They got me…but not for the reasons that they were hoping for. This issue is a clear nod to the magazine’s heyday–in the 70’s–and a homage to one of the most iconic covers ever:

Editors of the magazine wanted to re-create the issue because “Marge’s sexy blue beehive immediately made us think of Darine Stern, whose beautiful, voluminous hairdo was front and center on the October 1971 cover.” I always knew that Marge’s hair was a little different 🙂
