InStyle has began to rapidly fall out of favor from our forum members of late. After producing an underwhelming cover featuring Kate Winslet last month, for their May 2015 edition the magazine invites Reese Witherspoon back onto its front cover for the fourth time. Photographed by Giampaolo Sgura, Reese stood before the Italian-born photographer’s lens wearing a vibrant blue feathered dress by Fendi that unfortunately just wasn’t enough to entice the majority of us into making a purchase.
“So in a span of six months Reese booked Vogue, Glamour, Vanity Fair and InStyle, not counting UK Bazaar. It’s mid 2000s all over again. What could she possibly have to say that hasn’t been said before in the other mags?” questioned Benn98 when the news first broke.
“Oh God.. why her? why?” GlamorousBoy echoed afterwards.
Miss Dalloway also wasn’t feeling it and wrote, “Horrible cover, my god her face never looked worse, not to mention bad cropping of her head!” Oh dear, this certainly doesn’t sound too good for sales this month.
“Gorgeous cover, especially the blue colors but that waist isn’t realistic.” noted Nymphaea as the mood started to change.
Forum member AbbeyRoad declared, “I love this cover!” inside the thread.
“I was ready to hate on Reese and her never ending covers BUT this cover is beautiful!!! Fresh, vibrant, and that smile is infectious!! She’s beautiful, that’s undeniable but there’s something in this cover that feels new. I love it and it stands out.” enthused MON.
