Michelle Obama Got Bangs, Karlie Kloss Probably Got Jealous
All the blogs are talking about The Karlie, which is what we now call a bob haircut with bangs since model Karlie Kloss adopted it on her perfect noggin. This is the first haircut I’ve heard of being named after a human since The Rachel, as far as I remember. (I’m still kind of bitter that parting one’s hair down the middle separating two perfectly-formed arches of hair was called The Butt-Cut rather than The Tyler since I rocked that shit for about seven years too long, but whatever.) The weird thing about the Karlie is that I’ve been seeing it on a handful of my friends for the last few years, so I’ll go ahead and call it The Christina or The Lorenna or maybe The Lindsay. Or, hell, the Michelle, since Michelle Obama is wearing the hell out of some bangs right now.
As Jamie Peck at The Gloss writes, "Some people think Michelle Obama got ‘The Karlie,’ but I think that’s silly, because if anyone is allowed to get a standard bob with bangs and re-name it after herself, it is the Queen of America." I like that. Can we call it The Queen? Can we just call Michelle Obama The Queen? It looks like I’ve got a lot of petitions to submit to the White House this weekend.
