the oc's kaitlyn cooper. willa holland. hipster extraordinaire ?
the 17 year old girl about town has many alter-egos.
lately she's been the apple of the skullset photographer's eye, jack siegel, and with her smouldering feline eyes, oversized shirts, and perpetually mussed up hair, she certainly fits the bill. and frankly, it sort of bothers me.
how is it that she randomly becomes a hipsternet hero seemingly overnight ? she simply switched lanes, from hollywood cutie to cobraclone, in a matter of minutes. but then again, we're talking celebrity minutes here, which are significantly shorter than the minutes of we civilians. then take those already lightening fast celeb minutes and add them to internet minutes ? you've got speed comparable to flash gordon.
perhaps her transformation has been gradual, slowly evolving as she escaped from the claws of the cataclysm that is teenage television. perhaps we had not noticed the burgeoning it girl beneath the opaque veneer of marrissa's little sister.
the fact that she is now 'so fashion' is a tad irksome. but that could be just the green monster of envy talking.
either way, she's here now, and there's little i can do but admire her lifestyle: both real and cyber.
watch out tallulah & cory, it looks there's a new girl in town. or, rather, on the internet.
