The profile of Reese Witherspoon in Vogue is not really about her fashion life, but more about her as a 34-year-old mom with kids who is embarking on a new marriage and a life full of excitement, promise, and that signature Vogue perfection. But there is this tiny bit that is getting some special attention:
At one point we were talking about fashion, and I said, “People who love fashion often . . .”
“ . . . Lack perspective?” she said with a comically judgmental look on her face.
The remark seems to have bothered a few commenters on the blog Fashin. She was probably just trying to be cute, but to invoke the oft-invoked comparison: Why should people who like fashion have to defend it all the time? We find sports hellishly boring and pointless, but so what? Do people who like football have to go around defending that all the time?
