Mad About Hats

Marie Claire UK is my new favourite magazine. Not really-really, but:

These are two of my favourite actresses. In January it was Cameron Diaz, none too shabby, and for March, well, Nicole Richie. Which is pretty shabby. However! I don’t think I have ever seen her look so good.

Anyway, back to Billie and Diane and what I want to talk about:

Best Dressed: Stephanie Brown

The week is ending and my Oscar posts are done (Recap if you missed any), but the Academy Awards were not the only awards handed out this week — my co-conspirators and I over at Fantastic Fangirls presented the results of the first annual Fantastic Comic Book Awards aka the Fannies!

Interactive Wednesday: Casting Call for CANTM

It’s Tyra time! Tonight is the premiere of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 14 (14?!). Now, I gotta say a) this show went off the rails ages ago and b) Tyra Banks is the battiest bat on TV. However:

She made up her own fashion superhero (The Amazing Smize! after Tyra’s trademark eye … thing). So, she belongs in my tribe. Plus, America’s Next Top Model premiering means it is time for the premiere of —

CAPTAIN America’s Next Top Model (Cycle 1).

So, tell me, who do you nominate to be a part of Captain America’s Next Top Model? Any female comic book character. Just because it’s Cap’s show, she doesn’t have to be Marvel.

ETA: List so far. Gamora, Carol, Emma, Kitty, Dani, Snow White, Zantana, Diana, Mary Jane, Gwen, Bobbi, Jean, Jesse Quick, Betsy.
