Edward Enninful sure likes to give the front covers of British Vogue to subjects who’ve never appeared on the fashion glossy before. Since 2017 everyone from Adwoa Aboah to Irina Shayk to Angelina Jolie to Judi Dench have made their debuts. Now it’s Lila Moss’ turn for May 2022. The daughter of modeling royalty Kate Moss wears a Prada dress and a Noel Stewart bonnet courtesy of Joe McKenna for the stunning shot snapped by Steven Meisel.
The end result split our forums. “I actually quite like it. It’s a nice spring cover. The U.K. edition always does well when it does this modern-version-of-vintage-Vogue look. It’s not groundbreaking, but it works,” appreciated LastNight.
“Not bad. I like the pastel colors,” admired crmsnsnwflks.
“Obsessed with the cover just as much as I am over the fact Steven Meisel was willing to photograph Lila Moss! Very much appreciate the fashion-forward styling with the Noel Stewart bonnet. The cover photograph itself is poised, elegant and beautiful in its simplicity,” raved vogue28.

Although not everyone is impressed. “Nothing works. Lila is bland on a whole other level. Nepotism at its best I guess. NEXT!” declared Bertrando3.
“What a ridiculous cover,” added liberty33r1b.
“Lila isn’t it. And ALL these people can’t help her. What a lame cover,” critiqued Norden.
“This would have been aced if they just pulled her hair back into a simple style. The baby bonnet looks silly and not fashion forward,” noted dfl-001.
“Just stick a pacifier in her mouth to complete the baby fetish. Sheesh,” said Phuel.
