When I first read that Kristen Wiig was in “V” Magazine I just assumed she was showing off her “gentlemen greeter.” You would think that too, right? Right? Riiiiiiight? Anyway, she’s not showing off the Grover Beavland, but she is transforming herself into three random women from what I can only assume is history. Yup, I just checked. It is history.
Quite possibly one of the best SNL cast-members of all time (yeah I said it), Wiig morphed into Carmen Miranda (and gives Bugs Bunny a run for his money), Brigitte Bardot, and Frida Kahlo (whom I just discovered is technically not Selma Hayek). Personally I think that she looks like Meredith Vieira in the last photo, but it’s still a win-win-win.
It’s strange because whenever I write about Kristen Wiig I always get emails from randoms telling me they can’t believe I think she’s funny. I don’t just think she’s funny, I think she’s brilliant. Am I wrong? I don’t think I can be. Similar to my love of Kelly Cutrone, Ramona Singer, and Harriet Carter, I want to split a 30 pack with Wiig and then knock over a 7-11. Why can these things never happen for me? I read The Secret. Blah.
