The cover was an instant hit. “Love this mood. Props to WSJ. Magazine for publishing a simple yet gorgeous cover!” praised bluestar.

“I’d maybe amp up the styling, but this is a stunning shot. Micaiah Carter is the photographer whose name should be on everyone’s lips because he has been doing great work and recently proved with Megan Thee Stallion‘s Marie Claire cover that he can flip between commercial and avant-garde photography,” Benn98 chimed in.

“I kind of like the realism regarding the photography. The outcome is quite elegant and powerful that gives you a sense of hope,” appreciated JohannesL.

“Love the cover and I love her!” confessed mepps.

TheoG used the word “gorgeous” to describe the cover, while BlueRuin thought it was “lovely.”

“Micaiah Carter is the one to watch. The photography here is beautiful. Not the kind of image I would choose for a cover image, don’t know why they couldn’t have gone closer. Still, I’ll take what I can get,” said Fiercification.

“I love WSJ. Magazine‘s full-body shot covers. They’ve done it before in the past — one of my favorites is Emma Stone‘s from 2015,” commented Yohji.
