“Ghostbusters” actresses Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Melissa McCarthy cover ELLE magazine’s first Women in Comedy issue photographed by Mark Seliger and styled by Samira Nasr, which will hit newsstands on June 21st.
And the poledance for the bizarrely controversial Ghostbusters remake is off and running, with a pretty fantastic opening salvo, we have to say.
First, everyone is styled pretty fabulously. Kate and Kristen are more or less perfect. But we’d have liked Leslie’s better if she was wearing a slip dress underneath. And while Melissa looks great in those colors, she comes off a little underdressed in comparison to the other ladies.
Second, the makeup and hair is spectacular for all four of them. Seriously, kudos to the ELLE team on that one. Kristen and Melissa in particular are giving major FACE here. Leslie’s makeup might be a bit harsh but we’re loving the hair.
And finally, whether they’re stage-managed and focus-tested or not, the images all come off like pleasingly candid shots, loaded with personality and individuality. It’s a great set of covers.
