We’ve known since December that a Justin and Hailey Bieber Vogue cover was imminent after the newlyweds were spotted at a shoot with photographer Annie Leibovitz and stylist Tonne Goodman. After some delightful covers starring the likes of Priyanka Chopra and Reese Witherspoon over recent months, the latest celebs to hit the cover are indeed Mr. and Mrs. Bieber as Hailey sits on Justin’s lap wearing a white embellished Prada dress, while Justin goes shirtless.
If you thought the infamous Kimye cover was bad…apparently you’ve seen nothing yet, according to our forum members. “This looks like a 45-year-old mom from the suburbs of LA posing with her bad boy son who keeps getting suspended from school for selling Xanax,” mocked littlekiki the moment the cover dropped.
“I’m baffled. Not only is the subject of the cover truly tragic, the image itself is, in my opinion, bloody awful. Neither come off well and the posing is just plain weird,” said honeycombchild.
“No, this is terrible in every way. Anna [Wintour] is just pathetic, truly!” Miss Dalloway called out.

“This is travesty at its finest. I was kind of hoping Anna would give it to Brie Larson to coincide with the release of Captain Marvel. But oh well. This is what we got. And it’s so saddening,” voiced cottonmouth13.
Lola701 was quick to point out: “It’s like Kim and Kanye… neither of them would have had a cover if they weren’t together. But, this is beautifully executed!”
But not everyone hated it. “The subjects are annoying and I have no interest in reading about them, but the cover and image is 100% US Vogue which I actually like a lot. This turned out way beyond my expectations,” Benn98 admitted.
“It’s technically a good cover. I just f-ing hate it,” commented Joromana.
