Out of all the mainstream fashion glossies, our forums have been the hardest on Glamour over the past year, thanks to a disastrous redesign and awful covers featuring Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Tiffany Haddish (to name a few victims). Editor-in-chief Samantha Barry closes out the year with a series of ‘Women of the Year‘ covers featuring Viola Davis, Janelle Monae, Chrissy Teigen and the ladies of the March for Our Lives movement for the recently unveiled December issue.
Per usual with multi-covers, one was sure to stand out. “ANNA [Wintour] you could have had THAT COVER! Stunning Viola! Stunning!” applauded tFS forum member MON with a clear favorite.
“Viola looks stunning! and yes, it should have been on Vogue,” agreed magsaddict.
“Viola looking like a true queen she is. What a tremendous woman of beauty, wit and talent. That is truly a glamorous cover. I wish Vogue could have done that,” TaylorBinque agreed.

Sharing the same enthusiasm toward Viola’s cover was forum member dodencebt: “Agreed that Viola’s cover would be perfect for American Vogue. It takes me straight back to those early aughts full-body shot covers.”
Benn98 was quick to comment, “Viola and Janelle’s covers are quite frankly Glamour‘s best not only under Samantha’s tenure! The Viola one especially, can only imagine how much more powerful it would have been for Vogue. The first one could work for TeenVogue, but with better styling. And I’m not sure what Chrissy Teigen is doing in this lineup. Absolutely unnecessary and such an insufferable woman.”
“Janelle and Viola’s covers are beautiful!” championed jorgepalomo.
