    Wow this is so bad. She looks so bored and boring. Agree with everyone here, I blame Collie for this mess. Never really understand her aesthetic. Its so drab and ugly

    If Samira wants to last at HB, she should forget everything she did at VF because it was bad and starts to think about a proper direction.

    But I have never had faith in her since the beginning as she has always failed to impress me.

    just cancelled my subscription, I really don‘t like what she‘s turned HB into....someone please fire Samira, she clearly doesn‘t know what she’s doing or what HB is all about and why we buy it: fashion

    It's certainly proving to be a case of 'better the devil you know' in terms of what Glenda Bailey once gave us at Harper's Bazaar, because Samira Nasr has been a major disappointment from the very start. Not even a cover under her full control is breaking new ground - a complete non-event.

    I read online Nasr considered using a black photographer but opted for Collier Schorr instead, wanting to see what Megan Thee Stallion would look like through the lens of a gay female. This isn't a pixel on Megan's US Marie Claire cover by Micaiah Carter!

    Nasr was handed the reigns at absolutely the least opportune moment so I’m hesitant to dismiss her version of the magazine just yet, but so far it’s incredibly dull. It’s unfortunate to see that all the excitement around Glenda leaving and Samira’s appointment wasn’t leveraged into a more dramatic and interesting makeover for the magazine.

    The Valentino pictures would make a better cover. I'm gonna wait to see the other editorias, usually are more interesting than the cover editorial.

    Tired of Collier... A more glamorous photographer could've done wonders with Meg.

    This makes me want to take a Xanax... Can anyone post the rest of the stories?
    Another sad, 'real' photography experiment. No embellishments. No sense of composition. Not very aspirational.

    Harper's Bazaar Megan Thee Stallion cover sparks representation debate

    Criticisms of photo shoot for rapper echo previous fashion controversies about photographing black women

    A Harper’s Bazaar cover featuring Megan Thee Stallion has been criticised for its portrayal of the rapper, amid continuing debate over how black people are photographed in fashion.

    The March issue of the venerable magazine has two covers. The first features Megan Thee Stallion in a black bardot top from Saint Laurent. In the second she wears a black cape from Chanel and earrings from Bulgari.

    The images, which see the rapper embracing a minimalist, pared-down look, met with derision in some quarters. Some social media users criticised the lighting, somber mood and general aesthetic.

    “Nah this ain’t it – photographer didn’t even know how to capture Megan’s skin correctly … in any of the pics,” wrote one user.

    “Hopefully (she) learned a lot from this,” another commented: “If you can’t capture dark skinned women just say that.”

    “Y’all clearly need a black creative director on set,” wrote another.

    However, in an Instagram post which was later made private, the photographer Collier Schorr said Megan Thee Stallion, who is known for her glamorous looks, worked with her on the pictures.

    “A most remarkable experience making pictures with Megan Thee Stallion,” Schorr wrote, “who discussed each picture and edited afterwards with me … total collaboration as it should be to make together new images of her at this moment in her life.”

    The rapper, who has modelled for Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty lingerie line and has signed a deal with Revlon cosmetics, told the magazine in an interview her style was evolving.

    “I’m realising that I don’t have to be in full glam every time you see me,” she said, “because I’m just getting more comfortable with myself and more comfortable with my skin.”

    The shoot was styled by Samira Nasr, the magazine’s first black editor-in-chief. Nonetheless, Harper’s found itself at the centre of the latest controversy around representations of famous black women by fashion magazines.

    Last month, Vogue US published a limited number of its Kamala Harris February cover after an online outcry in which a planned cover showing the then vice-president-elect was called “disrespectful” and the photos “whitewashed”.

    In response, the editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, said: “It was absolutely not our intention to, in any way, diminish the importance of [Harris’s] incredible victory.”

    In August, Vanity Fair was praised for hiring Dario Calmese as the first black cover photographer in its 107-year history, to shoot the actor Viola Davis. But the cover was criticised online when Calmese revealed the pose was a homage to The Scourged Black, an 1863 photograph of a freed slave showing scars from multiple whippings.

    US Vogue’s August issue was also criticised, for the way the cover star, the gymnast Simone Biles, was lit and shot.

    Last June, when Nasr’s appointment as editor was announced, Hearst, which owns Harper’s Bazaar, posted a video regarding her vision for the magazine.

    “As the proud daughter of a Lebanese father and a Trinidadian mother, my worldview is expansive and is anchored in the belief that representation matters,” she said, adding that her goal was to “give all voices a platform to tell stories that would have never been told”.

    The Guardian has requested comment from Megan Thee Stallion, Schorr and Harper’s Bazaar.

    Once again, I have to ask, is Anna took the pictures of Kamala herself since there is no mention of the Tyler. The bias is too much, if you not gonna let Schorr getaway with this then why Tyler let that whole fiasco unscratched. This is why Tyler can keep being mediocre because he know woke Twitter will let him a pass. Bad jobs are bad jobs and should be call out equally.

    If I was Samira, I'll make Annemarieke van Drimmelen, Viviane Sassen and Rafael Pavarotti her go to photographers before Vogue snatch them up.

    I might be the only one but I somehow like this. Maybe it’s because the whole layout and everything is so much cleaner now and somehow more desirable - or maybe it’s just Megan and her beauty - either way, the magazine feels much more sophisticated now.

    This! The hypocrisy is too much. And these two cases exemplify this. With Vogue all the blame was put on Anna with Tyler being left off the hook. Now with Bazaar the blunt of the blame is placed on the photographer with Samira given a pass. Talk about picking and choosing. Of course Twitter fingers are faster than actually, I don’t know, doing the research first?!

    The one pose with her looking over the shoulder with her assets on display, stunning.
