By now we’re pretty used to ELLE using one major cover star across its international editions for the exact same issue. Back in April we were treated to multiple Taylor Swift covers and then there were the several Selena Gomez offerings for October 2018. Following in their footsteps is none other than Angelina Jolie, fresh from her American ELLE appearance the star now graces the British edition for September 2019. One again captured by photographer Alexi Lubomirski and styled by Elizabeth Stewart, Angelina wears Stella McCartney in the welcoming cover shot.
Our forum members sounded off on their favorite. “U.S. edition for the win,” declared jorgepalomo.
“Too much text, ain’t no one reading all of those cover lines. The U.S. edition’s cover is way better than this, never thought I would say that, but there you go,” called out slayage.

“Couldn’t they add any more text?” asked a sarcastic Srdjan.
“Colors are too muted and her pout looks forced. I suppose Angelina’s team had a hand in the styling because it’s way too understated for September. And could it look any more like a mid-00s cover of American ELLE if it tried?” wondered an underwhelmed Benn98.
Although not everyone was left unsatisfied. “Quite casual, but I like it,” confessed KissMiss.
In the same frame of mind was vogue28: “Quite fond of this (prefer it to the American edition at least), can appreciate how straight-on the cover shot is and I like the tame styling for a September cover. Almost reminiscent of British Harper’s Bazaar covers, which I’m not mad at.”
