The March issues are slowly starting to trickle out and U.K. Harper’s Bazaar‘s offering is one of the latest to drop. We took an exclusive first look at the cover for subscribers before the weekend featuring Nicole Kidman shot by Norman Jean Roy. Bazaar took advantage of the Aussie beauty’s stay on British shores performing on the West End stage in London. The actress was photographed in a show-stopping Marchesa gown on the subscriber’s cover (pictured below), while on the regular newsstand cover, Nicole looks regal in Alexander McQueen.
Members of our forums fell in love. “STUNNING, Jesus lord this is heaven, classic,” declared madzedre.
“Absolutely wonderful subscriber’s cover, with the crows, the sense of cold and the fading light, it’s like a scene from a gothic drama. What is she looking at? What is she waiting for? Where do those steps lead to?” asked tigerrouge, completely wrapped up in the cover.
“I really love the cover. Looks like a shot straight out of a 90s couture editorial or something like that,” applauded mistress_f.
“Nicole Kidman just delivers the drama of utter glamour like nobody else. I adore her for it! It’s no wonder why she’s muse to so many of the great photographers,” shared happycanadian.
And then came the newsstand cover (below). “Wow, that newsstand cover really was worth the wait! Love what she’s wearing and the angle looks great. For once I have no qualms buying this version!” raved Benn98.
“Stunning! No celebrity does these dramatic covers better than her. The newsstand cover gives me some 90s vibes in a good way, though the Photoshop went a little overboard,” Urban Stylin soon pointed out.
In agreement was kokobombon: “The newsstand cover is really good IMO, despite the Photoshop disaster done to her face and hand.”
