Our forums have become notorious for ranting about magazines conjuring up the same old recycled cover subjects issue after issue and now for March 2016, Glamour adds fuel to the fire by tapping overexposed actress Gwyneth Paltrow. The American title had been doing just fine, having just served up a radiant Jennifer Lawrence last month. Now moving swiftly on to its big spring fashion issue, Gwyneth was shot by photographer Steven Pan under natural sunlight and looks pretty happy wearing a floral Calvin Klein dress.
Surprisingly, our forum members were pretty happy with the cover. “She looks happy and radiant and natural. I don’t love the dress itself, but I do think it works with the natural/carefree styling. The formatting’s pretty good, too. Marie Claire and Allure should take notes,” admired KINGofVERSAILLES.
“Very fresh cover, agree that the dress is somewhat mature but the smile and layout still look nice,” responded Urban Stylin.
Also a fan of the cover was Miss Dalloway: “She is one of those movie stars that I am just sick of seeing on covers, but I have to say the woman photographs like a dream. Probably the best cover girl among famous women.”
“Oh I like this. She looks so happy. The dress though. Why?” questioned MON, just as the discussion started to take a slight turn.
A.D.C. later admitted, “She looks exactly like she has looked for the last 18 or so years. Good for her but can we get something different?!”
“Who is this smiling woman? Where is the frosty, problematic ice queen I know and love…” shared Luxx.
“The Photoshop on the eyes is so creepy, very ghoulish,” kokobombon pointed out.
