There were a number of great covers this month thanks to top models like Anna Ewers, Frederikke Sofie and Karlie Kloss, but not all were bright and shiny. A Cindy Crawford shot fell flat as did one featuring her daughter, Kaia Gerber, and there were celebrity misses aplenty ranging from the usually stunning Charlize Theron to Riley Keough. The worst, however, was surely Amal Clooney’s Vogue cover that resembled a random paparazzi event snap more than a glamorous cover shoot.
Natural beauty looks ruled most of the covers, which is always nice to see. Unfortunately, diversity wasn’t at a high this month, but there were some standouts, thanks to the U.K. editions of Vogue and ELLE.
Here’s a look at all the best and worst May 2018 magazine covers.
