Our forum members have been busy speculating just who would front British Vogue’s December 2020 issue. Adele, Beyoncé and Kylie Minogue are just some of the names thrown about. Now it’s been revealed that Beyoncé is the mag’s star of choice to front its final offering of the year. Making a long-awaited return to the cover of the British fashion bible, the icon appears on a trio of covers all captured by 21-year-old Kennedi Carter (the mag’s youngest-ever cover photographer). Beyoncé wears Mugler, Adidas x Ivy Park and Alexander McQueen in the three cover images all styled by Edward Enninful.
The covers immediately became a topic of conversation on our forums. “I am truly sorry, but I have never thought of Beyoncé as a star with great fashion sense or fashion influence, but this is downright atrocious…” declared dontbeadrag the moment the covers dropped.
“Cheap, contrived, desperate,” Ed.. chimed in.

“To be completely honest, I’m disappointed with the execution of ALL three covers. Not the biggest Beyoncé fan, but think the photography is dreadful, the styling is an eyesore, the posing is laughable and there’s zero correlation between the covers. All just a total nonevent,” voiced vogue28.
“Three strikes…you’re out! This is embarrassingly bad,” disapproved dfl-001.
Armani was also less than impressed: “Oh no, what a disappointing batch of covers. As much as I will defend Beyoncé’s artistry, visuals and untouchable talent until the day I die…she just isn’t the strongest editorially, never has been.”
“These look like ads for an obscure strip club/brothel. Really Edward? Adidas on a Vogue cover…” added avonlea002.
