We’re forever receiving tidbits via our popular Cover Rumor Thread and with each and every rumor, the wait for the final result to surface feels like an eternity. Thankfully for us die-hard Nicole Kidman fans, U.S. Vogue‘s August 2015 cover dropped over the weekend, generating mixed feedback on the forums. The Aussie actress, who’s promoting Queen of the Desert, was photographed by Patrick Demarchelier for the cover image while Peter Lindbergh captured Nicole’s cinematic feature. On the cover, Nicole wears a backless Marc Jacobs dress and serves up some major hair envy.

“I have such a soft spot for Nicole, it’s a great cover shot. The angle is perfect!” raved Miss Dalloway, getting us off on a high note.
“It’s classic Nicole and I love it! Much better than her recent ELLE cover,” [Piece Of Me] added in agreement.
Yet the cover failed to impress everyone else. “God this magazine is boring! Yes, Nicole looks nice, but the pose is imperfect. I can’t stand their fonts, Marie Claire is more exciting,” Srdjan discredited.
JennaaMonroe wasn’t projecting much love, either, writing, “Yawn, boring. It has a lovely feel to it but it’s quite bland and I feel like I’ve seen it a thousand times.”
“Always lovely to see Nicole, but the cover isn’t exciting at all, again the usual stuff,” echoed Nymphaea.
Bertrando3 was quick to point out some flaws, too. “This is VERY boring indeed. She looks sad and tired and the cover reads ‘happier than ever’ — good one! The pose is the same as Sandra Bullock indeed and wearing the same brand…” he ranted.
