    I think she´s a really good actress but in her print work she always looks so normal and bland imo... this is the first time that she looks like a movie star. Still, I´m not sure I like it, would like to see a bigger image.

    I'm not wild on her pose at all. The redesign looks to me like British Elle did a few years.

    A bit of info about the redesign from WWD -

    Oh this looks so clean. Something Elle covers have been rarely attributed too. I like it.

    However, I am bothered with that contour. I hope to heavens that it's blended, because by the looks of it, it's too harsh.

    So I'm guessing Kerry is for April? or is this another multi-cover

    More modern? Huh!! This actually looks dated to me, like a random UK ELLE cover from 2005!!

    The angle is so harsh, pretty terrible.

    Neither the pose nor the positioning of her face, due her justice. Just looks awkward.

    I love Brie but that hardly looks like her. What did they do to her face?

    Agreed. I would never know it's her if I just saw the image without any text!

    Brie is adorable and I am thrilled to see her get a cover, but this is such a weird angle it took me a second to even realize who it was. Not great, but still happy to see her.

    Say what you will about Elle, I really appreciate that they try to put somewhat interesting actresses on their covers.

    Man, the position makes her eyes look so wonky. I also agree that it looks nothing like her.

    I wouldn't be bragging that it took over a year to come up with this redesign, the oversized fonts look silly.

    While I applaud them for giving her a March cover (I think they'll probably leave it on newstands for longer than usual, since inevitably she'll win the Oscar and people might pick this up out of curiosity about her. I agree with those who've said it doesn't look like her. If someone showed me that cover without telling me who it was, I'm not sure I'd know. And this is coming from someone who's been a fan for years and has seen most of her films.

    I think ELLE is bad at showcasing "new" stars in ways that suit them. Their Daisy Ridley cover was a disaster, in my opinion, and you'd never guess it was the same person that was in the film, based on appearances alone.

    I've not quite warmed to Brie, so this looks ok. She's much like Greta Gerwig to me, girls who seem to be making films, yet you hardly see them on magazines other than W. Probably this shot had to sell her to the general public, which is why it looks so generic.

    The boasted re-design is a let-down. It's not as if they took major steps, but I imagine most of the changes will be noticeable throughout the magazine.

    She does not photograph well.
