We couldn't contain our perverse excitement when we read about a new makeover website called Taaz: Basically, you upload a photo and choose from different looks to try out...without ever having to enter a salon, medispa or plastic surgeon's office. But why would we want to make-over ourselves when we can make-over the very people who shill the promise of empowerment through aesthetics: the top three tastemakers in American women's fashion magazines, Vogue's Anna Wintour, ELLE's Robbie Myers, and Harper's Bazaar's Glenda Bailey? We wouldn't. After the jump, see what happens when we try (try!) to have Anna emulate French Vogue frenemy Carine Roitfeld, Robbie channel recent ELLE covergirl Victoria Beckham and Glenda pose as Angelina Jolie.
Anna Wintour We are so tired of Anna WIntour's damn bob and think she needsto learn a few lessons from Carine Roiteld about the perks of smudgey, grungey French chic. And voila! Tousled long red locks and bright red lips do just that. Anna Before:
Robbie Myers Robbie, like Anna, also sports a trademark 'do: Long wispy bangs, hair pulled into a loose chignon. But unlike Anna's style, we think Robbie's really suits her.

(In her defense, she's stubborn) So we tried vampy old-school glamour, the opposite of Glenda's new look, with long Angelina-esque locks. Hmm, on second thought, we think her Simpsons makeover was a helluva lot better. Glenda Before:
