Under Alastair McKimm, i-D continues to be the gift that keeps on giving. The publication has a knack for dropping buzzworthy covers starring Kate Moss, Teyana Taylor, Naomi Campbell, Gigi Hadid, Billie Eilish and Kim Kardashian. There’s always something for everyone and the fashion title’s Spring 2022 edition is no different. This time around a total of seven covers come our way featuring Paloma Elsesser by Sam Rock, Cruz Beckham by Steven Klein, Rosalía by Oliver Hadlee Pearch, Hunter Schafer by Stef Mitchell, Binx Walton by Amy Troost, HoYeon Jung by Colin Dodgson and Kendall Jenner by Luis Alberto Rodriguez.
The covers immediately ignited debate on our forums. “I love Paloma Elsesser, but this is really not good,” confessed KINGofVERSAILLES.
“Geez isn’t Cruz Beckham like 17 years old? Not interested in seeing him on covers, least of all in his boxers…” disapproved Marc10.
“That Cruz cover is making me feel so uncomfortable,” echoed [Piece Of Me].

“Hideous retouching. This child’s abs look painted on,” avonlea002 pointed out.
Rosalía’s cover soon became the topic of conversation. “That’s a stunning cover!” declared mikel.
“The best of the bunch is Rosalía’s cover, purely because I’m reminded of Nick Knight’s early work for British Vogue with the photography. I love the colors, I like the styling and Rosalía’s pose. I’m also very surprised at Kendall Jenner’s cover…” voiced vogue28.
“I like Binx Walton’s because it’s a classic i-D cover,” added ivano.
“Happy to see HoYeon Jung. Love her cover! I also love Hunter Schafer, but her cover is probably my least favorite. They could have done so much more with her, what a waste,” said guimon.
