UPDATED JANUARY 27TH 2015: Added five new covers featuring Abbey Clancy, Pixie Geldof, Kate Upton, Daisy Lowe and Keira Knightley. The special covers by Elle was a collaboration with Comic Relief starring five very special friends (who have styled the Red Nose Days t-shirts their own unique ways) – with every copy sold including a donation to Comic Relief.
The ELLE Comic Relief Issue will be on sale at all UK TK Maxx stores from January 29th for the special price of £2.99 (including 75p donation to Comic Relief).
The Red Nose Day t-shirts by Karl Lagerfeld, Anya Hindmarch, Diane von Furstenberg, Matthew Williamson and Henry Holland are on sale at TK Maxx, with prices starting from £9.99 – 100% of the net profits go to Comic Relief.

Elle UK produced mainly close up shots for their subscriber covers line up this year. We don’t know whether it’s intentional or not. But some of them are stunning! We are talking about Kylie Minogue’s ethereal shot by Cuneyt Akeroglu, Scarlett Johansson’s beautifully demure photo by Rankin, Miley Cyrus striking black and white profile by Jan Welters, and Anne Vyalitsyna’s regal blue cover by Kai Z Feng.
On the other hand, their newsstand covers were not really stands out. The only newsstands version that caught our attention were Natalie Portman’s November and Candice Swanepoel’s December issue (she’s gonna wear that $10 million bra in this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show). Even though the magazine had gone through quite a drastic make over on the cover (sleeker fonts, cleaner layout) but those gorgeous subscriber covers that wins us over.
But that’s only our opinion though. Perhaps one of your favourite covers from Elle UK this year is amongst these selections: Victoria Beckham for March (by Carter Smith); Rihanna for April (by Mariano Vivanco); Kate Hudson for May (by Benny Horne); Amy Adams for July (by Jan Welters); Pixie Geldof for August (by David Vasiljevic); Katy Perry for September (by Mariano Vivanco); Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for October (by Mariano Vivanco); or Michael Fassbender for December special collector’s edition (by David Bailey).
