Madonna and Andrea Riseborough Cover Harper’s Bazaar’s December Issue (Forum Buzz)

Madonna is featured on the December cover of Harper’s Bazaar with actress Andrea Riseborough, who stars as Wallace Simpson in Madonna’s upcoming film W.E. Though we haven’t seen much of Andrea yet, she clearly seems to be a star on the rise.

There was no clear consensus among forum members in terms of whether the newsstand and subscriber covers deserved a thumbs up or thumbs down. Images of Andrea were met with praise, but Madonna didn’t get off so easy. Blueorchid wrote: “Madonna looks kind of creepy on [the cover],” but Miss Dalloway countered that assertion, commenting: “I personally think she looks the best I’ve seen her in a while. She actually looks serene and beautiful there to me.”

Liberty33r1b’s first reaction was: “This looks great, much better than I thought!”
 
Northern Star seemed apathetic posting, “Not good. Not bad. Not much to say.”

I think I’m in Northern Star’s camp. I actually like the covers but could do without the inundation of excessive text. Junking it up like that just detracts from the sophistication of the actual image. Several forum members mentioned that but for the layout of the newsstand cover, the image looks like it could belong on an issue of W, and I agree. Andrea has an ethereal sort of beauty and Madonna’s face looks as good as it can look in spite of the unnatural contours from whatever fillers and botox she’s indulging in these days. No offense intended to Madonna, but I’m looking forward to a solo Andrea Riseborough cover sometime soon. She just might mesmerize us all.
