Natalia Vodianova and Luke Grimes. Ph: Mario Testino for V Magazine #58 (from originalsin via tFS).

  1. Amazing cover!! Natalia looks so gorgeous! The “V” reminds me neons from night clubs at Augusta Street in São Paulo, Brazil.

  2. Natalia Vodianova is surprisingly very natural on the new V cover. She looks more like she does in her candids and I like it. Normally, she’s very airbrushed and photoshopped for her advertisement work and editorials.

    R.I.P. Luis Fernandes.

  3. I love the colours of this cover.
    And Natalia always reminds me a bit of my aunt. But her hair… I don’t like it either.

  4. Ken & barby (with a new hair cut) are back!! Natalia is a real doll & Luke is so HOT…what a charming “duo”!

  5. I don’t like the cover, at all.

    It looks slapdash, Natalia looks unkept, and why (an unknown) Luke Grimes?

  6. to C-la-Créative: you have an aunt that looks like natalia??? i love her, strange hair though. but it’s defintely something that we hadnt expected. so thumbs up.


    Watch it if you haven’t already.

    I would never wear his clothes but the whole time I was watching the promo I thought “Thank God we have art like this in the world”.

  8. i lovee the cover no like much the hair of Natalia but the color are fantastic good woork Testino

  9. wish magazine is not a new magazine only because now is aline on the cover. you never noticed it before but they have already lots of issues

  10. Francy,

    I have seen the other Wish covers before. It is fairly new in the grand scheme of things.. I look at the big picture.. It’s definitely new compared to Vogue Brasil!


  11. such a shame, the hair. L-O-V-E the pink and blue/green but im sorry, the hair is horrendous!! what were they thinking? you were right Homotography, completely “just off the beach” hair.
