Every magazine has its go-to cover girl and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is a firm favorite of British Harper’s Bazaar. The model has appeared on every September cover for the magazine since 2014, except for last year when she was pregnant. Making up for lost time, Rosie is back, appearing on Bazaar‘s second-biggest issue of the year: March 2018. Shot by Agata Pospieszynska on location at the Four Seasons Hotel in London, Rosie wears Saint Laurent with the Tower Bridge in the background on the bright and inviting newsstand cover (below). For the limited subscribers cover (after the jump), the Brit beauty is captured in black and white outside the hotel wearing Altuzarra while clutching a cute pooch (cue the awwws).
Members of our forum have had enough with Rosie’s umpteenth Bazaar appearance. “This looks like a posed Instagram shot,” complained A.D.C the moment the cover dropped.
“Awful, and I can never understand this obsession they have with her. It looks like she was Photoshopped onto that chair. Dress doesn’t work, backdrop looks like a painting, clearly Agata does much better outdoors than indoors,” added Benn98.
“Seriously, give us a break from Roise. She is gorgeous and has done some good covers for them (mostly under Lucy [Yeomans] for me), but enough! This feels so insipid, that black dress is underwhelming, and she is giving zero energy!” Miss Dalloway complained.

Expressing the same sentiments was Bertrando3: “I swear they must have signed a multi-covers for ten years because it’s impossible otherwise !!! She’s on the cover three times every year and BRINGING NOTHING TO THE TABLE! She is as bland as a piece of paper!”
“I don’t mind her as a model, but I really think this push to make Rosie a big thing is really getting old,” echoed kenndale.
KateTheGreatest said, “I don’t mind seeing Rosie on the cover, I really like her. Having said that, they could have used her more, a different setting or styling would be better as well. This is a little dull.”
