The Tale of Two Ladies and Time Magazine’s Cover



Bless her heart, Sonia was so heavily air-brushed and photoshopped (is that her high school yearbook photo?) Time Inc. gave the credit as an “illustration by”, and a spunky hopechangey headline. I have the hardcopy in my hands, and it’s definitely meant to look like a, gasp, real photo. Time (hearts) Sonia, you’ betcha.

Whereas, Sarah’s given the opportunity to show her pores and laughlines in a still lovely mug shot sort of way. Headline screams she needs to be educated, doncha’know.

Don’t get me started on Newsweek…..sigh.
