The Mediocre

The fiery flames

Something inherently cheesy about this cover, perhaps the fiery flames? But Karen Elson is always a respectable cover model.

Megan Fox

Allure manages to make Jessica Biel looks soft for once, too bad she douchily complains her good looks prevent her from getting roles. It really is a problem, she says. I have to be blunt.

Allure manages to make Jessica Biel looks soft for once, too bad she douchily complains her 'good looks' prevent her from getting good roles. "It really is a problem," she says. "I have to be blunt." Bluntly mediocre.

The Bad

Ginnifer Goodwin doesnt seem to fit Steven Kleins dark vision at all! And she looks uncomfortably

Ginnifer Goodwin doesn't seem to fit Steven Klein's dark vision at all on W! And she looks dang uncomfortable, so uncomfortable that I actually feel bad for her.

  1. peek-a-boo

    Karen Elson’s cover for W looks like a poster for a Bond movie.Rather odd.
    Cameron Diaz’s Vogue cover is tacky and lacks imagination.The layout team probably did it in 5 mins.
    Call me bonkers but the Vanity Fair cover works for me as I detect a tongue-in-cheek appraoch to its handling of Jessica as a wanabe starlette.Purists might disagree of course.
    Oh and I’d like a Freaky Friday accident with Megan Fox.Please!
