A model ❤️❤️
I’ve missed Liya but I’m not liking this
Can’t wait for the redesign next year
Beautiful composition but I dont like the expression at all.
I don’t like they way she looks at all! And her painful expression isn’t helping either. She looks so diminutive and fragile. Not at all like the powerful strong woman she truly is.
I'm SO happy for her... But the cover is a no for me!
Quite underwhelming, although it's unbelievable Liya would end up on HB US. They could have at least zoom her in or remove the nasty texts. An ''artistic'' image (why do magazine editors believe that if you use an uncropped photograph you did a great, finished job?!) does not work if you use a mainstream placement of texts.
The face of a woman looking forward to a day off.
A wasted potential. Powerful taglines ruined by a rather weak image.
A revolution indeed. She looks tired and over it.
Will reserve judgment until I see Samira's full vision. For now, all I'm seeing is US Harper's Bazaar looking like her European sisters. UK HB, an editor-less edition, remains supreme.
I know Glenda was commercial to a fault, but I’d hoped Samira wouldn’t steer it too far in the other direction. Keep the fantasy and the glamour, just refine it and choose better (or at least less repeat) cover subjects.
Glad she chose a model, at least. I was excited when I saw the thread title to see what they’d done with Liya but this is just boring and amateur. I certainly can’t imagine this selling on newsstands.
Thrilled to see Liya, she's one of my all time favourites. Not a huge fan of the shot though - that vivid yellow is beautiful, but the whole thing feels somewhat unfinished and not cover-worthy, even just cropping it correctly would help a little.
I wish Liya looked happy to be there; I'm really missing the joy in fashion these days and this would have been a great opportunity to do something really buoyant and optimistic: that yellow backdrop in combination with Liya's gorgeous smile, and a stronger pose, would have been fantastic!
Also I'm really disappointed to see there hasn't been a redesign. I was looking forward to a fresh new look for US Harper's Bazaar, but it just looks like a cover of one of the European editions. I'm craving a magazine that really nails the balance of art and commerce; there are so many attempts at unconventional cover images these days but they rarely work for me. I'd love someone to come along and really embrace a commercial approach but in an elevated and sophisticated way - hopefully Samira will do that, and I'm looking forward to seeing how the magazine develops over the next few months.
Her expression is off. Her hair is a mess and the styling is uneventful. It could have been nice. Liya's smile could have been a huge asset to this new era for HB and would match this very joyful color in the background.
A better posture would have changed a lot the whole image. Her body looks ill whereas it is not. A miss for me.
Love Liya as always but wish she looked happier...
This is such a depressing and sad looking cover. Considering that this will come around US Election time, it's really the most optimistic portrayal of "America" I guess. But I love the risk!
We have 2 models on the cover of the 2 major US Fashion magazines. It's kinda exceptional!
Not to mention 2 models of colours. That’s indeed exceptional!
I think that before Naomi, Liya was the last black model to get a solo cover...
And I don't remember seeing a solo cover with a black girl since Tyra in the late 00's.
Oh how beautiful, actually excited for Samira's HB.
The second cover with a good layout of the first cover would've been a dream cover. The second cover is very beautiful.
