so great

"...Fashion shows are the most serious events in the entire world. Nobody in the audience smiles or talks; the models look like they're on the Bataan death march; and people slowly, lifelessly clap at the end. I've been to political panels, criminal trials, locker rooms of playoff losers, graduate English classes and the Ron Paul convention, and I've never seen people take themselves quite this seriously.

Vogue editor Anna Wintour, whom I vaguely knew as the lady who wears Prada and is remarkably similar to the Devil, has two bodyguards--that's how serious fashion is."

"The best kind of fashion show is called a "presentation." Instead of sitting down and waiting an hour for models to walk, you walk around to different rooms where models lounge around in gowns. It's like a Disney revue--the Country Bear Jamboree, except the bears are women who never eat and the jamboree consists of acting bored."

i never really thought that joel stein was that funny, but this is pretty awesome.
