Steven Meisel Brings the Holiday Spirit Earlier than Expected to Vogue Italia’s November Cover (Forum Buzz)

Eek! In the Cover Rumor Thread we had our hearts set on Gemma Ward fronting the next issue of Vogue Italia. Oh well, I guess we can’t complain about another appearance from Carolyn Murphy, who always delivers the goods. Vogue Italia‘s November cover surfaced earlier today and it stars the American model photographed by Steven Meisel. Murphy poses wearing Miu Miu with her hand on her head, suggesting she’s had enough of the holiday spirit — already!

Wolkfolk kicked off the discussion to a good start and wrote, “Completely unexpected to see Carolyn but what a wonderful surprise!! The cover is freaking amazing.”

“It’s a good cover! I love the star sequins that are scattered and placed on her arm, and the lighting is beautiful too,” agreed IsabelMarantBoy.

Also to admire Carolyn’s latest work is Ortemis who simply wrote the word “captivating” inside the thread.

Srdjan seems impressed too and posts, “I never buy Italian Vogue, but I might get it this time! I love Carolyn and this is definitely alluring! It has Vogue Italia edginess but not too much, just the way I like it.”

Yet not everyone’s on board. “Holiday Allure? What exactly displays this feeling here? she looks dead!!! One of these dead by strangulation cases… eyes open… mouth slightly open… seriously! I like Carolyn’s work in general but not this… in essence, I don’t dislike the image but it simply doesn’t work in conjunction with ‘Holiday Allure’? VI is the most pretentious magazine at the moment! Their concepts almost never translate into their imagery…” comments a very disappointed KissMiss.

Oxymore shares the same sentiments: “Nice cover but, ‘Holiday Allure’ in November?”
