After yesterday’s release of Chinese artist Ai Weiwei’s cover, W magazine debuted an alternate shot featuring Nicki Minaj. The cover and accompanying spread portrays Minaj in various classical portraits, as re-created by Italian artist Francesco Vezzoli. Do you prefer Weiwei’s graphic image of model Sui He being tackled to the ground, or will you pick up Vezzoli’s Minaj issue instead? [W]
