It’s safe to say that i-D is firmly back on our radar. It’s all thanks to Alastair McKimm and his impressive knack for appealing to different tastes with a multitude of covers. The cutting-edge British publication’s Spring 2021 offering had us tracking down a spectacular Naomi Campbell cover. Now i-D‘s Summer 2021 installment supplies even more collectible covers. This time featuring Gigi Hadid by Daniel Jackson, Precious Lee by Tyler Mitchell, Phil Foden by Alasdair McLellan, Celina Ralph by Mario Sorrenti, Jatavia Johnson (JT) and Caresha Brownlee (Yung Miami) of City Girls by Gray Sorrenti, Binx Walton by Stef Mitchell and Digga D by Liz Johnson Artur.
“Looks like she got something stuck in her eye,” said GERGIN upon seeing Gigi’s cover.
“I’m not quite sure where all this negativity is coming from. I for one enjoyed this story, the simple portraits bring out Gigi’s beauty and she looks great here. I always love a good black-and-white studio session,” raved aracic.

“Out of all the seven covers, Gigi Hadid’s is the one I like most — always been a Daniel Jackson fan, love the styling and the use of black and white. Gigi’s cover is guaranteed to grab your attention at the newsstand and pretty confident Precious Lee’s cover will do so also,” approved vogue28.
“I really like Precious’ cover, but that wink is reading more like a lazy eye from that far away. I think i-D should just stick with close-ups,” noted marsnoop2.
“Binx is looking so f*cking good,” proclaimed helmutnotdead.
“Well, that’s the best I think I’ve seen Binx look…maybe ever?” dior_couture1245 chimed in.
