    Great choices of cover models: Florence is such an excellent artist with a beautiful, deep soul, Halima is so pretty and I'm always there for embracing diversity, Yara is just too nice and is so inspiring, she is a great role model. Also I'm happy that even if there's Cara's name she didn't get a cover, I'm so tired of her.
    My favourite cover is Yara but I like all the editorials.

    While what I said about Halima still stands, it's impossible to deny how great her cover looks. Definitely the strongest of the lot, and I like her edit too. I think it's the first shoot where she looks like a fashion model in traditional sense.
    Quite prefer Florence's cover as well, especially with the whole 'Alice falling down the rabbit hole' pose. The editorial doesn't interest me, neither does the other girl's cover and edit.

    Yet again I'm left wondering what Chewing Gum's Michaela Coel would have to do to get a big cover!?! This is a British magazine after all. Third cover should've been hers.

    Three pointless covers. Florence and Halima's are eyesorish, the third one is okay, but bland.
    Feminism again... Cosmo is more empowering than them.

    It's out already, comes with free Benefit samples (eg mini Hoola).

    Well gotta say that Halima cover is just gorgeous, easily the best one posted so far, and her best cover ever!

    Right? I'm beginning to think much of what's wrong with her past shoots must lie with the team. These stunning poses didn't just materialise out of nowhere.

    Wow definitely Halima's best cover I've ever seen. Benn is right this is the first time I'm seeing her resemble a traditional fashion model without everyone having to play on or base a shoot around her ethnicity/religion. It's nice to see this gorgeous photo of her embracing her diversity but not making it the main focal point of the photo. She's beautiful! Love it.

    The shot of Florence they're using for the cover... she looks so over it, like they've asked her to do something she thought she'd never have to do again, and never wanted to do again.

    So what should have been an exciting shot of a party dress worn by someone with a big smile, just looks like a bored woman sitting on a massive pink pantyliner, who didn't even bother brushing her hair.

    Agree. Would have much rather seen the shot of her sitting in the grass with her hair blowing on the cover. The energy in the shot feels for "florence-esque" anyways. Always dancing around on stage being wild and having fun, it's what makes her, her.

    Halima's cover all the way for me, although Florence's main shot looks pretty good on the newsstand too. The above secondary cover is just ridiculous and unnecessary.

    I just cant stand Florence, IDK how she manage to still be a thing in this industry.
    Besides that, I like her cover I must say, its not bad, maybe too 2010. Halima did better tho.

    What really intrigues me is that headline: "the it-bag is back!", what thats even mean?? What is happening in the UK?

    I bought this today as part of a magazine multi-pack, the Florence cover seemed to be the version included in that deal.

    It's 236 pgs, notable campaigns include a gatefold inside the cover for the Chanel 31 bag, and a nice Grace Elizabeth ad for Estee Lauder lipstick. Doutzen features in a 2 pg advertorial for Tiffany & Co nearer the back of the issue.

    The It-bag thing is just a 2 pg article about traditional best-sellers and how a bag can possibly stand out and be remembered, especially in today's market, nothing remarkable.

    The Jameela Jamil interview is 4 pgs, half of that is taken up with full-page shots of her. She's easy on the eye, but she loves jumping on the nearest available bandwagon, so I can already imagine what the interview will be like. Tturn the page, and the next article is about 'fauxpowerment', using feminism as a commodity.

    In addition to the various cover stories already seen in this thread:

    WILD AND FREE, a 6 pg outdoors editorial, shot by Fauve Bouwman, styled by Felicity Kay, with model Camila Ribeiro.

    COUTURE'S NEW MOOD is a 14 pg studio editorial, shot by Victor Demarchelier, styled by Gillian Wilkins, with model Lina Hoss. Victor seems to be one of those contributors who demands their name appears as a credit on most of the pages, which is handy, just in case you get to the sixth page and you've already forgotten who the mediocre photographer was.

    There aren't any beauty edits and the travel section is quite short, so that's the lot.

    Victor's editorial looks like it was shot by his father.

    I bought this yesterday because my local Tesco had the cover with Halima Aden (which is definitely the best out the bunch) available in the regular sized edition, and I was VERY keen to see Victor Demarchelier's story having read your review, tigerrouge.

    Nice issue upon first glance but nothing remarkable - definitely fails to reignite my interest in starting to purchase British Elle on the regular again and they want to be thankful it was shrink-wrapped because I wouldn't of made the £4.40 purchase otherwise.
