You’d better hurry down to your local newsstand for Anna Ewers‘ cover of Harper’s Bazaar as the magazine gears up for the release of its brand new June/July 2015 issue. Bazaar tapped Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke as its latest cover star, donning a show-stopping creation from Alexander McQueen. Along with the accompanying shoot from Norman Jean Roy, forum members feel there’s just a little too much going on.
“I really want to like this, but it looks too over-thought. It’s all the feathers. Still, I’m glad Emilia booked this,” commented Benn98 just as the cover surfaced earlier today.
“I actually can’t work out how I feel about this cover. I think I like it, but then I also think it’s a bit much. Maybe it’s the contrast of that dramatic outfit and all the feathers against the sea and sky, it feels a bit mismatched,” added an uncertain LastNight.
Feeling the same way was HeatherAnne who wrote, “Agree with everyone, a little bit over-the-top and hokey, looks like stills from a Game of Thrones video game advertisement.”
Cosmic Voices disapproved of the styling also. “There’s some intense styling but it’s better than her U.K. Vogue spread,” she commented.
“I like it…. the hair and makeup are simple enough to contrast with the dress. Those cover lines though! Are they even worth mentioning anymore? I’m just happy Norman has taken over from the awful Terry Richardson,” shared A.D.C, inputting a different attitude.
Also responding well to the cover was TeeVanity: “Emilia looks lovely, I really like this cover.”
“My Queen” hailed kewkaw soon after.
