It’s fair to say that V Magazine has lost its flair over recent months, having managed to make Britney Spears look unrecognizable and the ever-gorgeous Charlize Theron look lifeless on the cover of its last offering. But now the publication seems back in full form with its Fall Preview 2016 edition featuring the stars of the highly-anticipated The Neon Demon. Steven Klein captured Elle Fanning, Bella Heathcote and Abbey Lee Kershaw, who all manage to deliver the goods.
Forum members were quick to applaud V Magazine‘s efforts. “This is the V that I love! That first cover is absolutely amazing. One of the most inspired covers I’ve seen not only from them, but everywhere. Stunning,” applauded MON.
“This is indeed spectacular, and creates just the right amount of anticipation! Just wished Klein expanded a bit more with the direction, but all three girls killed it here. Very impressed with Elle and Bella, holding their own next to Abbey,” Benn98 added in amazement.
Forum member dcmaike felt the same way, sharing, “This looks really promising! Especially Abbey, who looks stunning on the cover.”
“I love this! And Abbey is simply stunning,” echoed apple.
In agreement over how terrific Abbey photographed was Elite13: “My eyes go straight to Abbey but I’m impressed with Bella and Elle. I love the colours. It’s very high fashion.”
“Thank god for Steven Klein,” declared a more than impressed Oxymore.
Sharing the same sentiments was WeberFanatic: “Even though this is classic Klein from the lighting, the sex appeal, the usage of knives these sets of photos feel refreshing. Abbey Lee looks stunning as ever and I enjoy the fact Bella and Elle don’t stick out as sore thumbs but blend within Klein’s often violent environment.”
