Hailey Baldwin made the cover of American ELLE back in May and recently topped Maxim‘s Hot 100 list last month (scoring the title’s June/July 2017 cover in the process). Now, she crosses the pond and adds a cover appearance for British ELLE to her solid portfolio of work. Photographed by Gilles Bensimon, the American beauty dons a leather Coach jacket, styled by Anne-Marie Curtis.
Forum member Benn98 commented moments after the cover was revealed earlier today. “Wow, she’s really rising up! The cover looks fine for ELLE, and I think she looks beautiful here. The rich colors are more suited to autumn though. Also, not overfond of the styling, which looks more like her candid style than anything else,” he noted.
“Surprisingly, I really like this! It’s a great cover for ELLE. The styling isn’t very appropriate though,” echoed forum member apple.
Badgalcrush felt the same, saying, “It’s a July cover, so why no swimsuit or summery styling? But this would be a perfect October cover! It works, but Hailey’s facial expression is not good at all. Another model with all that combination would have been really good.”
“I like everything here, think it’s a great cover for British ELLE and finally a cover (and cover subject) which feels fresh and relevant to what’s happening in 2017! Kudos to Gilles Bensimon and the rest of the team for photographing Hailey beautifully. She looks fantastic and I love the beret. A thumbs up from me!” vogue28 approved.
