Agreed, the font color and floral styling screams spring to me, not autumn.

I agree completely. And no doubt that that strong period was because of Jenny Dickinson's leadership.

I have a dislike for Rosie, I really do. Her lips just...bug me lol. Styling isn't horrible, I guess, but it's just not screaming 'September' to me. Oh well, here's hoping the contents are better than the cover...

Not at all what I was expecting for September. This would have made a great cover for spring.

Rosie's gorgeous and I love the Dolce collection, but I agree not that special for a sept cover. Hopefully the contents are more exciting

Of course, they should have made more use of Rosie as she is stunningly beautiful, it's UK Elle though. Just look at what UK Vogue done with her over a year ago, they made full use of her potential, the cover was fabulous, yeah her editorial was short and teasing but at least it got executed damn well.

Anyway back to this cover, despite it looking more for Spring rather than the fall season I might just surprisingly purchase this issue. Obviously it isn't groundbreaking, at the same time it isn't terrible. I know I have previously said I have no intention of buying this magazine in the future so I sound a bit hypercritical but this being the September issue is a good excuse right?

For a September issue, Elle have failed to deliver with the newsstand cover. Those cover lines are so mundane.

I had to laugh at the internet dating one. It sounds straight out of 2002.

the coverlines are clueless but the image and pose of Rosie works really well and they didn't get overboard with the styling which is cool and something stylists struggle a lot with

It's too spring like and it's still not a powerful enough image i feel for a september cover. Also i would be far more interested in it if they used other more fashion focused models, instead of Rosie, but again i know that it would be highly unusual for Elle to use someone like Aymeline or Natasha.
