Dakota Johnson Stars on Marie Claire’s Summer 2020 Cover

All eyes have been on American Marie Claire of late now that Aya Kanai is officially at the helm. Kanai seems to have settled into the new role nicely having kick-started her tenure with a pair of Gisele Bündchen covers and delivered Megan Thee Stallion last month. Dakota Johnson is Kanai’s latest cover conquest as the actress stars on the mag’s Summer 2020 issue photographed by Steven Pan. Taking a break from reading a good book, she sports a look from Fendi’s Pre-Fall 2020 collection for the cover image.

Members of our forums were divided over the cover. “I like the concept and the cropping of the image because it’s not something we normally see on covers. Someone lounging reading a book. Everything else is really quite offensive. The cheap-looking wig, the ‘styling’ and that new aggressive font,” declared Benn98.

“Did she style this herself because of the lockdown and make a dress out of a duvet?” asked mikel.

“Just no. But mostly no because of the awful fonts,” Srdjan called out.

“I actually don’t hate the font or color scheme, but whose face is that? I thought fashion had evolved past the point of Photoshopping beyond recognition. It’s a pass from me,” said Annie Hall.

“I love this!” disagreed Handbag Queen.

Forum member vogue28 shared the same sentiment: “Always been partial to Dakota Johnson and certainly don’t think this is the worst magazine cover I’ve seen her on. The colors are nice for a summer cover and I’m quite fond of the styling and whole setup, which I find even more fitting considering most of us are at home right now.”
