Lovely face with killersmile
Body confident and yet we see no body
I thought that was Eva Mendes, not Ashley.
Literally could they zoom in on her face any closer?
Finally a cover from British Harper's Bazaar which feels fresh and somewhat relevant with what's going on in the world (and outside the walls of a stately home). Ashley Graham's a much-welcomed sight here and for once, I'm actually keen to see more from the issue!
Is this the newsstand cover? It doesn't look standard (no eye contact), but it's interesting. I like the colours.
Body confident but no body. Shame on Harpers.
I like it. She has a nice smile.
She does have a fantastic face, I think, with that generic brunette beauty that worked so well for Cindy Crawford. So if this were anyone other than someone making a career out of "body confidence", I'd think it was a great cover.
This trend of fashion magazines continually telling us how wonderful someone's body is, while making a big effort to hide their body... I now put those cover stories straight into my mental wastebasket.
A few more pics, the other covers + some of the interview:
the whole team should be embarrassed for having the nerve to zoom in on her face while supposedly celebrating Ashley and her body. The shot also looks like the beginning of the ed, not the cover. Enough with the '150 years' rubbish, they've only been called Harper's Bazaar for a decade or so, we all still remember Harper's & Queen! It only makes sense on the American edition.
Not a fan of this cover
Hang on this is the newsstand cover???? How underwhelming! Body politics aside, I don't think the shot actually works for this edition. But it's something different, and if it can win the likes of Vogue28 over as a reprieve, then I suppose it's fine.
Not to be mean, but I find all the magazine coverage Ashley seems to be getting a bit proportionate to her runway and campaign career. Especially in the UK. If she is in fact this trailblazing crusader undoing the status quo of fashion modelling, how come we don't see her booking campaign after campaign then?
Thanks for posting the link, Kate! I don't like the styling, it's very lazy for British Harper's. All good and well if they want to use simple denim pieces, but set in a studio would've been perfect. No need for a garden bench.
Love Justine Picardie to bits, but I do side-eye the fact that the UK edition seems also to be celebrating the anniversary. In a way it feels like dishonesty from a marketing perspective. An impulse buyer might be under the impression that this specific edition is 150 years old, when they are in fact 88yo (debatable).

So true! it's just like Kate Upton, colossal magazine coverage and covers for little to no campaign and runway work. Ashley is kind of one those pseudo-models who may or may not have steadily worked previously, but through media exposure has been bestowed as a supermodel and is suddenly on the ANTM judging panel when really she's done limited work. She's a great icon for diversity, and a hard working and kind person, but until i see her steadily booking more than pro bono magazine shoots, i'm reluctant to call her a trailblazer. To be clear, i want her to book more than that as well, because i genuinely want to see her consistently booking big fashion campaigns.
Justine's use of the '150' is odd, but Aussie Bazaar were even sneakier and recently reprinted a feature from the British edition about the history of the magazine and their anniversary, when the whole article was specifically referencing Bazaar UK and not the Australian edition at all. I found that really cheap, why cheat your readers and print something commemorating an entirely different magazine?
Valerija Kelava!!! Can't wait
I love both the newsstand and the subscribers cover!
