Zadie Smith Is The Gentlewoman’s Refreshingly Intelligent Cover Subject (Forum Buzz)

Our forums have been huge advocates for just about everything The Gentlewoman has produced over the years and it should come as no surprise that we’re head over heels for the the magazine’s latest. Knocking it out of the park once again, the biannual title tapped British writer Zadie Smith as this season’s cover girl, following in the footsteps of Kirsten Dunst, Léa Seydoux and Beyoncé. Photographed by Dutch photographic duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Zadie looks fantastic in the colorful portrait shot.
