While we’re waiting in suspense for Edward Enninful‘s first issue of British Vogue to drop next month, the magazine continues to power through with the newly unveiled November 2017 cover featuring Claire Foy. Our forum members knew just what to expect from Claire’s debut Vogue appearance, having taken an exclusive first look at two prospective cover options back in August. The magazine ultimately went with the full-body shot of Claire, making a bold departure from its usual covers, with the star of The Crown wearing a blush pink Christian Siriano gown, shot by Craig McDean and styled by Kate Phelan.
The cover didn’t go down too well on our forums. “I like the cover and the color scheme and at least it’s notably glamorous. Something which Alexandra [Shulman] rarely bothered with. But they couldn’t get a shot where she’s making direct eye contact? Surely McDean must’ve had a variation of this shot,” quipped Benn98.
