As Edward Enninful rounds out his final few issues as editor of British Vogue, surprises are dropping left, right and center. Make no mistake that since day one, Enninful has amazed us to no end with a whole plethora of bombshell cover stars (a prime example being Judi Dench back in 2020) and Julia Roberts is the latest for February 2024. Last on the fashion bible back in 1994, the screen legend poses for photographer Lachlan Bailey in the glam cover shot, styled by Enninful himself. Captured high atop London’s Claridges’s hotel and looking impossibly glamorous, Julia flashes her megawatt smile sporting a head full of voluminous curls while decked out in a look from Sabato De Sarno’s Spring 2024 debut Gucci collection.
Read below the reactions of theFashionSpot’s forum members:
Indeed, the cover took members of our forums by surprise. “An unexpected choice, but Julia brings so much joy. I think it’s a good cover. That smile!” commented fangora.
“Julia Roberts looks stunning and ageless. She looks luxurious and as rich as she is. A great cover!” forum member MModa recognized.
ReneSanchez shared the same level of enthusiasm, adding: “I love this cover, I find Julia Roberts quite refreshing on a fashion magazine cover as she very rarely appears on one!”
“Massively here for Edward Enninful favoring Lachlan Bailey lately, and for giving Julia Roberts a cover. The cover itself is gorgeous, love the red Gucci, the glamour, the hair and of course Julia’s megawatt smile!” vogue28 raved.
Also quick to show their approval was thiago: “A good cover. Love her and her smile and her hair!”
