After recently featuring Vanessa Kirby and Serena Williams on the cover, British Harper’s Bazaar welcomes back the ever-gorgeous Ashley Graham for August 2018. Photographed by Alexi Lubomirski, Ashley is a breath of fresh air on two covers this month, with styling from Miranda Almond. The soon-to-be face of David Yurman and Marina Rinaldi is all smiles for the charming newsstand cover (below), working a ruffled floral number from Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda. In the subscriber cover (after the jump), Ashley evokes ‘la dolce vita’ (albeit photographed on location in New York City) wearing a red leopard Marina Rinaldi dress while tossing flowers over the balcony.
One cover, in particular, stood out to our forum members. “Oh wow, the newsstand cover turned out amazing! Like night and day from the other cover. Love not only the lilac, but also the jovial mood which looks genuine. Subscribers got duped, sadly,” voiced Benn98.
“Oh wow! That newsstand cover is STUNNING! It looks refreshing and really made me smile. I love how you can see her curves with the dress. That subs cover is a mess. Christmas came too early. Sucks to be a subscriber this month,” echoed MON.

“I usually like and prefer UK Bazaar‘s subscriber covers but this time, the newsstand one is gorgeous!” Tauriel confessed.
Evidently, the cover for subscribers was a total flop. “What exactly is happening here? Who sits on their balcony fence like that? Is this a girl blowing a last kiss to her fans before jumping?” asked dodencebt.
“This looks like the story of a crazy Italian opera singer throwing flowers at her fans, and making sure they get a good look at her famous legs,” mocked tigerrouge.
Honeycombchild felt the same way, commenting, “What a bizarre image. Why is she doing that? The balcony I can get with, the flower throwing I could be on board with at a push, but the leg straddling the balcony railing? No.”
“Absolutely idiotic,” slammed Les_Sucettes.
