Our forums don’t usually pay attention to Cosmopolitan and the thread stays pretty dormant for weeks. But our dedicated Cosmopolitan – Worldwide thread soon became active earlier today as the title’s November edition features some well-known TV personalities (take three guesses…). In a move that should surprise no one, all the Kardashian/Jenner women (sans Caitlyn) pose together in an exclusive portrait image, which has our members throwing opinions left, right and center. Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie each wear crisp white shirts before the lens of Francesco Carrozzini, joining their mother Kris Jenner for Cosmo‘s celebratory 50th-anniversary issue.
As we should expect by now, forum members continued to show shade at the family and Cosmo‘s efforts. “When will their 15 minutes finally be up? I’m beyond tired of seeing them everywhere, all the time. Also, the cover really looks like a Glamour cover,” criticized KateTheGreatest.
“Wow that looks like a Glamour cover,” MON said, in agreement.
“No no, an OLD Glamour cover! The new Glamour consulted by Anna [Wintour] would never turn out such crap. I’m not mad because it’s the Kardashians, after all, Joanna Coles has been their most staunch supporter (Kendall, Kourtney and her mum aside, the rest all had an OG cover). Coles seems to be deviating further and further away from the brand’s DNA. Is this Francesco’s first cover for them? It’s devoid of, well, everything,” responded Benn98.
A.D.C. wasn’t buying it either, adding, “I don’t like all these random changes Joanna is doing with Cosmo. It just doesn’t feel authentic to me. I don’t know why magazine editors think straying so far from a magazine’s glory days is ever a good idea. In this case, I’m referring to the Scavullo/Helen Gurley Brown era of course.”
Also quick to voice his view was ThatGuyPaul. “I think Khloe looks the best! Kim and Kris after her. The other three looks tired (Kylie), bored (Kendall & Kourtney),” shedding a glimpse of light onto the cover.
We’re expecting some more images to follow. Await the content and join the conversation here.
