André Leon Talley’s Style Muse of the month: Rachel Maddow!
Rachel Maddow: She’s a complete inspiration on so many levels. The most compelling factor is her ability to register her approach to information while at the same time delivering with original humor on her MSNBC program. Maddow has a passion for mixed drinks and cocktails, and with that she explodes into joy like the Pharrell song “Happy.” She is a serious journalist, and just for her coverage of the lack of human rights in Russia to LGBT citizens, she deserves an award. Her style: simple, unadorned, and she confesses she found one her her best jackets at a bargain sale somewhere in Massachusetts. A Rhodes Scholar, she also worked as a landscaper before her ship sailed in. I love when she wears a softly draped cowl-neck shirt under her signature blazers on the set of “The Rachel Maddow Show.”
