You Give Black a Bad Name


Jon Bon Jovi and Dorthea Hurley pose for the paparazzi after trading sunglasses.

I know a lot of out-of-towners think that its very chic to wear all black and boots when visiting New York. But this misguided attempt at fitting in is actually backfiring on you– the only people who live in New York and still wear all black are makeup artists and Bloomingdale’s shopgirls. Therefore, by dressing like they’re headed to a super-casual funeral, Jon and Dorthea (I’m guessing she’s his wife) have actually succeeded in posting a big sign over their heads that says “I’m just here for the day. We’re going to have brunch in Times Square, go to Canal Street for some Coach bags and then see a matinee of Mama Mia.”

Sorry, I couldn’t resist the obvious title. My other choice was “Dude Looks Like a Lady,” but even I know that’s an Aerosmith song.
