It will be honest to say that Harper’s Bazaar wasn’t our go-to journal down on the newsstand final 12 months. And we didn’t have excessive hopes for the American title for 2020. For February, Gwyneth Paltrow returns for her umpteenth Bazaar cowl, this time earlier than the lens of photographer Zoey Grossman. Whereas we love a vibrant and vibrant cowl for February — and Gwyneth delivers simply that sporting one among Tom Ford’s breast plates within the refreshing newsstand cowl (beneath) and Gucci for the subscribers’ various (after the bounce) — the plain retouching was fairly off-putting.
“I actually like this,” expressed a pleasantly shocked MON.
“By Harper’s Bazaar standards, this one is a masterpiece! Everything looks quite lovely compared to the rest of their covers,” proclaimed aracic.
“Considering it’s a Glenda Bailey-commissioned cover? Magnificent. The retouching is as usual way over the top, but the composition of the image looks fresh,” echoed Benn98.

Discussion board member dodencebt felt the identical method: “I unapologetically love Gwyneth and this is actually a stunning, albeit overly retouched, shot of her.”
“Gwyneth looks stunning and that metallic Tom Ford bustier contradicts the laid-back styling of her nicely, making the cover look fierce, fabulous and feminine all at the same time,” authorised slayage.
Though not everybody preferred what they noticed. “She looks inhuman at this point, so retouched. You can’t tell her age or if she’s made by computer or is a real person. I also find her extremely beige and super boring, the cover itself is super generic and dull,” declared Bertrando3.
“My god, when will we be rid of Glenda and her awful reign of the same awful cover subjects over and over!” complained Miss Dalloway.
