Color me surprised! Not.
I know Blake and her people had been campaigning hard for her to get her Vogue cover. Once she had W I knew it was a lock. And I knew the shoot had happened but I really didn't want to believe it. Now, you know Gossip Girl is the only reason I wake up every morning, but Blake isn't Serena. Nor is she particularly stylish. She made a lot of worst dressed or just plain boring lists thanks to her Golden Globes ensemble.
She does look lovely, of course, and it is one of the better cover photos in recent memory, but I can't help but be mildly annoyed.
