What's your favorite section of the New York Times?

New York Times just released a series of video shorts profiling public personalities who discuss their favorite section of the paper. Cynthia Nixon, Padma Lakshmi, Issac Mizrahi, Kenneth Cole, Bebe Neuwirth, Mehmet Oz are some of the personalities featured. I think it's a really smart ad campaign and probably a good thing to launch amid the financial turmoil the company is going through. Something has got to come and in and save the business! Watch them and select your favorite!

Overexposure

I am getting tired of the mainstream I think. Stars like Beyonce, while clearly talented, are just too exposed. Everywhere you turn, you see them. The cast of Gossip Girls, another case in point (I was disappointed that Blake Lively was on last month's cover of W). Although I love Rihanna, she is another celebrity who is getting to be overexposed ...while beautiful and talented in her own right, her recent charity ad campaign with Gucci, her myriad appearances at award shows and dinners in the W. Village, are getting a bit tiring. Next up for her? Looks like, according to Fashionista, she is going to be featured in a new online video series sponsored by Diet COke called "Style Series". Hmmmm....
