Ever since she took over the helm of American ELLE again in 2018, our boards have had a newfound respect for Nina Garcia, partly because of the reality she’s revitalized the journal by delivering an entire host of A-list cowl stars (together with Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez and Michelle Obama). Garcia additionally gave ELLE its first transgender cowl star, Indya Moore. For the magazine’s August 2019 subject, Garcia picked Miley Cyrus for the quilt decked out in a glam rock look equipped by George Cortina and shot by Mario Sorrenti.
However our boards weren’t feeling it. “That’s it?” requested MON.
“The cover styling looks like something they’d use on Taylor Swift. In fact, Taylor Swift would probably inhabit this look with more confidence. Here, it’s just unappealing from start to finish,” critiqued Benn98.
“I’m so sad that Cortina is involved in this mess,” expressed a disapproving Lola701.

“Mario Sorrenti behind the lens and we get this? Disappointing to say the least, complete missed opportunity for something great — even with Miley Cyrus on the cover. The cover shot itself is completely lackluster, a nonevent and they need to seriously stop with the pink masthead already!” declared vogue28.
Purse Queen was additionally sad with the result: “Her hairstyle is making her look much older than she is.”
“They aged her 10 years with that hooker styling. I don’t expect much from Miley, but they could have done so much better with her,” famous GivenchyHomme.
“I have a soft spot for Miley, but not soft enough to tolerate this,” confessed KissMiss.
SLFC felt the identical method: “This is lazy and boring. ELLE had a good run this year. I guess every month can’t be expected to be good.”
