Marie Claire is powering through with newfound confidence after a fresh redesign back in May, continuing its winning streak into July 2018. Following a series of strong covers with the likes of Hailee Steinfeld, Reese Witherspoon and Emily Ratajkowski, this month’s issue goes to Amy Adams. Not exactly a fashion magazine’s go-to cover girl (unfortunately), Amy shows just how beautifully she can photograph in the intimate newsstand cover image (below), captured by Brigitte Lacombe and styled by Joseph Errico.
The majority of our forum members welcomed the sight of Marie Claire‘s latest with open arms. “For me, this is an exquisite shot, all about subtle colors and gently flattering makeup,” admired tigerrouge.
“It really captures the delicateness of her features! The new art direction is starting to grow on me,” added magsaddict.
“Interesting choice, I quite like it. This is a reminder that Sharp Objects must be coming out soon,” wrote TheoG.

Also liking what they saw was vogue28. “US Marie Claire doesn’t receive the recognition it deserves! We’ve had some beautiful covers over recent months and this is no exception. Amy has photographed beautifully here by Brigitte Lacombe, and the colors in the newsstand cover are wonderful. I love how they went with an unconventional image too!” he wrote.
“Brigitte Lacombe is the most uneventful, lifeless and boring photographer ever,” TaylorBinque said, offering a difference of opinion.
Benn98 wasn’t impressed either: “The thread title alone had me intrigued until I saw the picture! Quite a let-down.”
“Looks somewhat corny,” UrbanStylin complained.
