A couple of months ago, we discussed the hack job which Glamour’s cover designers had done on the beautiful figure of America Ferrera.
Not to belabor the point, but this month’s cover clearly indicates that not enough heads have rolled over there. It’s one thing to make a curvalicious actress look like a Barbie doll; it’s another thing to do so in such an obvious way that we all notice it. Listen Glamour, if you’re going to try to trick us into believing that Ferrera has stick-thin arms and a rib missing from the bottom of her ribcage, at least don’t do it so that we all know what you are doing. If you are going to trick us, then trick us. That’s why we pay your newsstand price, for the fantasy, right?
So what exactly have you done this month to Mariah Carey’s normally-perfectly-normal face?
Francesca took one look at this cover and thought “Aha! Clearly there is a new beauty trend emerging!”
