      I agree. Not a good cover. No cohesion. Everyone looks disjointed.

      You think it is by dresses or many events featured??? What have they contributed to their communities? Not all about smiling to the bank that matters…..these featured ones would have left a mark in their respective industries before they would have been featured. Do you know the criteria factor?? So don’t be biased or myopic in your opinions!!
