We’ve been devotees of everything WSJ. Magazine since as far back as we can remember. Last year alone the title managed to bag Oprah Winfrey, Gisele Bündchen, Gwyneth Paltrow and gave us a supermodel extravaganza for September. So it should come as no surprise that the magazine is blowing us away for May. Transporting us to New Zealand, WSJ. Magazine enlisted model Rebecca Leigh Longendyke, photographer Lachlan Bailey and stylist Anastasia Barbieri for the occasion. Showcasing the majestic scenery of South Island in the captivating cover shot, Rebecca sits perched in a chunky knit sweater taking in the jaw-dropping view.
“Stunning! WSJ. Magazine is doing better than Vogue Paris… with the same photographers,” called out jorgepalomo.
“Sublime is the word I was searching for upon seeing this. How beautiful,” admired Miss Dalloway.
“Just beautiful, I won’t even complain about her looking away from the camera because it just works on this unconventional but engrossing cover. Thank goodness for Barbieri!” praised Fiercification.
“What a gorgeous cover, I always love it when they incorporate landscapes or architecture into them,” raved dodencebt.
Sharing the same sentiments was dfl-001: “I take so much artistic inspiration from nature and natural beauty, so the wide vista with mountains in the background and the meadow with smaller human figure is quite beautiful.”
Mikel was quick to describe the cover as “breathtaking” and we couldn’t agree more.
