“Ohh… I wonder who she is?” LizzyF shared.
“Wow. Simply wow,” ohmycolin wrote. “This is stunning and we can’t even see the model’s face! Trust Carine to bring this hat out of the bag for the [one-year anniversary issue].”
“I see a Margiela mask, Givenchy earrings, but who designed that glittering crown?” asked Luxx. “This is an inspirational image, take it out of the fashion context and it would still be very compelling and unique. It makes you ask a lot of questions – namely who is the person behind the mask, but that is almost inconsequential. Excellent work by Carine and her team as per usual.”
YoninahAliza posted, “It is a very clever cover, I love that it has a hint of mystery about it while making a statement. It's the sort of compelling cover that would make you want to pick it up at the newsstand.”
We’re all clearly hooked on Carine’s lure here. More, please.
UPDATE: Maybe we don't want more after all?
It turns out, Kim Kardashian is the cover girl we were all fawning over. Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy art directed the shoot while Kim was in the final stages of her pregnancy and Karl Lagerfeld was on hand as photographer.
Forum members are not amused. But, confession: I kind of dig it.
