There's just something about shaving cream that can turn a beautiful woman into a transvestite instantly.

They still print Esquire? Who knew?

Piper said...

Of course. I get it every month. Still a great publication.

Fletch said...

Same here. Where else can I get my Klosterman fix? (the fact that they still put women on the cover and inside, unlike some other "men's" magazine - coughDetailscough) - doesn't hurt, either). I love Esquire.

I get the transvestite reference, but where's the beautiful woman?

Steve,

I'm a simple man. I never watched whatever that show Jessica Simpson was in so I don't know her to be a complete idiot. But to me she's beautiful. And maybe, just maybe it's the breasts.

I'm w/ anon, never saw Jessica Simpson as all that hot.

It is a shame she has to start shaving at such a young age. Guess that's price to pay for long term Proactive use!

The original Verna Lisi shot for Esquire was sexy.

The recent Jessica Simpson shot is just disturbing.

(and from a photography and layout standpoint, the original is much, much better)

More disturbing is the trend to recreate famous photographs of beautiful and iconic actresses by using beat down, hackneyed "stars".

Where did originality and creativity go in this country?

I blame David Hasselhoff and Red Bull.

Fletch said...

I won't speak to the trend in general, but c'mon, Esquire is celebrating their 75th anniversary. I think they have free reign to do whatever the hell they want with their old covers.

Ted Simmons said...

And if free reign is to suck them up with the likes of Ms. Simpson, then so be it I suppose.

There's homage and there is sacrilege. Large, bountiful breasts aside, this, to me, leans to the latter.

Piper said...

I will say that Jessica Simpson is no Verna Lisi and it does speak to the state of things in entertainment.

This is the mag cover design equivalent to movie remakes. Yawn inducing at best, and scary bad at it's worst. This would go under category B.

How to choose a suitable target in cable and the cabal online alz? You should compensate him by giving him some cabal alz. Normal monsters; you have to lure a handful of monsters with cabal gold so that switching between them can be easier. There are many benefits to guild in cabal money. When you buy cabal alz, it is not still deal high amounts of damage.
