    Can someone get me some Vaseline or moisturiser!?! And to the dirty minded-ones, I don't mean it as a sexual innuendo. His skin just looks so....dry.

    A very unflattering image, especially considering the guy doesn't appear on loads of covers. Guess he's still trying hard to make Prada cool. Art direction doesn't work because it fades in the anokak.

    Fail!

    The second cover is better, but also is a non-event. Both are mediocre.
    The first one is... Can I just ask how much Prada paid to actually make that Prada logo appear on the cover?

    Frank looks like he wants to take a giant dookie and Rosalia is a dead corpse the cops took a photo of on-site

    I Like both covers, maybe it's because of the New old layout.

    I like how they didn't try to make them look pretty and perfect. That's something I miss. I'm sick of the IG aesthetics and extreme Photoshop we've been getting lately, especially with Luigi & Lango.

    Both covers are dreadful, and I'll never understand fashions fascination with Frank Ocean. He's not remotely interesting, and average from head to toe. Also, doesn't Rosalia have a neck?

    Yup...just as I expected, the slightly tinkered with masthead is the only thing refreshing about the revamp...same sh*t, different editor.

    I don't understand why Katie still works at this magazine at all. What does she even get out of working at it when every inch of relevance has been squeezed out it? And now it's not longer on Conde's roster.

    Oh, and I'm mad they jacked up Frank like that, and by the looks of it didn't even give him a stylist to work with.

    I actually hate that they brought the old logo back. It looks dated.

    Rosalia looks unrecognizable. Frank looks...bad.

    Sara does not have what it takes to bring this magazine back.

    I think it's a good decision they brought the old logo, it has some classic/nostaligic vibe from when W was good. (Also the previous logo was weak and irrelevant from the moment it started – with the uninispired and pretentious Tonchi).

    Bad thing is that they can't match the logo with relevant content. Fashion right now seems to be on the brink of saturation and bad taste. All those greedy brands like Prada, Vuitton etc, are getting uglier and annoying by the minute.

    Oddly, I like the second cover. It catches my attention. There is something haunting and quite beautiful.

    Frank's cover styled by himself is just a straight-to-the-trash cover.

    Rosalía has a tricky face to photograph (long and wide) and that angle doesn't flatter her, you can tell Willy is not used to photograph woman with fat on their face. I like the old new logo in pink and the simplicity of the picture but I'm not here for it.

    I agree with Benn that Frank's skin looks as dry as sandpaper, I'm very annoyed by how overhyped he still is: the campaign for his last album would have you believed he's the lovechild of 2Pac and Paul McCartney. I hope he doesn't have another collection of lo-fi snoozefests to drop on us because I'm not ready to live through that again. Fashion's fascination with him is because he's gay and that's the end of it.
