More large-love.

It’s not quite “Love” at first sight for me but definitely commendable and particularly promising considering this is, after all, a Condé Nast cover. As Doyle noted Beth Ditto butt-naked has previously served as cover material (i’m looking at you NME) and so this could be deemed a tad unimaginative for a debut. Still, the colour palette – so reminiscent of Pop’s high-voltage sweetness – seems to redeem the mistake. Also, a demure downward glance seems to translate to cover much better than an overtly suggestive smirk…

    ok on 2nd look, not quite mint green, but love the contrast with the pink nonetheless 😀

    FF: isn’t it sublime? i hope the art direction maintains such a high standard…FPOK: true. even the most quality magazine covers do tend towards the hyperbolic. agree on the liking of the photo!/Male Mode.
