All the January 2019 Magazine Covers We Loved and Hated
Lifestyle By Michelle Bronx |
It’s hard not to wonder how much longer this monthly series reviewing fashion magazine covers will be relevant. Putting aside that glossy after glossy is shuttering (Glamour is the latest print title to bite the dust), magazines are becoming increasingly uninspired, especially when it comes to U.S. editions. And while it’s nice to see the likes of Jennifer Aniston, there’s nothing new that will be revealed — not in her beauty look, with her fashion choices and certainly not in the PR-approved interviews.
Inevitably, we’ll also see multiple covers featuring celebrities of the moment, which this month happens to be based on movie releases and personal milestones from Emily Blunt and Priyanka Chopra. Things get redundant fast. Thank goodness for international editions to keep things interesting! Love or hate them, they almost always offer up something to talk about along with unexpected or underused cover stars and models, including Tilda Swinton and Yalitza Aparicio.
