Rachel Maddow in Vogue Magazine: Nerdy Chic but Not Contrived

I love a good break-out star, and this year my favorite starry success story is Rachel Maddow. During the election, she seriously kept me and a lot of people I know sane, and even after, her witty take on politics and the country’s easy-to-be-freaked-out-by state of affairs keeps me from totally losing it on a day to day basis.  Plus, she’s so freaking cool in a genuinely nerdy way.

To prove it, here she is from her recent Vogue shoot, mixing Jil Sander with classic Converse All Stars.  On anyone else, it would seem so contrived and borrrrr-rrrrring, but if you’ve ever read an interview with Maddow, you know she’s not trying to be ironic or faux geek-chic.  I mean, she spend her weekends in Massachusetts going to her favorite recycling center when she could be whooping it up in NYC, and she stays up at night worrying about the economy after tossing back a few at an old man bar. She’s an honest-to-goodness nerd.

Yet, gay or straight, man or woman, you cannot deny it: Rachel Maddow is heartbreakingly hot. Why didn’t they give her the cover?
