Well, the fonts and colors are better, and there is a merciful lack of dumb pandering slang or emojis.

But Cosmo did more interesting work with the photos inside the magazine. You could plug Carrie Underwood in here and be like, “Okay, sure, still makes sense,” which is not something I have ever said about anything Gwen-related before; further, something about the stiff facial pose will only exacerbate people’s concerns that Gwen has been tinkering with her face. This feels a bit too much like Homogenized And Partly Frozen Gwen Stefani With Bonus Fishnets, and I wish for more.
