V Magazine Encourages Readers to Vote With Its Winter 2020 Covers

V Magazine is definitely back on our radar for all the right reasons. Over recent months, the publication has given us a supermodel spectacular for Summer 2020 and Laura Harrier for Fall 2020. Now the mag is encouraging its U.S. readers to vote with the unveiling of its Winter 2020 edition. The series of black and white covers feature Bella Hadid, Chris Evans, Halsey, Jaden Smith, Janaya Future Khan, Janelle Monáe, Jennifer Lawrence, Julianne Moore, Mariah Carey, Megan Rapinoe, Paperboy Prince and Taylor Swift all profiled by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

As usual with multi-covers, only a few really stand out. “Even though Bella will never be my favorite, and she is by no means in any way a thought leader, hers is quite a gorgeous cover,” confessed mikel.

“There’s no denying that black and white portraits are Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin’s superpower and these are beautiful. The shots of Jennifer Lawrence, Julianne Moore and Bella Hadid are my favorites,” voiced vavavinny.

“Wow, Bella Hadid’s cover is gorgeous and the only one if any of these I’ll be purchasing,” shared Ghesquiere32.

“Bella’s cover looks nice and I like how they cleverly turned their logo into the word vote,” Urban Stylin chimed in.

Also liking what they saw was aracic: “Such a great set of covers with so many great stars (and many personal faves)…”

“My favorite is Janelle Monáe, she really uplifts the whole mood, followed by Bella, Chris and Mariah,” commented FashionMuseDior.

Not everyone was happy with the covers, though. “I’m sorry, half these people are not ‘thought leaders’ and make this cringe-worthy,” called out BlueRuin.

“Most of these people are not who I would consider thought leaders,” agreed Mercury6181.
