This is a good picture. Her skin looks luminous, but not ridiculously tan (pale people as a whole have succumbed to the false idea that they MUST be tan in the summer, and that during the winter, when their tans fade, they look like ghosts. Pish posh.), and the feather earring gives me fond memories of Prince circa 1987. Good deal, good deal. THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE COVER. THE PICTURE AND SUBSEQUENT EDITING OF THE ACTUAL COVER PICTURE IS A DISGRACE.
I love this shot. It's playful and youthful, but the 17 stylists/makeup artists didn't attempt to make her look like a 14-year old experimenting with fashion for the very first time in her life. Applause is due.
"When the elevator tries to break you down, go crazy." The lipstick actually compliments the shirt (which is more than I can say for the picture above this one, cough cough) and the styling is yet again understated. The fact that 17 had 2 great pictures of the person they were featuring is truly remarkable. Next time, will they shoot for 3? Let's not be unrealistic.
So it turns out that she's cute. And she has pretty hair. I finally admit it, happy now?
Don't get used to this sort of thing. I'm not wrong often.
