Our love/hate relationship with Samira Nasr continues with every issue of Harper’s Bazaar. Despite managing to secure A-list talent for the magazine’s front covers, we haven’t been thrilled with recent offerings featuring Venus and Serena Williams, Nicole Kidman and Beyoncé. Although we adored covers with Hunter Schafer and Tracee Ellis Ross. Now Renée Zellweger returns to the mag. The actress was last profiled for the publication way back in 2007. Renée rocks Louis Vuitton for cover one (below) and poses in Celine for cover two (after the jump) before the lens of photographer Mel Bles.
As usual, members of our forums aren’t sold. “Million times better than last month, but not good,” confessed caioherrero.
“Dreadful,” declared mikel.
“Samira Nasr’s styling is subpar, she should have let other better stylists do the job. I’ve already moved on from Samira. Her tenure feels like a wasted opportunity,” said THD96.

“And yet another case of a bad cover from Samira Nasr wasting all the potential of an interesting cover subject. Such a shame,” added aracic.
“My thoughts on Samira Nasr at the helm of Harper’s Bazaar remain unchanged with the unveiling of yet another series of dire covers. Another missed opportunity and another occasion in which I feel this magazine with such a rich history slipping away. A crying shame!” shared vogue28.
“I love Renée Zellweger, but this isn’t working especially because of that horrible hairstyle. It’s vile, looks unwashed and as if she got out of bed and didn’t even bother to comb it,” an underwhelmed WAVES pointed out.
