Guess Who Is Featured On The Cover Of Russian ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ Magazine


The new issue of Russian Harper’s Bazaar magazine is out and it features an actress that we all know … and hardly recognize. When I first saw this coverphoto, I had absolutely NO IDEA who it was. My initial reaction was that the covergirl was one of those Academy Award-nominated actresses who got a lot of love during awards season but is not yet a household name. When I found out who it actually is … I was completely surprised. Maybe it’s just me but … if I wasn’t told who this actress is, there’s no way I would’ve guessed correctly. Take a look at the full coverphoto below and give your best guess. Can YOU guess which actress is featured on the cover of the May issue of Russian Harper’s Bazaar magazine?

She’s kept a low profile recently and has rarely been seen under the spotlight. But now Renee Zellweger has come back with a bang. Albeit on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, Russia looking somewhat airbrushed as she returns to a similar 1920s look which she adopted in her hit musical Chicago. The Bridget Jones’s Diary actress has posed for the front of the May issue looking preened to perfection for the shoot … Renee didn’t have a hair out of place for the magazine cover with her blonde locks styled in loose waves. The 42-year-old channelled a show girl once more as she wore a beaded gold dress with a matching bejewelled head piece. And she completed the look off with a large feather boa over her right shoulder.

Renée Zellweger … can you believe it? I honestly do not recognize her at all in this photo. Now that I know it’s her I can kinda see it but … the folks who retouched this image should be given a medal. The photo is fantastic … but I’m not sure if it’s much of a compliment to Ms. Zellweger if this amazing photo was retouched to the point that she is unrecognizable. Do you see Renée in this photo?

    haha I knew it was Renee cause of her eyes & nose :-)

  • brittany

    It seems like the top half of her face is hers, but not the bottom half.

  • Nat

    It’s like a fusion of J. Aniston and Sarah Jessica Parker-and then they airbrushed it like crazy-meh,at least she doesn’t look squinty and chipmunk cheeked.

    • @Nat — YES! The missing squint & chipmunk cheeks are what threw me off.

  • Fabio

    haha c’mon! I could tell it was her with only half the pic lol

  • Teri

    I guess Renee too – but her lips are definitely different her eyes are actually not all squinty like they usually are – I’d say she looks good overall. Airbrushed and lip plumped but good.

  • JK

    I though it might be Christina Applegate or Julie Benz. Everyone’s starting to look alike!

  • Bea

    I thought it was Winslet

  • Slave4UBB

    I thought it was the woman from Dharma and Greg.

  • Seth

    I don’t know Trent. I definitely knew who she was. Going a little overkill on the lip injections hardly makes her a chameleon.

  • Jackie

    I guessed it was Renee b/c of her eyes, but those lips look weird. :/

  • Goofy

    Yeah, I knew it was Renee right off the bat as well.

  • Bounds

    Looked like they used half of Cate Blanchett’s face and Madonna’s personal photoshopper.

  • Hope

    From the thumbnail I really thought it was Juliette Lewis!! On closer inspection, her mouth gave it away for me…

  • Liz

    To me it looked like Juliette Lewis!

  • Ellvee

    I thought it was Juliette Lewis. That is NOT a compliment. I don’t know what they did to Renee but this is not good at all.

  • Lexifer

    Actually the weird slant to the lips made me think of Celine dion. But I knew it was her from her eyes and nose.

  • Diana

    I could instantly tell that it was Renee Zellwegger. HMMM. She does look really airbrushed, though!

  • Megsterg

    I guessed Renee, but man why would they choose such an unflattering picture. What are her lips doing?

  • i also thought juliette lewis at first! and everyone else says the mouth looks weird, but that’s honestly the only way i knew it was ol’ Pinchy herself. those definitely aren’t Pinchy’s eyes!

  • aimie

    i knew who it was the first time i looked at the smaller pic. shrugs. she looks like herself to me, a little plumper around the face… in a good way!

  • Jessicagiovanna

    Did she have work done on her eyes? Sure she really squint as much?

    Reminded me of Seinfeld… She’s bizarro Renee

  • Lisa

    I stared at this for 3 minutes and decided on Jen Aniston or Renee Z. Woo hoo!

  • Shannon

    I recognized her immediately. She looks like she’s put a bit of weight on IN A GOOD WAY!!!! She looks good!!! Airbrushed but good!

  • Ava

    I recognized her immediately too, from the first photo.

  • rOXy

    I recognized her immediately. Her mouth gave it away. But it is still kind of a weird picture. Like her head was photoshopped onto the neck. It just sort of seems to be floating there. The right cheek margin from beneath her eye to her chin just looks fakity fake fake.
