Carmen Kass is one of the models I’m fond of. Because of her modeling and because of her extra – curricular activities as well (Carmen is a reputable chess player, she even ran for the European Parliament once!).
However, I strongly believe that this cover doesn’t do her any justice! Harper’s Bazaar January 2013’s simple, yet potentially controversial cover was photographed by Nico but seriously lacks appeal and aesthetic grace. And this sorrows me – it’s not like Carmen Kass gets a fashion magazine cover every month! So when she finally gets one, it looks like this? With this much Photoshop and actual lack of styling, anyone could’ve pulled the cover. Why pay a top class model to do it? (maybe the inside pictorial will show better taste and more glamour? For now, the lovely people at tFS only scooped this cover so far.)
