Carey Mulligan and British Harper’s Bazaar Give Us the Festive Cover We’ve Been Waiting For

If there’s one thing about our forums this time of year, they absolutely crave festive magazine covers. The British edition of Harper’s Bazaar gives us exactly what we want with its beautiful January 2018 edition. Actress Carey Mulligan makes a stunning return to the cover as the title rings in 2018 on a high. Photographed by Richard Phibbs, Carey wears a white ostrich feather Saint Laurent dress in the dreamy newsstand cover (below) and looks ethereal and demure throughout the entire cover shoot.

Members of our forums were in awe. “I absolutely love this – finally a festive winter cover!” rejoiced SallyAlbright.

“Beautiful cover and she’s such a great actress,” cheered mepps.

“A joyous cover, and Carey somehow seems just right for it,” echoed a delighted tigerrouge.

Also quick to show the cover some love was HeatherAnne, commenting, “Festive, cheery, not overly airbrushed — love everything about it.”

Honeycombchild shared the same enthusiasm. “This is lovely, very festive without being over the top. She looks beautiful too. Alexandra [Shulman] (formerly of British Vogue) was always so narrow-minded about her covers, they always must be looking directly at the camera etc etc, but I genuinely think the most effective cover images don’t play by the rules in that way at all,” he pointed out.

“I love it! So pretty,” voiced RuthEB.

“I think it’s a cute cover and will look perfect on December newsstands even though it’s a January issue. Would’ve been even better if she faced us. Love the fact that British glossies are going glamorous this Christmas! ELLE, Vogue, Marie Claire, Harper’s,” Benn98 appreciated.
