I don't know, that would be a lot of photoshopping - the girl at the gate has gloves, short sleeves, a wide neckline, and something in her hair, while this one has no gloves, long sleeves, tight neckline, and nothing in her hair. Also, the girl at the gate has her hands resting above her shoulders, whereas these are below.

Thanks for the input. Will have to compare closer now.

There are times spotting the duplicate covers versus just the similar poses etc. reminds me of my favorite game from my PBS childhood: "one of these things is not like the other" - or one of those "find what is different in these two pictures" puzzles from family restaurant menus. :D

I get a bit too into those games. "No, the tilt of the lip is all wrong" and so on. :geek:

It's the black jacket, but is it the same guy?

Oh my. From the book description I'm thinking this is the one about Lettice Knowles.

The pic is awful but at least it's the right period/dress for once! Although you'd think VH would get a better cover than that...

The dress fits for once, but yeah the picture is so bad. Doesn't flatter the model one bit.

Well now. I think this is a match? Or am I imagining things?
