Taylor Swift's People 40th Anniversary issue cover is actually a replica of Mia Farrow's '74 cover. See the resemblance? Look at the wide, blue eyes, porcelain skin, and general pearl caressing. The original version included such intellectual delights as "Gloria Vanderbilt, A fourth marriage that really works" and "Stephen Burrows, Fashion king of the sexy cling," while the present day cover mostly focuses on Taylor not dating.
