Harper’s Bazaar Australia features Miranda Kerr on their November 2011 cover. Mrs. Orlando Bloom is decked out in dissonant prints (I spy a Mary Katrantzou skirt) that forum members found to be problematic.
“Gosh this outfit is awful but I must say it is a striking cover,” KissMiss assessed.
“Miranda looks gorgeous. But the styling for the cover is awful,” YoninahAliza posted. “Honestly, I'm so confused by that outfit. Not a flattering look on anyone,” she added.
Clo thought the styling completely overshadowed the model. “The styling is so awful that it does Miranda's beauty no justice at all. Yikes!” he posted.
Not everyone was so down on the cover though. Purpledinosaurxo wrote, “This cover is gorgeous. I love Miranda, such a stunner.”
Sophie02 also approved. “I love it! I think it looks great,” she said.
I personally think the cover is sort of middle of the road, it’s not great, but it’s not terrible either. I like that Australian magazines continue to support Australian models by putting them on their covers, but more than anything I continue to be amazed that Miranda’s post-baby body looks so incredible. It’s kind of dumb that she looks so good.
