Notice anything different about InStyle‘s cover this month? The magazine has answered our cries and brought back the banner-style masthead. (Forum members voiced their dismay over the banner change with the release of the November 2014 and December 2014 covers.) Now moving on to its first issue of 2015, the magazine has tapped Jessica Chastain as its January cover star and enlisted Giampaolo Sgura (who’s shot every cover since October) to capture the redheaded beauty wearing a dress from Celine’s Spring 2015 collection.
The American edition of InStyle made use of Jessica’s photoshoot and commissioned a series of images for inside the January issue, all of which can be viewed on our forums. With Melissa Rubini on styling duties, Renato Campora tending to Jessica’s tresses and Kristofer Buckle applying makeup, we are treated to images that do The Help actress justice. She dons pieces by Vera Wang, The Row, Proenza Schouler and Donna Karan for the cover story.
“Jessica looks amazing. Of course it’s a safe image but it’s InStyle. Purple is one of the colors, like green, which pairs faultless[ly] with redheads,” enthused Benn98.
Srdjan also admired the cover and commented, “Nice January cover. American InStyle thankfully returned to using the sash in the logo.”
We’ve also been treated to a preview of the cover for subscribers, which is different from the one pictured above. “Stunning shot, obviously better than newsstand. I don’t know, they must still drown the image in text for subscribers!” noted Benn98, returning to the thread once again.
