Given current events, we almost forgot spring has sprung. We miss going outside terribly, but luckily British Harper’s Bazaar has us covered. The mag transports us to the idyllic gardens of Arboretum State Park with its June 2020 cover shoot starring Rachel Weisz. The title has been riding a wave of success lately having given us delightful Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Léa Seydoux covers. Now Rachel is back on the cover three years after her last appearance wearing Chanel (picked by Miranda Almond) for the subscribers’ cover (below) and newsstand alternative (after the jump) both photographed by Pamela Hanson.
The covers immediately caught the attention of our forum members. “Oh this is stunning!” exclaimed MON.
“Rachel is so darn gorgeous, it’s insane,” admired bluestar.
“Another absolute win of a cover for British Harper’s Bazaar (despite the unnecessary floral overlay) and will never shun a cover appearance from Rachel Weisz. She’s a true beauty, photographs like a dream and looks fabulous in Chanel. The subscribers’ cover is just as gorgeous as the newsstand, certainly appreciate those vibrant colors and the idyllic garden location during lockdown,” raved vogue28.
In the same frame of mind was liberty33r1b: “Gorgeous covers.”
But for some, all those flowers proved to be too much. “Seems like such a waste to layer all those effects on a perfectly stunning image! Without that it could have been one of Rachel’s strongest covers yet after her 2012 one for British Vogue,” noted Benn98.
“Why layer on more flowers?” echoed 8eight.
