I LOVE it! Wow, I think she looks great. Fierce! I think why she gets thought of as a 'boring' or 'bland' actress is because of the films she's done since Almost Famous. I'm a fan of hers, but even I think that AF is easily the best film she's ever done. Back to the magazine though: wow - can't wait to buy it!

For me it's because Nadja's manages to be intense because of what she's bringing to it -- face, look etc. Kate's is mostly due to overt, well-done airbrushing.

Hey here's an idea for the editors at W: instead of spending so much time, money and energy on making up, primping, photoshopping (to death!), & styling a bland-looking mediocre actress for the *September* of all covers to look like a high fashion model, why don't you save yourself the trouble and *gasp* hire a high fashion MODEL for the cover???

i'm not sure about a contract, but US magazines (ie. US Vogue/VanityFair/Cosmo and the like) are nortorious for pandering to the machinations of publicists and managers of "celebrities" but giving them covers to coincide with their hype.

that said, Kate Hudson's ed and cover is better than most celeb covers..
