Check out the May 2010 Australian edition of Harper’s Bazaar.
It’s an impressive move, especially if you want your magazine to stand out in the sea of monthly glossy covers. The artwork by David Bromley shows a topless Lily Allen with devil horns and a statement choker. The photograph by Alan Gelati came from the magazine’s January 2010 issue, where the 24-year-old singer/actress posed nude for a black and white fashion feature.
The treatment reminds me a bit of Nylon magazine’s edgy personality and artsy layouts. Had they splashed on neon colors, it would have looked like a page from Marvin Scott Jarrett’s mind.
Would you buy the Lily Allen cover of Harper’s Bazaar?
