One Elle Of A Cover

The new Elle is out and I just can't understand the Editor's choice of cover. Surely the specially designed cover by Matthew Williamson is much better than a half dressed Alexa Chung staring at you (I estimate about half of the male population disagree with me on that one but thats what Nuts magazine is for) ? The one by Luella isn't bad either but not liking the pale grey background, not really sure whats going on in the Giles one and Gareth Pugh's must have taken a whole 5 minutes, plus it makes your eyes go funny is you stare at it too long. At least he did stay true to his black & white/geometric theme but "NOW"? Maybe he was going for the "NO" Viktor & Rolf look?

Anyways covers aside, the inside is pretty decent. Love the "My London" bit on page 336 where celebrities such as Alexa Chung (of course), Henry Holland and Roksanda Ilincic tell us their favourite spots in London, what they love/hate about it and if you're a big enough fan they even tell you where their studios are, so you can try to "accidentally" bump into (stalk) them.
