This year's Elle Russia October cover boasts a dynamic design that makes the fashion magazine look like a post shared to Instagram by the @elle_russia account.
The design of the printed magazine cover features South African model Candice Swanepoel, who can be seen alongside brands like Louis Vuitton and Givenchy Beauty that are "tagged" in the image. The cover also prominently features social media icons alongside the publication's logo. As well as offering an eye-catching look, the magazine cover is a fitting one, as it expresses the theme of the issue: technology and the future, especially social media's ever-changing role in the world of fashion.
Printed publications are now being enhanced with augmented reality features, interactive elements and designs that resemble familiar aspects of the online world.
