If you're going to put the focus on the shoulders, make sure the shoulders look superb, like architecture made from flowing lines and angles, not randomly this-way-and-that. All it takes is a little more effort to find the pose, then hold it for the shot.
It's not the worst cover I've seen, but I find myself more interested in the background structure than the subject, which is never a good sign.

There's a video to go with the shoot on the site and what you can see in it and not on this cropped cover is that Anne's hands are folded on a sort of plinth (good word, that) in front of her. It looks like a nice shot in the video actually. There's some nice full length shots too, and some where she's sort of hanging off a ladder. You can see the previous Bazaar images they've used as inspiration in the video. Looking forward to seeing her full editorial based on that actually.
The checked Vuitton makes another appearance in her editorial too.
This feels dated and what used to be Harper's & Queen. For the first time in ages, I find the cover of Bazaar to be mundane. It just appears to be dull and un-stimulating. That's not Anne's best angle either. I wonder if it's the cropped hair that isn't cutting it for me here. Because from the behind-the-scenes video, I do look forward to the published pictures.
