Party On With Hyphen This Weekend!

May 5th, 2011 | 2 comments | Posted by Diana

OH MY GAW, Y’ALL! HYPHEN IS COMING DOWN TO LALA!

That’s right. Our favorite Bay Area mag is having a party in LA’s Chinatown on Saturday. And you know when Asians party, they PARTY. Get out your drinking goggles!!

If you live in the lovely City of Angels, come stalk special guests Jane Lui and Beau Sia with us. And if you don’t live here, umm…  just buy a plane ticket and rage with yer peeps.

Also slated to be there: Dawen, Sam Kang, Skim, A’Misa Chiu, Yumi Sukigawa, hot DJs, prizes, and my much-better-looking doppelganger, Hyphen publisher Lisa Lee!

So come one, come all, just come! Oh, and it’s 21+ (Sorry, kids. Borrow your sister’s ID!).

Who’s Your Doppelgänger?

January 29th, 2010 | 13 comments | Posted by Jen

It’s Doppelgänger Week on Facebook, a meme created by one Bob Patel–an Indian Tom Selleck-lookalike who I’m not convinced is real–and unlike so many Facebook memes, this one you might actually want to participate in, probably because it doesn’t involve divulging embarrassing, oversharesky details from your life to so-called “friends” who, alas, really don’t give a shit.

The idea is simple: replace your profile pic with one of your celebrity doppelgänger. And don’t be a party poop and be like, “I don’t have a doppelgänger, bah humbug” or “I’m Asian, I can only be Bruce Lee.” Facebook hasn’t been this much dumb fun since before my your mother joined, trust.

Here are our lookalikes:

Side-Pony Sistas

Chicks of a certain age will recognize my doppelgänger’s Claudia Kishi from The Baby-sitters Club. And yes, I’m aware she isn’t real, but oh how I wish she were, mostly so I could raid her closet and Single Yellow Female her much talked about style.

Then there’s Diana’s doppelgänger, transcending racial boundaries:

Di-e-sha!!!

WEIRD, right?

So who’s your doppelgänger? Tell us in the comments section. Don’t stop there…make it your avatar.

If Tyra Is Michelle Obama, Then…

August 6th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen


In the current issue of Harper’s Bazaar, there’s a full fashion editorial featuring Tyra Banks as Michelle Obama. You know, because they have so much in common. Like, they’re black. They’re both on TV a lot. And they’re both…um…let’s see…Michelle went to Princeton and Harvard Law School, while Tyra went to…Columbus University in the movie Higher Learning…and…uh…

Anyway, the preposterousness aside of, say, Tyra in a Harvard sweatshirt reading in bed while holding a pencil to her chin, arrested by her own profound thoughts, the concept is pretty clever, don’t you think? Let’s take a look at other powerful female political figures and their model doppelgangers:

1. Cindy McCain/Helmut Newton Icon Nadja Auermann


Common traits: Blond, icy-looking, vaguely dominatrix-y

2. Condoleezza Rice/18 Year-Old Rising Star Chanel Iman

Common traits: Chanel is one-quarter Korean and blowing up in the biz, while Condi makes it her business to keep North Korea from blowing up the world; unusual first names that begin with “C”

3. Ruth Bader Ginsburg/Indie Darling Irina Lazareanu

Common traits: Lazareanu makes a living because of her bangs, Ginsburg bangs a gavel for a living

4. Nancy Pelosi/Last of the Supers Christy Turlington

Common traits: High cheekbones, dazzling white smiles, being the best in the business (and, frankly, knowing it)

5. Hillary Clinton/Jessica “Marc Jacobs Named a Bag after Me” Stam

Common traits: Being a bit dough-faced, sad-eyed, and like yesterday’s news
