As the March issues slowly but steadily start to trickle onto our forums, Kate Winslet is U.K. Harper’s Bazaar‘s latest cover subject; her second cover appearance since Justine Picardie took over as editor-in-chief. For the magazine’s big March issue, Kate was photographed by Alexi Lubomirski on a windswept English beach near the British actress’ farmhouse home.
Forum members were quick as cats to voice their opinions. “Very Peter Lindbergh! But somehow it feels dated (because it also lacks his actual touch), here we are in 2015, and it’s Kate Winslet back on the cover, yet another movie star that is a regular for them! Justine needs to cast her net wider, so many wonderful cover choices, but we keep going back to 10 same, overused, faces!” Miss Dalloway first ranted.
“Absolutely agree with you. Reese, Gwyneth, and now Kate. Where are the breakout stars?” asked Benn98.
Forum member Kite was also in the mood for change. “April 2013 was her last cover of Harper’s Bazaar U.K. but she was on American Harper’s Bazaar last year and it just feels like she has had 60 covers in the past 5 years. She’s beautiful but come on!” he exclaimed.
MsCoen22 soon fired back in disagreement: “Yes, she’s on their cover a lot, but come on. She’s a legend. She’s always a welcome presence, especially given that she always has projects to promote. She has 4 movies coming out this year. If we’re talking returning cover girls, I’ll take her over people like Gwyneth who promote their lifestyles.”
“The subscriber’s cover is sublime, the newsstand one is good too,” burbuja8910 noted.
