March’s magazine is the final ever for the title after Bauer Media decided to stop printing it due to plummeting circulations earlier this year.

The cover was posted on Instagram today with the message: “44 years never looked so good. The farewell issue of CLEO hits stands on Monday. Thanks to@jesinta_campbell for recreating the very first Cleo cover so beautifully. Styled by@alissajaythomas – Photography @nsfotog #cleofinalissue

The cover line on the final issue says “We farewell 44 years of sass, bachelors, sex and centrefolds”.

Campbell has graced the cover twice before, with the final edition set to hit shelves on Monday.
