    I wonder how it could've look like if they hadn't turn that sepia Retrica filter on

    Lol @ Retrica! I wonder if that app still exists... no, but really - whoever retouched this cover did MUCH more than they needed to with these two beautiful girls. Anok looks purple.

    Speaking of, did Estee Lauder pay for this?

    I was looking forward to that cover, but hey just had to add this atrocious filter! I wonder who's to blame: Nick Knight or the editor?

    First Teller, now Nick Knight. Is Vogue Japan on a mission to erase the style of these photographers on their covers? Why bother booking them if you're really after an Alexi Lubomirski-style shot?

    :lol::lol::lol:

    And yes, Armani! I'm convinced they've tried to appease Estee Lauder with this cover. But the filter and the masthead, oh God.

    What a disappointment! I expected so much by this duo and photographer. Vogue Japan really makes any photographer's signature style void. No wonder why their best covers are by Luigi and Iango whose signature style is being generic and making models look like Brigitte Bardot. :doh:

    The cover is shot by Nick Knight and people are surprised it’s airbrushed?

    Although it does indeed look like a beauty campaign, it is undeniably stunning.

    Despite the filter and all of the airbrushing, I like the cover. Both models look stunning and it works for VJ. I do wish they kept the crisp original colors with a white backdrop, probably would've looked better - I wonder if they used the filter through out the whole editorial? Hope not. I'd definitely buy it if they sold it here, but it doesn't excite me enough to order online.

    This is a rather gorgeous cover despite the over the top color filter.

    So it turns out that the retrica filter was indeed the editor's choice. Nick's original version looks far better

    I love how Nick posted his version and not the finished cover.

    I love the final picture by Nick Night but I´m not mad at the final cover with the purple filter, it´s new and surprising. The girls look WOW :flower:

    A vast improvement from last month's unmemorable cover! And despite the horrid filter, you really cannot go wrong with a closeup of two beautiful models and I can appreciate the cover just for that alone.

    He posted both actually...there's the two versions on his post...

    And yes the filter was unnecessary

    The girls look stunning but unfortunately it looks more like a CVS beauty ad

    Even with the unnecessary filter, this is beautiful.
    The original photo is better, but, I'm a sucker for a good beauty shot.
