It’s been a long time since Town & Country made us sit up and take notice. We’re talking back in April 2019 with the unveiling of its gorgeous Jodie Comer cover. Now the publication has our undivided attention once again thanks to Stellene Volandes’ superb choice of cover star for September 2020. Kerry Washington, who has a track record of spectacular magazine covers, stars on the mag’s latest issue in a lilac Cushnie creation selected by Law Roach. Kerry poses up against lush greenery for the stellar shot captured remotely by photographic duo AB+DM.
But the cover received mixed reviews. “A gorgeous cover — love the use of the lilac Cushnie dress against the greenery and how it complements Kerry’s skin tone. For me, this is a fail-safe cover image (the classic American Vogue type), which I find hard to criticize,” declared vogue28 the moment the cover dropped.
“Stunning cover, something I have missed seeing for a long time,” stated phungnam96.

“She is a beauty, but I don’t like the cover! Insane Photoshop!” Lola701 pointed out.
Also noticing signs of post-production was bluestar: “Kerry’s gorgeous, but the Photoshop is indeed a bit too harsh here…”
“A beautiful woman Photoshopped to death,” agreed RaisinBoy. “And what a sloppy job with the airbrushing. The matchy-matchy masthead and the out-of-touch headlines (seriously, who writes those?) only add to the tragedy.”
“Kerry is so beautiful and I actually like the styling, but something about the airbrushing and/or makeup has her looking not her best. Not terrible, but a wasted opportunity,” voiced KINGofVERSAILLES.
