Poor Tina Fey. It seems like every time she lands on a magazine cover, they have a panic attack and try to make us think she’s someone completely different: someone rigid, awkward and usually unrecognizable. This month, InStyle magazine is the publication butchering her: here’s the comedienne jumping out from behind a white pole (into a fan?) that conveniently (and confusingly) slims her whole body.

I don’t get it. Tina Fey is not only righteous, talented and funny, she’s also conventionally good looking. Why not just let her look like herself?

What do you think? Is it horrible like (practically) always? Or is the cover shot maybe… even an improvement?
