Emma Watson Looks Radiant on Porter’s Winter Escape Cover (Forum Buzz)

Porter continues to knock it out of the park, producing fabulous covers one after the other. We were perfectly content flicking through our copies of the magazine’s Winter 2015 issue with Marion Cotillard on the cover until Porter unveiled its brand new Winter Escape 2015 edition over the holiday weekend. On the effortlessly beautiful new cover, we’re greeted with a radiant Emma Watson gazing down the lens of Cass Bird. Putting Emma’s latest British Vogue cover to shame, the actress photographed beautifully wearing a striped shirt from Louis Vuitton.

Make no mistake that our forum members were fans from the start. “Simple, but gorgeous, so much better than her awful U.K. Vogue cover this year!”

Miss Dalloway applauded. “Another hit for Porter; Emma looks absolutely stunning!” praised Nepenthes.

Sharing the same positive attitude was KateTheGreatest, hailing, “I think it’s a lovely cover. I especially like that they use Cass Bird and Ryan McGinley. It’s so good to see their work – I’m tired of seeing Testino, Mert & Marcus and others’ overrated and overly Photoshopped work.”

“This is a great cover, posed, but still very natural looking. Great styling, too!” complimented justaguy.

Everyone else, however, was left with some qualms. “Reminds me too much of the cover with Natalia Vodianova and that one was far superior to this one. Emma looks old in this pic,” said Nymphaea.

“It’s like a U.S. Vogue cover but better. I like it. But it’s not winter enough for me though,” wrote an underwhelmed MON.

We sure can’t wait for Porter‘s upcoming issue to be out on newsstands Friday, December 4. See some previews and share your opinion with us here.
