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.

Woah. You are so right. I can't even tell which one is beyonce and which one is kate. Epic fail, Elle

I KNOW! also i forgot to mention, you probably can't see it in this picture but beyonce's outfit appears to be made out of some type of plastic netting, like something one might use to construct a temporary fence around a construction site.

that's really weird...
Elle is a good magazine, though. one of my favs (even though i have to read the lowly newsstand version when it magically appears on the magazine rack at the gym)

katie: it is one of my favorites too. it has a lot of really good articles about random intelligent things.
