After Carine Roitfeld‘s spectacular shoot for the September issue, Katy Perry is now U.S. Harper’s Bazaar‘s latest cover star. The “Teenage Dream” singer poses on the magazine’s October 2014 cover photographed by Camilla Akrans. The shot is certainly a departure from Katy’s usual look as we see the 29-year-old looking ultra glamorous wearing a show-stopping dress by Schiaparelli Couture, styled by Julia von Boehm.
See inside the thread here for both the newsstand (pictured above) and subscribers covers. It seems members of our forums have mixed feelings toward the covers. “The newsstand cover is so pink and tacky. I like the subscriber’s cover though!” wrote Nepenthes.
“The newsstand cover is like an overdose of Cherry Coke, while the subscribers one is beautiful,” agreed tigerrouge.
“The subscriber’s cover is a beautiful image. I’ve learnt with Harper’s US to just pretend entirely that their newsstand covers don’t exist. It’s for the best,” declared honeycombchild.
“Wow that subscribers cover is beautiful. How the dress falls and how she posed makes it look so regal! The newsstand cover could have been better if it were subjected to their usual white background. That would have allowed the beautiful red dress to stand out in the cover. Although I must agree that she looks so average here and her eyes look so sleepy,” MON said.
A.D.C. doesn’t seem to rate Harper’s Bazaar and posted, “Bazaar makes everyone look average.”
“I second that!” replied Benn98, who went on to say: “I’m just glad Camilla shot this. It’s not the most captivating shot, but it’s much, much better than her last cover for them. They must just stop with this color background, there’s nothing ‘fall’ about this. The subscriber’s cover is very nice, and hopefully the ed will be too! I guess their model high has come to an end. Pity, really looked forward to their issues a few months ago.”
