    Jourdan did a good job, she looks like her old top model self so hopefully she stays like that in how she takes care of her self, how she poses and how she projects. Lately I have been very uninspired by her work but now she shines bright again: good on her :)

    Love the colour scheme and mad about the crisp, minimal art direction. Really hope Elle will stick with this for at least a year. But maybe a black masthead wasn't an ideal choice here!?!

    Why the big fanfare over Stormzy? What has he done for fashion, or in Elle's case, women? Confused by the casting to be honest. At least Jourdan is prominently positioned despite sitting on the floor between a man's legs on the cover of a pro-women's magazine. It's that SJP/Vogue cover all over again......

    Well, it's 2019, where women are free to choose to sit on the floor, because that's modern feminism. I look forward to the article about this.

    Sadly, like Stormzy, I would need to sit on a miniaturized picnic table, because once I'm down on the floor, there's no coming back, mainly because I'm old enough to remember when Susie Bick appeared on the pages of this magazine.

    I have no idea who this Stormzy person is, but no....just no to him on this cover.
    If I was a woman who bought Elle, I'd skip this month tbh. He is not selling me fashion or fantasy on that cover. Jourdan's top is cute.

    Jourdan looks gorgeous on the first cover.
    Stormzy and the other two covers seem completely unnecessary.
    But I like Stormzy's portrait on the third, just not for an Elle cover.

    "The Great British Fashion Issue" of a woman's magazine and it highlights a male celebrity that some of us have to look up online first to figure out who he is? Who's in charge of the casting for this magazine? I mean, the layout and styling itself is nice, but I don't see the point of giving him the cover when a feature and an editorial would do just fine, more than enough even.

    The budget cuts have gotten so bad they couldn't even afford a second chair for Jordan.

    Okay, the Great British Fashion issue but is Jourdan is wearing Chanel?

    Stormzy does have quite a big following along young people in the UK, so maybe that's who they're trying to attract. Seems very off with their actual target market though - how do they associate a grime rapper with women's fashion? Maybe I'm missing something...lovely shot of Jourdan though. The group shot is not a suitable cover image by any stretch - will be gobsmacked if I actually see it in print.

    Amazing cover. The picture inside of Jourdan, Leomie and another girl is great.

    Wow, all the images are sooo beautiful. Love all three edits. I may be old, though, but I don't know who Stormzy is??
