In case you wanted to buy my outfit from the MORE shoot, here’s the totally reasonable brand and pricing info:
Burberry London cotton silk blend dress, $850; burberry.com. Ralph Lauren Collection suede heels, $595; 212-434-8000.
[Disclaimer: Since someone was confused, I will clarify that the outfit came from More magazine, NOT my own closet ;) ]
I’m spending my afternoon penning my response to Tracy Clark-Flory’s piece in Salon about "the irony of [her] feminist photoshoot". Tracy, who was profiled for the awesome writing she does at Broadsheet, wrote:
"In the two-page photo spread (part of which you can see above), we look like a bunch of aspiring first ladies. We seem a group selected for mild variety and good-girl respectability. It’s a stately tableau that says: The kids are all right. We look like 20-somethings who do tea, not the binge-drinking, casual-sex-having "female chauvinist pigs" that get so much ink these days."
So, the Burberry IS quite a departure from my typical look. But you know, I think there are enough photos of me in underwear floating around on the Internet.
