Ashley Graham Channels Cindy Crawford on Harper’s Bazaar Australia’s April Cover

Ashley Graham may just be our favorite model right now, largely due to the fact she excels at absolutely everything she does — from creating clothing ranges to speaking out against body issues and nailing it on the red carpet.

The Revlon brand ambassador also delights us on the covers of our favorite fashion glossies — see: British Harper’s Bazaar, American ELLE and Vogue Arabia. That’s why we aren’t at all surprised to see Ashley working it like the rent is due tomorrow on Harper’s Bazaar Australia’s April 2019 edition. Photographed by Nina Munoz and styled by Kristen Ingersoll, Ashley gives us flashbacks to Cindy Crawford’s modeling heyday, sporting a head full of curls and a sultry makeup look teamed with a red Toni Maticevski trench and black Zadig & Voltaire booties.

Another home run of a cover for Ashley, according to our forum members. “Love it. I like that the studio shot looks this bright when the background is kept lighter,” said dfl-001.

“Beautiful, sometimes you just need a gorgeous, even if generic, cover,” applauded Miss Dalloway.

“Love Ashley Graham, this cover is generic but I agree she (like Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Cindy Crawford, etc.) knows her niche and works magnificently at it. Gisele is like that, too: pure commercial glamour that is timeless. Not edgy and not showing different poses or looks, but it works!” said Bertrando3.

“I was just thinking that Ashley’s good on the front of magazines because she has that generic appeal that cover girls used to have — you couldn’t ever have said that Cindy Crawford was that versatile, by fashion standards, but she knew her audience and made the most of it. And it’s a similar story with Ashley — she’s not trying to be edgy, she’s selling a lightly glamorous look which might not be to high fashion tastes, but it doesn’t go out of style for the general public,” tigerrouge echoed.

Happycanadian was also a fan: “This is just incredibly beautiful. It absolutely harks back to a 90s Cindy cover and that is perfectly fine by me! She looks sensational.”

Vogue28 was in total agreement, commenting, “Too gorgeous for words, love the whole Cindy Crawford/80s vibe of the shot, how the red Bazaar masthead complements the coat, those voluminous curls, Ashley’s pose. Yes!”
