Jessica Chastain Does Her Best Lana Del Rey Impression on Interview’s 45th Anniversary Cover (Forum Buzz)

Interview‘s October cover has finally hit our forums and the issue marks the magazine’s 45th anniversary. The magazine tapped Jessica Chastain to front the celebratory issue and enlisted Craig McDean to capture the actress for a black and white cover story. Jessica also fronts the November issue of U.K. Harper’s Bazaar and the two covers couldn’t be more different, showcasing Jessica’s versatility to perfection.

Our forum members are left with mixed feelings toward Interview‘s latest cover, though. “Good cover, but not blown away. Kind of hate the hair,” noted VogueDisciple93, who was left a little underwhelmed by Interview‘s efforts this month.

“This is the worst I have seen her in print!!! Why make her look like a bad copy of Lana Del Rey?!! And she looks just as uncomfortable in this styling. Not impressed,” commented Miss Dalloway.

Melancholybaby was also left feeling uncertain: “It’s quite different for an Interview cover, can’t remember the last time they did a full body shot. The logo placement bothers me too and all in all I think I need some time to digest it. I hope the contents are just as amazing as last month’s though!”

“Me too!! Thought this would be a close-up. Pleasantly surprised. Love the vintage femme-fatale vibe going on here. The masthead bothers me a bit, but it’s fine,” replied Benn98.

The conversation regarding Jessica’s resemblance to Lana started up again. “Love Jessica Chastain and these B&W shots are awesome! Yes, a bit, LDR, but love her too!” declared justaguy.

“She looks like Lana Del Rey in this kind of styling, hair and makeup,” agreed fluxxx.

Another forum member not feeling the cover was tigerrouge: “Monochrome images are a great way to make a visual impact, but there’s far too much going on in the cover shot. It fails to make the most of what film noir style can offer. I don’t need to see the shadows of random electrical wires. It isn’t some sort of reflective commentary on how films get made, it’s just untidy.”
