Lea Michele Cosmopolitan cover takes a deep V to new levels



What do we say, fashion flock? Is this tasteless? Vulgar? Should we get out our BeDazzled pitchforks?


Some folks are freaking because Glee sweetie Lea Michele went on the cover of Cosmopolitan wearing, you know, that. It doesn't personally inspire rage in me. She's an adult, and last I checked, Cosmo wasn't sitting open to the orgasm instructional chart on the Thomas the Tank Engine play mat at the local pediatrics office.

I do find Cosmopolitan endearingly void of subtlety, though. On her right breast, the caption says "GET NAKED!" Her left says "FOR HIS THIGHS ONLY!" Right around her stomach, we get "THE FRUIT THAT PREVENTS BLOATING." And beside her bare left ring finger... whabam! "THE MOST DANGEROUS THING A WOMAN CAN SAY YES TO." I'm guessing they're not going to say "ending a sentence with a preposition."

She looks pretty, for sure. But from a fashion standpoint, I think that shirt is a miss. A deep V is wonderful for obvious elongating reasons, and a sophisticated collarbone is always great, but... we get it, you know? Back up a few inches. She may have fared better in something corsety that lifts the girls sunward. I love the skirt, though, and please cover everyone in tiny black bows any day of the week.

What do you think? Discuss, and I'll be right back. I gotta go read how to "FEEL LUSTIER THAN EVER BEFORE."
