They highlighted a very uninteresting part of her body on the sub cover.

Rosie likes to do this weird thing with her mouth like I guess that pouting thing she does to make her mouth seem fuller or whatever but she looks really good here actually she looks good all the time haha

I think it looks good, both of them actually! And it's nice to see a model on the cover for a change.

Both of the covers are gorgeous and I'm really happy to see Rosie even though it's not really surprising.

I think I prefer newsstand cover, Rosie looks absolutely gorgeous!
Both are lovely though - I like the peachy/orange background. V. Different for UK ELLE!

It seems as though a few people are viewing this as purely a 'model' cover and questioning the choice of Rosie, but it's obvious that while she IS a top model, she's probably also on the cover to promote the new Transformers movie?

I really like Rosie as a model but I wished she hadn't altered her lips.

Damn. And UK Elle was doing so well for a moment...

Neither cover is selling themselves to me. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley doesn't have the "cream of the crop" star power either as a model or an actress to really sell this on her own, and nothing about her or the cover says, "learn more about me here & NOW, because I'm worth making a note of." At the same time, there isn't a lot of pleasant or attractive imagery that is associated with the color beige, and the overbearing use of it actually makes me a bit dry in the throat - the sandy desert is the first thing that comes to mind here. But then it fits, because the vast emptiness of it also pretty much describes my interest in Rosie H-W, and these covers do nothing to awake it.

There is also something odd about her lips here. I don't know what it is, but they are nevertheless charging at me from the newsstands cover like a pair of elephants.

At any rate, this feels like the first clear sign of a downward trend in class in the magazine's standard practice in cover photography (of which there have been some inklings already earlier this year). Undressing yourself or bare chests is in no way a novelty on a (fashion) mag cover, but it is a step away (read: step down) from some of their earlier covers which have relied more on clothing and powerful poses than they have on skin and suggestive intimations.

She hasn't....it's a family trait. Her brother and sister have the exact same lips.
