Since Karlie Kloss looks barely recognizable on W Korea, it’s a delight to see a natural and effortless cover from Allure this month. The magazine has been doing pretty well for itself lately and managed to serve up Kylie Jenner for its August offering. Now moving on to September, Jessica Alba makes a return to the magazine’s front cover exactly one year after her last. Having recently impressed on the cover of InStyle back in July, Jessica has photographed beautifully once again in this dreamy cover shoot lensed by Will Davidson.
But our forum members can’t help but feel they’ve seen it all before. “She looks really beautiful, as always. Not the most exciting cover I’ve ever seen, but by Allure standards it’s quite good,” KINGofVERSAILLES chimed in.
Echoing the same attitude was A.D.C.: “I wonder if Jessica gets photo approval for her covers? As beautiful as she is they always have the same kind of blandness like she demands to play it safe which would make sense for her brand I guess.”
“If it wasn’t for the title I wouldn’t have instantly recognized her; she looks a bit like Jennifer Garner in this light. On the positive side, the cover is beautiful and serene. Probably a bit too beige, but the red masthead and gold jewelry kind of breaks it up,” acknowledged dodencebt.
Bertrando3 felt the same way, sharing, “I absolutely agree with you, I had the same thought too: very Jennifer Garner and she looks stunning here, love the color combination actually. I love beige anyways so for me it’s actually positive.” He then went on to say, “Yes, in fact Jessica Alba has had better covers but Allure has grown on me over the years and got better, just like SELF for example, so here is another good one for them.”
“Comparing this to their 2015 cover, you can see how much they’ve grown. I like it. Though I agree with the Garner comment,” MON added.
“She looks lovely and this cover is so gorgeous,” raved Katya.
