Vanity Fair has been extremely hit or miss this year. We’ve been left majorly underwhelmed lately with offerings featuring Priyanka Chopra and Queen Elizabeth II. Not to mention a cover highlighting Star Wars. The only one to truly take our fancy, however, is the magazine’s annual Hollywood issue. Now for July/August 2022, the title once again captures our attention thanks to Dakota Johnson. The star of Netflix’s Persuasion looks absolutely serene in the beautiful cover image gazing down the lens of Ryan McGinley.
Of course, members of our forums are clearly fans. “I like this! She kind of looks like Carla Bruni at this angle,” notes GERGIN.
“I like this! Very summery. Feels like a bit of a throwback, in a charming way, and Dakota looks beautiful,” added KINGofVERSAILLES.
“Very striking!” raves mikel.
WAVES is obviously impressed: “Beautiful portrait and very in season.”
“Beautiful cover and editorial. Simple yet striking,” admired thiago:).
“Love it, very casual yet still sophisticated,” Urban Stylin points out.
“A very pleasant cover with Dakota Johnson has a Porter meets British Harper’s Bazaar quality that I like and the photography from Ryan McGinley is beautiful. It’s just…effortless and very easy on the eye,” voiced vogue28.
“This is simply beautiful,” proclaims Benn98.
