Susan Boyle, a style queen?

Posted By on Tue, Apr 28, 2009 at 11:31 AM

The LA Times' fashion critic Booth Moore muses on Susan Boyle and the era of ordinary chic.

Here's an excerpt:

Maybe the collective embrace of Boyle is a sign that we are at last tiring of faux-reality and unattainable perfection, of the "happy couple" Heidi and Spencer, the airbrushed Kim Kardashian and the rest of Hollywood's incredibly shrinking celebrities. In this age of engineered attractiveness anyone can be beautiful, but oh, to be ordinary!

What do you think? Is Susan Boyle a style hero?

Well, what do you think?
