I wish this image was chosen for the cover but yet again W magazine US doesn't impress me anymore, the editorial isn't interesting at all and the actual cover is bland it's like a test-shot! Whyyyyyyyy? lol
**please do not quote images**
^ It was probably intended for the cover, as it doesn't fit into the editorial, but I actually prefer the cover they choose. Jon looks way sexier in it, and it's a great shot of Rebecca, love her freckles shining through.
I personally love the vibe of the photoshoot, the diner, the colors. Quite stunning. Doesn't hurt that I adore them both I suppose. And the styling definitely could have been better.
The editorial's styling is really bad... But I like how natural and touchable the cover looks
The cover is so clean...and I like how relaxed they look together. The editorial is standard Goldberg fare though...not that interesting IMO.
I'm not sure how to react to a W cover that isn't overly photoshopped anymore.
i think the cover is nice, simple, natural.. it's not bad at all
one side is full of text and one side is just W and space-y
First, I'm very excited to see Stefano's first issue where he had a big amount of control.
Second, I love Rebecca and Jon--the interview excerpt with these two is great, very witty and funny.
I don't know what W's identity is, is it fashion or celebrity / lifestyle? As a celebrity / lifestyle cover and ed, it is quite good, as a fashion editorial, it is lacking for the reasons others have noted - the styling. Regardless, I would like to see more.
I have no idea who these people are. And that's why i like it. Also, i love how simple and honest it is.
Looks like less emphasis on fashion:
I like the stark simplicity of this cover and the almost minimal photshopping. The fact that this isn't Cameron Diaz or some overused celebrity is refreshing too.
Yummy! Jon Hamm is beyond delish...so easy on the eyes!

Wow, I've never seen Rebecca Hall look that good and that's not even just because she has Don Draper wrapped around her.
They've made him look quite young and boyish, I don't know if it suits him.
There is nothing remotely interesting about the cover. The only decent thing that excites me, is Frida Gianni - which I've probably read a thousand times.
I hold my hands up to not knowing who Rebecca Hall or Jon Hamm are. I guess I'll have to read up on them both.
How lackluster is that cover! At least the editorial has a cool vibe, but i cant possibly see how anyone would think this would be an appealing cover that will sell. Hopefully the content is good (McLellan preview seems nice), and this whole "less focus on fashion" nonsense makes me lose all hope for W that i had (no matter how little).
