While Marie Claire may not be our go-to fashion glossy right now, the magazine manages to secure big names, with the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Priyanka Chopra and Gal Gadot gracing covers this year. For July 2017, a demure and elegant looking Chrissy Teigen wears Gucci in the great outdoors for Marie Claire‘s first-ever wellness issue, photographed by Michelangelo di Battista.
Our forum members liked what they saw on the cover. “Wow, I like this! They may have gone for a very busy dress yet again, but the setting and ease of it all more than makes up for it. A very interesting yet different cover for US Marie Claire. Not a fan of Chrissy Teigen though. How she’s managed to get all these covers with no tangible career is beyond me,” said Benn98.
“I’m wondering the same. I only know her for her Sports Illustrated work and I ask myself is she even relevant, but I guess the U.S. readers like her. Anyway, it’s an OK cover to me. Nice execution but nothing much,” replied badgalcrush.
Forum members A.D.C fired back, saying, “This is 2017. Social media is a career whether we like to admit or not. Even though I find her annoying I still prefer her to any of the boring crop of new actresses. There’s a reason the Brie Larsons and Alicia Vikanders haven’t replaced Reese, Gwyneth, Nicole, etc. They arouse zero public interest despite their Oscars!”
“Lovely photo!” confessed DutchHomme.
Magdaddict added, “I don’t mind this! They’ve made Chrissy look quite demure, which is an achievement considering the dress they’ve put her in. Sure, she doesn’t have a modeling career in the traditional sense, but she’s far from being a dull interview, and there’s certainly plenty of those each month in Marie Claire.”
“She looks amazing. I have her cookbook and the potato salad recipe is off the hook,” praised MissMagAddict.
