On the earth of magazines, January is the quietest month on the calendar, however given the very fact we’re heading into a complete new decade, our favourite style glossies appear to be pulling out all of the stops with celebrity cowl stars. There was Taylor Swift on British Vogue, a complete of 4 cowl stars on American Vogue and now ELLE picks none aside from Beyoncé to entrance its January 2020 problem. A significant coup for Nina Garcia (who has been doing an excellent job this 12 months), Beyoncé takes the chance to point out off her new Ivy Park collaboration on two distinctive covers, each photographed by Melina Matsoukas and styled by Karen Langley.
However each covers proved to be whole flops on our boards. “The nerve to put Beyoncé on January. This cover is meh,” declared MON.
“I love Beyoncé, but I don’t care about her not playing the game of magazines. Her forced, serious and static visuals, the Lemonade aesthetic. Fashion is fun and she is sucking the life out of it… I miss when she played the game,” commented Lola701.

“Nothing works on the covers. And this must be the worst styling I’ve seen in some time. Definitely on her and not ELLE, this is not Nina’s style. Pity Nina sat on this for so long because maybe if it was dropped sooner it would have trended, but I doubt it will. Just as well it’s a January cover. Will be forgotten as soon as the next cover drops,” Benn98 chimed in.
“First cover is horrific. Can’t believe it made the cut. Still sick of Beyoncé,” ranted Purse Queen.
Discussion board member caioherrero agreed: “I’m so tired of Beyoncé and that blasé face. She used to be so fun, now is so boring.”
Nomar wasn’t precisely leaping for pleasure, both. “Well I immediately saw that Ivy Park logo and rolled my eyes. No thanks.”
