Newly-appointed editor-in-chief of InStyle Laura Brown hasn’t exactly received a standing ovation on our forums lately, with Reese Witherspoon‘s December cover being the latest to disappoint. So, it comes as no surprise that the newly-unveiled January cover has received a bit of backlash. Newsstand dynamite and fashion icon Sarah Jessica Parker is Brown’s latest cover conquest, taking time out of her busy schedule designing a successful shoe collection and filming HBO’s Divorce to pose for InStyle-regular Thomas Whiteside.
The newsstand cover (above) left our forum members far from impressed. “Yikes, this could be Redbook! It’s not bad, but the backdrop doesn’t suit the color at all. It actually looks poorly edited,” critiqued Benn98 at once.
