Celebrity Power At Play; Or Did Klein Out Due Meisel?

1 I must admit that I'm a bit surprised the fashion blogsphere went more crazy over Rihanna's supplement cover, shot by Steven Klein, for Vogue Italia Sept 09, then the main cover, featuring Sasha Pivovarova & Ash Stymest (who looks a bit dorky here), shot by Steven Meisel!

Is the celebrity factor at play here, or has Steven Klein really outdone Steven Meisel in this round.

Now that I had the time to digest both, since the morning time, I have to admit that Rihanna's is a damn powerful cover. But I'm curious to hear your feedback!

The Rihanna cover is 10 times better than the main cover, anyone can see that. Its real shame that such an amazing cover comes in second to a cover that's truly just subpar in comparison.

what's so great about a bucket of water against a tile wall? Meisel's is classy, fun to look at , and pleasing to the eye.

Meisel runs in style and originality. Klein went obvious and typical. Meisel all the way. sorry.


I say it had to be a mix of the two factors, the cover is hard to focus, heaven with Sasha on it... As for the supplement, i wasnt feeling a celeb on it , but i must admit that it is a great shot. Franca Sozzani never fails for me in any case.


I'm with you John. While the Meisel cover is damn good and original, the Klein one is more eye-catching and captivating, and not because it's a celeb like Rihanna. Since the 'job' of the cover is to 'sell' the magazine, I think the Klein cover would be better of as the main cover, while artistic content can be inside.
