W July 2009

So I just got my copy of the new W in the mail. There's some ominous photo of Bruce Willis on the cover with his new wife and I wasn't sure exactly what to expect, but felt my stomach wrench slightly. The accompanying editorial, by Steven Klein, is pretty much THE most fucked up thing I've seen in W for a long time. Their past couple issues were pretty lackluster so maybe they were going for shock value. But really? REALLY Steven Klein? Do you think this is Vogue Paris or something? What the what?


I mean maybe if it were anyone else?

Woah, this is really odd. I don't think I like it too much.

And that third photo down from the top...wtf?

Dude all of them are wtf to me. It's as if Klein combined his fears of powerful women and clowns into one shitshow and W replied, "GENIUS!"

This is really weird..... They should've done it with someone else, or not have done it at all. lol.

i found it odd when i first saw the pics but yh i think if it was someone else and she wasnt his wife maybe it wouldnt be so weird

I actually sort of liked it. the set-ups were interetsing and the colours in the photos so cool. But then, I am weird like that.

I was a bit shocked when I received my W Magazine too.
