    I love Raquel, but her facial expressions are really awkward in these photos. I know its intentional but I does the photos no justice.

    Can Raquel not be in Vogue US for one month? Like is that even possible? Also this looks really similar to her spread in December’s Vogue.

      It looks so similar that I think it could be leftovers from the same shoot.

      Oh and BTW yes I can see the tweet button now, so it was just my sister’s computer.

    It IS so similar to the December shoot! Raquel in long silhouettes, funky hair, and awkward facial expressions!

    Notice how her expressions are the same every other photo. David Sims, Vogue US and Raquel could have done a lot better.

    I just don’t understand how when Sims photographs for Vogue Paris or even Vogue UK it turns out looking 20x better than when he shoots for Vogue US.

      That’s because Carine Roitfeld and Alexandra Shulman are appealing to markets which have a greater appreciation for artistic innovation. Anna Wintour is trying to appeal to the upper-class American housewife, which is present in EVERY facet of the magazine, from the advertisers, to the pieces of writing.

    This is EXACTLY the same as the editorial in December issue, but not even improved on!!!!! WTH is going on?! Im seriously canceling my subscription. Im sick and tired of this bland rubish.

    When I opened this issue, I was thoroughly stunned by how horrible this editorial was.

    I’ve been a dedicated Vogue US reader for years, and part of me keeps cheering them on, hoping they will go back to the Vogue I once knew, but editorials like these make me lose hope.

    Not a single one of these photos is inspiring, or flattering for that matter.

    I think the wide leg pant looks great on a lot of women, but it’s something you have to see in movement to truly appreciate – maybe better suited for a video editorial?

    And yes, it seems as if Raquel has tenure at the Vogue offices… it might be time for her to retire.
