December was a great month for cover star picks. We had a solid mix of models and celebrities — and said celebrities stretched beyond the Kardashians. Unfortunately, when it came to fashion, much was left to be desired. It’s the holiday season, we know, and that naturally entails some sparkle, sequins and bedazzled fringe, but does that mean we need feathered miniskirts and dresses worthy of Dancing with the Stars? Moreover, many of the celebrity shots resulted in awkward glares and weird body positions, which just reinforces the idea that there’s a reason models are models. Lastly, there’s no denying the unfortunate lack of racial diversity this month.
