    Definitely not the right make-up for this shot (it's far too light), but I love it! :heart::heart: Such a perfect autumn shot. The ruched velvet looks lovely, mad about the backdrop, just wish Cate could've cracked a smile at least.

    More of Will Davidson please! And hopefully all the Aussie editions are kicking themselves for missing out on his brilliance.

    Agree just a touch extra would make it impeccable... I quite like it too nonetheless...

    that dress is one of the very fews things alessandro's ever done that i really loved, so it's great to see cate wearing it but her makeup is totally wrong for it

    Love the red shot above, and she look stunning in all the looks! But I'm more impressed that the cover doesn't appear to show an inch of Armani, of which she's a spokesperson. That's highly commendable in today's age.
    I'm keen to read the profile online because she apparently made some odd comments, but I'll wait for my issue.

    No snark allowed in this thread, thank you very much! :p

    Oh, yes! Will Davidson's aesthetic is suited perfectly to British Harper's Bazaar and even though the magazine insists on using the same old concept, Davidson's work has felt like a breath of fresh air over the past two months.

    The newsstand cover is beautiful, love the red and find the shot overall to be just perfect for October. My only critique with Bazaar lately is that subscribers are beginning to get the short end of the straw with these uneventful and dull subscribers covers. At this point I'd just prefer the newsstand cover but with less text!

    First, Vogue Japan’s supreme October cover, and now this… How nice to see a straightforward, effortlessly elegant, and tonally timeless shot full of a gentlewoman’s mood and radiance. And with an equally relaxed layout. And the subcriber’s cover is solid as well. October is starting out strong and leaving September in the dust so far.

    (That Amy shot can’t even compare if it were in another dimension LOL)

    Not much happening on the cover, but still beautiful. If the rest of the October issues don't get me excited, I'll be buying this.

    The make-up really washes her out and demonstrates a weird contrast to the richness of the dress. They might be going for juxtaposition but to me, it just doesn't work.

    Will Davidson out shooting in the backyard again, zzzZZZzzz. The inside editorial is as boring as last month's Cameron Russell spread. Which is a shame, because the covers were both perfection.

    The overall cover composition is lovely. Nice text and photo interaction. Like somebody at HB Oz actually knows about left and right text alignment. And yet again thanks to aggressive retouching, Cate's face looks extremely washed out/lacks definition. Plus the photo color balance looks off (overwhelming beige blandness a la Hawkesworth). Cate's pose in the last editorial shot is quite striking.

    My edited images:

    The red dress is interesting but overall both covers are really quite boring.

    I wondered whether the cover would look more striking on the newsstand, but the make-up is as washed-out as the scan suggests.

    It's a pleasantly hefty issue, but the editorials seen dull. I was flicking through it while waiting in a store, so perhaps I missed the good stuff, but I didn't see any of the sweeping landscapes or colour-intense scenes that are usually the high point of the issue.

    It all seems nice enough, but I won't be rushing out to get it, I'll be taking my time.
