    Wow, striking! This will definitely draw attention at the newsstands. I don't like the angle, but the styling looks great. And I'm over Nicki's permanently fierce expression, so this slightly softened look and faint smile looks refreshing. Don't listen to her music, but one can't deny she's rather beautiful and Elle did that justice here!

    Also mad about the newfound fashion prestige for US Elle! It's obviously all on Gan, but this is a nice little coup for them. I like that he kept Karl for Nicki and not Kendall (done before), Kim (same) or Charlize (Dior.)

    Usually i am allergic to any magazine messing with their masthead (looking at you VF!!)that trend should have stayed in the 80s. But!! This really works, what a truly refreshing cover.

    I do love the cover, but "reclaims her throne"??? Don’t tell me it’s from Cardi B lol.

    Wow, I was expecting something really bad but Karl surprised me with this one. I like it!

    I'm aware of the world we are living in, but really? And it's not just Minaj, but it's her and Karl and everything about it.

    Surprisingly simple but effective.

    Gan is using his connections to the fullest! We can expect a Hedi Slimane for Beyoncé next?
    I like this much like I liked her story with Marie Amelie Sauve...

    But the ed is so weird. It’s like if they went the day he was shooting his Chanel campaign and somehow at the end they took some pictures.
    It’s hard to believe that this was prepared...

    I wonder if Nicki will bless her with her presence during Couture’s week. The last time she was at PFW she had all the attention she wanted.

    At least trim the beard! If the shoot went down the way Nicki described then I predict he'll use her for the brand soon.

    Editorial is a snoozefest however. It lacks the tongue-in-the-cheek quirk to make it look vaguely interesting. Couldn't it be like something similar to Marc Jacobs x Naomi by Jean Paul Goude?

    Also, how is it possible to have such a long weave?????

    What a disappointing ed. On what planet is that shot of her with Karl “Iconic”?!!! Please, spare me the hyperbole!!

    I like the picture for different reasons - Cleopatra incarnate staring over an ageing Robin. But overall forgettable. It's nice for her to have this shoot on her resume, but she should rather get back to working with Klein now.

    If only the contents of US Elle could make as much impact as its covers do.

    Can't think of a worst combination. That pic of Minaj and Karl is probably the epitome of everything i find aesthetically repulsive in fashion. It's like they are lifeless. I can't see that the trend surgically constructed women shows no signs of abating.

    LOVE the cover, but the editorial is a let down. Nicki is not high fashion at all. She’s just fashion. Plus, the cover doesn’t go along with the ed. And I don’t like the tag line on the cover, because she was never the queen of rap.

    Really great cover; the editorial is lazy. I still feel someone could do more with Nicki editorially, can't understood why she never graced the cover of Interview :(.
