So I’m going through these pictures of LeAnn Rimes with her partner in squintery Eddie Cibrian squinting at an ESPY’s pre-party, and I wanted to remember what she looked like before she survived only on a diet of married dick and Brandi Glanville’s cloned genes. I went all the way back into the 1900s and pulled out the glorious topaz gem on the left (duh) from 1997! Now THAT is a look I can promote.
In case you couldn’t already tell, the answer to my headline question is a heavily hair sprayed THEN!!!! The LeAnn of 1997 was a 15-year-old who got up an hour before everybody else in the house so that she could tease her hair in front of the bathroom mirror (with a picture of Tina Yothers taped onto it) until the wave on top of her head resembled a decapitated swan head. That was a girl who appreciated all the colors in the Wet ‘N Wild rainbow and wasn’t afraid to dance along it with her lips. That also was a girl who told her friends that she was styled by Charlotte Russe personally and they probably believed her.
The LeAnn of today looks like an emaciated salamander in a Cache dress and that’s a damn shame.
