Mar 8th 2010 9:11PM SJP's Chanel dress was the most classic and elegant of the bunch, but she's the wrong body type to wear it. An Audrey Hepburn or someone very tall with dark brown hair would have looked smashing. Here hair looked liked Patty Duke's from Valley of the Dolls (Neely O'Hara!)
Sep 6th 2009 3:15PM Why is it automatically considered racist when you say you don't like Michelle Obama's look? What does race have to do with your own personal standards of what is/is not attractive? I didnt think Barbara Bush was good looking, and goodness knows Eleanor Roosevelt was no looker, and their race played no consideration in that opinion. That being said, Michelle Obama is a truly repulsive creature.
Aug 21st 2009 11:19AM For once we cant accuse her of wearing an expensive wardrobe. Looks like Old Navy or Kmart won her over this time.
Aug 20th 2009 7:08AM It's not that it's somehow "inappropriate" for a First Lady but downright UNATTRACTIVE. May I remind you that this woman is 45, not 25, is VERY hippy, "wide in the beam" and doesn't have the greatest legs. Hillary, Laura etc. acknowledged their middle-age and dressed accordingly. I cringe to imagine what kind of bathing suit she's going to prance around in on Martha's Vineyard. Michelle looks like someone not really very cognizant that she's MIDDLE AGED. If she's going to glory in the title of "fashion icon" than this kind of getup shows she doesn't really GET IT. My opinion: She looks like a McDonald's worker on her day off shopping for a mac and cheese dinner for the tribe.
Aug 18th 2009 4:26PM I cringe every time I see the word "mistress" in print referring to a girlfriend or female lover. The word conjures up images of some consort of the many French kings named Louis or a bleached blonde lounging in her teddy and feather boa waiting for her man to drop by the Park Avenue pad he's paying for. In a lot of these recent cases (Sanford, Ensign, Edwards and of course Clinton) there was no "pay for play", these women aren't prostitutes. So, what do we call Sanford when we describe him in relationship to his Argentine lover? Just a thought!
Jun 16th 2009 9:42PM I see a lot of confusion here between what was clearly illegal conduct (David Vitter and Elliott Spitzer having sex with prostitutes; Larry Craig soliciting sex in a public place) and actions that are immoral (or regrettable or whatever you want to call it) by Ensign, John Edwards etc. However, it certainly seems appropriate for the Senate to censure Ensign (who had sex with an employee after all), just as it did with Phillip Crane and Gerry Studds back in the 1980s for having sex with pages.
Why is there always such outrage over the sexual and moral conduct of public officials? I never assume my two Senators from Maryland are beacons of morality, so they never disappoint. Maybe the French have it right for once. The same goes for sports figures who err or commit crimes and then are said to have "diappointed millions."
Finally, I don't know Sen. Ensign's personal or political views on gay marriage (although his chief of staff is publicly gay), but it may make him think twice when he hears the right wing of his party accuse of gays of wanton immoriality and promiscuity.
May 2nd 2009 11:33PM Did anyone take a look at those big ankles? They look like they belong on a stevedore!
May 2nd 2009 11:27PM Oh Abby!! That's ridiculous! What are you implying? She makes an excellent point about people continuing to personally attack the FLOTUS!
May 2nd 2009 6:26PM It's when you start thinking that $540 is "normal" for a pair of sneakers . . .that's when there's a problem. Ditto for her comment during the campaign that the $500 Bush tax break would only buy you a set of earrings. Barbara Bush can act and talk like a clueless blue-blood because she doesn't know any better. But a woman who incessantly trumpets her working class South Side Chicago roots and then parades around in designer sneakers at a photo op looks like a nouveau riche.
