Florence Pugh Deserves Better Than British ELLE’s ‘Drab and Uninspiring’ June 2020 Cover

We struck gold last month when British ELLE tapped supermodel Claudia Schiffer as its cover subject putting the magazine immediately in our forum members’ good graces. This month we’re presented with Florence Pugh for June 2020 with the star taking to the title’s front cover before the lens of photographer Liz Collins. The Black Widow actress strikes a pose in a ruffled dress from Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2020 collection chosen by stylist Aurelia Donaldson.

But were our forum members a happy bunch? “Really unflattering cover photo!” called out GERGIN at once.

“Florence is a beauty, but this is so drab and uninspiring,” ForTheImage chimed in.

“Most people don’t have access to a hairdresser, but they do own a hairbrush, which means they’re likely to look better than this cover does,” proclaimed tigerrouge.

Urban Stylin wasn’t feeling the outcome, either. “She’s beautiful, but that’s a rather basic cover…”

“It’s a pretty cover because Florence is pretty, but the shortness of her arm annoys me,” stated Srdjan.

“Much preferred Florence’s cover of U.S. Vogue as opposed to this and think British ELLE and Liz Collins have produced some very unflattering photos here. The styling is atrocious…” added vogue28.

“Drab and lifeless” was how jal718 described the cover, but do you agree?
