Nina Garcia’s ELLE is the gift that keeps on giving – officially. Throughout 2023 alone, the editor of the Hearst-owned American fashion glossy has bestowed upon us a whole plethora of ultra-fabulous covers. Those covers have given us Kaia Gerber, Gigi Hadid, Jenna Ortega, Megan Thee Stallion, Karol G, Imaan Hamman, Zendaya and we fell completely head over heels with last month’s Phoebe Dynevor offering.
The cover of the magazine’s November 2023 issue goes to Irina Shayk, who fresh from the cover of British Vogue poses before the lens of photographer Daniel Jackson. The Russian beauty proves less is always more in the minimalist and crisp cover image, kneeling on the floor of Jackson’s photographic studio, with stylist Alex White dressing the current face of Versace in head-to-toe Ferragamo, with a pair of Van Cleef & Arpels earrings and watch completing the cover look.
We’ll race you down to the newsstand for this one. “This is going to pop on the newsstands. I haven’t purchased a copy of American ELLE in ages but will be picking this up when I see it,” said Velasco.
“Love the cover and editorial. Irina looks HOT. Getting this issue for sure!” MModa echoed.
“American ELLE continues to eat Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar up. I really love how simple yet striking this is. Beautiful editorial as well,” raved crmsn.
In complete agreement was vogue28: “A 10/10 from me, and in all honesty I am not able go praise this cover enough. It was love at first sight. What a roll American ELLE has been on lately, this is just the icing on the cake and far outshines Harper’s Bazaar.”
“Typically not a big Irina fan, but I’m into this,” forum member KoV confessed.
“Fashion models on the covers of American fashion mags! Such a dream,” favored ivano.
