Why I Admire Whoopi Goldberg's Style: She Doesn't Give A Fig (What? You were expecting another word that begins with F? Ok, that too.)
Now over the years Ms. Goldberg has gotten a lot of flack for her sartorial choices, but so what? She stays true to herself. She doesn't care what the fashion establishment thinks. She doesn't have eyebrows. That's right, no eyebrows. And on her it works! Surely you've observed this. Don't we all eventually have that Aha! moment where we realize, "OMG, Whoopi Goldberg doesn't have eyebrows!!!!" I reiterate, she doesn't need eyebrows, she only needs Whoopi. In other words, she just needs to express who she is through her style and forget everyone else --and that's exactly what she does! The same goes for you and me. That's what fashion's really about: defining fashion on your own terms. Too often I dwell on lack and all the clothes I want but can't afford --and Whoopi Goldberg is one of those people who reminds me that style is not about the price tag but about the individual.
