    Looks more like a jewellery ad than a magazine cover, but I welcome the sight of any American magazine putting an Asian face on the front of an issue.

    Looks like Allure Korea, except it probably has 150-200 pages less than a usual Korean issue.

    The cover and editorials look like Chinese E-comm makeup campaigns nobody in the West knows about or how to pronounce.

    No idea who these girls are or why we should care for them, but maybe Americans would because it's clearly intended for them? LOL. Michelle's track record when it comes to Asian beauty is abysmal and I'm all for fresh faces, but this is not the solution. Surely there are Asian women in America who would have been a better choice? Or even someone from Canada, maybe Sandra Oh considering Killing Eve is dropping the end of the month.

    Huge fail, imo.

    Lucy Liu. A gorgeous household name the print is being so ignorant about.

    Because we should continue pushing the same and only recognizable Asian actress of the last 20 years instead of introducing people to some new ones.

    @A.D.C. you really think that Lucy was pushed well enough? Take a look at least at her Angel peers Cameron and Drew (or just Cameron as the other one got into acting as a child) and compare. I believe that this "same and only recognized Asian actress" hasn't been pushed enough at all.

    I actually love the first cover very fresh and clean. South Korean inspired skin care regimens and beauty have become very popular in the West so the cover subject makes sense. Not too sold on the other covers or the ed.

    They're miles better than Blackpink. There, I said it.

    I absolutely adore Lucy Liu, but in what world would it have made sense for her to book this cover? We’re not in 2003.

    I may not be a fan of K-Pop or at all familiar with its stars, but there are a lot of (younger) Americans who are and who will most likely try to get their hands on one of these.

    Between this thread and the Jennie Kim cover, there seems to be either a hatred for Kpop or just a disdain for Asian superstars not known in the West... A little diversity wouldn't hurt no?

    Way to highlight South Korea’s rampant colorism esp in regards to their K-Pop idols!
