So the cover here is totally fine — she sort of looks like a throwback Maybelline ad, which is a completely reasonable thing to look like! — but the real star are the inside shots, which Lucy threw up on her Instagram last night as a way to distract and delight us all AND IT WORKED. They had her dress up as musicians of the 80s – why? No idea — and honestly, these snaps are all really great.

She is sincerely pulling off those glasses and should maybe try them in real life.

And, finally, as Prince:

I wish they’d thrown caution to the wind and just made that one that cover, quite frankly. Regardless, I do feel better.
