All the March 2020 Magazine Covers We Loved and Hated

Another month, another series of glossy covers. Since it’s March, most magazines are promoting their spring fashion issues with mixed results.

Who can we expect to see down at the newsstands?

While there wasn’t much in the way of diversity on the March 2020 covers, there were some unexpected cover stars. Like Jane Fonda (eye creases and all), a partially camouflaged Kylie Jenner and Billie Eilish, who was honored with four fantastic Vogue covers. Plenty of model covers dropped this month, though many were surprisingly underwhelming. And Emily Blunt landed multiple covers, but not all of them were well received by our forum members.

Spring has officially sprung.

When it came to fashion, a couple of magazines appear to support skipping spring and heading straight to summer. Other March 2020 covers favor more spring-friendly wardrobes, including season-appropriate coats and a fair share of florals. (It is springtime in the magazine world, after all.) There were even a few red carpet-worthy gowns. And one title dressed both its subjects in the exact same outfit for two different covers.

On the beauty front, red lips were practically a requirement. Vogue Japan opted to paint all six of its models’ pouts a striking ruby shade. Hell, ELLE Russia only featured a pair of perfectly stained and immediately identifiable crimson lips and the gap teeth that go with them.

Curious to see which publications impressed and which ones left us shaking our heads? Check out the slideshow above for a look at the best and worst March 2020 covers.
