Blonde Over Blonde

Ugh. Madonna. Why, why, why is Madonna on the cover of New York Magazine's "Design" Issue? (I guess I was one of the lucky ones. NY Mag issued four different covers--Dylan, Joan Crawford, Andy Warhol, and Madge--and distributed them randomly.) If we must have a throwback blonde sexpot on the cover, why not give us someone who is infinitely cooler and more associated with NYC? Like Deborah Harry, for instance? An old photo of D.H. and Chris Stein does appear in the mag, but it's buried on page 83. (Images via NYM)
