    Nina's Elle started to be so good. It was very modern. However, recently it feels like she's taking so much inspiration from the 90s/Early 2000s Elle (from the Art Direction, Photography ++). This is no of exception. She's like the American Emmanuelle Alt in terms of Alt's 80s obsession.

    Notwithstanding, this is beautiful. Quintessential Jen.

    Two unflattering covers.
    The editorial is unfortunate. Particularly that last shot.

    Eeeck, I really wanted this to be great! Even Kendall's desert shoot was better than this one. The shot with the brown leather dress should've been adjusted into a cover. I guess the first cover is the best?
    It was never going to be a fashiony edit because she's not about that. The minidress and aviators, that's more closer to her image. And I understand why Elle decided to go that route - her cult is immensely profitable. But just this once I'd have liked to see a less familiar side to her.

    Jennifer Aniston's longevity and cult always intrigue me. She's been through so many public debacles, two divorces, an embarrassingly failed attempt at an Oscar, box office bombs, yet she just comes up smiling every time. There's something very positive and very American about that trajectory.

    I like everything except Jennifer Aniston. Sorry, but she is boring because she is too average. I find this cover better than InStyle though.

    i think it's her enduring legacy as Rachel Green on one of the most heavily syndicated and globally watched shows of all time. Couple that with a high profile marriage, an even more high profile divorce, a healthy list of rom-com hits to supplement her less successful serious roles. Then there's the clever PR team, and a bit of luck.

    Jennifer's image have a narrative that is very relatable to a lot of people, so you dont have to do much to convince people to get in in whatever she is involved, what can be bad or good for her in the future. I know that we dont wanna see a super fashion experiment with Aniston, but we all know what we will see whatever we see her name attached to a fashion magazine, because her fashion image is very tired.
    Something like Gwyneth to the last WSJ issue would be a amazing place to take Jennifer in terms of art direction.

    F*ck! Here we go with insufferable single Jen again. I’d fear this would happen. Why couldn’t her marriage last! So we could be spared the “don’t pity me pity party”.

    Jennifer has made a decades-long 'career' of selling a crafty public image where she combines being a glossy inhabitant of Hollywood with the feeling of being someone's (twice-divorced) best friend. She's simultaneously a success and a failure, and people can get with that.

    Not really sure what Zoey was trying to do here.

    Whoever thought that last editorial shot should see the light of day needs to hand in their resignation letter ASAP

    ↑ It took me a long time to realize that the masthead is white and it was really there, it looks like any outtake of the the editorial... and the styling is a disaster

    Oh no, they didn't!! A full D&G outfit on the cover is not a good way to start 2019. Beyond cancelled.

    I’ll give them the benefit as this was shot way before the allegations and printed before the scandal. It’s not like Nina can throw away the entire batch of issues. It is what it is.

    I wouldn't look too much into it. The image from #16 reads more like an opening to the editorial, as opposed to an official cover (take a look at the clothing credits at the bottom right).

    Speaking of covers... I came across this beautiful shot of Jennifer on Alison Edmond's Instagram page which I think would've made for a far superior cover, complete with a black Elle masthead and fonts, instead of that mega closeup shot:
