It’s not every single month that Town & Country takes our fancy. But over the last two years, we’ve been enthralled by covers featuring Jodie Comer, Kerry Washington and Sharon Stone. It’s also an extremely rare occasion when we encounter someone we haven’t just seen in the last six months. The magazine is definitely delivering this month by welcoming Selma Blair as its May 2021 cover star. The American actress looks utterly radiant in a showstopping Prabal Gurung look complete with jewelry from David Webb (courtesy of Elizabeth Stewart) for the cover shot captured by Alexi Lubomirski.
The outcome quickly generated buzz on our forums. “Town & Country has more fashion on its cover than the so-called fashion magazines. I really like this. And it’s nice to see Selma again,” applauded MyNameIs.
“At least one publication has a great sense of fashion still,” echoed conspicuousconsumer.
“It is quite a beautiful portrait and it’s nice seeing Selma! Love the contrast between the pink and the blue ring,” said aracic.

“I like it and I adore her. She’s such a beautiful soul,” admired oaklee91.
WAVES is also a fan: “It’s pretty and I’d say it’s a little more high fashion than usual for Town & Country.”
“Looking like a U.S. Harper’s Bazaar cover from 1987,” tigerrouge pointed out.
“Very much so…” replied vogue28. “Great to see Selma Blair on a magazine cover, I love the bold colors, the styling and sense of glamour, the cropping of the image and the layout of the cover lines. The ruffles are taking me back to Frida Giannini’s immaculate Gucci Spring 2013 collection. Zero complaints from me!”
FashionMuseDior described the cover as “beautiful” and we couldn’t agree more.
