    Great shots! But to me, the typical American style should include one looks like Britney Spears. She is the type of characterless blond the America is always crazy about.

    Yeah, this is totally the American Experience what with the deliberate exclusion of minorities and conforming to procrustean standards of desirability. Thank you, Fashion Gone Rogue, once again for unquestioningly lapping up another fetid slosh from the cesspool of mainstream fashion.

    props to Tonne Goodman, the styling is incredible, resulting in something I (finally) find fresh and engaging out of US Vogue (although I would have loved to see a better Gibson Girl…they got the hair right, and I get what they're going for as far as the sportswear goes, it just doesn't do it for me). And, of course, Sasha kills it every time.
