Claire Danes Outshines Everyone Else on W Magazine’s ‘The New Royals’ Issue (Forum Buzz)

W magazine deserves some recognition for consistently producing visually stimulating covers. The title served up Gigi Hadid for September, gave us Taraji P. Henson for August and now delivers six different personalities for its annual “The New Royals” issue and the covers certainly have us talking. W secured Julianne Moore, Allison Williams, Adam Driver, Claire Danes, Greta Gerwig and Jourdan Dunn, who were each shot by Dutch photographic duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

Fair to say, one cover stood out from the rest. “Claire Danes’ cover is by far the best. Love how sunned and bronzed she looks. That feels very fresh for a fashion magazine cover,” expressed a satisfied dior_couture1245.

“I’m only here for Claire, she looks so good on the cover,” added KateTheGreatest.

In agreement was MON: “Claire Danes’ is by far the best! It’s different from the rest and it looks so natural. Love it.”

Also showing Claire some love was Oxymore. “Claire looks amazing!” she announced with marsnoop2 echoing, “The BEST Claire Danes has ever looked!”

Marc10 was also full of enthusiasm, declaring, “Inez & Vinoodh are the best portrait photographers in the game, like, by far. I don’t know why magazines even waste money on other people.”

Soon after, discussion took a turn for the worst. “What a random bunch. What’s the connection here? They should have just done a new Hollywood cover, tbh,” suggested an underwhelmed HodanChloe.

“I wanted to love it and be excited about it but I can’t! There is no rhyme or reason to the assortment of people featured, with or without connection to the theme title,” complained gazebo.
