We just don’t know what to think of Claire Danes‘ latest Harper’s Bazaar cover. The Homeland star currently fronts the October 2014 issue of the British edition wearing a gabardine and leather Prada dress. She’s photographed by Bazaar regular Alexi Lubomirski, who shot the actress for a classic black and white portrait image. The black and white photography continues inside, where Claire is seen wearing a range of looks from Zac Posen, Salvatore Ferragamo and Lanvin, styled by Leith Clark.
The cover has received mix reactions from our forum members. “Love her so probably biased, but it’s a gorgeous cover, I love the font of the masthead in contrast to the B&W image used. Also thank god they left her skin texture, and few tiny lines intact! It looks so fresh, Lubomirski lately is letting his subjects breathe, something others like Testino need to learn!” raved Miss Dalloway.
“I always love B&W pics used as covers. I like her and the sad mood of the cover…” echoed kokobombon.
However, most weren’t feeling Bazaar‘s latest effort. “Typically like Alexi’s work and love B&W photos, but this just doesn’t work with Claire and not digging the yellow and pink text at all,” disapproved justaguy.
“I’ve taken better selfies than that.. And why is the word Fashion just hanging around doing nothing?” questioned A.D.C.
Sharing the majority opinion was tigerrogue, who wrote, “I do like Claire, but I have no interest in seeing her in fashion editorials, I usually don’t see any spark in them. That doesn’t detract from how I feel about her acting, or what she has to say in any interview, but when it comes to shoots… they typically do nothing for me.”
“Gosh this magazine is starting [to] bore me…” slammed an unimpressed KissMiss.
