All of the July 2021 Magazine Covers We Loved and Hated
It’s officially summer. But you wouldn’t know it judging by the styling on the majority of the July 2021 covers. From black blazers to one elaborate coat, you’d think we were smack in the middle of fall.
The beauty is also off. There’s plenty of season-inappropriate makeup. We’re talking red lips and strong cat eyes. Although, there are a fair share of wet-hair looks.
On the positive side, there’s a decent amount of diversity. Alva Claire strikes a pose for ELLE U.K., Salma Hayek appears on InStyle and Indira Scott pops up on Vogue China. Plus, activist Malala Yousafzai is celebrated by British Vogue. We’re also thrilled to see Shakira finally land a Vogue cover.

Way too much text and don’t get us started on the fonts.
