Mine arrived this morning and I'm astounded at how horrendous the new structure looks. You cannot differentiate the adverts and the actual content. It's dated and unattractive, just all over the place. There's about several different fonts used, no sense of identity whatsoever. I'm not even overreacting either, I don't think.

One thing I will note is that the beauty section is brilliant (One new shot of Anja Rubik by Jan Welters), I love how the products dominate the pages with brief reviews. I often think beauty is seen as a smaller, filler section to fashion magazines. Now, Elle has one of the best.

I'm certain for the average Elle reader there is sufficient material complied into this particular issue. There's certainly ample amount of pictures and little text boxes to look at. But, I'm afraid I prefer something sleek and refined.

Mat thanks a million for all the previews, both eds on this page are wonderful. Oh and just randomly saw Lorraine on Sky News flipping through this issue while talking about the cover subjects future, they are riding the Beckham PR hard, its almost impressive!

I must agree with Vogue28 - the new layout instead of being 'fresh', 'modern' or 'young' is just messy and I would even say amateurish. If I wanted a magazine that looks like a print screen from my iPad, I would get an iPad edition instead

I was especially lost with the columnists (they have their mini photo-portrait on the very edge of the page where you cannot see it straight away) - it took me a while to find my favourite Lisa Eldridge there!

I was travelling yesterday so I've bought a mini version of the magazine and sometimes I was not able to see some of the images which were printed smaller than my fingernail?! I am designer and you have to take into consideration how the print is going to translate into various sizes, not just rely on how the 'original' size looks like. Big incompetence masked as being 'new'; new does not always mean better though.

All in all it reminds me these tumblrs of teenage fashion obsessed girls where you cannot work out what is what and gifs are flashing all over the place

I do not think I will buy another edition of ELLE UK to save myself a lot of irritation. I was even considering tweeting Lorraine about it but I will just vote against the next issue with my wallet instead. How come French can always get it right?

I suppose it just goes to demonstrate how different our tastes are. Personally I like it, I find it a refreshing change. People go on about the layout of magazines like VP, personally they leave me utterly uninspired. They're never going to be able to please even half of everyone so I suppose you're damned if you, damned if you don't.

I still believe the cover revamp is a mistep however.

That final shot of Barbara in #77 is everything!!

I'm gonna go on a hunt for her cover tomorrow after work. Hoping that the WHSmith in Manchester Piccadilly station has it.

i would never consider myself a Barbara fan, but that editorial is really nice and she looks beautiful.

I heard there's a Jil Sander interview in that issue. Is it true? I'd be curious to read it.

Indeed there's a Jil Sander interview, which consists of four pages. Two of those pages are the actual interview and the other two are just the title and a photo of Sander outside her first store.

There's a Jil Sander feature in March's Harper's Bazaar too.
