Former New York Times restaurant critic Ruth Reichl has broken the mold yet again as Cherry Bombe’s first brunette cover girl.* Previous volumes of the food-meets-fashion, by-women-for-women glossy sport young, beautiful, blonde, cherry-lipped supermodel Karlie Kloss and young, beautiful, blonde, cherry-lipped BabyCakes NYC founder Erin McKenna on the cover.
Reichl’s cover photo is fresh, summery, includes the requisite cherry accent, and features her in an age-appropriate lip color. Way to smash barriers, homegirl.
The third issue of the biannual magazine is “Girl Crush”-themed, and you can pick it up on fancy newsstands starting this week.
*Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Reichl was the only lady restaurant critic at the New York Times; awesome lady Mimi Sheraton was a restaurant critic at the NYT for eight years. We apologize for the mistake.
