Thursgay Styles: Cinderella, She Seems So Easy

Writing the world's five thousandth piece about slutty Halloween costumes, Stephanie Rosenbloom shrugs her shoulders and offers up an acknowledgment that should pretty much accompany every Styles article:

IN her thigh-highs and ruby miniskirt, Little Red Riding Hood does not appear to be en route to her grandmother's house. And Goldilocks, in a snug bodice and platform heels, gives the impression she has been sleeping in everyone's bed.

"It's not a good long-term strategy for women," Dr. Tolman said.

There's so much going on here you may just have to read the whole thing.
