She's very intriguing... I'd love to know what lurks beneath her veil...

Girl! What's with the hair.
It looks like she's hiding a camera there, to spy in fashion shows...

I'm probably in the minority here, but I kind of can't stand her. It's one thing to have a signature style, but turning oneself into a walking caricature is another thing entirely. Also I think it's a mistake to call her a fashion critic; her writing contains very little criticism per se. Every time I read her blog, I feel like I might as well be flipping through her events calendar while being simultaneously bombarded with a litany of dropped names.

But on the other hand, her commitment to emerging designers is admirable.

^ mmhm. i see what you're saying, but i think she is no more caricature than anyone else who walks around putting a lot of effort into the way they look. as far as fashion people go... i think she could be much worse...maybe i'm wrong but it doesn't even seem like she wears tons of designer clothes, unless she has a full closet full of the same black coat, skirt, shirt and bag. that may be the case ;P

i don't think you are alone with this, droogist. i've heard something similar from lena and i'm sure there are more who find her ridiculous...

somehow i find this caricature appealing. she simply seems to live what she wants to be....

travolta, i meant rodger duncan

how rude is it to roll up to all those fashion shows knowing all the poor people behind you wont be able to see a thing? she should take that thing off her head out of respect, if nothing else.

I'm so un-sophisticated I don't know anything about her (yet) BUT she does look breath-takingly beautiful. Which is not what we are discussing here, though ...
