Are you shocked to find out that OK rmagazine's Feb. 10 cover image was a fake? The cover featured Victoria Beckham and singer Cheryl Cole, who I take it were maybe having a feud, standing next to each other The magazine admits that the cover was made from separate photos, and that the two celebs were never really standing together. I could have told you that just from looking at the crappy digital stitching job.
A more serious misjudgment, to my thinking, is that the magazine also changed the color of Beckham's dress, from red to black.
Zillions of women look to see what Beckham, a fashion icon, is wearing. It's her one real claim to cultural legitimacy. Changing the color of her dress is like changing the words of one of Barack Obama's speeches.--David Schonauer
