While it's a truly wonderful sight to see Halima Aden on the cover of a mainstream American magazine - I can't say I'm a fan of how this turned out. I dislike how Halima's not looking out toward the reader, don't like the expression on her face or the hand gesture. But yeah... major kudos to Allure for using Halima on their cover.

Thank you Miss Dalloway & Handbag Queen!

WTH is that gesture?! I guess it works with the tagline but they could have come up with something more fashion-y...

Wow, kudos to her for landing an American glossy! I will def me picking this up. Allure has really been good this year minus a few hiccups in the beginning of the year.

I love the cover. If her star rises, I can see her landing a top 4 Vogue cover later this year.

It's far too obvious. They could have done something really special, instead they just threw on a basic American looking jacket and put her in front of a camera. Very lazy styling.

That could have been a lot better.
The facial expression is terrible.
And is this a portrait of her hand?! what is that hand sign anyway?

I applaud the decision to feature Halima on the cover but the execution is astonishingly bad. Her Vogue Arabia covers and CR cover were so superior. The styling here is not glamorous, not flattering, not interesting. And her hand dominates the cover.

Hooray for Solve!! Once you look past the gimmicks it's actually a nice beauty cover. Love the grey, and her make-up, that's all. Not here for the styling of the handpose!

This magazine is doing interesting things with its covers, but once I'm beyond that, the flimsy pages (both in actual number and content) make me feel like Allure's got the life expectancy of Lucky magazine.

Same thing happened to Self! The last few months had all these interesting cover subjects, then it boomed.
I can't imagine their numbers looking terribly good with that page count.

^ So true!! Each issue of Allure is thinner, with less content, what is going on!! With the numbers you posted of dying W, there have to be major changes made. W is just ugh!

I love this cover though, love it for the sheer fact its like unlike any other cover they did in their history, and she looks beautiful, and wow at SS shooting for Allure!
