The vast majority of us are living out our summer fantasies through our favorite glossies. Thankfully, Vogue Paris, Vogue Greece along with British Harper’s Bazaar have transported us to locations across the globe. Now British ELLE makes us yearn for sun-drenched days down at the beach with an absolutely vibrant August 2021 cover featuring Daphne Groeneveld. The blond Dutch beauty certainly looks like she’s been plucked from the pages of ELLE from the 80s sporting sunglasses and a yellow Norma Kamali swimsuit as she dashes before the lens of Laurie Bartley.
Of course our forum members are big fans. “I love the setting and burst of yellow because it’s all about an exotic summer that not many of us will have. We do want some escapism at least,” proclaims Benn98.
“Great to see Daphne on a cover. She looks stunning,” raves a definitely delighted mikel.
“It’s a good summer cover, very Sports Illustrated, too! The 80s done well!” approved WAVES.

“Great summer cover!” exclaims an obviously thrilled liberty33r1b.
FashionMuseDior is clearly in the same frame of mind: “Daphne is bringing sexy back!”
“Glad to see Daphne…reminds me of Hans Feurer’s work with brilliant colors,” said VogueGirl8910.
“I’m always down for covers which evoke French ELLE photographed by Gilles Bensimon during the 80s so the direction of this cover is RIGHT up my street — tan lines included. The colors immediately grab your attention and the cover undoubtedly just encapsulates summer!” declares vogue28.
