It’s a pity that Marie Claire is no longer available in print for many reasons, not least the fact that surely this problem would have led to many impulse purchases at the grocery store checkout! The cover is so beautiful and so amazing too; it really is a captivating portrait. If I were Alicia, I’d have this framed.
