There ain’t no other magazine like ELLE France. Period. And we, here at theFashionSpot, cannot sing the magazine’s praises loud enough! Week after week, issue after issue, editor Véronique Philipponnat delivers us everything we could possibly want – and then some. Covers lately have featured the likes of Isabelle Adjani, Charlize Theron, Laetitia Casta, Keiona and Edita Vilkeviciute to name just a few. The French weekly’s latest dated November 2, 2023 gives us Anne Vyalitsyna who makes us want to hit the slopes. All smiles and radiating nothing but pure joy, the Russian-American beauty (who at 16 became the face of Chanel’s Chance fragrance) is ready for some winter ski action as she poses for photographer Philippe Jarrigeon. Styled by Hortense Manga, Anne aptly sports a look from Louis Vuitton latest ski collection for Winter 2023/24 in the energetic and joyous cover image.
Needless to say, the cover received a round of applause from members of our forums. “I like it! It’s cute and fun!” approved MON the moment the cover dropped.
“So fun and Anne looks so cute – it’s fab!” raved fenty.
Thiago echoed the exact same sentiments, commenting: “Very fun! She looks great and I love the energy.”
“Anne’s one of those models that never age and she always photographs beautifully,” enthused Urban Stylin.
In complete agreement over the outcome was vogue28: “Such a fun and vibrant cover, love the energy and it has been very cleverly shot and art directed. I love ELLE France at the best of times but this instantly reminded me of Rianne van Rompaey‘s cover of Vogue Paris from October 2020 which was also extremely retro, kitsch and fun.”
