Jackie the Great.

Some days a girl wakes up & looks in her big closet full of clothes, shoes, and bags only to be plagued with the contradictory thought "I have nothing to wear". On days like those, I wish that I could have access to couture collections all over the world (hey - a girl can dream right?) There are a few celebrities that, in my opinion, have the best taste/wardrobe of anyone out there:

Lauren Santo Domingo

Kate Bosworth

Lauren Bush

Anna Dello Russo

Diane Kruger

Viviana Volpicella

Aurora Sansone

Blake Lively

Reese Witherspoon

The only person who, in my opinion, should be on a list all her own is Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. Her style & grace is one that cannot be matched.

I have read books and watched documentaries on her since I was 12. One of my favorite movies is Jackie, Ethel, & Joan : The Women of Camelot. (i know - im a pretty big dork) When I recently found out that the History Channel was creating an 8 episode mini-series titled "The Kennedys", I was so excited! I was imagining who would play the infamous Jackie O. Who could they find to match the flawless performance of Jill Hennessy in The Women of Camelot?

When I found out that Katie Holmes had been cast to play Jackie O I was horrified. To say that I was disappointed is an understatement. I might be singing a different tune when this mini-series debuts in 2011, but there is nothing in me that sees her in this role. Also - Greg Kinnear will be portraying JFK, also a choice that I am very skeptical of.

I am looking forward to the fact that the History Channel is putting this together because they have assembled a group of historians to develop it so that it is as accurate as possible. There is already buzz of Emmy nominations. I guess I will have to wait and see how the chosen fair in the portayl of one of America's most infamous families.

i dont like YouTube.

I don't like YouTube.

There, I said it.

I just don't enjoy sitting and watching stupid video after stupid video for hours on end. Maybe it has to do something with the fact that my brother, my boyfriend, & my guy friends could spend an entire day watching YouTube videos. I just dont ever think the videos are that funny. However - there are a few videos that I have seen recently (thanks to my brother) that I just can't get enough of. Maybe i am starting to actually like YouTube just a little bit.

So here are my 3 favorite YouTube videos of the moment:
