V Magazine has undoubtedly lost its edge over recent years and the only two covers to capture our attention lately featured Lady Gaga and Bella Hadid. Following an underwhelming 20th anniversary celebration back in August, the magazine unveils its Winter 2019 installment starring the three actresses from the upcoming Charlie’s Angels remake: Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska. The trio huddle together in the Carin Backoff-shot cover, each wearing a crop top from Chanel and a pair of Guess blue jeans picked by Karen Langley.
But the cover was a big flop on our forums. “Crikey, what have they done to the flawless Naomi Scott? Everything is a miss, from the hair to the makeup to the styling,” ranted Benn98 the moment the cover dropped.
“Does anyone buy this magazine? This is pure trash now,” called out caioherrero.

“I like the idea of jeans with Chanel…but this is still a little too Glamour magazine for me,” said Xone.
Nomar was also quick to critique the styling: “They look like a bunch of rich teenagers trying to be edgy.”
MON wasn’t impressed by the cover shot, either. “What an utter disservice to the beauty of Naomi and Ella. They should have never extended the logo beyond their faces.”
“The Chanel tops paired with Guess jeans was a good call; teenagers will probably eat it right up just like they will this unnecessary remake,” commented dodencebt.
Forum member phungnam96 simply called the cover “basic.”
