When I get my Elle magazine in the mail each month, the cover is different on the subscription edition than it is on the magazines I see in the store. The covers in the store always feature the subject dressed in a brightly-colored dress with a big smile on her face and is covered in about a hundred headlines. The subscription cover is usually the exact opposite - dark colors, the subject is never smiling, and there's usually a single minimal headline. I will admit that the photography is excellent and the covers are very well designed. However, I received the February issue yesterday, it's strange how similar its cover is to the January issue. I mean, there's something wrong when you almost can't tell the difference between Beyonce and Kate Hudson.
