Kati Nescher Covers Kristina O’Neill’s Debut Issue of WSJ. Magazine (Forum Buzz)

WSJ. March 2013 - Katie Nescher photographed by Mikael Jansson

If ever there was a cover that signifies a fresh start or rebirth of a publication, it’s Kristina O’Neill’s debut cover as Editor-in-Chief of WSJ magazine. Featuring a redesigned logo, the cover photo by Mikael Jansson is awash in bright white light, giving model Kati Nescher a luminescent glow. The caption of “Pure Elegance” feels especially fitting.

“So pure! One of the most beautiful covers I've ever seen! Gorgeous!!!” TashaRosa exclaimed.

Marc10 posted, “Seriously stunning picture, so captivating.”

The cover is striking, straightforward and fresh – which are doubtless all things O’Neill wants this magazine to be in every way. Though she’s a veteran of the magazine industry (coming off of 12 years at Harper's Bazaar), she’s now in a position where she’s taking on a publication in its infancy and she can mold it into its long-term form.

Whatever she’s doing so far seems to be working. The cover alone makes me want to crack open this issue and see what she’s got in store for us. Well done.
