We’ve pretty much fallen in love with Allure magazine all over again, having recently bestowed upon us fabulous covers featuring the likes of Taraji P. Henson and Salma Hayek. After serving us Jessica Alba for September, Allure goes from strength to strength by delivering Julia Roberts for October. An unexpected yet welcomed choice, the 47-year-old actress shines before the lens of photographer Tom Munro wearing a black silk Lanvin blouse, making us want to watch Pretty Woman just for the sheer hell of it.
“Best Allure cover – ever. Julia looks beautiful. The layout is not messy like usual,” credited a more than satisfied jeffandtheworld, hitting us off on a positive note.
“Flawless cover, Julia looks so gorgeous,” burbuja8910 added.
Sharing the same attitude was MON: “Wow this brought back the October charm! I love it. It’s so soft, I want it. I want to be her. I want to be there. It’s so effective.”
Bahiyya was won over, too, echoing, “Came here expecting to see a 500 yard stretch of pearly whites on the cover, so for this alone, I bestow my approval and possible purchase.”
“Not a fan of Julia but I do like her cover and edit,” admitted justaguy, just as things were about to turn sour.
“Her hair is way too blonde, not digging this spread,” shared an underwhelmed HeatherAnne.
KateTheGreatest simply wasn’t a fan, either, stating, “The cover doesn’t work for me at all, she looks as if she’s about to fall asleep or something. I’m also tired of seeing her everywhere smiling. She does have a nice smile but it’s in every editorial of hers and now it’s predictable.”
