  1. what an odd couple. i dunno. i love how the whole thing looks but it doesn't look like they have any chemistry here. its not cause of the race or anything cause they can pair up any couple of any different race and as long as they have the chemistry it'll work but these two doesn't seem to go along right. like they are both posing and not in sync with each other. as if annie leibovitz took their pic separately. it could have been better.

  3. Yes, I think it almost looks like Natalia has been superimposed into the picture in some of them. Except for the one where they're in an embrace the editorial looks more like a 'Hollywood break up' than a Hollywood love story.

  5. It would have been better had it been Taye Diggs and not p.diddy. P Diddy is just gross.

  7. Expected more from Diddy. For someone who loves the camera, he did not play his part at all.
    Natalia is my eternal favorite…a 5'9 little girl…

  9. Can't stand it! He has one facial expression. Why didn't they get a model and shoot a real fashion story. I dissaprove!

  11. Simply put: this is a total failure. Firstly, I'm totally against this "union of models and celebrities," as Joanna put it, in American fashion magazines in general. It's definitely not just Vogue. It's tired and needs to change if they want to keep readers aside from soccer moms who also subscribe to Time and People. The worst part about this for me is that I love Natalia. What an absolutely horrible editorial for her. And I can go into everything that everyone's already mentioned and is well aware of. Right, there's no connection, "P Diddy" is utterly inexpressive, etc. It doesn't matter. The editorial is not good by any decent measure and that's that.

    And remember, people – this is strictly just my opinion.

    i think thats the whole point of the shoot. it’s not about the chemistry, more so about impending heartbreak. It’s a brief encounter that’s not supposed to mean anything.

  15. How random is this? And by random I mean stupid.

    Natalia is stunning as always though

  17. Judging by the comments that this post garnered, this edit certainly did its job.

  19. natalia is stunning. i think annie leibovitz is great, it's just weird that these two never look each others in the eyes. feel like there's no connection.

  21. The pairing of Natalia Vodianova and Sean Diddy Combs (is that what we are calling him now?) is a little unexpected but, as one might expect from the artistic vision of Grace Coddington, this editorial is magnificent.

  23. Race-mixing propaganda. 

    Look what happens in REAL LIFE to dumb white women who date Negroes:

    Not to mention that Negroes have a much higher rate of STD infection than Whites:

    You have been warned.

  24. I’m sorry, but I don’t find a Black rapper paired with a gorgeous White woman beautiful, I find it degrading.  You can call me all the names in the book, “racist, hater, redneck,” in order to demonize me, but I’m a Human being and I have a right to express how I feel.  And in terms of racism, I guarantee the horse-faced Jewish photographer is racially motivated.  She just hides her racism behind her work (not that it’s particularly subtle or hidden).

    Is the white girl looking to catch AIDS from the African, or does she already carry the virus from a previos encounter?

    I think, I like it. If you look it in the other way, they played the ‘brief encounter’ well. It could be better but there was an element of something that just happened, sudden and minimal at the first. It’s a story where you ponder about the ending. Did they just leave the train after their little encounter together, or from that day, something changed between them and plot thickens…. 

    Just a thought. But, over all. An interesting pair. <3 <3
