I have to end this Cosmo story once and for all! You know we talked about Carey Mulligan’s photos being on multiple magazines covers? Same goes for Gisele Bundchen’s Cosmopolitan Australia, the January 2012 issue.
Aren’t you having a big case of déjà vu? It’s because it’s the same picture as the one published on the cover of Vogue, the famous April 2010 issue, Gisele’s first cover after giving birth, in the mirror. Minus the background. And no, Cosmopolitan is not Conde Nast. It’s Hearst. And yes, editors do lack imagination. And funds. Will Cosmo’s regular buyers notice the picture? I doubt it. Gisele’s selling power is more important than who was first to publish this picture! And… it’s Cosmopolitan after all, people are used to seeing poor covers.
