Funny Face

Watching 'Date Night' last night rekindled my love for Tina Fey and me thinking about her fashion, which too be honest I don't know much about. I've heard her come under fire for wearing a lot black in a similar classical shape but I checked it out for myself and found lately she's been experimenting a little bit.

A short section of her new book ''Bossypants" reads:
"A wise friend once told me, ‘Don’t wear what fashion designers tell you to wear. Wear what they wear.’ His point being that most designers, no matter what they throw onto the runway, favour simple, flattering pieces for themselves. Anyone who has never met me can tell you that fashion has always been very very very very very very very important to me.
For example, I once told my cousin that my dream would be ‘if the whole store Express was my closet!’ How prescient, because now, of course, I wear nothing but Express.’ As well as not taking advice from designers, the 40-year-old funnywoman also joked she found her own unique look when she was just 19.
She said: ‘It can’t be said enough. Don’t concern yourself with fashion; stick to simple pieces that flatter your body type . By 19, I had found my look. Oversize T-shirts, bike shorts, and wrestling shoes. To prevent the silhouette from being too baggy, I would clinch it at the waist with my fanny pack. I was pretty sure I would wear this look forever. The shirts allowed me express myself with cool sayings like ‘There’s No Crying in Baseball’ and ‘Universitat Heidelberg,’ the bike shorts showed off my muscular legs, and the bum bag held all my trolley tokens. I was nailing it on a daily basis. Find something like this for yourself as soon as possible."

From the top; at theNineteenth Annual Bunny Hop hosted by Society of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, in Salvatore Ferragamo at the 2010 SAG Awards in January, making her pregnancy look good in London March 2011 and a casual nautical look.

  At the end of the day my view is that she a brilliant writer who has bought many a smile to all our faces in one way or another and who can really fault the woman who gave us "Mean Girls"?
