Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen Grace the Cover of W’s May Issue (Forum Buzz)

W May 2012 - Nicole Kidman & Clive Owen by Emma Summerton

In theory, a Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen W cover photographed by Emma Summerton sounds like a good idea, but in reality the resulting image falls a bit short. The cover isn’t terrible or even bad by any means, but as Northern Star pointed out, something is a bit awry if Nicole Kidman “looks like Elizabeth Hurley in a blonde wig.”

Ives927 thought the cover and editorial looked like part two of the Stepford Wives, but others, like Melancholybaby responded to “the icy feel of the cover and the ‘frustrated married couple’ theme of the editorial.”

Jessica Chastain has an editorial in the magazine that was photographed by Paolo Roversi, and the fact that she didn’t land on the cover feels like a missed opportunity. Especially since she’s proven how stunning and strong she can look on the covers of T: The New York Times Style Magazine, and AnOther Magazine among others.

Alas, since Nicole and Clive are the cover models, I’ll leave you with a look at their editorial.
