Nina Garcia has a thing for putting music’s finest on ELLE’s front cover. Over the last 12 months, the mag has featured Lizzo, Dolly Parton, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Dua Lipa and Rosalía as cover subjects. Garcia even picked Cardi B to star on the title’s all-important September edition. Now the mag scores another major coup for October. South Korean girl group Blackpink debuts on American ELLE‘s latest edition captured by photographer Kim Hee June. The K-pop stars each land their own solo covers (after the jump) as well as share the limelight (below) wearing looks from Celine, Chanel, Christian Dior and Saint Laurent.
“I love this. Jennie is serving on her individual cover, but Lisa is the MVP of the main cover for me,” declared KINGofVERSAILLES.
“Absolutely stunning! I also love the fact that they choose a Korean photographer,” applauded 0st3nd.
SLFC shared the same sentiment: “Nice and simple, well styled and well shot.”

“I have zero interest in Blackpink, couldn’t tell you a single song title, but I am very pleasantly surprised at how much I like this. I can appreciate the absence of pastel and the more mature styling — and that solo cover of Jennie wearing Chanel is utterly divine,” said vogue28.
But Benn98 wasn’t buying it. “Wake me up when all this is over. I wonder if the cover will sell for ELLE.”
“If the future is Blackpink, I don’t want to be in the future,” Ed.. chimed in.
“I thought ELLE was a fashion magazine…ridiculous cover,” disapproved jal718.
