Do we have something to do with Lucky editor Kim France's nightmares? A few times, we have pointed out the severe redundancy in the captions in Lucky. (I mean, really, how many times can you use the word "glamorous" in one issue? Twelve, according to our tallies. It's like they're the Kimora Lee Simmons of Conde Nast!) So in the new March issue, Kim actually acknowledges her staff's "caption dementia" and devotes her entire Editor's Letter describing how she wakes up at 2 A.M. hoping to hit the jackpot with a new word. She adds that the editorial staff suffers to find the right word for its dear readers: "We suffer, we really suffer, so you can know which woven wedge is especially walkable." (Yay, alliteration!) And she's even giving away $1,000 to the reader who can actually do a better job "bringing the freshest language" to the magazine's four-page shoe guide. After the jump, we see if things have really changed over at Lucky in the past four months or if they still sound like our favorite broken record.
Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service.
