Over recent weeks we’ve witnessed the industry’s response to the pandemic. Vogue Italia went blank, American Vogue published a previously unpublished portrait and British Harper’s Bazaar asked Ashley Graham’s husband to snap pictures of the model for its covers. InStyle is following suit with the magazine welcoming Alicia Keys as its July 2020 cover star. Her husband and two children picked up cameras capturing the singer/songwriter looking radiant at home for the newsstand cover (below) and basking in the Southern California sun for the subscribers’ alternative (after the jump).
The covers absolutely took our forum members by surprise. “It’s hilarious that her sons can produce a better cover than half of today’s working ‘photographers’. It’s got a nice vibe to it…” admired dodencebt.
“I love how beautiful she looks in both covers, that first one is really nice,” praised Miss Dalloway.

“Had we not been going through a lockdown, I would never have guessed the newsstand cover was photographed by two children as opposed to professionals. It’s a beautiful image, very fresh and vibrant. Those bright orange and pink fonts complement the shot beautifully,” raved vogue28.
TaylorBinque was also a fan: “Alicia is beautiful and actually I don’t mind the little makeup here. I sort of wish the newsstand cover had a little more fashion quality, but both look better than a lot of magazines right now.”
“She looks absolutely glorious in both covers,” proclaimed [Piece Of Me].
“I really like the subscribers’ cover. The newsstand one is not too bad, either,” Yohji chimed in.
