As ever, the cover of International Vogue Whatever is generally more eye-catching than American Vogue. Sorry, Anna: YOU KNOW IT’S TRUE. (I’m sure you have your reasons. I am sure covers like these don’t sell in the United States. I’m sure you and your bob feel very constricted by this. But you must admit it is fact.)
Fug File: Fug The Cover
Is it wrong that my first reaction is, “God, Mulder, couldn’t you be bothered to shave for us?!” And then I thought about it: Mulder is, more than likely, spending his time eating sunflower seeds, absentmindedly tossing pencils at the ceiling (one is going to fall out and pierce the tender skin at the top of his ear, one of these days), and watching porn. NO, he could not be bothered to shave. And Scully looks mildly annoyed by it. This is truly business as usual.
PS: THE SMOKING MAN IS BACK? But he got BLOWN UP in the finale! A missile went through HIS FACE. WE SAW HIS SKULL.
PPS: What IS the story with Scully’s hair? That IS most important! FINALLY, EW, YOU TRULY UNDERSTAND ME.
We’ve got some other foreign Cosmo covers in here, too, but really this is all about La Minaj. I can’t really remember what her deal is now; she seemed to be trying to act for a while, and she stopped dressing like a clearance aisle in Toys R Us, but I’ve lost track of what the replacement messaging is. Maybe it’s just “confident.” I can get with that.
Did anyone have Cara in the pool? It occurs to me that casting her in your movie DOES seem like a stroke of marketing genius if you’re interested in getting that movie covered by Vogue.
Oh, Elle. You had me at “RIGGINS IS BACK,” even if isn’t true the way I want it to be.
Oh, man. This selection has some of the best subscribers covers I’ve seen in…a really long time.
