We here at BULLETT have had some experience choosing celebrity magazine covers. The process is rarely simple. Every once in a while, there’s a no-brainer choice, an image so striking its newsstand potency can’t be denied. But in general, you’re left with several worthy options, and making such a permanent and visible choice can be torturous, filled with second-guessing and back and forths between coworkers that get you nowhere. Usually though, we feel pretty confident with our final choice.
Having said all that, what in blazing hell was going on over at the Lucky magazine office when they were deliberating over which photo of American Sweetheart Kerry Washington to put on their Dec/Jan cover? Seriously. I want to know. Can someone at Lucky magazine please contact me and tell me how Kerry Washington, one of the most photogenic actresses in Hollywood, ended up looking like a mega-villain who just killed the hero and took over the world? Damn.
