Wow, thumbs up from me!!! The revamp, that is. It looks unlike anything on the newsstand and not very British at all. Very modern. And the styling looks stunning as well. It's just Cara with her awful hair which I'm not sold on.

Clean and straight to the point look, not a fan of Cara and the styling.

I like it. Very fresh.

The layout is a hit for me. I like it here. However, the only issue I have is, is this a layout that is flexible enough? Surely it works here, but what if it's an outdoor shot with a busy street as the background? Is it not too thin that it would disappear?

I agree with Benn, it's nothing like we usually see.

Also, what on earth is the text saying?

I hope the new editor shakes things up internally, so it could do the same externally. Edward needs someone to challenge him, if we want him to excel. Otherwise, complacency is a killer in the industry.

Romeo Beckham already getting covers? He looks great.

Jokes asaide, actually really like these. She works it, and her PR should get a raise she is getting tons of covers, despite another flop movie!

I like the layout. 1st cover > 2nd cover.

Funny you should mention this, the British press have already started to compare them since they're both tasked with revamping a magazine with solid sales figures. Last year's September issue sold tremendously well under Lorraine, so Anne Marie's got her work cut out for her.

Well it certainly different. I'm hoping AMC's comments about her decision to take ELLE back to what it once was turn out to be true. ELLE has had such high points in its past but in recent years they tried to seek out a weird 'cool' tween audience that I was absolutely not convinced by.

It should be interesting to see what Anne Marie's Elle will look like if she doesn't go youth. I'm assuming last September sold well because of Kristen (who booked both Sep 2015 & 2016) and Zayn - youth fodder imo. While this one with Cara isn't much of a mature departure, I must say I like the execution. It's just so fresh.

Vogue also promised to go youth (in terms of direction), so that will leave the field clear for Harper's to monopolise the 35+ crowd. The ones who longer have sex, that is.

It's cerrtainly better than before. I feel like they could have styled Cara better though, I don't quite feel what they've done here.
