This morning, Eva Chen, the Editor-in-Chief of Lucky, was on “Good Morning America” to reveal, amongst other things, which fashionable star is on their December cover — and, it’s Kerry Washington! Now, while Washington is more than worthy of being on Lucky‘s cover — she’s a huge star with a fantastic sense of style and appreciation for fashion — WHAT IN THE HOLY HELL DID THEY DO TO HER?

No cats were harmed in the making of this meme, but it does serve as additional evidence in the case for Photoshopping a cat into every picture ever. So much better! [Brides Throwing Cats]
GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE: we can finally fucking give up. You can forget about agonizing juice cleanses, dieting, exercising (I shudder at the thought) … hell, forget about every single obsessive thought you’ve ever had regarding body image. Yes, ALL OF THEM. J Brand is here to save us all, provided we all have somewhere in the neighborhood of $200 to $300 to spare on a fine pair of “Photo Ready” jeans. Quoth Grazia:
It’s an amazing patented technological fabric which basically creates a photoshop’d silhouette, giving the slimmest, smoothest appearance with a unique holding power that is super comfortable and never sags.
That’s right: a “photoshop’d” silhouette. The future is here, and it’s way thinner than you. [The Gloss]
