Sarah Jessica Parker’s Harper’s Bazaar Cover Is a Photoshop Disaster (Forum Buzz)

We’re now pretty much done with the Katy Perry reprints, which Harper’s Bazaar bombarded us with last month. Bazaar‘s October installment has been unveiled and is currently the hot topic of discussion on our forums. Sarah Jessica Parker was captured by photographer Alexi Lubomirski, leaving us more or less horrified with the outcome. The bold and unusual cover for subscribers found its way into the thread first (right) while the regular newsstand version arrived fashionably late (left), with SJP wearing Valentino on both.

“Eek, it’s certainly interesting. I just don’t know whether a silhouette like this works well for a cover,” thought Benn98 the moment the subs cover surfaced.

“That is the ugliest, cheapest and most amateur looking cover I think I’ve ever seen,” MyNameIs slammed soon after.

Also not feeling any of Bazaar’s best efforts was Oxymore, laughing, “OMG Photoshop disaster!”

Forum member dfl-001 agreed: “She’s not photogenic so that may explain the darkened silhouette.” Ouch! Later going on to suggest, “If you have to completely rearrange someone’s face with that atrocious Photoshop, maybe it’s time to throw in the towel.”

Nymphaea was quick to throw some shade too. “That’s horribly done!” she shared in horror.

“You’re so right, it’s really unfortunate. What’s happening with her teeth? It looks weird!” Benn98 responded in agreement, returning to the thread to take a closer peek.

“The cover is grotesque! It’s absolutely vile! She really does look like an alien in disguise. What were they thinking?” asked GivenchyHomme.
