Alexa, say goodbye to the intellectual giants of MTVs core audience

And we suppose we’re sad about that, for her, because we love this saucy little broad.

There She Was Just A-Walkin’ Down the Street

January 22nd, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

We ladies all have that one girlfriend who always looks better than we do, no matter how hard we try. You know, the one with the skinnier legs and the prettier hair who looks perennially chic, even when they’re, like, cleaning out the cat litter box? For me, that friend is Mimi, whose clothes I used to borrow all the time when we lived together in college. She has the body of a ballerina (which she once was) and this uncanny ability to make everything she wears look expensive. I’ve tried over the years to figure out what it is exactly that makes her so striking–Is it her lithe arms? Her wide-set eyes? The fact that she’s slightly bow-legged, like Kate Moss?–but after a lot of rumination (and many failed efforts to imitate her), I can only chalk it up to something that can’t be quantified: mystique.

I wasn’t at all surprised, then, when I saw a photograph of her today, taken from behind, on my favorite style blog in the universe, The Sartorialist. She works in fashion and is currently in Milan, making other women weep with envy in the streets:

Immediately I thought of Degas (ballet again, which means in my next life, I’m definitely studying ballet). I also thought she was the girl on the right, because she’s taller than me, so I always think of her as “the tall one,” but she’s actually the one on the left. When I told her this, she wrote in an email, “Well, we can lie and say it’s you and me.”

Sometimes, lies are so much better than the truth.

In Her (Johnny Choo) Shoes

October 27th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

The View‘s Elisabeth Hasselbeck attended rallies over the weekend with Sarah Palin, where all the two women seemed to talk about were clothes and shoes. And Hasselbeck said in a speech introducing Palin that anyone who had a problem with pretty women talking about fashion was “deliberately sexist” and recommended that those critics watch the Sex and the City movie that came out on DVD last month to see how women could do everything men could do backwards and in astronomically-expensive high heels while balancing a third Cosmo in one hand.

Brimming with Girl Power, Hasselbeck went on The View Monday morning and KEPT TALKING about Palin’s clothes to her female co-hosts.

She said:

“(Palin) calls Jimmy Choos, Johnny Choos. This is not a fashionista by any means. She’s not a clotheshorse.”

The “sassy” blonde described Palin’s sartorial sense as quirky and told the other women on The View that her new BFF, like so many other current fashion icons (think Chloe Sevigny and Mary-Kate), favors vintage over designer labels. Curiously, after all that, Hasselbeck said that she wanted the chatter about Palin’s clothes “to end,” and declared that talking about the VP wannabe’s many designer outfits is so last year.*

*Everything in quotations is true. As stupid as this story sounds, there have only been minor embellishments, like the Sex and the City detail, which we’re pretty sure Elisabeth Hasselbeck would never watch. Anything awful starring Mandy Moore is much more her speed.
