Justin Bieber & Hailey Bieber cover the March issue of American Vogue

AmfAR New York Gala 2019

Vogue usually doesn’t reveal the next month’s cover this early, which is why this March cover isn’t an official release. Someone leaked this. And I’m glad they did, because WHOA. Some people predicted that if Anna Wintour gave Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas some kind of hokey Vogue cover for their 10 million weddings, then of course Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin/Bieber would get a Vogue cover for whatever they’re doing. For what it’s worth, I believe Hailey and Justin are legit married – I think they did a civil service in a New York judge’s office last year, and that’s why their “religious wedding” plans have been somewhat low-key. There’s no sense of urgency with them anymore.

Considering how terrible this cover could have been, I think we should embrace the positives. Justin doesn’t have a dirtlip. His short hair isn’t great, but he looks like he showered for the cover. Hailey looks bridal. Their pose is interesting too. My biggest complaint is that I think Hailey is trying too hard to give FACE and she ends up looking unengaged with Justin. Justin is doing all the work to look romantic here. But honestly, this is… almost iconic.

As for their plans for a “religious” ceremony wedding – first it was supposed to be in Canada, then last month, TMZ said it was going to be in LA, on March 1st (Justin’s birthday). But they postponed it again and now they don’t know what they’re going to do.

    That woman has a horrible taste in denim outfits.

    • Kitten says:

      Is this what passes for fashion these days, a denim tuxedo?
      I can’t.

    • Veronica S. says:

      Haha, I was just going to say that I am always distracted by how terrible their combined fashion sense is.

    • Shane says:

      Terrible taste, indeed, but what drew my eye is how strongly she looks like her father.

      And that’s not a compliment.

      • Christina says:

        +1. All I see is Daniel Baldwin in her face, and my blood pressure goes up from the toxic masculinity of her dear old dad. I want to know her as an individual, but she is young and developing. In my mind, she is showing herself to be a product of her home.

      • Olive says:

        @Christina her dad is Stephen, not Daniel

      • wolfgirl says:

        To me they look weirdly… alike?
        As though you could do a face-swap and they’d still look similar in a creepy, strange, somehow totally wrong way…

  2. Brunswickstoval says:

    That face these “influencers” give is just the worst. I watched the Fyre documentary and felt like gouging my own eyes out with all the intense faces the influences were giving in the promo videos. It’s so distracting. She prob annoyed me the most.

    • Giddy says:

      That is just such a superior look. Meh.

    • Bella Bella says:

      I think she looks like a man here. Or mannish. Definitely not soft or feminine. And she looks way older than him.

      • Fiona says:

        Agreed. Don’t know if it’s the angle or way her face is tilted but if you cover the photo from the neck down, her face looks incredibly masculine. I do like that she isn’t plastered in makeup though.

        I wish them well.

  3. Becks1 says:

    That is a really bad cover, right? I’m not just missing something arty and cool about it? It looks like Hailey is trying to do her own thing and be all “Vogue cover model” and Justin is just hanging on. It’s just….weird.

    • smcollins says:

      No, you’re not missing anything. It’s really pretty basic (I know that word gets thrown around a lot these days but in this case it’s true). It’s like she forgot Justin is even there, she’s so focused on the camera. And why is she in what appears to be a wedding (ish) dress and he’s shirtless? I don’t see 2 people in love, I see 2 people who seem to be posing for 2 different photo shoots mashed together. But most importantly, why am I giving this so much thought?

      • otaku fairy says:

        “And why is she in what appears to be a wedding (ish) dress and he’s shirtless?” If Justin Bieber were to be replaced by Kylie Jenner in this pic, and Hailey was replaced with her man, it would tigger so much fauxrage and pearl-clutching. Jennifer Lawrence in a low-cut dress around men was enough to do it. Bieber is another guy who has gotten away with a lot of stuff sexually that famous women can’t.

    • FHMom says:

      It is bad. They both look so …..unattractive. Maybe it’s supposed to be ironic?

    • jessamine says:

      They look photoshopped together, honestly. Zero engagement.

    • Kitten says:

      It is absolutely terrible.

    • broodytrudy says:

      I don’t find her particularly attractive. I think it’s just her face, and not so much the posing. 😬

      Justin looks weird and blotchy. This is not a good cover at all.

    • Steff says:

      The word that screams out to me is bland, but it’s US Vogue so go figure. Hailey looks like some random girl plucked out of a mall and Justin looks like his ratty self per usual.

    • Sunnydaze says:

      I’m going to say it: She looks very, very aged here.

      It looks like a little boy posing with a much older woman. An older woman who is very impressed with herself that the hottest football player at her son’s high school is madly in love with her.

      Sorry for the snark, it’s been a helluva day. But I also stand by it.

  4. LoonyTunes says:

    He looks like a lost kid and she just looks basic. Vogue has jumped the shark.

  5. minx says:

    I like her eyeglasses in the bottom pic. That’s all I got.

    • Erinn says:

      I think she looks MUCH better with the glasses. It brings something interesting to her face. There’s something just a little ‘off’ about it and I can’t put my finger on it. She just gives me a weird vibe.

      Biebs looks like a teenager who dropped out, posing with his girlfriend who’s going to prom. It’s sort of sad.

  6. C says:

    Her face is the best. She looks so bored.

    • Pandy says:

      Right? Like she’s realizing the not-very-cute-guy clinging to her bosom is now her problem lolll.
      Something nice … that terrible longer hair he’s been sporting isn’t immortalized on the cover.
      And they’re not wearing his beige clothing line.

  7. Redgrl says:

    Between these two and the references to the instamodels on the cover either Vogue is playing a sick joke on its audience or it has truly gone into the toilet…

    • boredblond says:

      Remember when they used to be an iconic classy mag? (yes, i’m very old,,) Now they’re sort of People with better photography-

  8. WingKingdom says:

    She is prettier in street photos than she is on that cover. I think Vogue could have done better.

  9. RBC says:

    I still feel something is “off” about this relationship and now marriage. Can’t put my finger on it but it almost feels like they are trying to shove their relationship in someone’s face. Strange

    • Kitten says:

      I feel like they’re drug buddies. I don’t get “love” from them, I get codependence. And the pics we’ve seen of them together where Justin is hanging all over her or crying (wtf) makes me think it’s opiates. This is complete conjecture on my part so don’t @me but that’s the vibe I get.

      • Amy Tennant says:

        In the article (take it with whatever portion of salt you think best) it says Justin is off drugs, but Hailey has never done drugs out of a fear of a genetic predisposition to addiction. Which is plausible. If my dad did as much coke as Stephen Baldwin did in his youth, not to mention Uncle Alec and Uncle Daniel… it’s just possible she might have had the wherewithal to look at that and take caution.

  10. NotHeidisGirl says:

    Good thing neither of them is modelling professionally *cough*

  11. Lily says:

    Vogue US has never really had a good record of maintaining their fashion magazine brand, I mean they have never been VOGUE Italia/Portugal. But this past decade, Wintour has completely reshaped the magazine into People Magazine 2.0. It’s kind of sad to watch cause the sales are still declining despite these more commercial covers.

  12. OriginalLala says:

    I thought this was a joke cover when I first saw it

  13. Birdie says:

    Why waste the money on a big wedding now? They are married.

    • Erinn says:

      They might as well just sell the rights to a magazine, get dressed up and take some fancy photos and have a party with family/friends. I mean, if you can pocket enough from a magazine you might as well just focus on getting some nice photos done and having a fun evening. I would never bother with a ceremony in their position.

    • Some chick says:

      SponCon?

  14. Mia4s says:

    Ummm, welfare check on Anna Wintour? Covering the sponsored weddings of desperate attention seekers and now Bieber and…whatever her name is? Vogue of a decade ago would never have gone so low end.

  15. Sara says:

    GIGI
    KENDALL
    HAILEY

    I guess Anna Wintour isn’t trying very hard to find interesting fresh faces.

  16. joro says:

    She’s not a good model but she looks pretty on the cover. There’s something very reminiscent of Caroline Bisset about the cover. Maybe it’s the blonde hair and vague waspness…

    • Amy Tennant says:

      Now that you mention it, I see it.

      Face it, if Annie L can’t find your best angles, you don’t have any.

  17. grabbyhands says:

    Man, how the might have fallen -

    Admittedly, not a fashionable person by any means, but I was always under the impression that a Vogue cover was THE high pinnacle of any fashionista’s life and it was considered high brow (for lack of a better word) in the word of fashion magazines – and now they’re reduced to giving covers to the Kardashians and Justin Bieber. That seems embarrassing.

  18. Babs says:

    She looks like a Baldwin bro in drag on that cover, and he looks like her son. How on earth did this picture made the cut?

  19. Ariel says:

    Now I’m concerned that Anna Wintour has suffered a stroke or something.
    Someone should check on her.

  20. Weaver says:

    She has a very masculine look here and also looks much older than him for some reason.

  21. Lucy says:

    She looks absolutely over it.

  22. KBeth says:

    Did anybody really want this, I mean…why???

  23. Eugenie says:

    I’m sorry but I just don’t see what everyone else sees in her. I definitely don’t see model. She’s a very pretty woman, but also she looks so much like her father thats all I see when I look at her.

  24. frankly says:

    My headline: Frankly will rip the cover off the March issue of Vogue as soon as it arrives.
    Which I’ll also be doing with AD and whatever K.J. ends up on the front of my issue.

  25. Who ARE These People? says:

    John and Yoko on the cover of Rolling Stone this is not.

  26. The Mehgetarian says:

    I’m maybe missing something, but to me she looks like a fed up mom who’s going to lose it if her dirty faced toddler doesn’t get off her lap for the eighth time that morning.

    Amazing cheekbones though.

  27. Oh no says:

    It’s like she’s the savior he’s been looking for. His religion. This is not a relationship of equals. To me, the cover shows exactly that, it captured the essence of their relationship. Why would Vogue want this on their cover though? Where is the sophistication that one expects from their covers? When Carrie Bradshaw clutched her Vogues on sex and the city… This is not the Vogue she’d be clutching.

  28. Who ARE These People? says:

    Insert the word “blanket” after “security” on the cover and it’ll represent their dynamic better.

  29. Oh no says:

    This, apparently, is the Vogue cover we deserve.

  30. EMc says:

    I’m going to be the only one, but I think this is the best I’ve seen Justin look in a very long time. I dont get her, or her appeal. Shes just average attractive. And I will never for the life of me understand why they dress so damn bad. Like, I get it, you wanna be comfortable when you’re out running errands. But I’m here to tell you, I work at a Walmart in rural Virginia and the majority of people I see dress nearer and classier than these two.

  31. Dorothy says:

    Sorry but she’s so thirsty and unattractive to me her name gets her far poor Justin never listened to him (I admit one song I’ve heard) but yikes she’s so using him in every picture. Proves how unattractive that her name was never enough she had to hitch her wagon. The religious thing Isn’t happening because they’re probably not eligible – never will be either

  32. Winnie Cooper's Mom says:

    I could see him getting the cover if he had married Selena. But this, I do not get. In all their pap shots together over the past year, they appear depressed, homely and a little drugged out. Not exactly #couplegoals

    Vogue can do better. Frankly, I would have been happier to see Gaga and BCoop share the cover than this mess.

  33. Snappyfish says:

    Bland. Boring. Basic.

  34. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Can’t believe they’re on the cover of Vogue.

  35. Lizzie says:

    imagine getting all dressed up for a vogue cover and you stupid ass husband waltzes in with no shirt looking like a white trash hillbilly and they take two shots and are like “that’s it – we got it”

  36. Hollah says:

    All I can see is how green their skin is here. Terrible photo processing!

  37. CuriousCole says:

    The photos are all varying levels of ridiculousness, but I read excerpts from their interview and I was actually impressed. They are very aware of how difficult marriage is, what their problems are, and they seem to be making quite an effort at making it work.

  38. Aysla says:

    Vogue is no longer high-fashion, high-brow, or high-anything. It’s just another tabloid at this point. How far the mighty have fallen.

  39. hogtowngooner says:

    Her model face is just so boring and bland. I think she’s pretty (more so in candids IMO), but if she wasn’t a Baldwin or married to Bieber, she’d be nowhere near a Vogue cover.

  40. clairej says:

    What a joke. Hailey is the thirstiest of the thirstiest instragam models. She wasn’t getting anywhere by modelling, only getting exposure through her famous friends she was so dull. Now she has everything sorted. No way a year or 2 ago she could have dreamt of Vogue. Seriously are either of them Vogue worthy these days. Although Amna’s Vogue definitely isn’t even worthy of its good name either.

  41. Mellie says:

    She looks like his mom on that cover, but on the other photos, she looks much younger. I’m sorry, but to me, she’s not model material.

  42. Oh no says:

    The way her hand is placed so the ring can be fully seen… Uhh, what is this, an engagement photo? They’re married already and Vogue should be above such basics.

  43. Beach Dreams says:

    This girl has to be the worst out of all the nepotism models. There is absolutely nothing striking or remarkable. She sticks out like a sore thumb when she’s on the runway.

  44. Amy Tennant says:

    I read the whole article. I came away thinking, oh no, she is way too good for him. She’s a few years younger than he is, but decades older in maturity. He said she tries to be so grown up, while he thinks they should “enjoy their adolescence.” He’s nearly 25! That’s not an adolescent. Although he has some arrested development from being a child star.

    I really have much more respect for her after reading this. In five years, I’m afraid we might be saying she’s Denise Richards to his Charlie Sheen.

  45. Anastasia says:

    In the thumbnail on the main page, you can only see the top of Justin’s head, and because I don’t know who this woman is, I thought it was a woman holding her kid on her lap. When I opened the story, I DIED laughing.

    That picture is…awful.

  46. Yes Doubtful says:

    I get the feeling that she is more of a parental figure to him… He’s yearning for stability and loyalty. I wish them well, but she shouldn’t have rushed into marrying him.

  47. Emily says:

    My thoughts on the cover:
    Hailey looks like an elegant young woman, in a bridal-like dress.
    Justin looks like a topless tween. Could he have tried less?

  48. A says:

    Hailey would never in a billion years have gotten a Vogue cover if she weren’t married or engaged to Justin Bieber haha.

    He looks like he’s 12 years old, and she looks like her age. She’s a pretty enough girl (I like her short-ish hair in that pap photo) but aside from that they’re boring white bread lol.

    Also, I wonder if homegirl has given up her attempts to SWF Selena Gomez?

  49. Silent Star says:

    You guys are always so hard on these two! I’m not a fan of either of them, but I’ve always admired Hayley’s looks and I think she has a very unique beauty — almost Grecian. Justin hasn’t made headlines for any next-level douchery like he used to. But yeah thank God he shaved and got a haircut.

    Maybe I’m totally naive but I think their love is genuine and I think they are good for each other.

  50. Lindy says:

    Gross. I loathe everything about these two: their religious cult, their immaturity, their belief that their relationship is something special. So gross.
