So I opened my e-mail yesterday and found a message from Bally - shoe-maker and bag-purveyor to the very rich and sorta stylish - wishing me a Happy New Year (aw, thanks, guys!) and informing me that former supermodel and current uber-mom Christy Turlington is now pimpinghawking modeling their wares and would I like to see?
There was a picture attached. It was kind of awesome. And by awesome, I mean baffling:
..."them," presumably, being her Mom, Dad, Nann(ies), or whoever else would have attempted to make Suri Cruise wear something to cover up her pins on a recent outing in chilly Boston. Because I'm 99.7% certain that someone at some stage probably tried to make Suri dress properly for the elements.
Forgive me for quoting Sisqo in the title, but it couldn't be avoided because this video? Is Bad Mom awesome. I even found it funny when I was a young, single, well-rested, with disposable income and a flat and toned tummy... (oh, my hell -- quick, somebody: remind me why I became a parent again?)(RIGHT. The incomparable fulfillment that comes with raising my beloved child.) (Can I have that, AND my flat tummy?)
Anyway, this video may be an oldie, but it's definitely a goodie.
So, the Fug girls were all oh honey no about the wardrobe
choices of Nicole Kidman and Kate Hudson at the American Music Awards, and, really,
they have a point, although the mom in me is more, how did they get so skinny?, and thank god SOMEONE is flatter than I am than ugh, what an ugly dress and wow, Kate Hudson, COVER UP. I mean, really, I see Kate Hudson's boobs and I think thank GOD. My post-baby boobs are so flat that they are almost negative space and I was beginning to despair that if I was ever invited to a major awards show I would be undressable.
