We are obviously big believers in diversity on magazine covers. So Marie Claire has been on our radar lately thanks to the brilliant covers of Janet Mock and Megan Thee Stallion. Now none other than Gabrielle Union can be seen in the digital edition of the American glossy for October 2020. The American actress and co-founder of Flawless by Gabrielle Union was shot by Djeneba Aduayom in the Los Angeles desert and she wears Chanel (courtesy of Thomas Christos Kikis) for the truly impressive cover picture.
The cover fell completely flat on our forums. “These headlines are sloppy for me. Not crazy about this photo either. Is it glued to the background? Lookieloo wondered.
"Is she attending Marie Claire's funeral?" mikel added.
Ken Doll Jenner repeated the same feeling: "WTF, this looks like an elementary school student just discovered Photoshop."

“How do you even take a bad photo of Gabrielle Union? Doesn't calculate, ”said KINGofVERSAILLES.
"Really, really awful," proclaimed jal718.
"What's the point of these digital covers? There aren't any digital issues to flip through online, are there? This is just an article / feature on the website. So why make a wrong cover and confuse people?" Asked Srdjan.
But vogue28 disagreed with the majority. “I have to watch something else because I think this has what it takes to be a great cover. At first glance, I loved the colors and styling, how direct the photography is, and how October feels overall. Gabrielle Union isn't exactly featured on every fashion magazine cover, either, which is a bonus in itself. "
