Hmm, haven’t we all seen this 1, 2 or 10 times before?

To balance out all the posts about the fabulous things, this post is the first in the category ” Things that make you go hmm….”.

How many naked and pregnant celebrities does the world have to see?! The first one was truly fabulous and stirred up the opinions of the crowd. The cover of a pregnant Demi Moore was a huge succes to Vanity Fair and the photography was taken by the one and only Anne Leibovitz. Actually I’m a little embarrassed to even mention Anne Leibovitz in a post that is not about the usual fabulous things. But let me stress – I am a huge fan and admirer of Leibovitz and none of the non-fabulous writings in this post, is pinned on her! I will make amends in a later post dedicated to Leibovitz.

Anyways, since then we have seen Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Christina Aguilera, Nia Long – just to mention a few! And latest in line to show of her belly is Jessica Simpson. What happened to creativity and innovative new ideas?! It is beginning to resemble the moon landings! The first one was really exiting and had everybody’s attention.  The second time the audience dropped and the third time even less people saw the landing because it was pretty much the same all over again. After a while NASA stopped to broadcast the moon landings because the people wanted to see progress and they expected to see something new. And I have to say, it is time for the magazines to do as NASA – stop showing the same and the same again and again! We cannot take anymore pictures of women with huge bellies! Please find a new way to display the pregnant women if you are that eager to show pregnancies. We beg you!!!

  1. I have to say, I loved the simplicity of Claudia’s cover but I too am over this now. The Demi cover shocked people, and, I think, empowered women to see their pregnant bodies as attractive and natural. However, this continuation of celebrity cover is just ridiculous and counteracts the initial positive done by the campaign.

    Where are the creative minds of these magazines? How the EIC let this get published is beyond me.
