Tessa Thompson Earns High Marks for Her Ethereal Marie Claire July 2019 Cover

You could say Marie Claire has been one of our forum members’ must-read fashion magazines lately given the fact that the title has delivered a series of utterly stunning covers featuring Charlize Theron, Sandra Oh, Lupita Nyong’o and Penélope Cruz. And the American glossy isn’t showing any signs of letting standards slip, giving us Tessa Thompson for July 2019. The Men in Black: International actress’ last notable newsstand appearance was for ELLE back in 2017. Photographed by Thomas Whiteside and styled by Joseph Errico, Tessa serves up a delightful and sweet cover image decked out in Chanel.

“Not sure why, but I really like this! Maybe it’s the rose colors, or that whole fragile femininity vibe which has fallen out of favor everywhere else except at British Harper’s Bazaar. This is just beautiful,” echoed an equally impressed Benn98.

“Third wonderful cover in a row. Kudos to Marie Claire,” applauded jorgepalomo.

“Love this for Marie Claire!” proclaimed Joromana.

“Lush and stunning,” stated Urban Stylin.

Although not every one felt the same way. “I’m not a fan of the cover. Tessa usually photographs a lot stronger than this. The ethereal vibe is too soft for her,” critiqued Ken Doll Jenner.
