With the news that Barbara Walters is retiring in 2014 after more than 50 years of must-see interviews, spanning the Shah of Iran to Pippa Middleton and One Direction, we couldn’t not show you this 1986 episode of The Barbara Walters Special.
Kim Kardashian and Betty White have very distinctive and very different personal styles. The former prefers curve-hugging frocks while the latter opts for loose and casual wares. Of course, this may have something to do with their nearly 60-year age difference, but on last night’s episode of White’s Off Their Rockers, the pregnant reality star got a makeover from the former pin-up star, and the result is hilarious.
There are a lot of adjectives we ascribe to Betty White. Actress, comedian, all around superstar, fashion icon. Pinup? Not so much. Yet lo and behold, there are naked pictures of her vamping on the Internet!
Back in July, we told you that Betty White had partnered with California-based clothing company Jerry Leigh to release a line of t-shirts and hoodies emblazoned with White’s likeness. And both Jerry Leigh and White know there is nothing more valuable than the internet’s all-encompassing love of everything Betty White, which is why they filmed this hilarious “behind-the-scenes” look at White’s design process. In case you were wondering, she has a tendency to make out with the fit models and the seamstresses think she’s “the devil.”
Because we know there’s no such thing as red carpet overkill, we thought we’d bring you one more wrap-up, this time featuring ten looks from Sunday night’s 62nd Annual Emmy Awards that deserve a Styleite-approved honorable mention. Remember, just because it wasn’t the best or the worst, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be seen.
In an age in which even the least appealing pseudo celebrities have clothing lines, it was only a matter of time before true Hollywood original and mistress of comedic timing Betty White had a collection of her own.
Last night all our comedic dreams came true and Betty White hosted Saturday Night Live. While our friends over at Mediaite have the scoop on the skits, we have the scoop on the style — and the first thing we said when we hit play on our DVR this morning — because who actually watches SNL on time and/or with commercials? — was, “OMG. Look at her awesome and oh-so-sparkly outfit!” So, well, look at her awesome and oh-so-sparkly outfit!
Sure they dine before sunset, can’t see over the steering wheel, and often smell like a mixture of moth balls and rose petals. But with the recent surge in popularity of all things Betty White, it seems old might just be the new young, at least where fashion is concerned.
