Covergirl Ain't what it Used to Be.

[please take this post with a pinch of salt if something in here applies to you]
[I am not trying to single people out, I am simply giving my opinion]

I'm sure that all members from 2007 to 2008 will know what I'm talking about when I say this.
Years ago, Stardoll came up with a cute little addition to our paperdoll heaven called "covergirl", and everybody was in love with the idea! One of those people being me. I thought it was a great way for people with beautiful medolls to get the recognition that they deserved.

Back then, only the girls with the most votes could win covergirl, these days, it seems as though only the girls with the most stardollars can win covergirl. Which in my eyes, is extremely unfair to the girls who work extremely hard on their suite, but have no stardollars.

If you have a couple of thousand just lying around, you'll automatically win covergirl, so long as you promise something in return to those who vote for you, for instance; a raffle, free LE or DKNY etc.

I think that nowadays, the people who win covergirl (sometimes) are undeserving. They just see covergirl as an opportunity to get a shiny trophy and a couple of friend requests, not as an opportunity for their hard work to be noticed. And to those people, I say tsk tsk.

What do you think?


  1. you are right, that is true and not unfair. but what we can to do with this?

  2. I totally agree.
    For example, I'm always broke, haha.
    But I don't think this will ever stop.

  3. I totally agree! I've never won cg and I don't think I ever will cause I don;t want to spend that much money. that's why I like cat walk. Its difficult to advertise for ppl to vote for u on that. I've won second on that before [: it was really great!

  4. I 100% agree with you.
    It's really sad this is what it has come to, but there's not that much we can do about it. That's why I find it pointless to run for covergirl nowadays. It's a waste of money & time that can be spent on something better than a stupid trophy & $25.

  5. I don't think it's ever worked - since the very beginning, you'd have people winning Covergirl who last logged in 6 months ago.
    Personally, I think it's decided completely at random.

  6. Exactly right
    so true
    it's getting to the point
    that's some girls are just doing it for the trophy or greed who really knows...
    In those days cg didn't really needed to pay 3000sd for cg it was more likely a vote this vote that :S

    Cg and stuff have totally gone over board .. In my honest opinion..

    xx TASH

  7. I agree. In 2007/2008 there were covergirls who really deserved to be covergirls. I agree with you.

  8. I totally agree with you and I love that pic :D

  9. That picture.. LOL.
    But I agree, covergirl is really meaningless.
    On the 19 of Feb I won covergirl this year but that was after mailing 4000 people asking them to vote me and broadcasting all day. And it's not worth it.
    You get a badge, and fame for a day. Great, but after that day you're forgotten.
    Now covergirl is only so you can say "I have been covergirl" but really it means you have wasted all day begging for votes, and like me, selling all your hotbuys, LE, old DKNY and everything you've got to make money to broadcast with.

  10. hey guys vote miss_vilarelho coveergal! she deserve it! plzzzz

  11. yes!! hoey you are totally freaken right!!!! omg i feel so weord i was trying to be cg so bad!!!!!!!and i really wat to be covergirl now but now i don't haaved any money but now, this will make me work even harder thanks:p youu guys can vote for me if you'd like but i'm not asking you.....But I will help anyone that needs to do a scenery or whatever
    love ya!!

  12. Completely true... its completely ridiculous . I remember when callie stardoll was covergirl... it was completely pointless. I know i'll never win it cos i can't be bothered spending all that money when i could be buying clothes or makeup.
