The styling is soooo boring, why all the boring black? It looks almost like they couldn't get any decent samples sent out to them.

They even gave Susan Boyle a little more variety than they've given Leighton....

The first Leighton shot is nice, but it looks like it belongs in Nylon or something, and not in Harper's Bazaar IMO.

I actually find the Susan Boyle ed classy and endearing.

As for Leighton's editorial... I think it's supposed to be her at different ages--explains the outfits. I agree it's lacking, but yay for another amazing interview from her!

I'm not interested in Leighton and never watch her show, so I thought I'd dislike the cover - but I don't. It wouldn't put me off buying the magazine, I don't mind a bit of bland glamour.

Leighton! Thank god it's not Susan Boyle. What an awful rumor that was.

Glenda must have a lot of faith in Leighton though to put her on the cover for September. I wouldn't imagine Leighton being capable of selling an outstanding number of issues.

The text on the cover is extremely suffocating as well. As though its inching in to get closer and closer to Leighton's throat.

Also the photo is kind of awkward because Leighton is sticking her arm out to hold it on her hip. But since we can't see that arm her left should looks odd.

Bigger version of the cover and ed.


Quote:
Leighton Meester graces the “big fashion issue” cover for Harper’s Bazaar’s September 2009 issue, on stands August 18th.

In an ode to the mag’s most popular editorial franchise “Fabulous at Every Age,” the Gossip Girl star ages gracefully through the decades with the help of some digital enhancements. Check it out below — Leighton in her 20’s and one in her 50’s! Here are some interview highlights:

On the alleged sex tape: “[The tape] is not real, so it makes me sort of sad. It’s unfortunate that it got carried as far as it did… I definitely understand the nature of people better now and that the mere allegation of something like that could be headline news. People think it’s real because somebody says it is.”

On the pitfalls of fame: “I don’t want most of what comes along with all of this. I’m doing everything I can to keep things separate. I feel like my friends are in a cult because we’re like, No outsiders! I’ve never been crazy. I’m a very good girl, to be honest. I don’t do anything to hurt anybody. Honestly, all I ever do is work.”

On aging and Botox: “Any fear of aging, I think, is simply vanity because what comes with age is so many wonderful things: wisdom, understanding. Every year, I’m always happy to be done with the previous age. If people want [to get Botox], do it.”

Co-star Ed Westwick on meeting Leighton for the first time: “The first thing I thought when I met Leighton was, F—ing hell, this girl’s gorgeous. And she was incredibly sweet. Now we tell each other to f— off whenever we want to.”

If Susan Boyle was on the cover I would have stopped buying magazines and retired! There is way, way too much text on the cover.

The lack of thought and originally that went into to this cover and the main editorial is really disappointing to me.

Edit: OH MY GOD! I just clicked on the photo to see close up. I didn't think they would literally photoshop Leighton to make her look old. I just thought they would style the clothes that way. Why would Bazaar do that to her? That's awful! If I was Leighton I would be humiliated. It's like Bazaar turned her into some freak photoshop experiment.

The Susan Boyle ed is decent but it doesn't belong in the Sept. Issue...

The Leighton cover and ed are quite embarassing... and she will not sell that many covers. Secondly, she should just be honest about the sex tape... since they are pics to confirm it.

Thank God I don't subscribe to HB... cannot wait for my Elle with Jennifer on the cover.

She admitted to the pictures in the full interview. I guess pictures don't necessarily mean video.

Bad photoshopping making Leighton look older. She looks like a man in the elder shot!
I have mixed feelings towards Susan's pictures. Part of me thinks 'Aww, poor Susan. She always gets bad press for her looks'.
But when another part thinks 'Hang on. This is a Fashion magazine. Get out please'.
Thanks tarsha!

I believe the shoot Karl Lagerfeld did in Venice at the same time of the Purple shoot will be in this issue... I think maybe it was Baptiste and Lara. Maybe more but I can't really remember.
