    It is quite cheesy but ultimately a classic, festive Angelina Jolie x Harper's Bazaar cover. Maybe the bar has been lowered quite a bit but it seems like I'm into anything that's not amateur or overtly offensive looking nowadays.

    Wow, so dated! 'Eat, Drink and Still Fit Into Your Jeans' :lol:
    I find the composition and cropping most criminal. How on earth is Glenda Bailey allowed to prosper? And Angelina's covers are becoming painfully generic.

    Fail!

    A softer expression - a hint of a smile - would have gone a long way, but I'll still take this shot over many of the other covers they've produced this year.

    I'm sure Glenda has a godfather at Hearst...or HB is the number one at selling magazines...otherwise i don't understand..
    Are we sure this is the real Angelina and not her was figure?...just wondering..

    HB less worst cover? Yes. Still ugly? Also yes. Btw, there are 1 or 2 great shoots on the editorial, except the one with that hideous neon wig.

    That last shot could have come straight out of a classic 80s editorial... or an older-style Pirelli calendar. It's on a different level to all the other images.

    The first cover is just so bad and really unflattering. The other shots in the editorial are great though.

    The absolute worst editorial I have ever seen of Angelina in my whole life !!!!!!! US Bazaar has that power you know?! They can make the most beautiful models and celebrities look amazingly cheap, it´s quite a feat lol... I agree with MON though, people come at Anna but this ??? How could anyone would think it´s ``beautiful´´ as a cover or story??? Yes a few shots separately could work on their own but that´s not the purpose here. NEXT!

    She looks possessed on the cover.

    The last shot of the ed looks gorgeous though. Like a lost shot from one of Avedon’s Pirelli calendars.

    Almost couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this earlier and I was going to declare this the worst Angelina Jolie cover I've seen, until I remembered the paparazzi cover from July 2006.

    Solve Sundsbo and team failed to deliver the goods with this one. Yet I can admit the subscribers cover is far superior, as opposed to the atrocious newsstand alternative! Angelina looks... frozen and static (just like me sat here in total shock over how bad this all is).

    The two veil shots are stunning, and the black sheer piece one is something fresh and quirky for them, finally! But again, the cropping of these images is really terrible.

    Amazed to see some body shots of her because she's been more covered up than a nun since the break-up.

    It’s quite terrible! It’s so terrible than it becomes funny!

    Sorry...I'm honestly not mad. Her expression is a bit tragic on the cover, but at least there are nice shots in the veil. And thank God she's not dressed like an exec again, for once!

    I don't like a single one of these photos. Whole editorial is terrifying & unflattering.

    The body shots look crazy photoshopped as well.
