OK, so U.K. Harper’s Bazaar could have given us anything after Michelle Dockery‘s sleepy and depressing cover last month and we’d be happy. Thankfully, the title has just unveiled its November offering with Rachel Weisz, shot by photographer Tom Craig for her fourth cover appearance. A departure from the actress’ past covers, Rachel sits elegant and pretty on the newsstand cover (below) wearing an Alexander McQueen dress, styled by Leith Clark.
Members of our forums were left pleasantly surprised. “Oh that is just so pretty,” exclaimed marsnoop2 the moment the cover surfaced.
“Wow that’s the first U.K. Bazaar cover I’ve liked in a while, very pretty,” Fashionmagaddict agreed.
But unfortunately, after a couple positive comments, the cover began to receive some critique. “I wish it was more typical Tom Craig work, I really enjoy his warm colours and I kind of miss that. But Rachel is really beautiful and it is a beautiful cover,” reasoned KateTheGreatest.
“It’s again an essentially neutral cover with white cover lines, very much like last month. Only this time I’m not overfond of the cover subject, so will await the review,” said Benn98.
Also not totally fond of the cover was Srdjan: “I love the upper half of the cover but the bottom is confusing with all the texts on her dress.”
“Lovely. I like the composition and layout. I just wish they’d have done something different with her hair, maybe an updo like in the subscribers’ cover,” wrote a slightly disappointed kokobombon.
Bertrando3 most definitely wasn’t feeling it, declaring, “It’s plain and ultra boring. NEXT!”
