I'm not one of those Elle UK haters (there have been some nice covers lately and I like their graphic layout), but it feels like we've seen this cover one thousand times! White background, Alexa in florals...So bland and seen.

The bottom of the cover looks oddly bare without text.

this is so true

But seriosuly, this looks bad, it looks way more appropriate for February or something.
And I will never understand people's fascination with Alexa, I'm tired of her and she is so boring

Agreed, they haven't had a really striking cover in a while even though their cover subjects might be interesting. Something festive or with a little fantasy wouldn't hurt. Guess I'll have to look to Harper's for that.

What a bland and uninspired cover. I don't particular like Alexa but I can't help but be impressed at the sheer amount of covers she manages to book for no apparent reason. She must sell well, although I can't imagine why at this point.

Not a bad cover, but it just looks odd with all the texts just on the upper 3/4 of the page.

Looks more like a January issue than a December one.

In the world of magazines, September issues were generally rubbish, while the October and November issues were better, and I wonder if December covers are going to look depressing, instead of glittery and happy, while the January ones are going to have much more energy.

I'm seriously wanting something extremely festive from Harper's Bazaar and Vogue for December. Something very red, glittery and Christmassy!

I've not one single problem with seeing Alexa Chung on the cover of a fashion magazine, since she's so suited to the magazine's demographic and I don't blame Elle in the slightest for giving Alexa her fourth cover. I do, however, agree with the fact that this is SO unbelievably bland and insipid, it's rather horrifying. No thought or effort put into the cover shot whatsoever. Overall, I think the cover is okay and I've certainly seen worse from British Elle but there's no denying this would've been more suitable for January or February.
