We’re all for fresh faces greeting us down at newsstands and Lydia Slater has been delivering just that with the covers of British Harper’s Bazaar. The mag has gifted us Lashana Lynch along with Daisy Edgar-Jones and Gillian Anderson and kick-started 2021 with a fresh-faced Lucan Gillespie. Now we’re treated to Iman for February 2021 courtesy of photographer Paola Kudacki. The 65-year-old icon sports Alexander McQueen on the newsstand cover (below) and a threeASFOUR creation for the subscribers’ alternative (after the jump).
The covers caught the attention of our forum members. “Simple yet so stunning! I’d tone the styling down a bit, but the red and black befit Iman’s icon status. They’ve done her justice,” approved Benn98.
“The cover is a breath of fresh air, love the use of black and white teamed with the red masthead and fonts, which feels bold and refreshing for British Bazaar. No complaints here!” raved vogue28.

But not everyone was in the same frame of mind. “It looks like Australian Bazaar to me. I love seeing Iman, but I’m not crazy about the cover. Maybe it will look more impactful in real life,” said Srdjan.
“I mean, when you make Iman look pedestrian, it’s just game over! From the bad lighting to the horrible styling to the drab black and white shot for February. No!” exclaimed Miss Dalloway.
Meanwhile, annikad described the outcome as “simply stunning,” but do you agree?
