Sienna Miller is in the new shitty-looking GI Joe movie, so naturally she's on the July cover of Vogue. Honestly? The fact that Sienna's on the cover (again) — and the story inside — is why Vogue is so nauseating.
Writer Jonathan Van Meter calls Sienna "tiny, blonde, blue-eyed," and "just about as fetching as a girl can be." Duh. That is why she is on the cover. Models rarely get covers; actresses do. Are there better-known actresses? Are there better actresses? Yes, yes. Sienna has never been nominated for a Golden Globe or an Oscar — unlike, say, Viola Davis or Taraji P. Henson. But for Vogue, the more model-esque (white! conventionally pretty! hopefully blonde!) the actress, the better. (Paging Vogue fave Kate Bosworth!) And we all know that Vogue's Anna Wintour loves skinny women, especially Brits: Why else do you think Keira Knightley's had a cover every year since 2005? Being blonde, thin and British, Sienna is exactly the kind of woman Vogue thinks its readers care about... No matter that GI Joe is not exactly a Vogue-friendly project.
