Michelle Kosinski Has Been Wearing the Same Pants for Almost Two Weeks

NBC News foreign correspondent Michelle Kosinski is a veteran of covering stories abroad. From the London Riots to the Arab Spring, she is always prepared for whatever comes her way.

Now on day 12 of her coverage of the Oscar Pistorious murder trial, Kosinski writes on the “Today” blog with some grizzly behind the scenes details… with regard to her pants. It seems that she only has one pair, and they have been getting plenty of use.

I was able to somehow persuade a hair salon over the phone to deliver my favorite shampoo and conditioner to my hotel, which was a nice comfort when I inevitably started to run out of products as well, but there would be no doing that with clothing.

Thus, my 11-day trouser run. The longest ever. Thank goodness.

As she notes, when you are on-camera, it doesn’t particularly matter what you are wearing below the waist.
