Imaan Hammam Stars on WSJ. Magazine’s ‘Serene’ May 2022 Cover

Kristina O’Neill has a real knack for outshining other magazines like ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue. Since taking over WSJ. Magazine back in 2012, we’ve been given tons of utterly sublime covers featuring Doutzen Kroes, Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron, Gigi Hadid, Sofia Coppola, Reese Witherspoon, Regina King, Ashley Graham, Karlie Kloss…need we go on? The publication’s offering for May 2022 takes us to Sri Lanka where Imaan Hammam wears a bejeweled dress from Miu Miu’s Spring 2022 collection picked by Kate Phelan for the image photographed by Nadine Ijewere.

Although the mag’s latest divided our forums. “That is not a good image,” declared caioherrero the moment the cover dropped.

“The angle is weird on the cover. But my god, Imaan Hammam looks beautiful!” reasoned mikel.

“Great composition and location, but the hands and positioning ruined it,” critiqued Urban Stylin.

But not everyone is on the same page. “I like the composition of the cover, the hands look delicate and it’s a rather unusual angle. This green dress paired with the brown color of the boat and that landscape in the background… Simply stunning. Imaan looks gorgeous…” Valentine27 chimed in.

“Another ultra fabulous cover from WSJ. Magazine and there’s always cause for celebration when Imaan Hammam is made cover girl. Not one for Nadine Ijewere’s photography, but it’s beautiful here, I like the angles and the coloring. The cover image itself feels very calming and serene,” admired vogue28.

“Love stories that combine fashion and traveling!” exclaimed thiago:).

Meanwhile, versustito simply described the outcome as “amazing” and we could not agree more.
