At a luncheon for the new issue of CosmoGIRL! the other day, February cover girl America Ferrera (she of Ugly Betty fame) couldn't help but point out some interesting text placement on the new issue:
Cosmo Girl Managing Editor Susan Schultz unveiled the magazine's February cover with Ferrera as its poster girl, declaring it the "unofficial self-esteem issue."This never would've happened when 'Toos was in charge.
Since it coincided with the launch of ABC's "Be Ugly" campaign, pushing both "Betty" and anti-aesthetic beauty worldviews, Ferrara couldn't help but point out the issue's unfortunate placement of the tagline "I was forced to be a prostitute" underneath her Betty headshot.
