Marie Claire has been at the top of our must-see list lately. It’s all thanks to a range of ravishing covers starring Gisele Bündchen, Megan Thee Stallion, Dakota Johnson and Janet Mock. So we were disappointed to hear that Aya Kanai is cutting ties with the American title after only a few short months. (Sally Holmes has been named as her replacement.) For the mag’s Fall 2020 edition, Chrissy Teigen serves as cover star returning following a three-year hiatus. Photographed decked out in a look from Balmain’s Fall 2020 collection, the author and entrepreneur reclines on a tree for the cover shot snapped by Lauren Dukoff.
It seems Marie Claire‘s winning streak has come to an end. “She’s swimming in that dress, it looks quite unflattering,” critiqued KINGofVERSAILLES.
“Does anyone care about her or the U.S. edition of Marie Claire in late 2020?” asked Srdjan.
“Marie Claire and Chrissy Teigen. Name a more irrelevant duo,” scoffed MyNameIs.

The cover also missed the mark for vogue28: “I have been a great admirer of American Marie Claire of late, but this is extremely amateur — everything from the photography to the styling is a disappointment. I understand times and resources are hard right now, but there’s just nothing eventful or tolerable here. A total miss.”
“Same here,” replied Benn98. “There’s nothing remotely good about this cover though. The tent she’s wearing, the pose. I’m already not a fan of hers and now the cover looks so appalling.”
“Supermodel Chrissy Teigen is killing it! Said no one. Ever,” added jorgepalomo.
“Not a bad cover for Marie Claire IMO. If only she was lying on the trunk and the dress was flowing, but it’s the pandemic so as long as it’s not a drawing or a selfie, I’m OK with it,” wrote kokobombon.
