Sorry to digress from the all-important Fashion Week Fall 2009, but I simply had to vent my deep aggravation over the scalpel's best friend (after Joan Rivers), Dolly Parton, "defending" Jessica Simpson for looking beautiful and curvaceous!
On Larry King Live, Ms. Parton said, "I've been fat and I've been skinny, and I'm not about to say anything about somebody else's weight, because I know how hard it is when you gain five or six pounds."
FIVE OR SIX POUNDS? FIVE OR SIX POUNDS? ARE WE LIVING IN A PARALLEL UNIVERSE?
Of course, being under the Bryant Park tents is being in a parallel universe, what with the paramedics standing by with crash carts filled with Ensure, Glucerna and meth to keep the models going. Your faithful correspondent thinks she got a paper cut on her upper arm when brushing past Coco Rocha (watch out for those shoulder blades!), and it stings, which only adds to my mood.
Now, hear this, media morons:
Jessica Simpson looks beautiful. Jessica Simpson looks healthy. Jessica Simpson looks sexy.

Repeat this mantra until you find something more interesting to cover. And yes, I know she is wearing a "skort," but frankly, my dears, I don't give a damn.
As amazingly talented and wonderful as she is, Dolly Parton has not resembled a real human being since the 1980s.
With that I must dash--time to start pushing into the Herve' Leger by Max Azria show.
