Steven Meisel.
Laura Kampman.
Karl Templer.

An intriguing take on elegance from Vogue Italia and perhaps a knowing commentary on the line between fantasy and reality, constantly being pushed in fashion imagery. Laura looks world’s different from her rocker-chic turn in the Balenciaga campaign, makeup by Pat McGrath and hair by Guido Palau, have a way of transforming a girl.

    So the word is Laura has gone exclusive with Meisel. Good for her!! I like this cover. There’s such an allure. Something about it made me stare for a while (which is a good thing), then the “guessing game” ensued’. Lara looks divine.

    Everyone was about debating on whether it was Laura or Daria.

    Great start for 2012 covers. Meisel, Vogue Italia & Laura K set the bar high .. LOVE THIS.

    Laura looks amazing. Yes she has a 6 month Meiselexclusive but that should be over in a few months. Hopefully she’ll last after that.

    Best Italian Vogue cover in a long time! Laura looks unbelievably so different from her Balenciaga. From this I would say she is definitely looking at a long career at the top. No question this girl is a star. Love, love, love!

    laura’s personality inspires me. or her blog anyway.

    also, this may be a stretch but this elegant collage image reminds me of faye dunaway’s montage sequences in “puzzle of a downfall child”…

    Im sorry but i dont get whats great about her. I dont see anything special apart from being a favorite to Meisel. I don’t even like her in the runway and this cover is horrible. i wish we could see a different thing from her, maybe from another photographer…

    Am I the only one to think it’s rather bland?
