I find the picture in very bad taste. Celebrate her life, write the article about what might have been, but leave off the cgi of Diana.

Twisted. Leave the poor woman alone already!

It is creepy and doesn't look real at all. Very poor decision.

So creepy and tacky and disrespectful. Jeez.

06-28-2011, 04:35 AM
Will they ever leave her alone?

The cover will definitely get people to pick it up in the store, so it'll serve its purpose.

It's weird, strange, but I really don't see how the cover is "disrespectful" to Diana.

P.S. The cover is extremely tacky and very desperate. Newsweek not selling well recently?

Please tell me why Newsweek couldn't find someone who could make the eyes a whole lot less creepy. The image as a whole is disturbing -- and inappropriate -- but the eyes are just plain wrong.

And dragging Catherine into it just compounds the error. Nasty.

That's really tacky and just creepy, pairing it with that picture of Kate its like Kate is looking at her in conversation.

I agree barbk, they could have chosen a better picture and made it classy while celebrating her.

i miss diana- kate is no diana and never will be- I just dont 'care' as mcuh about her as I did Diana . I feel like the public wants to like kate as the new diana so they are trying to make it happen..... I really missed her at the wedding- how sad for william not to have his mother there :(

Diana died at age 36. What's the point in showing her at (imaginary) age 50? I find this in extremely poor taste.

06-28-2011, 05:59 AM
OK, I was freaked out by that picture. And then Vash said she died when she was 36. And now I'm freaked out more by that because she always seemed much older than me, but now I'm older than her. :scream:

If it were another less reputable and renowned publication, I wouldn't have batted an eye. But for Newsweek, this is bad.

Everything about the cover screams trashy tabloid. The Photoshop layout is horrendous. It looks like cardboard cutouts. And why give Kate equal space on the cover when it's about Diana? And what bugs me most of all is that the center of the photo isn't either Diana or Kate but rather a random bodyguard!

Way tacky. It looks like a tabloid.

Nice job, Newsweek. Piss off William before he sets foot in the US in a few weeks. Tacky.
