Ever since InStyle‘s redesign in February, our forum members have declared their love for the magazine on a regular basis. Just about every cover has been an instant hit, but we didn’t know what to expect from new Editor-in-Chief Laura Brown (formerly of Harper’s Bazaar). The magazine’s November issue reveals that change is in the air — and not necessarily for the better. The sleek and polished design we’ve enjoyed for the past year appears to be replaced with dated fonts from the 00s and an overly airbrushed cover star (actress Emily Blunt).
Members of our forums saw the cover and wept. “Well I’m guessing the is the first cover with input from the Bazaar girl that took over from Ariel [Foxman] because it screams of US Bazaar tackiness,” exclaimed a far from overjoyed A.D.C, the second the cover dropped earlier today.
