Really?

Blake Lively on the December cover of W

Now, I'm as big a Gossip Girl fan as the next fag, but I'm not sure how I feel about this. And by this I mean: a.) the photo, itself, b.) the weird photoshopping, c.) that surly expression, d.) that awkward pose and e.) the choice of Blake Lively over the wonderfully cheekboned Leighton Meester. W has long been one of my favorite fashion pubs, a welcome portfolio-sized alternative to American Vogue's continued pandering to the Us Weekly, but it seems like W is following in its older sister's stilettoed path. First, Kate Hudson "graces" the September cover, eschewing a wonderful spread featuring the chameleonic Tilda Swinton, now this. I'm going to have to start shelving out some serious coin for V or Italian Vogue. Well, at least Vogue Jr. still has some great photo spreads, even if one of them is by Brad Pitt.
