That's Ellen Pompeo on the cover of the October Allure. Really, I swear.
Though the Grey's Anatomy star is a tad unrecognizable in this photo, I'm not about to assume she's been Photoshopped to death. I think it's just that we're used to seeing our Meredith all scrubbed out, looking like she's had no sleep, and/or like she's been crying for weeks.
See what a little rest, a blowout, and a good makeup artist can do? Voila! A cover girl.
