We’ve been waiting for British Vogue‘s April issue for what feels like an eternity. Sienna Miller was just one name thrown around as a possible cover star. The magazine throws us a curveball by dropping two covers. Cover one goes to Anya Taylor-Joy wearing a crown and a Christian Dior Spring 2022 Haute Couture creation (which took a remarkable 200 hours to create) picked by Kate Phelan for the image captured by Craig McDean. For the second offering, the publication resurrects a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II from 1957 by Anthony Armstrong-Jones in celebration of the upcoming Platinum Jubilee.
The moment the two covers dropped, our forums were engulfed in debate. “This is lovely and a very nice surprise!” said justaguy.
“Both covers are gorgeous,” echoed ivano.
“The two covers are beautiful in their own right. Queen Elizabeth’s is just so lovely, celebratory and proper that I cannot help but to admire it, while Anya’s feels like the rebellious alternative. I’m getting Kate Moss vibes from it, love the muted colors and Phelan’s styling,” admired vogue28.

“Very Kate Moss with the crown,” agreed Scotty.
But not everyone was smitten. “Happy for Anya, but that dress is certainly not cover-worthy. I know it’s hard to find a nice dress from any Dior collection, but there has got to be a better-looking one?” wondered GreyVetiver.
“I like it a lot minus the crown, which for me is absolutely unnecessary…” WAVES chimed in.
“Very 2005 music video,” critiqued MON.
BlueRuin described the outcome as “dated,” while oaklee91 called it “sublime.”
