The Marie Claire Cover

Joanna Coles, the editor of American Marie Claire, was featured in The Independent yesterday and there was interesting tidbit about making Sandra Oh as the cover girl back in 2007:

For better or worse, Coles has also shaken up conventional wisdom about who should grace the covers of American Marie Claire in age when newsstands are heaving with celebrity cleavage and fly-away tresses. Some choices have had praise, others criticism. [...]
Grey's Anatomy star Sandra Oh, one of the first actresses of Asian descent to make the cover, raised both eyebrows and interest. The issue helped lift newsstand sales by 22 per cent.
