    Lol, 60's airhostess? First cover looks like they've photoshopped her neck out. Both covers are awkward.

    A boss owns the airline, they don't dress like the person who hands out the nuts.

    The styling is pretty unfortunate. I wouldn't have guessed in a million years that that red thing is a hat, I thought it was a deflated balloon.

    It kinda works, because she has the presence to pull off that kinda styling.

    You're joking, right? It's as fake as press on nails.

    you're gonna make it after all! the subscriber's cover is too cute! Sure it's gimmicky and a bit awkward, but it's InStyle and they're actors not models, so i'll forgive it. Hats off (pun intended) to Laura Brown for her refresh

    For me, I don't think anything will ever compare to Taraji photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott for W Magazine's August 2015 issue. This is laughable in comparison, and I'm even more so surprised that Julia von Boehm's name is attached to this.

    I love Taraji, but nothing works here, and it's so forced.

    She gives me some Peggy in Mad men vibe and... I dislike it (I love Mad Men though).

    Poor girl.. This cover makes me uncomfortable and thats a pity because you can tell that she have a lot of, lets call, "fashion energy". What a mess..

    When your outfit doesn't match your personality...
    First of all, wrong shoes choice.
    I like the idea of the shoot but the execution is terrible!

    You can tell Taraji is a high heels type of woman...

    Like magsaddict referenced, it looks like a homage to Mary Tyler Moore's TV show complete with a 1970s newsroom and hat toss.
    It looks so stiff though, which is exactly opposite of the spirit of MTM's affable persona.
    I'll blame Fimmano for not eliciting the right energy from Taraji.

    Right, but if she's an actor, why is the 'acting' so bad? Photography is trite of course. That's to be expected with this guy behind the lens. I can literally hear 70s funk playing while looking at these shots. But Taraji's posing makes it even worse. Then there's the styling.

    I agree with @vogue28 . Her best cover yet was the W one. A rip-off, but regardless, she looked great. And she's actually been getting quite a bit of print work.

    So yeah, the inspiration behind the cover and edit is in fact Mary Tyler Moore.
