Chinese Harper’s Bazaar Taps Charlize Theron for October Issue (Forum Buzz)

It’s a rare occasion when the Chinese edition of Harper’s Bazaar strikes our fancy, but the October 2014 cover has stopped us in our tracks. The magazine has released its latest installment with Charlize Theron on the front cover. The issue marks the 28th anniversary for the monthly fashion bible. The Oscar-winning actress is, of course, wearing Christian Dior, and was photographed by Nico Bustos with Leslie Fremar on styling duties.

Members of our forums are more than happy to see Charlize on the front cover of the magazine. “I’m loving this. Simple and sleek. A surprising exclusive from HB China. I like the images posted so far, she looks a lot like her royal compatriot Princess Charlene here,” commented Benn98.

“I love the B&W with a touch of blue. And she looks beautiful,” agreed gazebo.

TaylorBinque noted how well the actress wears the clothing: “Let’s talk about representing the brand at its best here. Charlize looks absolutely captivating and works those Dior pieces like a pro.”

A few previews of the cover story can be found inside the thread here. “I like the second image more for the cover. That would have looked like an i-D cover though hmm,” speculated coutugh.

“I really dislike her short hair, she used to have goddess hair. But now — just boring. Still, I think this cover is better than her recent Vogue, only because it has a more artistic touch,” wrote Srdjan, referring to Charlize’s recent U.S. Vogue June 2014 cover.
