Recycled Magazine Covers

Cosmopolitan Uses 5 Year Old Britney Pics

— November 6, 2008 — Pop Culture
A smoking hot and flawless-looking Britney Spears is featured on the cover of the December 2008 issue of Australian Cosmopolitan. The problem with that magazine cover is that the picture was part of an Esquire magazine spread from five years ago. 

The cover in question shows a very sexy, albeit heavily airbrushed, Britney in a short, body-hugging and strapless black dress with voluminous and shiny blond hair and striking a femme fatale pose.

If you take a look at the second image in the gallery, you will see the original Esquire Magazine photo. The subsequent photos in the gallery are also part of that Esquire spread.

Bitten & Bound points out that this is not the first time this has happened with Spears. OK magazine’s April 2008 cover used a 2003 Glamour photo shoot of Britney for their cover feature.
