a "theme" or "concept" each month and actually focus on producing good pictures first...

    The only issues that I've liked are those shot by M&M. Their covers were so so but the edits were very nice. Just keep them close.

    It looks old. Everything about it is outdated. The hair, the makeup, the set, and worst of all the styling. :yuk: We've reached the dark period of this magazine. It's going to need a complete rebirth if it's going survive the next 5-10 years.

    While I actually like the story as an editorial, must say the composition need some attention. And way too many props, which distracts from Freja and what she's wearing. Also, why are the delivery men taking centre stage in some of the pics? I get that it must be Green's creative insistence, but still, it's not like they're so exceptionally crucial to the story as a whole. A decent art director and ultimate editor would've noticed this. This man has no business editing such an important fashion magazine. Go back to GQ where you belong!

    The problem with Vogue Italia is that...with each issue, one can’t help but imagine what the results would have been if the same shoot concept, casting, styling and production had been handled by Meisel.

    This feels more like a busy ad campaign than an editorial to me. I want to like it, but there is something too artificial in it for me to appreciate it.

    That's exactly my thought when I looked at the ed. And you know what? Because they try so hard to deliver a Vogue that Meisel and Franca built but without having any of these two. They should just move on.

    I’m almost afraid to admit it, but I quite like the editorial.

    I like the concept of the editorial, but the execution of it seems like... cheap plywood.

    And if you're going to have male models to the fore in some of the shots, make them worth looking at! Who buys Vogue Italia for shots of people dressed as minimum wage workmen?

    So many boxes, it could be the ad for Office Depot. What I miss about Meisel is his ability to give different angles, perspectives... What's the point of so many photos from just front view? Fashion photography is truly dead.

    Male models are Franky Cammarata, Vitor Melo, Dilon Eyre, Francois Angoston, Mitchell Slaggert, and Trevor Signorino

    I absolutely hate when magazines use male models as useless props.
    You put Trevor Signorino in a handyman suit, just so he can move boxes??
    He should be naked, and alone. Flush all the rest, including Freja.

    Freja's presence is surprisingly underwhelming. Her postures and facial expressions are not inviting. I won't mention the hairstyle, it's not her fault. And the editorial theme is so ditzy - rich house owner and her contractors? The fashion industry is porn obsessed.
    The new VI will never be the old VI.

    I don't get why they keep doing the multicover trash, they are all hideous

    Oh Ethan, you are so much more that this (and nothing like this). I would never guess who shot this. Not a fan.

    Perhaps to please the brands used for the covers? Otherwise I'm also at a loss as to why those three nearly identical shots deserve separate covers.

    Also no shade to Freja but she has the same expression in all three covers. Like she's surprised you'd come into her her room while she's packing.
