Aya Kanai continues to make big moves over at Marie Claire by steering the magazine in the right direction following Anne Fulenwider’s sudden departure. Kanai’s first cover featured forum favorite Gisele Bündchen followed by an equally gorgeous Megan Thee Stallion installment. As a result of the pandemic, Marie Claire doubled up for June and July with Dakota Johnson serving as cover star. Now Janet Mock stars on the publication’s cover for its inaugural digital edition for August 2020. The American writer, director and activist wears a jacket and sweater from Hugo Boss teamed with a pair of statement Balmain earrings for the utterly gorgeous cover image captured by Luke Gilford.
Members of our forums could barely believe their eyes. “YASSSSS!!!!!” exclaimed mikel.
“Oh, wow! This is completely stunning. Must admit I’m positively surprised by all this. Great job!” applauded aracic.
“It’s rare to see a cover star give that much emotion! At first I didn’t know what to think, but I like it! There’s a sense of sadness/melancholia in her eyes that I find very touching. She looks great! She is very beautiful!” proclaimed Lola701.

“I love this, purely for how warm and engaging the cover image is — those colors are gorgeous and I love the statement earrings. Not to mention how refreshing a cover subject Janet Mock is. Major kudos to Aya Kanai over this!” raved vogue28.
“So happy to see her on the cover, sadly it’s not her best photo. This woman can photograph so well, and wear high fashion, so it is kind of a letdown they used this,” commented Miss Dalloway.
MON described the cover as “stunning” and we couldn’t agree more.
