    Oksana Baiul on "the fug"

    This is a blog that rips on celebrity fashion... very random appearance by this former olympian. Skirt is a bit short for her age, nice gams though!

    judging by the number of crucifixes she is wearing in thsi picture, she is through "exploring her Jewish heritage". Or was she through once she split with Gene? Just wondering.. got to love people who jump from one religion to another!

    I never bought the Jewish thing for Baiul. I think it was just a phase, and I'm glad it's over (it just bugs me when people profess a religion for wrong reasons).

    ITA, Ptichka. I think she was into exploring her Jewish roots because Gene is Jewish.

    On the other hand, she did pick a Jewish orphan charity in Ukraine to support. I hope she is still involved with them.

    Walter from Big Lebowski is an exception

    Call me old fashioned... I think minis are inappropriate for most. Not I'm a prude, I just think its hard to look polished in a mini.

    There is little need to look "polished" if you're going to a bar. No doubt where Oksana was headed.

    Whether or not she observes the religion, she is a Jew. But old habits die hard.

    Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who found out she is Jewish 10 years ago, said in a recent interview in the New York Times that she still views her religion at Catholic, the faith she was brought up in. But she is proud of her Jewish heritage. I think the quote was 'you can't switch after a lifetime.'

    Especially when getting out of a car. Which I wish someone would explain to this woman who lives in the building next door to mine (who seems to have the World's largest mini-skirt collection and every single one is ugly) -- every now and then she parks in front of my window and gets out of the minivan and -- well, I don't really care to see what is seen in the course of that process.

    That being said, other than that aspect of it, I don't have a huge problem with the mini in general -- AS LONG AS ONE HAS THE LEGS FOR IT. If coordinated with the right top, jacket, shoes, etc, it can look pretty cute on a lot of women. As long as they remain in a standing position......:sheesh:

    And anyway, I'm not sure how many young women wish to look "polished" anymore; I mean, have you SEEN the tabloid pictures lately??

    I would be interested to know if Oksana comes across differently to Russian speakers. She has always seemed very dizzy with a large dash of drama to me. I always felt some of that impression was due to the fact that English was not her first language and she was not as expressive. She seemed to search for words a good bit when she spoke. When she would comment in the kiss and cry after some of her odder pro perfomances, I would always be

    The purpose of this was to draw attention to your face and away from your legs, which were necessarily in an awkward position for a few seconds.

    Far as I'm concerned, Oksana Baiul can wear whatever she likes....
    Ditto for Brooke Burke...
    Is Madonna still Jewish, or was that last week.....

    I guess the verdict is in.

    And Elizabeth Taylor is still English/Irish despite her conversion to the Hebraic religion.
