News Bites: Hostessing New Hot Career for Japanese Women…Robin Givhan on Barack’s Jeans.. Grace Jones Influence on Rih Rih and Lady Gaga

New York Times

When times are hard, people start to make exceptions.  Traditionally hostessing was looked down upon by the Japanese, but now that the economy is down, people seem open to it more now than ever before.  Young girls can get paid from $100K to $300K for being young cute and filiratious.  Not bad, huh?  [New York Times]

Now that everyone has given their two cents about President Obama’s jeans when he threw the first pitch at the All Star Game a few weeks ago–now it’s Robin Givhan’s turn.  She gives a full analysis on the whole thing.  Fascinating!   [Washington Post]

She was fierce and truly one of a kind.  Now we’re starting to see her influence on everyone from Rihanna and Lady Gaga to Beyonce.  That’s right, we’re talking about Grace Jones.  []
