Despite our intense dislike of the new direction over at Harper’s Bazaar, there is zero denying the fact that the magazine has major pull when it comes to securing cover subjects. Over the last several months we’ve encountered Awkwafina, Megan Thee Stallion, Jane Fonda, Precious Lee, Megan Rapinoe along with Gigi Hadid. Now for the title’s biggest offering on the print calendar, it secures none other than Beyoncé for September 2021. On a selection of special covers, the global superstar poses before the lens of Campbell Addy with collaborative styling from Samira Nasr and Marni Senofonte. For the three covers, Beyoncé dons pieces from Adidas x Ivy Park, Valentino, Gucci as well as Tiffany & Co. jewelry (which she was just announced the face of alongside husband Jay-Z).
For our forum members, the outcome is a major disappointment. “Catastrophically bad. This looks so cheap,” said dfl-001.
“I wish magazines would give the high-fashion treatment to her…her magazine covers are so underwhelming,” THD96 chimed in.
“Beyoncé is a drop-dead beautiful woman yet her covers and editorials rarely manage to capture her beauty and energy. She posts better pictures on her Instagram,” stated an unimpressed Suhzie.

“I’m convinced Beyoncé’s U.S. Vogue April 2009 cover by Mario Testino will remain the best she’s ever looked on the pages of a fashion magazine because this is an embarrassment. Yet ANOTHER nonevent under Nasr,” voiced vogue28.
“Horrible. I have lost all faith in Samira Nasr. They should have called Carine Roitfeld to replace Glenda Bailey…” added kasper!.
“A big NO to all three,” proclaimed liv4beauty.
While Handbag Queen described the covers as “lackluster.”
