Ahh, summer is officially here. Time for picnics, lemonade, and boatloads of body issues brought to you by your weekly warriors. The only question is: Do you want to feel smug and superior (S&S) when reading your glossy, or do you want pics that inspire you to put a plastic surgeon on speed dial?
In the smug and superior “I look better than this” column, Star runs a Stars Without Make-up cover, boasting “28 pages of new photos” of celebs in all their zitty, wrinkly, unflattering-lighted glory. Earth shattering news: older (this being “Hollywood”-older not reality-older) ladies like Felicity Huffman, 45, Julia Roberts, 40, and Kim Cattrall, 51, tend to look, well, older without make-up, while younger starlets like Kelly Clarkson, 26, and Mischa Barton, 22, appear puffy. Another shocker: supermodels like Bar Refaeli, 23 and Kate Moss, 34, look good with or without make-up, with or without clothes. That’s because they’re aliens sent down from a planet populated by the makers of Botox.
