Air Brushed
This fabulous cover by Vogue is generating buzz because, wait for it, this is shocking, the cover was airbrushed. Really?

Here’s a post on US magazine’s site:

“Tina Fey graces the March cover of Vogue magazine minus one defining characteristic: her facial scar. In Mario Testino’s cover photograph, Fey, 39, appears without the small scar on the lower left side of her face.”

“In a 2008 Vanity Fair interview, Fey’s husband Jeff Richmond explained that a stranger slashed Fey’s face outside her home when she was five years old. The comedienne has declined to discuss the incident with press. “It’s impossible to talk about it without somehow seemingly exploiting it,” she told Vanity Fair.”

THIS ARTICLE from the Huffington Post is interesting too:

A little free PR buzz never hurts newsstand sales.  Look for this to be a big winner at the stands.
