Joan Smalls, Kate Upton and Emily Ratajkowski Each Land a Glamour Cover for October (Forum Buzz)

Models on the covers of mainstream fashion glossies are unfortunately a rarity nowadays, so you can imagine our delight whenever one turns up. Having already impressed with Bella Hadid‘s gorgeous cover last month, Glamour keeps the standard up for October with not one, but three models. Joan Smalls, Kate Upton and Emily Ratajkowski were each handed a solo cover, shot by Carter Smith. Who came out on top, you ask?

“So it’s back to back model covers for Glamour, which is quite impressive… Kate’s cover looks the best so far, but I like what Joan’s wearing. It has that effortless and approachable vibe which works for Glamour,” raved Benn98 the second the covers dropped.

“How wonderful to see them embracing more model covers, and I like all three actually. Would definitely pick up the Kate Upton one though. Glamour is doing great this year!” Miss Dalloway approved moments later.

Srdjan shared the same enthusiasm, declaring, “Models are the new celebrities! They are slowly making a comeback on fashion covers. Hopefully, we will witness a fair share between celebs and models appearing on glossies. Anyway, my favorite here is Kate, Emily looks weird and Joan’s outfit is messy.”

“Great package of covers! Although I don’t have anything against Emily and I even like her, I don’t really feel the cover. The other two are just lovely,” admired Katya.

In agreement over Emily’s cover was dodencebt: “I usually like Emily but like others have said, her cover is not really good. I think Joan looks best – her editorial is quite high fashion, and yet she gives off ‘approachable’ vibes. Also, Kate is even more beautiful than I remember.”
