Farrah Storr is making her mark on British ELLE after taking over the magazine back in April when Anne-Marie Curtis exited the role. Farrah kick-started her tenure with a Priyanka Chopra offering and made good use of an Angelina Jolie reprint last month. Now she’s serving up Cara Delevingne for October 2019 (a little over two years after the model/actress’ last appearance). Sasa Thomann dressed Cara up in head-to-toe Christian Dior (which makes sense since Cara is a Dior brand ambassador) for the Liz Collins-lensed cover.
Our forum members were pretty split. “Pretty! I like it. Cara’s recent works are very eye-pleasing. This could pass as a great Vogue cover,” admired fluxxx.
“I have to say I am very impressed. Cara’s work can sometimes be a bit hit or miss, but this is magnificent,” said [Piece Of Me].
“Oh what a difference hair length makes! I really hated her short hair, but now I’m back in love with her! Love everything about this. It’s simple and true, we’ve seen this almost exact cover for Vogue Paris, but that doesn’t make it any less pretty,” aracic chimed in.

But MON had a different take: “Vogue Paris copycat. Same model. Same backdrop. Same color scheme (black and red). Same look (with the hat). The new editor is flopping HARD for me.”
“Cover looks nice, but very dated. Like it was done under Lorraine [Candy]. Maybe it’s the art direction?” wondered an underwhelmed Benn98.
“Nice, but it’s always a pet peeve of mine whenever an art director removes the L from the ELLE masthead. How about you just crop/move the image better to accommodate the full masthead? This right here is a prime example of how it can make a cover look…disproportionate,” voiced vogue28.
