    I love Janelle. She looks so beautiful here. But she deserves way better than that hideous dress.

    I saw her in moonlight and thought she was absolutely gorgeous but she does have a very quirky style in real life so the dress kinda fits that.

    The color palette is very eye catching and I think it's quirky in the right way. I normally can't stand Molly Goddard's stuff but the dress doesn't irk me as much here.

    Not feeling this retro cover at all. She has perfect skin and striking features they should have had a close up

    The photoshop around her head is just so crappy and distracting. Also that type for the main titles is so spaced out and wrong in weight it makes this look more like a birthday card from the early 00's than a magazine cover. Get a REAL designer to fix that.

    Mad about Janelle but I don't like anything about this cover. Not the ridiculous hair, dress, or art direction. It was only a matter of time before they went back to their old tricks. Last month was just a stunning reprieve.

    I have long wanted to see more of Janelle in magazines, so I should be happy to see her on a cover, but somehow this cover isn't appealing to me.

    I mean, it's quirky, it's colourful... I can only think it's the lack of energy in the picture, the uncertain pose that doesn't make sense.

    Was excited when I saw the named Janelle, but was ultimately let down. Dont like this at all.

    I get that part of her shtick is being quirky, but fashion magazines are usually the platform to challenge a star's familiar traits. I'd love to see her stripped down or glammed up as I think she has a versatile beauty that can go either way.

    Same here, she's immensely beautiful, especially with those hollow orbits. A proper beauty cover would've been perfect. Yet with that said, I do like the last shot a lot.

    I flicked through it on zinio - as axiomatic mentions, it's under 100 pages. I always enjoy reading the first person features, and given that they are probably cheap to generate and fit with the magazine's message, I don't know why they don't produce more of that sort of content.

    Elsewhere, the beauty content is as lacklustre as ever, and stuck at what I call the "festival face" form of make-up. A lick of eyeliner in a gaudy colour, glittery eyeshadow...

    It's as if the magazine is afraid of either getting truly stuck into the serious business of beauty, or of letting go of its agenda and just doing something astonishing with someone's face. Ironically, in its attempts to widen the definition of beauty, it's become so wrapped up in its own message that there's no true visual exploration of any of the many things going on in the world of cosmetics and personal expression. Instead, it's a groundhog day of rehashing the spirit of the 90s.

    I will say, I like her cover choices. Perhaps not the cover shots themselves, but I think she's doing something important with her selection of the people appearing on the front of this magazine. I just wish the rest of the magazine was as bold.

    Her 90s inspired BET awards performnance look would have made an even better cover!
