Over recent years, our forums have recognized that Harper’s Bazaar tends to recreate past covers, but we didn’t expect a near exact replica of one of its covers from 2013 — with the same cover star. Kate Hudson stars on Bazaar‘s double holiday edition for December/January, photographed by controversial photographer Terry Richardson. Shot once again before a vibrant pink background and flashing an energetic smile, Kate wears a dress by Gucci and we’re just so over it.
Members of our forums were far from blown away. “Cheesy as hell and by Richardson, fail and fail IMO,” kokobombon slammed straight away.
“They must be showcasing her new line of workout clothes. Regardless, overused styling on the cover mixed with typical Richardson tackiness,” added justaguy in agreement.
Also unenthusiastic was Marc10: “It truly amazes me how Kate manages to maintain this status of covering a bunch of magazines, attending every award show without being a relevant movie star in…how many years now?”
GlamorousBoy wasn’t buying Kate’s presence, either. “Even worse than I expected… and those unoriginal, boring, badly Photoshopped newsstand covers really bother me. Those covers are always the same, no matter who is on the cover,” he complained in frustration.
“Why is Kate Hudson on a cover of a magazine in 2015?” asked liv4beauty, unwilling to change the attitude of the thread.
“So I’m guessing her last cover did well because they basically reproduced it. Big smile, lots of pink, done. This magazine is truly pathetic. More so than any other,” confessed A.D.C.
