T Magazine Bungles Julianne Moore Cover

Julianne Moore is part a of a very small group of famous women who act and dress their age and look great doing it. She usually gives me hope about getting older. So when I saw her on the cover of The New York Times’ spring issue of T magazine, I couldn’t help but feel a twinge of sadness. The usually classy Moore is made up like a poor man’s geisha … Or a newbie starlet who has little choice but to deal with every stupid idea a magazine has just to get the publicity. Take the jump for more evidence of T doing Moore a disservice in the classic beauty department. [Live Journal]
Hey, look! It’s Julianne Moore, our favorite deranged wood nymph!

Can someone please explain every aspect of this image to me? None of it makes sense. From the overdone clothes and makeup to the weird hair, we’ve got a classic hot mess situation on our hands here. Something tells us that confused, searching look on Moore isn’t even a pose.

Finally, an image of Moore looking like the gorgeous broad that she is. We would have liked to see a little more of this and a little less of, well, everything else.
