Janet Jackson Ph. Inez Lamweerde and Vinoodh Matadin
Whatever for that Superbowl Scandal. Janet Jackson claims her crown as latter day icon on the sweet and playful new V cover (set to hit stands March 15) that skillfully touts her forthcoming new album. Also highlighting the bumper issue is a lush 12 page floral extravaganza featuring Polina/Take 2 as shot by Solve Sunsbo. Then there is a steamy Diana Dondoe lensed by Mario Sorrenti and a loose and off-the-cuff layout featuring Liya as shot by Terry Richardson. Also of great inspiration is a young photograper compilation titled Stars and Stripes. If ever there was a must-buy V, this sure is the one.
