We just love it when a magazine enlists someone unexpected as its cover subject, but it appears Harper’s Bazaar got it all wrong with its latest installment. The U.K. edition of the Hearst-owned title tapped Jessica Chastain for the November cover. Photographed by David Slijper, the 37-year-old Golden Globe winning actress posed wearing a show-stopping piece from Armani Privé.

Impressed? Our forum members sure had a lot to say. “Looks more appropriate for December than November. Glad that the color is more intense on the cover, because the editorial previews looks very dull,” stated Benn98, who then went on to say, “What a surprising choice, of course I don’t mind her at all.”
“It is too festive…but anyway the cover is very charming and glamorous,” replied GlamorousBoy.
KateTheGreatest shared her view: “I find her so incredibly boring but I like the pic of her in the green dress (although her eyes look weird).”
Another forum member with mixed views was Kanna, who commented, “Both on the cover and in the ed the dresses are fabulous, and I love the setting also, but it’s Jessica’s face that bothers me. She looks manly and stiff in these.”
“This has a lot of potential because it’s beautiful at a glance, but I hate how stiff she looks in these photos or the Photoshop that’s done to her to make her look that way,” posted lawaldorf.
“I don’t really like her makeup, it is so pale. And the photos could be more colorful, but she is gorgeous!” noted Anna147.
“Ouch, everything is too much! She looks like [a] Christmas tree,” declared a dissatisfied narcyza.
