Change is in the air over at Marie Claire and Aya Kanai‘s first issue is finally here. We’re all for seeing fresh faces on the covers of our favorite fashion glossies and the new editor in chief gives the covers of the magazine’s global beauty issue for May 2020 to Megan Thee Stallion. Serving up a pair of vintage-inspired covers, the American rapper, singer and songwriter poses before the lens of photographer Micaiah Carter with Megan decked out in Off-White for cover one (below) and a hooded Balmain number for cover two (after the jump) both picked by celebrity stylist Memsor.
The covers proved to be hit or miss for our forum members. “Megan looks stunning! Love the colors and definitely would not have thought this was shot by Micaiah Carter. Love how Marie Claire is adapting to the times by enlisting a black photographer,” applauded Benn98.
“The first one is cool — covers with profile photographs can be refreshing from time to time,” appreciated Srdjan.

“My fave is the first, love the use of the profile shot, the dress, those warm colors for a May cover and the minimal art direction. I loathe how the second cover looks more like an album cover…” vogue28 chimed in.
In the same frame of mind was KINGofVERSAILLES: “I love everything about this! Megan looks terrific and I love the color story and 70s feel of it all.”
“Getting vintage vibes from the colors to the photography and I quite like that,” echoed FashionMuseDior.
Zorka couldn’t disagree more. “Don’t know who she is, but the whole thing looks extremely tacky and cheap to me.”
“The graphic design is terrible,” exclaimed matheus_s.
