Is the staff at British Harper’s Bazaar feeling OK? Models on the cover two months in a row, what have we done to deserve this? Shunning the usual celebrity cover subjects, Bazaar has tapped Mariacarla Boscono to follow in the footsteps of models Daria Werbowy and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who’ve each graced the cover of U.K. Bazaar this year. Catching us off guard, the Italian beauty is a welcome sight as she serves up a trio of covers shot by Nico Bustos for the title’s October 2016 edition and we’re loving it — mostly.
Members of our forums soon ignited a debate. “Unusual for Bazaar and an unexpected choice, I like it. October issues are always so much better than the September ones,” championed a pleasantly surprised honeycombchild.
“Lovely! Simple but effective,” added rox_yr_sox.
“Not bad, love the colours and snuggly fur, but I think Mariacarla’s cut doesn’t suit her face type. And maybe a softened and smoother hairstyle would’ve been better?” questioned Benn98, just as forum members began to pick minor faults.
MON wasn’t a fan of the hair, either: “I like this. It’s very soft. However the hair… It goes against the entire mood of the cover. It’s too heavy for me.”
Forum member happycanadian agreed, saying, “She’s gorgeous and I’m so happy for her that she’s landed this cover. It’s an unexpected choice! With that being said, the hair is god-awful. It looks like a $3.00 wig from a discount costume shop.”
“The hair isn’t working however I’m so excited to see Mariacarla getting this cover!” approved YohjiAddict.
Sharing the same sentiments was Miss Dalloway, writing, “The image is not right for the cover… Either way I won’t complain since this is such a welcome refreshing choice…”
“I love it. Who cares if she’s not as well-known as Kendall or Gigi? She’s high fashion aristocracy and those are just peasants with money,” mocked Wintergreen, showing enthusiasm toward Mariacarla’s cover appearance.
