We’re forever seeing the same faces on the covers of our favorite magazines (ahem, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid). Interview, however, has always been a magazine that avoids the bandwagon. The American title did us proud in February with a glorious Solange Knowles cover and now gives us actress Michelle Pfeiffer for the month of April. Appearing on Interview‘s latest, the 58-year-old beauty was photographed by Mikael Jansson at Chateau Marmont, lounging about a hotel room wearing Valentino.
Our forums were thrilled to see Pfeiffer, but the choice of cover image was another story. “Ah! I love Michelle. She’s such a fresh cover choice but the result is terrible,” exclaimed a disgruntled MyNameIs straight away.
“I was pleasantly surprised when I saw ‘Pfeiffer’ because I expected one of the usual suspects (Williams or Obama) but they seriously made her look pregnant. The accidental baby bump is all I can see!” dodencebt pointed out in a state of shock.
“I was SO excited when I read the title but the cover itself is not really working for me. I like the color palette but something’s not working,” echoed an uncertain mistress_f.
Mepps agreed, saying, “Awkward body position, and bad Photoshop! Random cover choice. Love Michelle, but she deserved better than this.”
Also quick to express their dismay was forum member lelaid. “I’ve always been a fan of hers and she’s stunning but that cover choice is dull. One of the black & white shots from inside would have been much better,” he acknowledged in suggest.
Honeycombchild shared the same sentiments, writing, “Brilliant cover subject, awful image. The positioning of it all is so awkward! Such a shame. It’s glorious to see Pfeiffer landing a cover!”
“What a great cover choice, as always from Interview. It’s a nice cover!” Miss Dalloway confessed.
