Okay, okay, in a recent post, I made it very clear that my opinion of women’s fashion magazines (hell, men’s fashion magazines, too) is in the gutter due to the unrealistic, downright dangerous and insulting, cookie-cutter images shoved down our throats from their glossy pages.
But I must confess, today I picked up the December issue of Marie Claire for the sole reason that Jennifer Connelly is on the cover. I haven’t even read the article about her yet, so I can’t say one way or another how that is, but the photos are interesting. I have always found actresses’ and models’ poses to be very awkward and unnatural, but I love the black-and-white photos and her dark, dramatic eye make-up. It borders on the black gunk that football players smear under their eyes, but hey, it looks good in photos.
