It’s a pretty rare sight to see a 61-year-old woman greet us on the cover of one of our favorite glossies. So major kudos to Allure for giving us Sharon Stone for November 2019. The beauty-focused publication has opted for some unexpected yet exceptional cover stars of late, including Gemma Chan, Adut Akech, Ashley Graham and Naomi Osaka. Captured by Emma Summerton and styled by Simon Robins, Sharon sports a Proenza Schouler suit over a black lace La Perla bra teamed with a pair of Tod’s brogues on the eye-catching cover.
The “anti-aging” cover line immediately sparked debate on our forums. “‘The End of Anti-Aging’ and Sharon Stone airbrushed into oblivion,” mocked dodencebt.
“Sharon Stone is a shining example of how cosmetic surgery can work for you in a sympathetic way, enhancing the beauty you already have. She’s also been a brand representative for Galderma, which offers facial fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments. Allure‘s agenda regarding anti-aging has (so far) been very anti-surgery so I’m not sure how this fits in with that stance,” tigerrouge chimed in.

“She looks great, but that ‘The End of Anti-Aging’ tagline is ridiculous. She’s been worked on like everyone else in Hollywood. Allure needs to stop the nonsense,” mepps scolded.
“They’re pushing ‘The End of Anti-Aging’ yet have dedicated thousands of pages to the topic of anti-aging products and procedures in the past and will undoubtedly do so in the future. This is such a hollow attempt at being woke,” declared lelaid.
“I was excited to see what they would do with her, but the ridiculous Photoshop and the hairstyle ruined it,” said Urban Stylin.
KINGofVERSAILLES agreed: “As beautiful as Sharon is, I think this is a terribly unflattering shot and seems incredibly off-brand for the magazine.”
