In a bid to win September, the fashion glossies are pulling out the big guns. Vogue scored Taylor Swift, Harper’s Bazaar bagged Alicia Keys and Marie Claire landed Cara Delevingne. Now ELLE reveals its secret weapon to win the month: Angelina Jolie. Angelina’s last notable appearance down at the newsstand was for Nina Garcia’s first issue of ELLE back in March 2018. The mega star once again photographs beautifully before the lens of Alexi Lubomirski looking radiant in Christian Dior for the warm and inviting cover shot styled by Elizabeth Stewart.
The cover was a hit with our forum members. “This is beautiful. I’m not a huge fan of Alexi, but this is a complete yes. Another issue of ELLE to add to my collection,” shared jorgepalomo the moment the cover dropped.
“I love Angelina and I am delighted to see her back on the cover again,” declared [Piece Of Me].
“You know where you are with Angelina Jolie. It’s going to be classic, it’s going to look beautiful,” pointed out tigerrouge.

“Very beautiful cover. Sometimes simple just works best,” noted justaguy.
In complete agreement was FashionMuseDior: “Angelina looks so beautiful! I agree that sometimes less is more and she didn’t need anything, just that face of hers.”
“You know what you get with Angelina…she’s very much in control of her image, but even with the creative restrictions in place you get great covers out of her,” stated Fiercification.
GivenchyHomme was also a fan. “It’s good. It’s how she looks now. It’s definitely a reflection of how she’s changed over the years. She’s not that sexual edgy woman anymore, she’s grown-up. My one critique is that they went overboard on the retouching, especially on her forehead.”
