On my way back home from San Diego, the 7-hour or so flight (with connections) back to the East coast allowed me ample time to catch up on my monthlies. While the June issue of Vogue was a light, but interesting read I was very disappointed to see a fall cover on a summer issue. I am well aware that all these mags race to get out new, fresh looks inspired by the season to come but I would have loved to see a bikini. OK maybe not a bikini, this is Vogue after all, and they do nothing typical or expected but something fun and summery, something along the lines of a hot-weathered-want-to-escape-and-look-like-her cover would have been appreciated. And, the cover girl is Keira Knightley, this is so typical. I know I just said that they do nothing typical but as one of my previous posts indicated, they always reuse the same ol' Hollywood girls for the cover and quite frankly I am quite sick of it. The least they could have done was dress her up in summery brights. Yes, it may be conventional but sometimes conventional is OK.
