It’s starting to feel like almost every single edition of U.K. ELLE is a feminist issue and, quite frankly, we’re starting to feel like it’s the most overused word in fashion right now. As reported on our forums a few days ago, Carey Mulligan is ELLE‘s November cover star to coincide with the release of Suffragette. The British actress was photographed by Kerry Hallihan wearing a rather unattractive getup as she leans forward giving us some major badass, all-business vibes.
Yet the cover fell completely flat for our forum members. “This is a whole new level of boring,” stated KateTheGreatest immediately.
“She looks very tired and what a bad outfit!” exclaimed gossiping soon after.
Also not feeling it was justaguy, saying, “Poorly styled and Carey looks bored.” Jal718 quickly added, “That’s horrible!”
Lavieenrose shared the same underwhelming sentiments: “Is this the 30th anniversary issue (the 1st one was November 1985)? If so, that’s a lot of ho-hum.”
“I don’t like that it’s the feminism issue and they styled her with a pantsuit,” questioned an unimpressed kokobombon.
“Personally I don’t see the problem with pants for this cover. I do however feel like the last ‘feminism’ issue cover and feature was almost devoid of actual ‘fashion’. Not particularly impressed with the underlying message there. But let’s see what Carey’s feature will look like,” anticipated Benn98.
Thankfully for us, Carey’s cover story just dropped earlier today. Check it out and join the conversation here.
