    Sick of all the women in hollywood covers. They all blur together, the photos are largely indistinguishable, & the articles are near identical. So what's the point? It's the clickbait of newstands everywhere.

    Kinda annoyed by the headline. Let the image speak for itself. A powerful cover will manifest/exude power.

    Also, kinda made me happy to see the names of 5 women running for President of the United States.

    'This is what power looks like in 2019'....cold, humourless and masculine? Interesting.

    It's certainly very innovative for US Marie Claire and I applaud the idea. I just wish the execution was more in line with their covers. Happy for Constance Wu who seems to get sidelined by Gemma Chan despite being the lead.

    Power in 2019 looks a lot like a funeral.

    Right? It's funny that magazines think they should dress women in black and/or a suit to show power. Make it feminism, but within the patriarchy.

    It's their first bad cover from this era, but I'm not really upset.

    True, actually. It still looks like a Forbes cover, but their recent content and covers are improving.

    I appreciate the sentiment behind the cover but they've gone veeeeeery literal here. POWER dressing, POWER posing - why does Constance have to have her leg cocked up on a chair? I've only ever seen men actually do that in real life and every single one looked absolutely ridiculous doing it. A miss for me I'm afraid.

    I'm all for feminism and have no problem with magazines championing this kind of coverline. However, a new premise or aesthetic needs to be explored because I found the incorporation of suits and all black as a sign of power to be tiresome. If they're going to make it this literal, they might as well have a man lying on the floor, being all tied up, ready to be stepped on by Constance Wu, instead of a chair. That would make it a lot more fun, campy, and interesting. And yes, I'm not kidding at all.

    In the famous words of a judge...

    "Its gonna be a no for me dawg."

    This subject is tired and pointless. Its time to stop.

    I’ve been rooting for American Marie Claire for months now, since I feel like they have stepped up their game immensely lately in terms of covers, subjects and design (and even bought the February issue with Penelope Cruz).

    This, however, is a total disappointment and a real setback of a cover for the magazine. It’s so... flat and lifeless (yes for The Hollywood Reporter comment, @TZ001). Maybe about the only time multi-covers wouldn’t have gone amiss!
