Prepare to salivate over ELLE‘s fabulous new July cover. The magazine recently unveiled its upcoming installment via its website and the cover was immediately brought over for the forums to deliberate. The glossy unexpectedly tapped Amber Heard for its July 2015 issue, enlisting Liz Collins to photograph the model (and wife of Johnny Depp) sporting a white swimsuit by Thapelo, complete with a wool jacket draped around her arms from Ralph Lauren Collection. Time to pick your jaw up off the floor.
Surprisingly, the cover leaves forum members with mixed emotions. “HAIRBRUSH! If you’re being shot in a studio, someone can reach for the hairbrush. That’s not even artfully messy hair, that’s just a limp mess. Kristen Stewart would think twice about leaving the house if her hair looked like that,” fumed tigerrouge within seconds.
“Tacky cover, I don’t get her fame (just being Johnny Depp’s wife),” discredited burbuja8910.
Feeling underwhelmed as well was Emmanuelle: “She is beautiful, but here there’s no energy in her eyes.”
“It’s a powerful and sultry pose matched with a very somehow vulnerable stare, but what makes it wrong is that messy hair and that tacky swimsuit that shows her side boob. I love the irony in her name though. Amber Heard, but I’ve never heard of her. But as I researched, I applaud her for her involvement in various social causes,” granted MON.
Also a little uncertain was Miss Dalloway: “If the cut of the swimsuit was better, I would have liked it, but wow Liz Collins? There is a surprise!”
Forum member narcyza showed her support and wrote, “Yeah, it’s quite a nice cover. I really like this simple makeup on her.”
