She'd Be An Absolutely Fabulous First Lady


Why do we like Teresa Heinz Kerry so much?

We just realized, perhaps it's because she's channeling our favorite British, Veuve-loving, Harvey Nicks-addicted PR priestess Edina Monsoon. She's got the accent, she speaks her mind, now all she needs is some Lacroix!

Towleroad loves Teresa Heinz Kerry, but seriously, if Jennifer Saunders stepped in, would anyone notice?

  1. Happy guys... In France, our First Lady looks like the Patsy's Grand-Mother !!

  2. Ummmmm. I believe it is "EdWina".

  3. Actually, I thought she was born Edwina, but got rid of the "w" to make her name sound more fashionable. Edina it is.

  4. Guys,
    what are you talking about?
    The resemblance is definitely Anne Murray (sp?) all the way. Look at the nose, the smirk, the hair and the cheekbones.

  5. I firmly believe that everyone on earth has a twin somewhere. Wonder if the Secret Service knows?

  6. John is right...the "W" was sacrificed in the name of fashion. It's definitely Edina.

  7. OMG! You're absolutely right! BRILLIANT!

    Now with some bleach and quite a bit of teasing of the hair, do you think we can make Elizabeth into Patsy???

  8. I love her. She's got class... like I doubt she'd allow limos adorned with longhorn hood ornaments to be in her motorcade.

  9. I thought the Fabs drank Bolly, not Veuve. Oh the narcissism of small differences.

  10. Teresa is refreshingly honest, has enough money not to care what others think about anything, and hopefully will be a delightful counter to the zombiesque Stepford wife that is the Laura Bush. I lift my glass of Bolly to Teresa, the next first lady...clink! The comparison to Eddy Monsoon, one of my faves, is spot on, except for the falling down part. Do not think Teresa does so much, as the media meatheads would most certainly wet themselves with photo opps galore.

  12. Have you seen the bucket on elizabeth? She'd never pass as Patsy.

  14. Hum .. I think she looks more like -the other- brisish actress Juliet Stevenson!
