Drew Barrymore on Vogue: Waxen, brow-lifted, dead-eyed. Drew Barrymore in real life: Fresh-faced and sparkling! (Also: A note to Vogue retouchers: When you turn your neck, the skin folds. These are not wrinkles that need to be airbrushed away! It's just the way the body works.)

Blake Lively, in a non-airbrushed photo, is a sunny young gal with a nose which ever-so-slightly widens at the tip. On Vogue, Blake Lively is an older woman with a button nose. Okay, maybe not ugly. But not Blake.

what exactly has jessica biel done to deserve the vogue cover? she's not the biggest name in her next movie or in any movie for that matter. at least sienna had the fashion thing. i guess what i'm trying to ask is...WHY IS jessica biel?

and what anna and grace did to my girl carey is straight criminal.
