    First J.LO, now Beyoncé? Bootylicious year for Allure, then. Bad cover, though.:doh:

    Okay. That's interesting. I have a very strong distaste for Beyoncé Knowles, but it's very rare of Allure to come out with a full-body cover shot rather than... well, anything but, really, especially a close-up. Though I'm not one to shy away from change, isn't Allure in the end more beauty than fashion-oriented?... Hmm. Then again, this is just the cover.

    It's actually kinda funny this cover should've been photographed next to a US Glamour one, because stylistically, this Allure cover is like the offspring of US Glamour and Cosmopolitan.

    Would have to see a HQ version to make up my mind about it, though.

    I like the way the cover talks about romance and relaxation when Beyonce looks like she's about to spring into action - and I like that sense of slightly menacing energy, the glare on her face, and the sight of a good strong leg.

    I like this one because at least it's different. Not the typical headshot of the cover star. She looks fab too. :ninja:

    I don't like this cover. I've always thought of them as a beauty mag, so I was expecting a headshot, not full body. It's too hard and agressive for me also.

    That's not her best Allure Cover. She did better with that one.

    so that last time allure used a full body shot was with fergie...who isn't exactly blessed with a pretty face...:ninja:
    b, on the other hand, can be quite beautiful with the right makeup...
    curious as to why they went the full body route here, other than to show off her gams..

    I like it. If anything, I expected a headshot or a close-up but when I opened the thread, I was surprised. Beyonce for me looks great here. Menacing and fashionable. Plus she's a sort-of role model too. Ü
