MEANWHILE ON THE COVER OF A MAGAZINE YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD OF … MISCHA BARTON HOLDS SOMEONE ELSE’S NAKED BABY AWKWARDLY ON TWELV (YES, REALLY) MAGAZIN. (NO, NOT REALLY.).

What is she doing? Why is she clutching a naked baby? Why is the magazine's name spelled incorrectly?

Oh gosh. and now ... bucketloads of make up, Plus Photoshop.

Oh wait.

there’s an answer to, at least some of those questions.

The Huffington Post could not contain their curiosity and so asked”Twelv” Magazine to explain themselves: ” Hissa (the Photographer?) chose to have Mischa holding a baby because he has always had a fascination with the Virgin Mary. And in working with Mischa her kind and sweet personality was hard to ignore. So when it came to discussing concepts for the shoot, Hissa felt it would be a way to portray a side of Mischa that has never been seen before. So for the premier of TWELV magazine they both agreed that creating a visual dichotomy between Mishca’s public persona and the famous biblical figure in a high fashion setting would give people the chance to see the actress and designer in a new light.”

Ooookay.

But what I really wanted to know is this: “Why not call your magazine … Twelve?”

With an “e?”

I’d be happy with an answer to that question.

I really would.

    I love the first pic! So many mags have celebs in the same pose: hand on left hip, jut hip out, right leg bent or sexy smirk over the shoulder etc. This cover is striking. But they did put too much make-up on her. And, yeah, I don’t understand why they called the magazine “Twelv” either.

    Never mind the baby or the name. Why is Mischa Barton on a cover? Is she still famous?

    Even after explained to me, still makes no sense.

    If you would have spelled the title along with the article correctly then it would probably have been clarified.

    Tsk tsk, I thought it was so obvious: There is NO ROOM for another e. It would mean resizing and possibly – god forbid – changing the font. Maybe even tweaking other lay-out aspects. Who has the time?
    As for the virgin Mary explanation – I would have thought it’s more Florence Nightingale, in that strong-resemblance-to-a-nurses-outfit.

    Is anyone else canning themselves at Patrick – Sorry Partik – correcting the spelling of Twelv?
