People just made a subtle yet very important change. Back in 1990, the magazine put actress Michelle Pfeiffer on their cover, starting the annual tradition of the “50 Most Beautiful People in the World” issue. Since then, they honor the most “beautiful” person, or people, in the industry. Well, not anymore.

The magazine is taking things in a new direction. Instead of being “most beautiful,” the publication chose to remove “most” and make it “the beautiful issue.” Because beauty isn’t a contest, and it absolutely can’t be measured.

Last year, Julia Roberts graced the cover for the fifth time. This year, Cagle refuses to state who it’ll be — although he gave a strong hint.

We’ll just have to wait until Wednesday, April 18th, when the cover is unveiled. In the meantime, we’re loving this change up. There’s no single way to identify beauty, and we’re happy that People is recognizing that.
