Blake Lively stars on Allure‘s newly-released May issue, participating in her first magazine shoot since giving birth. The Age of Adaline actress sat for Mario Testino in a series of effortlessly beautiful portraits. On the cover, Blake poses wearing a crisp white shirt with her hair brushed back, letting her natural beauty do the talking.
“Blake looks lovely, it’s a nice cover,” enthused TeeVanity, setting us off on a high note.
In agreement was Miss Dalloway, writing, “This turned out much more beautiful than I imagined.”
Forum member Nymphaea used the words “beautiful” and “pure” to describe the cover, and we couldn’t agree more.
“It’s undeniably beautiful! It’s refreshing and the layout works. One thing I’ve noticed is that Mario’s recent work has been really repetitive month after month. The white background and shadowing gets really tiring month after month. It’s all the same,” MON ranted after a string of positive comments.
Also not much of an admirer was Benn98: “It’s certainly beautiful, but a missed opportunity. The cover line screams ‘get a killer body’, and you have Blake with Hollywood’s hottest body yet we get a close-up. Not a fan of the shading.”
“A bit too airbrushed in my opinion, but she looks beautiful,” offered Emmanuelle.
