If you’re an avid reader of British Harper’s Bazaar, you know the magazine likes to welcome back old favorites from time to time. In 2019 alone, it has given us four returning cover girls and now Kristen Stewart has found her way back on the cover. Two years after her last appearance, the actress is back for October 2019 and transports us to Paris as she’s captured on location at the luxurious Shangri-La Hotel by photographer Alexi Lubomirski. Decked out by stylist Miranda Almond in head-to-toe Chanel (of course), Kristen stars on both the regular newsstand cover (after the jump) and the special subscribers’ offering (below).
The subscribers’ cover immediately became a topic of discussion on our forums. “That’s a lovely cover. Love the reflection in her glasses,” admired mikel.
“Vogue Paris could never,” applauded jorgepalomo.
“This looks like an advert for Chanel, but the image is undeniably beautiful…” KissMiss confessed.
Sharing the same sentiment was [Piece Of Me]: “It does look more like an advert for Chanel sunglasses (I bet Chanel provided some $$ to this cover), but it is certainly a lovely cover. Vogue Paris, are you watching?”
Bertrando3 was also full of praise. “The very first time I see this girl emoting and truly giving a great photo. It does look like an ad and not like a cover, but it’s a superb image. You can also appreciate the Eiffel Tower, it’s a very French cover for a British magazine.”
But not everyone was impressed. “Nothing about this excites me…” complained Miss Dalloway.
“Both the newsstand and subscribers’ covers are terrible. The hideous hair color and that lifeless expression? Not for me. Content better be good because I’ll easily skip seeing this on my coffee table,” declared Benn98.
