Yet another month has passed where Kim Kardashian isn’t on the cover of British Vogue (we must be losing our touch at guessing cover stars). Instead, the magazine has selected someone who has never graced the cover before. With a successful American Vogue cover appearance under her belt, Alicia Vikander takes to the title’s UK cover for August 2016. The Swedish actress was shot by Alasdair McLellan in the rare sunshine at the English shore, wearing Louis Vuitton while showing off an enviable glowing complexion.
Surprisingly, the cover seemed to leave the majority underwhelmed. “This is a lovely surprise considering the speculations that it’s probably Kim [Kardashian] on the cover. I like it, very fresh and summery, even though Alicia doesn’t convey much emotion in print,” wrote dodencebt the second the cover dropped.
