A semi-regular assessment of Judy's sartorial choices
OK, bear with me. I just started this blog today. You’re going to have to trust me that Judy looked great today as she reported 58,000 COVID-19 deaths. Not everyone could pull off the green shell under a black cardigan, but you’ll notice she pulled it all together with the black-and-gold dangly earrings. The bauble at the bottom of the earring was like a die from Dungeons and Dragons, which I admit playing with my odd neighbor about 42 years ago.
This is not the best-ever picture of Judy. I promise I will get better ones in the future. Just learning here.
I’m telling you, something happened to make Judy replace “Grant” with “Gettysburg” on the shelf behind her. A tiff with Ron Chernow? I doubt it. I bet she had trouble getting through Grant. I’m with you, Judy. It could have used an editor.
Judy, I will do better by you in the future with my screen shot. I promise.
I just love Judy Woodruff. She is smart, incisive, civil, insightful, poised and, as far as I can tell, a great role model for any aspiring journalist. I tune in most evenings to The PBS Newshour and I have become enamored of her sartorial choices. Never stuffy, never racy, never faddish, but always just right.
When you search “Judy Woodruff” on Google, you get thousands of hits, some about her clothes, but I think this is the first one solely focused on her clothes.
Why her clothes? Why not her journalism? Books should be written about her journalism. This is just for fun. She’s so boss with those cool lady-suits and those dangly earrings. What are they? Rubies? High-class paste?
I should add that I don’t know much about fashion so you won’t see brand names here. She might be wearing Chanel, but she might be wearing something downmarket that only she has the flair to pull off.
In this time of COVID-induced self-quarantine, of elastic waistbands, baseball caps and infrequent showers, it’s a delight to tune in every evening to see Judy. She looks like a damn million bucks, sitting in front of her bookshelf (but what happened to the Grant biography? It was there a day ago) all turned out and spiffy. It just makes me happy.
So here we go…
My name is Megan. I have been watching the PBS Newshour for years. Every time I see Judy Woodruff, I get happy. She is intelligent, incisive, insightful and as far as I can tell, a great role model. I’m 52, so I shouldn’t need role models, but guess what? I still like having them. There isn’t anything else you need to know about me right now.
