THE PLANK FEBRUARY 16, 2007

Work It Kim, Work It

I don't know what kind of crack they are smoking over at Newsweek, but they have really done it this time. In "celebration" of Kim Jong Il's 65th birthday, the news magazine has asked fashion designers to make over the Dear Leader. The whole thing just smacks of effort. Check out the Newsweek homepage, and click on the Kim Jong Il icon for an interactive look at several designers' visions for the birthday boy. Whether you think he's "generationally too cold war," needs to accessorize with a nuclear warhead, or "needs a more casual look," you're bound to be delighted. You can even download a "Kim-Plate" to design your own couture for Jong Il. Fierce!
