Our forum members flocked to the thread to kick off the discussion. “Ugh it sucks that Bazaar would be the cover she lands after her Oscar win. She deserves so much better!” ranted A.D.C. within minutes.

“I love Julianne and Camilla and that background color, but her face/expression is a bit off… the smile and her eyes,” miguelalmeida replied.

MON wasn’t feeling it at first glance, either and made some suggestions: “I was expecting something more tbh. Julianne and Camilla should’ve been perfect. This is underwhelming. She looks tired. Her head looks bigger and it looks like it was attached to the body. Is it just me who hates it when Bazaar strays away with their white background? I think it’s their identity and they’re at their strongest with the white background! But it’s undeniable that that pink is pretty, but I wanted to see something soft in a white background.”

Feeling the same way was Miss Dalloway, who added, “The face she is making here is SO unfortunate, that can not be the best shot of her they had! This magazine is hopeless!”

“Meh.. Julianne’s Oscar win was so epic. This cover fails to convey the moment. I bet Vogue would have done a better job,” Nepenthes sniggered.

Do you think Bazaar failed to capture Julianne in the best light? Let us know inside the thread here.
