It’s about time for those Beyoncé covers of ELLE to take a bow from newsstands worldwide and the British edition of is one of the first to unveil its new installment. The magazine failed to make an impression with its reprint last month and hasn’t really pulled out all the stops since that Kylie Jenner cover back in February. But that has all changed with the release of its June 2016 cover. In comes French actress Léa Seydoux wearing Louis Vuitton (obvs) and commanding our attention with an intense stare in the image shot by photographer Kai Z Feng.
Members of our forums fell head over heels for ELLE‘s latest. “One of their best covers in quite some time for me,” praised honeycombchild straight away.
“Oh wow, she’s certainly taking charge of this pose! Love her stare, finally something which will catch your eye on the newsstand. And the lavender backdrop actually works well this time around,” raved Benn98.
Also equally impressed with the outcome was KissMiss, exclaiming, “WOW! The cover is sooooo good! I love it!”
Forum member justaguy was in the same frame of mind, championing, “Great cover shot of Léa and loving that pose!”
“I’m loving this cover!! I really do like Léa. She’s bringing sex appeal without showing any skin,” commended RanThe.
“What a surprise to see her on British ELLE. A must-have!” declared Srdjan, showing just as much enthusiasm as everyone else.
Sharing the same attitude was Cosmic Voices: “Applause for ELLE U.K., this cover is amazing!”
“Love it. This might be the best that Léa has ever looked,” MyNameIs announced.
