I caught the announcement on the Today show this morning, and the People person who was on talking about the magazine’s choice was going on and on about how B is so gorgeous and “off the moment.”
Now, I agree – she’s a stunning woman, and very successful and powerful and affable, which only adds to her beauty. But if being off the moment was part of the criteria, shouldn’t Adele have been chosen? It would have been great to see the British sensation be celebrated in this way, and a great message for People to send.
B is by no means a twig, and we certainly don’t see enough black women on the covers of high-profile publications (although we do see Beyoncé plenty), but Adele...now that would have been a different way to go, knowwhatImean?
Anyway, Sofia Vergara also made the coveted list, as did my crush de la saison, Charlize Theron. Ditto Paula Patton and Kate Middleton. I presume some men made the list, but magazine only has the women featured on its site as of my first perusal (I fully expect to see Michael Fassbender up in there, btw).
