So far, the September covers haven’t exactly proven to be anything spectacular. Marie Claire unveiled its September cover just before the weekend and tapped Miley Cyrus for the biggest issue of the year. The magazine took a different direction with the “Wrecking Ball” singer with Miley channeling Twiggy on the cover image, complemented by the evident 60s-themed styling and Marc Jacobs mod-inspired shift dress. We’re just thrilled to see that Miley is actually dressed!
“This is actually a nice cover for her. Not sure about the dress though,” said MON as soon as the cover broke on our forums.
“Must say, it’s a lot better than I expected after reading the title,” expressed Nomar in agreement.
Feeling the same way was KINGofVERSAILLES: “I like this, it feels different than what I expect from both Marie Claire and Miley. I actually find Miley more interesting and accessible than the vast majority of young pop stars or actresses, so I don’t resent her getting all the press she does. The ‘mod’ styling isn’t exactly unique for magazines to do with short-haired female celebrities, but it really works well for Miley.”
Forum member tigerrouge also seemed impressed. “What’s shocking about that cover is that it’s not as bad as you’ve come to expect from Miley Cyrus,” she wrote.
“Not a bad cover at all, third MC cover in a row that doesn’t look bad. She looks a bit like Kate Mara here,” noticed Benn98.
“I’ve been off the Miley bandwagon for quite some time now (and don’t see myself getting back on anytime soon) but she looks great here. Love the 60s reference,” declared a pleasantly surprised orchidee.
