COVER: GWEN STEFANI BY TERRY RICHARDSON, HARPER’S BAZAAR SEPTEMBER 2012
Posted on August 13, 2012
Gwen Stefani literally “blossoms” on the cover of September’s US Harper’s Bazaar while wearing an candied pink Alexis Mabille Couture hat and Jil Sander gown.
Check out the Terry Richardson lensed editorial here.
While I actually like the cover a lot, I feel like the accompanying editorial is rather bland for my liking. It was could have been so much more dramatic, especially considering how important Harper’s Bazaar are making this issue sound. To me it just looks like she is trying on a bunch of clothes…where’s the actual styling?!
Terry Richardson is very hit and miss for me as sometimes everything he does is just too simple and uninspiring. Thank the Lord for Gwen’s bubbly personality which resonates throughout the images and saves them…but only just.
