Last month, Harper’s Bazaar‘s kicked off its 150th anniversary year with Lady Gaga, and now another iconic pop star is following in her footsteps. Bazaar welcomes back Madonna for February 2017 with a flawless close-up image, photographed by Luigi and Iango. Serving us Old Hollywood glamour, Madonna’s cover story includes a series of gorgeous black and white images reminiscent of vintage movie stars.
The majority of our forum members were pleasantly surprised with the outcome. “Wow, I’m floored! It actually looks like one of her old images, but they’ve gone WAY overboard with the retouching to the point of rendering her unrecognizable (probably on her insistence?). That said, I like the first shot [below] which looks more like an editorial start. So refreshing to see her in a romantic dress and jewels,” acknowledged Benn98.
