Vogue is killing me here…

18 Mar

I LOVE adele. I think this beaming brit has the voice of an angel, and I was ecstatic when she won a Grammy. With her new successes come things like gracing magazine covers. Vogue thought to take advantage of this as well, and had Annie Leibovitz shoot Adele for their annual shape issue. Here was the result:

this is what Adele looks like on a regular basis:

Vogue has a history of ruining people with their covers (see Jennifer Hudson), so this comes as no surprise to me. But if you take a look at the Vogue shot and compare it against regular Adele, one only vaguely compares to the other. Being buxom, I’m very disappointed. Vogue  could have done this woman at least a little bit better. Sure the photo looks great, but it doesn’t look like Adele. It’s very discouraging that in 2009, women who aren’t wearing a size 0 aren’t accepted in magazines like Vogue. They need to perk up and pay attention to what’s going on around them.
