Allure is no stranger to the occasional misstep when it comes to cover concepts (we still can’t forget Allison Williams‘ washed-out cover last month). But this month, the beauty bible gets it oh-so-right with a stunning cover celebrating “the beauty of diversity.” Dilone, Imaan Hammam and Aamito Lagum lend their grace and beauty to the effortless image shot by master portrait photographer Patrick Demarchelier.
Members of our forums were in awe of the cover. “It’s crazy how Allure can go from the most horrible cover ever (March with Allison Williams) to this stunning cover… all three girls look absolutely beautiful and complement each other very well. I love the serene expression they have,” applauded sixtdaily.
“What Vogue should have looked like, this is gorgeous!” raved TREVOFASHIONISTO.
Thatsfierce shared the same sentiments. “Yes yes yes! I love it, this is way better than US Vogue, and I’m beyond glad Aamito is part of this! These three girls are amazing,” he wrote.
Apple agrees: “I’m in love with this! The cover is absolutely gorgeous, all the girls are amazing and… IMAAN! She is a stunner, a real queen, a star! I can’t stop looking at her. So good to see her on so many covers lately.”
“They’re all gorgeous! This is so fresh and awesome. Not looking forced at all – just natural and beautiful,” expressed happycanadian.
“What a beautiful cover! It’s immensely strong. The composition from dark to light works, and the fact that these girls have different strengths works for me. So happy for all three, especially Aamito, who is not a face you’d generally see on magazine covers,” pointed out Benn98.
“Wow! What a strong and absolutely gorgeous cover! I’m in love with this!” cooed SussyBela.
