No other site reviews and critiques news images as well as publishes original photography — all in the name of helping you become a sharper “visual consumer.” Are you bombarded by powerful images from the world of news, culture and social media? Sign up for our “Week in Re-View” and let us help unpack them for you. Other sites read the words. We read the pictures.

Bewitched

My takes:

• Look, you can put me in a midnight blue, witchy black background that I dissolve right into in my pitch black dress and jet black hair, and you see, everything’s fine!

• And you know who she’s riffing off of with this “everyman” shtick? Obama ’08.

• You think you can flatter me, Christine? Well, YES YOU CAN. I haven’t felt this special since TIME honored me back in ’06.

• The men are gonna smile at the spunk, and enjoy the, yes, bewitching intimacy, while women are gonna think: well yeah, who hasn’t done/tried/said some outrageous things before?

• Whatever she paid for those pearls, they’re worth every penny.
