Nina Garcia continues to keep up ELLE‘s tradition of issues dedicated to women. Now the magazine’s annual Women in Hollywood edition makes a grand return for 2021 following last year’s hiatus in favor of a Kamala Harris cover. This year’s lineup of A-list talent includes Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, Lauren Ridloff, Salma Hayek, Rita Moreno, Halle Berry, Jennifer Hudson, Jodie Comer along with Gal Gadot. The nine actresses each front solo covers complete with styling from Elizabeth Stewart and photography by Greg Williams for the November 2021 offering of ELLE.
Per usual with multiple covers, only a select few stood out. “Angelina doesn’t appear on covers. She blesses them,” heralded Horizontina.
“Only Angelina Jolie’s cover is working and it’s miles better than the other ones,” proclaimed VogueGirl8910.
“Angelina and Jodie for me,” stated kokobombon.

“Angelina is the clear standout for me, as always, and I’ll never complain about seeing Gemma…” declared [Piece Of Me].
“This photography is…not good. So amateurish, like what the hell is this lighting? Gemma’s cover is the only decent one,” Marc10 pointed out.
KINGofVERSAILLES was in the same frame of mind: “So they assemble this massive group, a truly impressive lineup of talented and beautiful women…and this is what they come up with? Astounding what passes for cover-worthy photography these days.”
“Not the worst set of covers I’ve come across, but undoubtedly could’ve been better and I detest how incoherent they are alongside one another, especially when only one photographer and stylist are involved,” critiqued vogue28.
