Blairbrushing: Tony Blair on the cover of Men’s Vogue

Isabelle News 1 Comment

don’t doubt for a minute that we haven’t seen the end of airbrushing
but I was surprised to see Tony Blair on the cover of Men’s Vogue
looking so… smooth. Now they didn’t do a Redbook
on him by any means but he definitely looks a little soft focus. The
picture on the left shows that he actually bears more resemblance to political cartoonist Steve Bell’s depiction of him than the Vogue cover.
Calling him "The man who made Britannia cool" (mmm… change cool for
"a terrorist target" and you’re almost there!) Vogue followed him on
his farewell tour around Africa in May. The photograph itself was shot
by recent Condé Nast signing Norman Jean Roy who is known for his
flattering image-making.
