Good looking people who don't live in DC

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Here's the slide show that the Washington Post is using to argue that Washington, DC, isn't "Hollywood for ugly people"—their words, not ours! The thing is, we're not sure the slide show makes for a very convincing argument since, by our count, only three of the nine photos WaPo uses feature people who take up even seasonal residence in DC. Like, seriously, do Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, and the entire Today Show team count for DC? What do you think? [WaPo]
