    I'd take this over their Aug and Sept covers.

    I get the idea behind it - but for the cover, I wish they'd gone for the full-on face, because, yes, this looks like a child-clown to me, forced to dress up. It's like seeing a mild psychological breakdown performed through the medium of make-up.

    I think I would have liked it a lot more if it weren't for the multicolored masthead.. like, why? It makes it look like a children's magazine.

    I find it badly executed. Extremely disappointed to see Kaia for a second time on a VP cover this year.

    This cover does nothing for me. I wish magazines and photographers would take risk in changing a model's look.

    It's not working for me, she looks like an ordinary child here to me, albeit a pretty one, ordinary as opposed to a young Brooke Shields or Milla Jovovich for instance or what we want or expect to see on a Vogue cover. When eyes are a little too close together closeups aren't flattering in general, especially from that angle.

    Yes, a child dressed up as a clown, therefore can't take this serious and even then it isn't funny.

    And there is such a clash between the headline "Kaia A Star is Born" and the clownesque image. Where is the star? I don't see much star quality on that image.

    hmm... not a favorite image for a cover but I´m sure that the editorial will be better.

    This might have been an interesting image if the model was a woman, with a stronger face.
    Instead it comes across as a bad Vogue Bambini Halloween outtake from the 80's.
    It is for October, so maybe that's what they were going for.

    This feels very gimmicky and the multi-coloured masthead isn't helping. I think it's high time Vogue Paris got a new EIC.

    Oh boy, this cover is the result of so many bad choices.

    This looks like something Dazed would produce, not Vogue Paris. I do think it has the potential to be a good cover without the make-up and, obviously the nose because the dress itself evokes a refreshing sense of festivity. Someone should tell Alt that "fun" doesn't always have to be on the nose.~
