If 2019 is anything to go by, 2020 is sure to be a brilliant year for InStyle and Laura Brown. In a bid to keep print alive, Brown has created an array of terrific covers over the last 12 months featuring the likes of Ciara, Julianne Moore and the cast of Big Little Lies. Starting the new decade off with a bang, InStyle jumps on the multi-cover bandwagon by giving its January covers to Salma Hayek, Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne. Shot by Robbie Fimmano and styled by Julia von Boehm, the stars of Like a Boss each land their own cover.
Our forum members loved the outcome. “WOW…I’m very surprised, beautiful covers!” declared DK92.
“I love the styling on Salma and Tiffany’s covers,” admired kokobombon.

“Very beautiful covers. I must admit that seeing Salma Hayek on the covers of magazines always makes me a little bit uncomfortable. No matter how serious the subject is, I always feel like she is doing her unofficial ambassador of Kering work,” Lola701 pointed out.
“All three are nice and very InStyle, but I wish Salma was more present in hers. It’s almost melancholic, while the other two have more sass. Maybe it has to do with the characters they represent in their new movie though, not sure,” commented dodencebt.
But the covers weren’t for everyone. “I am annoyed by all these multi-subject covers. Vogue, Marie Claire, now InStyle. It’s just annoying. I feel like it downgrades the cover subjects,” voiced AbbeyRoad.
“It’s all to create more digital ‘buzz’. Freshness, newness, more things to talk about. One cover landing on a newsstand is no longer enough. It’s a shame, but it’s the way it is now,” explained honeycombchild.
