Harper’s Bazaar hasn’t exactly been winning over our forum members lately and with the unveiling of each issue, the magazine only seems to be getting worse. We were left dumbfounded over last month’s Alicia Keys offering, were less than thrilled with yet another Jennifer Aniston cover over the summer and Jennifer Lopez‘s February cover resembled every other cover of Bazaar. This month, Hollywood icon Demi Moore reappears on the title after a seven-year hiatus. Twenty-eight years after her infamous nude Vanity Fair cover, the actress bares all in the newsstand cover shot wearing nothing but a diamond Van Cleef & Arpels bracelet and a huge Lynn Paik hat (courtesy of Miguel Alberto Enamorado) as she poses poolside for photographer Mariano Vivanco.
Our forum members were not impressed. “Demi Moore is still as gorgeous as ever. The taste level of this cover is not,” voiced dodencebt.
“This is a new low,” added phungnam96.
“It looks like Harper’s Bazaar has teamed up with Playboy,” said tigerrouge.

“Jesus Christ, everything on here screamed at me when I opened the thread. Absolutely horrible!” declared aracic.
“An absolute travesty of a cover and a total disservice to Demi Moore! This type of photography and concept from both Harper’s Bazaar and Mariano Vivanco feels incredibly dated, comical and gimmicky beyond belief,” called out vogue28.
“Demi’s cover comeback deserved better than this dated mess of an image,” echoed zoom.
“Demi Moore used to be the biggest star in the world and now this,” stated mepps.
TaylorBinque wasn’t a fan. “Tatler has better fashion direction than this. What an absolute mess. Obnoxiously vulgar and extremely lazy.”
“The fact that the person who thought that hat was a good idea was paid big bucks. The world is really wild,” proclaimed Marc10.
