Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Something

Probably before the Internet, and its pesky quota-filling bloggers, it was a lot easier to borrow magazine images without drawing a lot of attention. No longer! In the past few months it’s been similar images of Barack Obama that have garnered the most attention. However, today we bring you two new additions the “wait, where have I seen that before” category. First, via the folks over at UnBeige comes this month’s Vanity Fair cover of Carla Bruni, which looks a whole lot 2005′s Vanity Fair cover of Paris Hilton (talk about a one-trick pony).

Next, let us draw your attention to the (slightly less obvious) resemblance between a Harper’s 2006 “World Without Oil” cover and the images from this month’s “World Without Oil” feature from GQ (seriously, was it that hard to think up a new title?). What is also interesting to note in this case is that GQ editor Jim Nelson was Harper’s readings editor until 1997, furthermore the author of GQ‘s oil piece, Benjamin Kunkel, has written for Harper’s. Image after the jump.
