Anna Wintour Approved Lucky’s Horrible Kerry Washington Cover

Lucky’s latest cover, featuring the normally flawless Kerry Washington, is terrible. This cannot be debated. Just look at it. Somehow Lucky made Washington look awful, which is such an amazing feat that we’re thinking maybe the staffers deserve an award. However, Eva Chen, Lucky’s editor, wants us all to know that Anna Wintour thought the cover was fine.

“Anna as the artistic director was definitely aware of our cover selection and was very supportive,” Chen told WWD. “Anna always provides me with guidance. As editor-in-chief, it comes down to my decision — and Anna agreed.”

Of course Chen has to say that; she can’t throw Wintour under the bus. But we do have one question: How many, and what variety, of hallucinogens had Wintour consumed prior to approving this cover? We have some high school buddies who would pay top dollar for them.
