Look, there’s a real person on Vogue! Tina Fey’s March cover makes you realize that it’s okay not to know the names of every couture designer in the world. “I feel like I represent normalcy in some way,” she said in Vogue. “People either represent youth, power, or sexuality. And then there’s me, carrying normalcy… me and Rachael Ray.”
Never mind that Tina’s likeness was over-Photoshopped. Hello, every magazine cover for the past few decades has been airbrushed to death. It’s funny how the world is focusing on Tina’s scar that’s been erased to make her cover look flawless.
The famous editor-in-chief herself was on Tina’s side. “There is nothing ordinary about her brilliance, her perceptiveness, or her beauty,” Anna Wintour said in her editor’s letter. It looks like the Devil Wears Prada-inspired icon has finally opened Vogue’s doors to more “real” women. Either that or they’ve used the Gwyneth Paltrows of the world too many times on the cover.
