"Blairbrushed": Tony Blair on the cover of Men's Vogue
I 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... questionable!) 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.
