Time’s annual Time 100 Gala, celebrating the year’s most influential people had a bevy of celebrated folks walking the red carpet. Carrie Underwood and husband Mike Fisher, Susan Sarandon, Ronan Farrow who is SOOOO clearly not Woody’s offspring, Alfonso Cuaron, Katie Couric, Uzo Aduba and supermodel Christy Turlington with husband Ed Burns.
By all accounts these aren’t names to fain a nap over – we are partial to Christy! Total BEAUTY QUEEN.
But still, when the likes of Amy Adams and Pharell Williams garage it, bypassing the step and repeat for a horde of photogs awaiting in the lobby of Jazz at Lincoln Ctr, well, there is a problem – a huge problem.
And as if that weren’t enough, throw on none of the 4 people gracing the issues cover surfacing at the event – Beyonce and Jason Collins who live in NY comes to mind – and, well, it makes you question the whole point of it all…
Sure, it is about more than just mere pop and tinsel town celebrity – it truly is – its about the people, the world over, who do good inspite of great odds & help change the world or their community for the better without the fanfare. We get that…
But still, bikini-clad Beyonce is one of the covers not Ugundan Nun Rosemary Nyirumbe! At least if when you put skanky assed Kim Kardashian on a cover she will make a momentary appearance to cash in on the photo-op.
Other step and repeat notable attendees: Alice Waters, Aliko and Halima Dangote, Barbra Walters, Diane Paulus, Laverne Cox, Mark Kelly sans wife, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Peter Cashmore, politician Rand Paul, Padma Lakshmi and Withelma Ortiz – among others.
An honorable mention goes out to Ann Coulter. She is a Park Ave socialite. Blond. Of means. She has more than she needs and still looks like starvation incarnate.
EAT SOMETHING Ms. Coulter. We know ‘thin is in!’ We get that… But it really won’t hurt you to throw some croutons on that salad and maybe some shrimp or chicken, while you’re at it. Your knees look like they can hardly support the bones North of them… Muscles need protein to sustain them. There are people having to do without for lack of access to food or for political reasons, et al…. none of that applies to you. YOU ARE WASTING AWAY!
