Lydia Slater is knocking it out of the park at British Harper’s Bazaar. After all, covers featuring Phoebe Dynevor and the magazine’s annual Women of the Year Awards issue with actresses Claire Foy, Jodie Comer, Cynthia Erivo and Sarah Snook have satisfied us to no end. The publication even bestowed upon us a model cover last month (starring Karen Elson) and drops another one for March 2022. Cara Delevingne fronts Bazaar‘s latest going back to the swinging 60s via a pair of covers. Captured by Pamela Hanson with styling from Leith Clark, the Brit supermodel, actress and Christian Dior brand ambassador sports looks from the legendary French fashion house’s retro-inspired Spring 2022 collection on the newsstand cover (below) and the subscribers’ alternative (after the jump).
The covers instantly ignited debate. “Oh, I absolutely adore this!” proclaimed MON.
“Love this,” said liberty33r1b.
“Feels like a breath of fresh air after Karen Elson’s heavy and autumn-like cover from last month! Here for Lydia Slater’s model covers of late and despite this feeling like a backstage shot at a fashion show, I like it. The colors are lovely…” admired vogue28.

“She looks stunning, you can’t deny she has a gorgeous face,” FashionMuseDior pointed out.
Although not everyone was impressed. “When I read Pamela Hanson, I expected something more thrilling than this,” wrote penny609.
“Cara used to be a strong print model, but this just looks like amateur hour,” added Urban Stylin.
“This does nothing for me…” confessed aracic.
“There is so much potential wasted here. Cara deserves better. That said, I am ridiculously happy to see her regardless of the outcome,” admitted Horizontina.
