A few weeks ago I was in a big white studio surrounded by make-up artists, stylists, a photographer and my girls Anna and Sabrina – being totally hyped up and getting beautified – to shoot an eight page fashion editorial for Cosmopolitan. A little while later, a shiny new Cosmo drops on my doormat (it’s in stores now!). So I flip towards the opening shot of the spread and see myself (big smile, big hair) in this exact same jacket. Back then, when I was raiding Cosmo’s fashion closet, I simply figured it was vintage piece, with the velvet detailing and gold buttons. (I fantasized that, perhaps, it was something a girl in a marching band in some tiny American town wore to preform in.) No idea why I didn’t recognize the jacket in a different context, but I do know it makes it even more fun wearing it now.
