Glamour‘s July issue starring Kim Kardashian no doubt did well on the newsstands. Moving forward, the title taps Amy Schumer for its August 2015 edition, photographed in a blue Narcisco Rodriguez dress teamed with a Stella McCartney bra. Matt Irwin shot the cover and the accompanying story with Beth Fenton on styling duties. The American comedian can also be found inside the issue sporting pieces from Dolce & Gabbana, Lanvin and Donna Karan.
Yet our forum members aren’t exactly thrilled with what Glamour has achieved. “And the really bad covers keep coming,” slammed jal718.
“Genuinely did not recognize who it was on that cover, what an awful photo,” shared an unimpressed SallyAlbright.
In agreement was tigerrogue: “It’s like we don’t get to see any of Amy on that cover, it’s just a shapeless mass of blue fabric and hair in front of her face. They could have done so much better with her. You’d think the team would have some tricks to bring out the best in their cover stars.”
MON wasn’t showering Glamour with much praise either. “How unflattering does this look and it is most definitely not Amy’s fault! She a beautiful, sexy and confident woman and the cover does not embody any of that! I would’ve gone with a form fitting dress to show the world of how sexy her curves are and how proud she is of them. And that wind effect, really? What’s up with the black color scheme lately? It’s too dark and makes their covers look dated!”
“So amazing to see her on the cover, sure they could have done her more justice, but I still like it,” acknowledged Miss Dalloway.
