Here’s a trend I’d like to see die — sending oh-so-drop-dead-gorgeous celebrities “undercover” as one of the commoners by giving them layers of chub and ugly makeup.

AnnaLynne McCord teamed up with Cosmopolitan, Maybelline, and the USO to collect kisses from troops on Veterans Day in Times Square. All I can say is, that poor sailor’s neck! But it is a great reinterpretation of the famous VJ Day photo. [NYC, 11/11/09] … READ MORE »
