All the October 2021 Magazine Covers We Loved and Hated
The September covers have come and gone. While September is often billed as the most important issue of the year, we’re big fans of what follows. In other words, the October issues. Thankfully, the October 2021 magazine covers offered plenty to fawn over.
We hope you love Anya Taylor-Joy. Because she’s literally everywhere. Just this month the actress pops up on Vogue Spain, Vogue Mexico, InStyle and Tatler. We’re also treated to magazine cover staples. Think Regina King, Jennifer Aniston, Zendaya and Nicole Kidman. Although not every appearance earned raves this time around.
When it comes to diversity, it could’ve been better. But we’re ecstatic to see Michaela Coel land the cover of ELLE U.K. (We’re just waiting for a much-deserved Vogue cover.)

A good mix of summer and fall.
The full body shot and composition just aren’t working for us here.
The ombre background isn’t doing this cover any favors.
