I think the chances for this were killed by a wide publicity... it did not come out of nowhere... and was not intended to bring to our attention just a model or fashion story... it is linked to Duran Duran's video which is supposed to be very sexy, etc so it would be crazy to go with something totally unrelated...it is intended to a general public even beyond general Bazaar customers... that's how I see it...

I certainly don't hate it, it's more a case of "is that it?" It precisely feels like someone took a shot of them standing around before they moved on to the main event of doing more for that video. It has that sense of being 'secondary', of people saving their best for something else.

But still, a bunch of supermodels and a big red background, that'll do me.

Woah that's a serious dissapointment. By Bazaar's usually very, very high standards that cover is pretty lame. Subs cover might well be better when we see it, but even so, this has to be one of Bazaar's weakest covers. Despite having some of the best possible cover subjects in it.

To me it reminds me abit of a supplement cover, its disappointing especially with the fantastic ones they've pulled out the bag recently.

She wasn't in the video.

Wonder who shot this, and can't wait to see the contents. I've been checking TFS fanatically for *days* to see this cover, finally!

I was hoping there'd be individual covers for each model, as I'm sure you were

^ Telegraph has it credited as: " Jonas Akerlund for Harper's Bazaar", i suppose that's why i have more of a "behind the scene" photo, than cover image worthy shot, feel over this cover.

yes I was... I am generally not a big fan of full size group shots... the same was the case with Vogue Espana... individual shots were stunning... I think only few photographers can work this magic out... it must be confusing seeing so many beautiful women at the same time and then try to deal with it;-)))
I am still hoping to see the HQ... for some reason I think i will like it alot

I did wonder if they were going to release several covers, like the way they offered two newsstand versions of that Victoria Beckham one, a few years back.

I actually like very much this cover on the contrary, they all look good (great bodies at their age), great smiles and cool supermodels. The red background is nice and the coverlines are placed well. Nicely done: 8/10
