Good grief — we look away for a quick minute and Judy deserts us? Alert reader Diana in LA broke the story from Variety last night. I chose this headline because it tells us who the successors are. Of course, no one person could fill Judy’s (designer) shoes. At least I think they couldn’t. She might not wear shoes, for all we know.
I”m not shocked that Amna got the nod. There were no other real contenders. Lisa needs some… seasoning, and Yamiche left the ship.
Yamiche wore a swell flowery blazer two weeks ago on Washington Week, sez alert reader Blogger’s Mom. She sent me a pic but I lost it. Geez.
But I digress.
Who is this guy, Geoff Bennett?
Not a thrilling dresser, that’s for sure, with his Brooks Bros (does that even still exist? I think a private equity shop ran it into the ground) rep tie and blue-on-blue pocket square. Tasteful but boooorrrrrriiiinnnnnnngggg.
How does Bill Brangham feel about all this? I know he prefers William, but “Bill” sounds better. What about Nick Schifrin? John Yang? They are too classy to vocalize about the upstart coming in and stealing the limelight but I wonder how they feel in the wee small hours of the night.
Let’s take a look at recent Judy outfits from best to worst:
I love Judy in a bolero jacket. Not everyone can pull off screaming neon yellow but somehow Judy does.
Though she looks skeptical, no one can wear white like Judy. This beat out the swell orange number that took bronze because this blogger could never wear white. Not only does the color not suit but the spills!
Love Judy in the militaristic look. Always have. Always will. This is pretty woolly and buttoned-up for late spring, but of course she makes it work.
Oh how we will miss you! Burgundy always works – even when her hair was a bit to the strawberry while she was WFH during the height (we hope) of the pandemic.
Everyone’s allowed an off day and Judy is no exception. The longer-style jacket doesn’t suit her but it’s the color here that washes her out.
Dear Reader, whatever will we do?
We have until after the midterm elections to prepare ourselves, so let’s not waste a minute of our time together.
