While some are questioning Harper's choice to shield Gwyneth's face, I think it's a bold move. Her gorgeous hair and five-mile-long legs look stunning on the cover, and the lack of cover lines makes you want to read and see this elusive "new look" they're talking about. A bold move on the part of the editorial team, and one that I think was smart to stick to only the subscribers. People who love the magazine enough to subscribe will love it enough to want to read it despite the unusual cover.
According to the Cut, the magazine's changes include new section names, different typefaces, bigger overall size and thicker paper. Can't wait to see how people react to the new Harper's - including myself!
