    Hello

    He is such a handsome guy, but this picture is horrible. It looks like too much is going on. they should have picked a better dress for her. you can not appreciate her beautiful figure. He looks awful!!! I hope Vogue reconsiders!

    WELL MY FIRST GLIMPSE OF THE COVER I WAS LIKE ” ARE YOU SERIOUS”! I REALLY DON’T LIKE IT. JUST THNIK ABOUT WHEN YOU TAKE A PICTURE AND YOUR MOUTH IS OPEN, EVERYONE ALWAYS SAYS DAMN THATS UGLY MY MOUTHS OPEN!!! HIS FACE LOOKS UGLY AND HE IS A VERY HANDSOME GUY! I’M DISAPPOINTED THEY DON’T EVEN MATCH. THERE IS NO THEME. HE’S A BASKETBALL PLAYER AND SHES A MODEL BUT NO CLASHING BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT WORLDS. THEY SHOULD HAVE GISELE DRESSES UP IN ATHLETIC GEAR AND JAMES ALL MODELED OUT! THAT IS BETTER. AND HAVE HER WITH HER MOUTH ALL OPEN!!!

    I love it! I love that for once vogue doesn’t have your typical tall gorgeous “perfect” model on the cover alone. It brings more attention to vogue having James on the cover w/Gisele… it shows that vogue’s up for new changes/taking chances. This was a very risky chance for Vogue to not only put a male on the cover but, for it to be a Star athlete. I think they did a WONDERFUL job! I LOVE IT! Although, I’d really like to see James dressed up all GQ and maybe a better pose from BOTH of them BUT, GREAT IDEA VOGUE! GOOD JOB!

    laurie – are you kidding me, ugliest model ever ? you are high.

    I like this cover. I think its creative and a much needed change over the same Vogue covers month after month.

    NO NO NO… OPEN mouth – not attractive

    Giselle – terrible position against LeBron ! The editor of this shot
    should be fired ! Terrible terrible concept to put on cover.

    Oh… btw… really don’t like it !

    NO WAY!!!! terrible picture of her or she was not feeln’ her job this day. she was not into the LeBron spirit or something. Hope she wasnt paid much for the gig. Tyra’s next top models could have done better than her. no shape, bad colors, her look as far as her and the photographer makn her hair wild is just awful. Sorry Vogue but that was terrible. Hope you re-do this with a more deserving model who likes her job and show our DUDE OFF as he deserves. the other 2 male models had good photo shots. why can’t he. find someone else to clown on. aka BLU$H

    Some of you people are RETARDS!!! Lebron James is the MAN. You all are hatin because he has taken over the NBA and taken over the U.S. He can’t be stopped and will be the first athlete billionaire like he says he wants to because he can do whatever he wants. And thsat person that said Lebron is on steroids or whatever, you gotta be kiddin me, in high school he was damn near just as big!

    Nay…..I love both of these people. however, vogue should’ve used better pictures, because im sure there were some.

    She looks like she’s had too much Prozac and he looks like he’s angry at you for looking at the magazine.

    Something fun like the both of them posed playing 1 on 1 would have been fun, more marketable and definately with the theme of the issue. Yes, the public likes supermodels to be glamourous, but also appreciate cohesion.

    From a layout standpoint the cover is visually confusing, busy, distracting and not appealing, which is very sad considering I’m a fan of both on the cover.

    But, we’ll have to give the team some cookie points for having such a talked about cover.

    sHARON Says:

    Not the most flattering photo of either. Obviously they are in shape-but the picture doesn’t do either of them justice. Bad choice for a cover spread, I think they should have done a better photo of the two.

    doncasses Says:

    This photo reminds me of King Kong and Ann Darrow, these two celebs are classy people so I don’t know why they (Vogue) would want to capture them in this fashion. Not Cool!!

    maya Says:

    all you idiots saying that gisele is fugly, odd-looking, wierd etc are just jealous fools. Gisele is a beautiful woman and y’all need to stop hating. As for Lebron, I think its a cool pic…looking cool and collected in a suit and tie would have been too predictable….none of you ninnies are artists apparently……goodness get some creativity in you!

    Filipinas Says:

    the cover is not it’s best but it’s ok…. people saying bad things to Giselle are just jealous. Make sure u look better than Giselle when u like to judge her physical appperance.

    marti joeseph Says:

    really really bad cover…..i never found giselle to be beautiful..but in this cover she looks even worse…and she is stick thin….what happened to all the curves..and lebron look like an irritated, hungry bear

    I like it. :-) The idea itself is very interesting…and I enjoy that a magazine like Vogue would put a big burly basketball player on the cover. ;-) LeBron is good looking off the court…but I’m glad they used his game face. I like that it’s not all about sex. Gisele looks pretty… and just a touch silly. Sort of like a bunny rabbit. A beautiful woman in a bad, bad dress.

    Meh… Not good at all and not quite awfull enough to be considered good either. King Kong and Fay Wray much?

    mS eDUCATED Says:

    Everyone with a conscience should boycott this cover of Vogue. Vogue is clearly trying to depict Lebron as an animal and Giselle as the damsel in distress. It’s a clear reference to King Kong. Why is his mouth open like an animal. And it does appear she’s running away. Why couldn’t they have him sitting at a throne like a King, with the model feeding him grapes. Isn’t his nickname King James? This is a racist attack on the image of the Black man. Lebron should have known better.

    NAY Says:

    This is the cover of Vogue Magazine. Why would they put Lebron is a basketball uniform with his mouth open like he’s angry?.. Next to a model who is smiling and running away. They should have had him in a suit, spinning a basketball maybe.

    nd Says:

    I’m a fan of both, but don’t like the cover. Interesting concept though. I would have liked him in a suit holding the ball in one hand and Gi in the other. Don’t care for the photographer either. She’s not a fashion photographer and it’s obvious. Hopefully there’s a better shot inside.

    btw Gisele is one of the most beautiful woman in the world. The secret to her success is she doesn’t look like a damn run of the mill barbie doll.

    Jay Says:

    For some reason the King Kong aspect of it really turned me on. I bet they had a great after party – with Tommyboy nowhere in sight!!!

    carina Says:

    I absolutly loveee this cover. Gisele is absolutly gorgous on this cover. Gisele and Lebron look so playful together in this cover. I am definetly buyin this issue.=]

    Kevin Says:

    This is extremely racist. It just perpetuates the idea that black men are loud and violent — and to be feared while white women are dainty and innocent. Leave it to Vogue to play the race card and create a racist photograph…They rarely ever put people of color on their cover and this is the best they could come up with???

    JCI Says:

    It looks great – not sure where all this racial crap is coming from – they both are people in amazing shape – if you got it – SHOW IT!!
