    Wasn’t the out-of-the-shipping-create thing already done?…by Vogue US if I’m not mistaken too. Seriously? Also, those arms are scary!

      It was done with McQueen’s clothes too, but that editorial was much shorter, only 2 images.

    I want the pictures of Karen and Caroline blown up and put on my wall.

    God, McQueen, I miss you so.

    Um…I don’t want to be rude but…is Raquel taking steroids or something?

    Stella Tennant was also in this editorial, but im trying to figure out who to blame. they did this concept for his last collection when he pasted away.
    US Vogue is really bland.

    Leave it to American Vogue to take one of the greatest designers of all time, one of the most innovative photographers of all time, and some of the most energetic models of all time and give us a bland, lifeless series of photos.

    Wow, I don’t understand why all of the people who bash on Vogue US constantly continue to whine and moan about it. Obviously, if it says Vogue US on the title link, avoid it and save everyone your obnoxious complaints.

    Anyway, this editorial was beautiful. Where are the other ones though? Karlie, Stella, and Karen were also in it…

      you may have to get used to something if you are living in this world: WE ALL DO NOT SHARE YOUR OPINION.

      we are going to bash us vogue and complain about it for as long as us vogue gives us bland, mediocre and cheesy editorials.

      so GET USED TO THE BASHING JAIME. IT AIN’T GOING AWAY JUST CAUSE YOU DON’T LIKE IT.

        Hah oh wow, how mature! “Wah wah wah!! Vogue US sucks wah wah wah!!!” You obviously have issues if you continue to look at these editorials if you have don’t like them. It’s like eating onions when you don’t like onions just to complain about the taste. Stop being such an idiot and grow up, you dumb ass.

    The Alexander McQueen archive is a beautiful thing and the models are stunning, but American Vogue just takes it all and ruins it…… What a waste.
