Unfortunately, it’s a very rare sight to see a model gracing the cover of an American or British mainstream fashion glossy nowadays. But very slowly but surely, British ELLE appears to be hearing our pleas for a return to the good old days. Following Rosie Huntington-Whiteley last month yet another fashion model graces the publication’s latest. Altyn Isabella Simpson is the mag’s May 2021 cover star fronting the issue wearing a tweed bodysuit from Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2021 collection in the joyous cover image snapped by Tom Schirmacher.
British ELLE‘s latest took our forum members by surprise. “Feels very throwback. I like it,” instantly approved mikel.
“I like it. Reminds me of vintage Chanel campaigns,” added THD96.
“Stunning cover, it’s a bit on the Emmanuelle Alt side, but I love it. And Altyn looks amazing. U.K. ELLE continues to win me over with each cover,” raved Benn98.

“Altyn looks gorgeous. Look at that smile! This cover could easily pass for a Vogue Paris one! Well done ELLE U.K.,” Valentine27 chimed in.
FashionMuseDior shared the same sentiment: “Very Vogue Paris indeed.”
“Very Vogue Paris, which is perhaps the reason why I’m most drawn to it (very similar to Daria Werbowy by David Sims from August 2013 with a dash of Anna Ewers by David Sims from February 2015),” echoed vogue28.
The cover also spoke to Bertrando3. “Love the energy, the colors, the pose, it feels so FRESH and totally fashionnn…”
“Nice to see more models on the covers of magazines these days!” cheered annikad.
