Newsweek's 'Princess Diana at 50' cover: Too far or way too far?
But there's got to be a classy, non-creepy way of doing that...
Newsweek's latest cover story, "Diana at 50: If She Were Here Now," hypothesizes how the people's princess would have fit into the 21st century. And while the copy doesn't rock the boat -- she'd totally use Twitter, right? -- the artwork seems offensive on several levels.
Aging Diana with what looks like a lazy Photoshop job, the cover shows her walking alongside would-be daughter-in-law Kate Middleton -- more like a zombie in a hat than the dignified beauty we lost to a car accident. Inside she's rendered less-awkwardly aged, but clutching an iPhone. (Why not?)
The article comes courtesy of Newsweek editor-in-chief and Diana biographer Tina Brown, and we're wondering what exactly she was thinking.
No one wants to be remembered like this.
