Allure has had a terrific year thus far (major staff changes aside) and the magazine continues to steam ahead with newfound confidence. The American beauty bible has managed to secure girls-of-the-moment Bella Hadid and Kylie Jenner for recent covers and served up a pixel-perfect cover featuring Jessica Alba last month. Now, sure to gain even more momentum, Allure scored none other than Kendall Jenner for October — this month’s unparalleled must-have cover girl. Yes, you’re about to see a whole lot more of Kendall at the newsstand (since she’s got three major Vogue covers this month) as she returns to the cover of Allure, photographed by Patrick Demarchelier.
Members of our forums couldn’t hold their tongues for long. “That boring face again,” sighed a disapproving liberty33rlb the moment the cover struck.
“Allure‘s got to keep itself alive by any means. An awkward cover shot to match the awkward cover line. I get this magazine every month and I don’t mind what the new editor is doing, because she hasn’t shifted radically from the formula that Linda Wells created, but still, it often feels like there’s a wind blowing through the magazine, because there’s an empty sense to the pages, so I’m giving it until the end of the year before I abandon the title,” stated tigerrogue.
Also not exactly jumping for joy was Benn98, asking, “Hhmm… looks like her left boob is trying to steer into the opposite direction? I like only the styling here, everything else is exceptionally bad. The weird cropping and all that space, Kendall’s expression, and the fact that the cover looks downright amateur! A complete non-event! Why is Kendall getting all these covers, and all of them seemingly related to Anna Wintour?” he questioned.
DutchHomme pointed out: “Lots of covers for Kendall.. almost everyday a new cover!”
