Victoria’s Secret angel Izabel Goulart makes for one heck of a matador on the cover of the April issue of Harper’s Bazaar Espana — albeit one that’s forgotten its pants.
It’s a beautiful and arresting cover, but it’s also very, very naked. But what is it about the pantsless-ness that makes it seems so much more naked than just, well, your average naked cover? Is it the suspense? The way you think that if she’d only just turn one more degree to the left, she’d officially be the Most Naked Ever? Or is it the surprise? The way you think it’s a totally normal cover until you realize, Wait, that model is not wearing pants! What nice long legs she has. I would also like her shoes. Who are they by?
Or maybe that’s just us. What do you think? Do tell.
And, because it seems somewhat related, here’s a quick look back at some the more seriously naked (and seriously pregnant) magazine covers of the last twenty years. (No, Goulart is not pregnant. But lots of her compadres are!)
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
