Gorgeous, Star-Fucking Hillary Clinton Aide Buys Fake Handbag, And Other Stuff 'Vogue' Left Out

"It took a certain courage for Vanessa Redgrave, Huma Abedin, Robin Brooks and Lisa Randall — among our other age exemplars and serious women all — to admit to the pleasure that fashion brings them," wrote Anna Wintour in the Vogue editor's letter we can't stop vomiting about. Anyway, uh, who's Huma? She's an Arabic-speaking aide to Hillary Clinton who may or may not be dating John Cusack blah blah SO PRETTY AND VAIN AND SUCH PRETTY PRETTY HAIR.

Looking through Abedin's closet, you can see the progression from a young college graduate who wore Ann Taylor suits, thrilled to land a job as an intern in the White House, to, eleven years later, a Chanel-wearing, deeply confident 32-year-old woman.

To which we were like, oh please, God, grant US the "confidence" to wear Chanel suits at 32. And then we got a surprising call from a Hillary insider, who we're paraphrasing here to protect the innocent:

Oh, please. Her father is a professor; it's not like she's some oil princess. People in DC wear Ann Taylor suits because they're poor, not because they lack "confidence." She probably makes $100,000 a year and she can't take freebies. And her Birkin bag is a fake.

Oooh, busted!

Our source admitted that Huma's special friend John Cusack, whom she "baby-sat" on a Clinton-organized celebrity trip to Saudi Arabia, could ethically buy her a Birkin bag as a Valentine's Day present. And he agreed with the story on one thing: homegirl knows how to abide by the Boy Scout motto. Says Vogue writer Rebecca Johnson:

I once saw a movie that spoofed beauty pageants by having a contestant pack a suitcase as her talent. Watching Abedin fill her suitcase for that ten-day trip, I realized the movie had it wrong. Packing is a talent, one Abedin has clearly mastered. (Note to self — folding jacket on the horizontal makes much more sense.) ... Watching her pack also answers a mystery: Those bouncy waves of great-looking hair? Be prepared to carry around a professional hair dryer that weighs at least five pounds.

Now, if only we could get someone to plant a five-pound "hair dryer" in Anna Wintour's luggage, our work would be done here. (And yeah we thought of that joke because she's MUSLIM. Offended? Might I redirect your anger to the media's unattainable standards of beauty? Thanks.)

There's a PR firm behind this overly flambouyant commentary of Huma Abedin. No matter how high she sits, she still sits on her buttocks. And ones without much cushion judging from the photos. Why are people given to glorifying and deifying common folk? And she's not really that pretty. I googled her and read all these article tid bits and I thought, maybe I missed something in life. Maybe I missed this woman and what she could teach me. I got the sense that I should forsake everything and leave. Fortunately, my senses got the better of me. She's just a dark haired woman in a anglo saxon woman saturated work theater. That's her only appeal; being the only brunette in a blonde world. Otherwise, she's quite plain and rather waify looking.
