Nina Garcia loves putting musicians on the cover of ELLE. We’ve already encountered the likes of Dua Lipa, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton, Lizzo and others on the cover of the American glossy over the last year. Now it’s Rosalía’s turn with the Spanish songstress starring on a pair of Zoey Grossman-shot covers for the magazine’s special double edition for Summer 2020. For cover one (below), Rosalía sports a floral Collina Strada number picked by Natasha Royt, while on cover two (after the jump) the singer wears a piece from the 4 Moncler Simone Rocha collection.
Members of our forums weren’t exactly jumping for joy over the two covers. “Not the type of outfits I want to see on a newsstand during the hot summer months. Also, not interested in the cover subject,” commented Srdjan.
“Would’ve liked more neck in the second cover, but it’s definitely superior to the floral one. If you zoom in a little, you’ve got yourself an i-D cover!” aracic pointed out.

“Business as usual for Hearst magazines I see. This is OK,” approved MON.
“I like the photos and I’m pleasantly surprised they chose her since she’s not gotten many covers yet. Maybe three months on newsstands will help boost her profile? As of now, her actual popularity certainly does not match her hype…” said KINGofVERSAILLES.
“Even after Rosalía’s cover appearance on Vogue Spain, I’m still none the wiser as to who she is and have yet to listen to her music. Yet I do understand Rosalía is a rising star and obviously warrants these covers. However, neither of these two covers do it for me. Meh,” added vogue28.
“Finally a magazine that has done her justice; she looked like a corpse on Vogue Spain, it was painful to see,” noted dodencebt.
