Change isn’t always for the better and the adjustments over at Vanity Fair haven’t exactly been well-received on our forums. The publication’s newly installed EIC, Radhika Jones, got mixed reviews for her first issue starring Jennifer Lawrence in March and her follow-up with Lena Waithe was largely forgettable. The newest issue for May 2018 is getting a lot of attention, though — but for all the wrong reasons. Jumping on the bandwagon and media frenzy that is the upcoming British Royal Wedding, Jones gives up Vanity Fair‘s latest to none other than Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (who covered the magazine solo back in October).
Much to the dismay of our forum members, the cover photo isn’t exactly original. “Is this a paparazzi shot? Are we really doing this?” asked a dumbfounded dodencebt the second the cover came to light.
“Whoa, this is awful and not even well done! Hello magazine has better pap covers than this!” Miss Dalloway declared.
