The calendar may say autumn – and the plummeting temperatures agree – but it seems that some famous moms didn’t get the memo.
This week alone, we’ve seen many famous women going out with open coats, jackets and sweaters despite the weather. Granted, in some areas it’s fairly warm yet, but even the celebs who call the East Coast home are venturing into the near-freezing temps without fastening their outerwear.
Of course, it’s all the better to display the smart sweaters, dresses and tunics underneath. Women in the entertainment industry are walking advertisements for the designers who dress them.
There’s another motive as well: In this appearance-obsessed business, these ladies know that puffy jackets and heavy overcoats add pounds. If they dare let themselves be photographed with a zipped-up parka, they’ll be featured in next week’s tabloids with a sensational coverline like: “KATIE PACKS ON THE POUNDS! TURNS TO FOOD AFTER STRESSFUL SPLIT!”
Still, it’s rather amusing to see these mothers trading comfort for stylishness. Isn’t it part of a mom’s job to nag her kids to dress warmly and close their coats?
If they catch pneumonia, don’t come crying to us!
