The influx of Katy Perry reprints will soon vanish from newsstands worldwide as every edition of Harper’s Bazaar gears up for the release of the October installments. The Aussie edition’s new cover is one of the first to surface on our forums and we welcome Jessica Hart, who smolders before the lens of photographer Steven Chee in an embellished black dress from Gucci. This isn’t exactly Jessica’s debut Harper’s Bazaar Australia appearance — we’re pretty sure you can remember her fabulous cover from June/July 2014.
Forum members couldn’t wait to see what Bazaar had for us. “Whoa, she looks good, love the mood of this cover. That strong bone structure even stands out in a sheeny shot like this,” loved Benn98.
“I like the drama and the glamour of this cover, it’s trying to make a statement of some sort,” added a satisfied tigerrouge.
Bertrando3 was pleasantly surprised. “I never used to like her but damn this and her Vogue Australia cover from not too long ago were fantastic. She is proving now she is a good cover model,” he acknowledged.
Also amazed at the outcome was DelicateFlower: “Jessica Hart isn’t one of my favourites, but I’m interested to see how this cover looks. Soon as I saw her name I kind of assumed the cover would be bland and wanted to dislike it, but this looks promising.”
“She’s such a good model, I really like her. Hair looks good, not sure about the makeup,” said Oxymore as things began to head down under.
“Haven’t we seen something like this before recently?” asked an uninterested Nymphaea.
