Hits and Misses: Magazine Covers of April 2024

Hits and Misses: Magazine Covers of April 2024


Looking back at what our fave fashion glossies have bestowed upon us throughout the past month, it truly feels like every single magazine from across the globe has upped the ante (or thereabouts). Harper’s Bazaar Arabia won us over completely with Sara Sampaio serving us pure unapologetic glamour (and major mob-wife realness), Anok Yai as Vogue Japan’s cover girl ultimately proved to be everything a Vogue cover should be and did Gemma Ward‘s surprise appearance on Vogue Poland single-handedly save the whole month? On the opposite end of the scale, Vogue Italia’s April installment starring Bella Hadid felt like a total wasted opportunity and why did Harper’s Bazaar Australia/New Zealand insist on Elle Macpherson as cover star, to only go and make her so obscured and so unrecognizable?

Scroll further to see which April 2024 magazine covers made the cut (and which flopped) this month, all in accordance to theFashionSpot’s unfiltered forum members:

HIT | Harper’s Bazaar France with Kaia Gerber by Alasdair McLellan

MISS | UK Vogue with FKA Twigs by Johnny Dufort

“What a let down! I was so hoping for a fresh start for British Vogue, but this looks exactly like Edward’s era. I hate this style of photography and the building and branches you can see in the background. This could’ve been really fun and fresh, but it’s just not quite there.” [LastNight]

MISS | Vogue France with Sophie Marceau by Quentin de Briey

Vogue France should never use the same celebrities that were shot before by Vogue Paris! It just shows how mediocre they are even though we already know that.” [GivenchyAddict]

HIT | Allure with Shakira by Emmanuel Monslave

“Most definitely one of the better Allure covers I’ve seen over the years. I would honestly take this as a cover of some edition of Vogue. In all honesty, this is such a strong cover and I love everything about it.” [vogue28]

MISS | Vogue Italia with Bella Hadid by Zoë Ghertner
