Shanina Shaik Cradles a Koala on Harper’s Bazaar Australia (Forum Buzz)

Magazines are constantly on a mission to impress and Harper’s Bazaar Australia has delivered the goods this time around. We’ve become admirers of the Aussie title, which far surpasses the American edition in terms of creativity. For April 2015, the magazine tapped Shanina Shaik as its latest cover conquest, who cuddles a cute koala named Chip. Aww! The image, captured by Simon Upton, perfectly embodies Australian fashion and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results.

Bazaar‘s latest installment is fresh off the press and our forum members were keen to start deliberating over the newly-released cover. Getting us off on a positive note and setting the tone for the rest of the discussion, nataliaapple simply described it as “Lovely” inside our thread.

“I’m so pleasantly shocked how EVERY Australian fashion publication has such a great layout and design sensibility. Vogue, ELLE, Russh, and Harper’s Bazaar all do such great work. This is no exception, Shanina looks amazing,” complimented marsnoop2.

Forum member visualoptimism seemed impressed, too and noted, “Awesome, a koala!”

Also thrilled with the magazine’s efforts this month was KateTheGreatest: “Looks cool. I’m jealous of Shanina, I want to hold a¬†koala too,” she wrote.

Harper’s Bazaar meets National Geographic…interesting,” said AL92, maybe not quite feeling the presence of an animal on a fashion magazine cover.
