Inez & Vinoodh photographed James Franco for VMAN’s red-tinged Winter 2011 cover. Apparently VMAN thinks James is the “Man of the Decade (So Far),” but isn’t 2011 a little too early to be calling it? He’s the man of this issue anyway. Forum members seemed to either love it or hate it.
Melancholybaby posted, “It's a great cover but then again it's James so he could be in a potato sack and a mask and I'd still be satisfied.”
Fluxxx also fell in the “love it” category. He wrote, “OMG the cover and his editorial are just simply awesome… this guy can pull off the cool look effortlessly.”
Others were not so easily impressed by the rose-colored cover. “The cover is just red overkill and it kind of reminds me of his GQ cover from December 2010,” KINGofVERSAILLES commented. "Also, I can not stand James Franco and I don't think his shots inside are anything to go gaga over. They're pretty standard. Nothing new to see here. Moving on.”
[J.]Oliver simply posted, “I’m growing SO tired of him.”
I don’t think I’ve quite reached my saturation point just yet. I’ve still got some ogling left in me so I'm good with this.
