The girl got her nose done, big deal. I am sure her talking about embracing ones self was probably meant more toward ones inner person. If not, then still, who cares, it's not hurting anyone.

i agree with the hypocrisy aspect of it and undrstand why people would be upset but there is no reason for marie claire to say they are dissapointed with her choice! maybe her choice of words but if she wants to have her nose done then no one should really care.

Personally, as someone with a big 'ol honker of a nose myself, I can see how Ashlee Simpson's actions could have "hurt" me as teenager. I was super self-conscious about it, I hated my nose and thought men would never find me beautiful with my nose. If I were a fan of Ashlee's at that time, seeing someone who I previously admired for embracing her uniqueness completely reverse her attitude would have affected me greatly.

Thank god I a) never liked Ashlee, and b) grew to love my nose!

I think the Ashlee situation is unique. She has been dogged for her looks in the past and has literally grown up in the shadow of Jessica, a woman who for whatever reasons is generally praised for being beautiful and a sex symbol. I can see where that combination would completely ruin ones self image, particularly if you have to lead your life in the public eye where looks are everything.

I'm glad Marie Claire addressed the situatoin though I'm not sure about the response, its a little harsh but it makes a statement.

Its nice to hear that a mass market fashion magazine is aiming to change its image and content. I haven't read an issue of Marie Claire in a long while, I thumbed through the last issue and it was OK but I'm excited for the September issue. That cover is stunning and Maggie is one of my faves. Should be a good read.

The cover with Maggie looks wicked. Marie Claire shouldn't have put Ashlee Simpson on the cover to begin with. She's more of a Seventeen cover girl.

The cover is very avant-garde and very atypical of a magazine like Marie Claire. I could seriously see the pose and makeup on a high fashion magazine with a model, but Maggie really suits it... Hopefully, the inside of this magazine is also promising. The titles appearing on the cover seem a little less superficial...

this thread reminds me of how flat my nose is... as a matter of fact, i'm pinching it right now

Truthfully, i don't care that she got her nose done...what she does to her body is her business and it's getting a little annoying hearing people give her crap for doing that....it's been months since she did it and the media is still making a big deal about it...

that being said, she should know when to open her mouth and when to not....when you're gonna say something that you know will be printed in a magazine and that could potentialy come back to bite you in the a$$, you should be a bit more careful about the things that you preach

I still like her though

This is very interesting. Marie Claire is publically snubbing one of the celebs who can usually do no wrong and who are sooo special. It's not even the first time that she effectively manages to epitomize insincerity and pretention in an unpresedented way. Hopefully, this is her last magazine cover, and I'm glad Marie Claire is telling their readers they'll have nothing of this sort from a B-lister like her.

Also, the Maggie cover looks great. Eye catching to say the least. Very impressive move by this magazine.

I don't care much for how Marie Claire is handling the Ashlee situation. Reading the July article that is in question, I honestly believe that Ashlee was sincere when she said " I want girls to look in the mirror and feel confident". Unfortuantely while delivering that message of Girl Power, she herself was struggling with her view on what she obviously considered a shortcoming. Ehh...Just to say in the article how confident, bold, outspoken, quirky and real (don't even go there...lol) she is and now its like 'Ugh! Ashlee you wench how dare you change something about yourself that you didn't feel confident about.'

I'm not saying err typing that Ashlee shouldn't be held responsible for the things she says because I can see how her actions seem contradictory to her comments. Perhaps Marie Claire is going the Vanity Fair route and trying to stir up controversy? I mean a mention or two from some angry readers is one thing but a writing riot is a bit much. As much as I would hate the controversy angle to be the case, I would prefer that over those who contribute to Marie Claire acting like jilted lovers who put their significant other on a pedestal only to see them fall in their eyes.

Moving On....Maggie looks great on the cover. I'm all for taking chances and giving others outside the "It Girl" realm some shine but I hope that under this new supervision Marie Claire doesn't stray too far from its contents which I felt have made the magazine a good read on an overall basis.

Horrible new cover, Maggie is ugly and they're probably just trying to get new publicity... but Marie Claire is a horrible magazine anyways...
