While i-D isn’t the magazine it once was, things are starting to look up for the publication now that Alastair McKimm is at the helm. We went through all of 2019 without a single cover making waves on our forums, but i-D‘s first offering of 2020 has caught our attention. For “The Icons and Idols Issue,” the mag is giving us six covers to choose from down at the newsstand. There’s Kate Moss by Mario Sorrenti, Adut Akech by Daniel Jackson, Rianne Van Rompaey by Alasdair McLellan, Gigi Hadid by Jamie Hawkesworth, Binx Walton by Oliver Hadlee Pearch and Kaia Gerber by Willy Vanderperre. What more could we possibly ask for?
The covers immediately sparked debate on our forums. “Iconic Kate! Kate does everything right, even when she does it wrong. The ultimate model/muse,” said MissMagAddict.
“Not her strongest cover for i-D, but you simply can’t go wrong with Kate,” agreed aracic.

“I do love the all-black outfit next to the vibrant blue skies and ocean backdrop. Kate Moss is always a good idea!” echoed vogue28.
“Jamie Hawkesworth can never do any wrong! Gigi’s cover is way better than Kate’s IMO,” declared blusheels.
Also quick to praise their favorite was mikel: “OMG! Love the Adut cover!”
“Loving all the covers so far!” guimon chimed in.
“Well they aren’t lying, this is ‘The Icons and Idols Issue’ and I love all of it. Definitely buying this one…” raved SLFC.
