DVF Says Hillary is Micro, Macro

DVF.jpg

Diane von Furstenberg’s interview at the HuffPost is a little masterpiece of its kind. What kind is that, you ask? The no strain, no stretch, no thought involved kind.

DVF tells Amanda Christine Miller why she supports Hillary Clinton:

She is intelligent, diligent, micro and macro, and she truly cares.

Begging the question, cares about what, precisely?

I was born in Europe. We have many women presidents or prime ministers.

And that’s pre-EU, too!

Furstenberg is also part of the What’s My Logo series, which is still banal. Her wrap dress is discussed endlessly, with no mention of the lawsuit she filed against Forever 21. Instead we get this:

So I do facials, but that’s it. So that, in a sense, is something signature about me, because very few women do not use Botox.

Where’s My Logo?/ Slash as Klepto

HuffPost blogger Amanda Christine Miller (why do people use all three rather ordinary names?) has a day job as Vice President at Nike Communications, that should keep her a little busier. She’s got a “bimonthly” (but as one commenter points out, she means “biweekly) series annoying the famous, What’s My Logo?.

But, she’s not asking about logos, but rather about signature garments.

First she asked Christiane Amanpour where she got those groovy safari jackets, as if the CNN reporter was the first to wear them on camera.

Now, she’s asking Slash where the top hat came from, because Tom Petty, Janis Joplin and Stevie Nicks are unknown to her. Turns out he stole it, the scamp. That’s not all he stole, trust us.

(Note to Huff Post–not every idea is a good one.)
