W Mag Lures Readers With Doctored Pap Shots

Candid Starlets Grace Cover -- but Not the Inside -- of November's W Magazine

By Published on .

Style blog Fashionista argues in a recent post whether the November "art issue" of W magazine is really a courier of false advertising.

The Conde Nast staple, which traditionally poses models or actresses on its oversized cover with an accompanying profile hidden deep inside, hits newsstands this month with nine eight celebrity covers doctored by photographer Richard Prince.

But don't expect to find the latest dirt on Britney, Lindsay, Katie, Jessica, Angelina, Julia, Jennifer, Cameron or Nicole here. Not only has Mr. Prince layered their "autographs" over paparazzi shots of the starlets -- surprisingly unsettling ones at that -- he's crafted their ambiguous one-liners.

While Cameron Diaz promises to "Love you long time" and Jennifer Aniston begs "Let's not and say we did," it's Katie Holmes' memo that got our last laugh:

To Richard
Blinded by science.
Katie Holmes
