And About That Gown...

Friday, January 23, 2009

While I can definitely understand where The Black Artists Association is coming from - because it was a great opportunity to show a black designer's work - versus (or maybe rather in addition too) someone like Jason Wu, who pretty much everyone knows now - I gotta be honest that when I heard about "the gown" and that it was from a "Wu", I just thought that was pretty cool news - because it was an Asian face in the spotlight.

At the same time I can't help but think one specific thought:

In some ways you couldn't pay me enough to be the President or the First Lady because think about all of us that they have to try and satisfy on multiple levels.

I can barely satisfy myself.
