ELLE‘s recent covers have been generating plenty of buzz, including last month’s issue featuring the lovely Bella Hadid. Now the glossy has dedicated its July 2016 edition to women in comedy — a first for the American title — starring the cast of Ghostbusters, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon on four different covers photographed by Mark Seliger. Needless to say, our forums were pleased as punch.
“I actually really like this concept and the four covers. I wish Kristen’s pose was a little more natural, but other than that, I like all four,” approved honeycombchild the moment the covers came to light, setting the tone for comments to come.
“Kristen’s cover is the best of the lot. Yet again Melissa’s cover had so much potential, but of course they had to go with a close up. Regardless, I think hers will be the most popular,” assessed Benn98.
Also quick to select their favorite was MON: “Melissa. I’m sold. The overall vibe is typical ELLE: The background… the text. Nothing special. But Melissa!!”
“I’m glad they did Leslie Jones right, she looks gorgeous!” raved a delighted Marc10.
“ELLE did well! I’m glad they didn’t hide Leslie in a loose trench or something; she looks awesome,” agreed t-rex.
Expressing the same enthusiasm was ThatGuyPaul, applauding, “Represent. This is great. Love all four of these girls, can’t wait for Ghostbusters.”
LastNight felt the same way, echoing, “Love this! All four ladies look great, it’s fun and energetic and it’s so great to see some new faces on fashion magazine covers.”
“WOW, I love it! The energy is so right for ELLE. Everything is so fresh, fun and chic. It has been about ten months since I bought the mag, but I will this month!” announced a more than satisfied whitewine92.
