That's why the W photo is so confusing. We understand that it's a high-fashion magazine that often alters images in certain ways to achieve desired effects. Still, there's a way to do that without making someone look like a completely different person.
W profiled Tavi ahead of her Broadway debut. While the accompanying photo is gorgeous, the person in it more closely resembles Michelle Williams. She's also on Broadway right now, so it actually may confuse readers who just look at pictures and don't bother reading the articles.
Again, there's nothing wrong with artistic photo shoots. But, when the subject is as unique and individual as Tavi, why bother using the infinite palate of ideas to make her look like someone else? See the photo in question on W.
