Wow, I love it. It's so strong contrary to latest UK Elle covers. The texts are interesting. What I also wish is that they make the cover paper material a bit thicker. The current one is too thin and fragile.

^ Really? I usually buy only March or September issues, but i never noticed that before. In fact i got the last issue of French Elle last week, and i thought their edition has ridiculous paper quality, certainly worse quality it seemed.

French Elle covers are stronger/thicker than UK ones.

I'm not gonna lie, I kind of love this. :p

I like the image of Victoria, It's so tacky that it's actually amazing.

Not to keen on the new design though. I think I might one of the only people who actually liked the ELLE UK deign just the way it was, I liked buying the odd cover to add to my collection, This looks less fashion and more OK!

Curious to see what they've done with the subscription covers, Hope those haven't changed to drastically, I was always drawn to their simplicity.

This is so bad. The photo is truly bad but than you look at the text and it gets worst.
I dont even know why they changed, if there wass something I liked about Elle UK was how clean the magazine looked.
This is too all over the place...

Can I just ask, where has everyone got that she has three arms here? it is very clearly the sleeve of her jacket and they styled her wearing the jacket in a cape like manner.

I dislike the 'redesign' it looks far too clumsy, I never actually get who they aim the magazine at, women or teenage girls? and this leaves me even more confused regarding that question.

I notice British Elle have stolen a font from the French edition also.

The redesign has downgraded the look of the magazine. It's more suited for the American market and looks dated. Their design during 2007/08 was outstanding. It was original and set the trend for the rest of the British glossies.. even now. Thus far, this is a major step backwards and I hate it.

She looks like she's getting undressed inside a farm building made from corrugated metal. It's different, I'll give it that.

Higher quality:



Elle UK Facebook

Interesting to note they've gone up in price - isn't it usually around the £3.90 mark?

In higher res I actually dislike it more I think. Her fact is more off than I first though and I really do not like this new look at all.

i'm anxious to see what they've done with the redesign. because judging from the cover, it's going to be hell...

+ what's with 6 (?) different fonts? looks really random and sloppy.

That design looks very weird. A bit like French ELLE, which has always seemed a bit dated and cheap te me.
