We were half expecting to see Emilia Clarke on the cover of U.K. Harper’s Bazaar this month but were pleasantly surprised to see Helena Bonham Carter gracing the June 2016 issue instead. Making for an extremely refreshing cover subject among the sea of regular faces at the newsstand, the eccentric Brit actress wears a Burberry coat layered over a Stella McCartney dress as she braves the chilly British weather. Taking to the great outdoors for the shoot captured by photographer Tom Craig, Helena looks terrific on the cover sent out to subscribers (pictured below).
Members of our forums were thrilled with Bazaar‘s latest effort. “What a wonderfully unpredictable cover choice, and it’s just great to see a woman who will turn 50 soon, on the cover. She has such a great face, I hope the newsstand cover is good!” praised Miss Dalloway immediately.
“Wow! I can only hope the newsstand cover is this captivating,” said dodencebt.
In the same frame of mind was Benn98, writing, “Oh wow!! Helena! Simply mad about the Alice in Wonderland mood here. And the military coat gives it a nice touch. Anxious to see the newsstand cover.”
“This is a really great cover, wasn’t expecting this at all. Helena looks great, the cat is so cute I can’t stop staring at it and I’m very happy for Tom Craig. I like his work, good for him,” applauded a more than elated KateTheGreatest.
Forum member catherine88 shared the same sentiments, declaring, “This is truly wonderful!”
MON agreed: “This is gorgeous!!! The best Helena cover I’ve seen! Wow.”
“A glamorous cat lady. How perfect is that for Helena?!! I love that U.K. Bazaar gives us the high fashion and glamour U.K. Vogue doesn’t. This and their [Nicole] Kidman cover have been standouts,” A.D.C. commended.
Await the newsstand cover and join the party here.
