My main pet peeve: There is something so repellently antiquated about the concept of “The One Line That’ll Make Him Commit.”
Like, screw MAKING someone commit. This isn’t Passions. It’s disappointing to see Cosmo, ostensibly a progressive magazine for progressive ladies — or at least one that fancies itself that — pushing such a passe idea. If the person you’re with doesn’t want to commit, then that person is a fool, because you are great, and why would you want to yoke yourself to a fool anyway? The careless implications of that line irritate me enough that I may need to open this up on the newsstand to read about shutting down my stress.
The rest of this is so-so as well. That “No Side-Hustle Required” line about cash flow gave me a moment of pause because somehow, being right next to her cleavage, I caught a nudge-nudge, wink-wink, streetcorner implication to the word “hustle” that I do not think was intended. Miranda has a great bod, though, and her cleavage does look great. The bracelets and rings and necklace here are cute enough to salvage an unimaginative dress. It’s a very quiet cover that seems to be muting her natural verve a little, but it’s also not doing her wrong. She IS very fixated lately on smiling through tightly closed lips, though, in a way that makes look never truly happy. Maybe someone gave her a Jessica Simpson complex and she’s struggling to overcome it. I’d certainly prefer that to her actually NOT being truly happy.
