Fashion magazine covers. You can't avoid them. You see them at the supermarket and drugstore checkouts: the placement is called "point of purchase."
Here are my selections as the worst magazine covers of recent months:
Victoria Beckham on the cover of the October 2009 issue of Elle.
From Red Carpet Fashion Awards.
Victoria Beckham in Hussein Chalayan for the October 2009 issue of Elle. It looks like she has Mickey Mouse ears on her boobs!
Elle didn't post this picture on its cover shoot story: wonder why?
Scarlett Johannson on the cover of the November 2009 issue of Glamour
Scarlett Johannson is beautiful, and her new red hair suits her. I like her red hair better than the platinum blonde that she wears in the ads for Dolce & Gabbana Cosmetics.
So what's wrong with this cover? It's more suitable for the cover of Playboy, as Scarlett looks like she's pulling down her tee to cover her nether regions (for all I know, she might be wearing a thong underneath). Playboy covers are often hidden from view, but anyone can see the Glamour cover as they go through checkout!
