There’s zero denying the fact that Samira Nasr has delivered some questionable covers at the helm of Harper’s Bazaar. (Like the ones starring Renée Zellweger, Nicole Kidman, Beyoncé and Gigi Hadid.) But make no mistake Bazaar‘s annual beauty issue ticks all the right boxes. In what appears to be a new tradition, the publication secures a handful of models for its May edition with this year’s lineup featuring Lauren Hutton, Jill Kortleve, Imaan Hammam and Sora Choi. The ladies each pose for individual covers captured by photographers Cass Bird, Josh Olins, Renell Medrano and Amy Troost respectively.
Naturally with multiple covers to choose from, one or two really stand out. “I must say it’s a very nice selection of covers. Although very detached from one another, each cover looks quite good… Imaan’s is an instant favorite,” voiced aracic.
“Appears that Bazaar‘s May covers are the only ones worth looking at! Always nice to see models make the covers of mainstream fashion titles regardless of the outcome. My two instant faves are Lauren Hutton and Imaan Hammam (who just always delivers)!” raved vogue28.

“What a lovely cast of models. Just fabulous to see Lauren Hutton, she is still as sparkling as ever. A true icon!” declared VogueParisMonAmour.
Everyone else, however, is underwhelmed. “Happy for them, but none got me excited!” noted DK92.
“Leave it to Samira Nasr to have an all-star cast look as boring as possible,” said SLFC.
“Imagine getting this cast together and then producing not a single memorable cover,” echoed KINGofVERSAILLES.
“There’s no soul,” critiqued a disapproving thiago:).
