Cover: May 2004

Context: On May 1, the largest expansion to date of the European Union takes place, extending the Union by ten member-states, including Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Malta and Cyprus.  On May 6, the series finale of “Friends” airs on NBC.  “New York Minute,” the first film to feature the Olsen twins as teenagers, debuts on May 7.  On May 26, Fantasia Barrino wins the third season of American Idol, defeating Diana DeGarmo.

Points of Interest: For the first time since the magazine debuted in 1977, the title “FASHION” is allowed to stand alone on the cover.

What Tyra Would Say: “I can’t even begin to imagine what Sidney went through before she entered this competition.  Still, the memories that haunt her to this day had nothing to do with this week’s photoshoot that features masked serial killers terrorizing the models in an edgy, high-fashion way.  Here’s Sidney’s best shot.”

What Auntie Fashion Says: Every time I read the phrase “all about” (“Spring’s All About Dresses and Skirts“), I want to punch someone in the head.  It’s the laziest trope in journalism.

Grade: B.
