Jeanne Beker fights for content as she assumes post as Toronto Star contributing editor
Jeanne Beker, arguably Toronto’s most famous fashion personality, has joined the Toronto Star’s stable of writers. In her first article as a contributing editor for the paper, she muses on a pair of Jimmy Choos for eight (yes, eight) paragraphs. Are they too uncomfortable? Should she return them? According to Beker, they are “sleek, sexy and totally seductive, with just the right amount of toe cleavage,” yet by the end, she hasn’t been able to make a decision on whether to return the $695 shoes (we await the result with bated breath). Beker uses the footwear discussion to launch into the notion that everyone (even on Twitter) has a valid sartorial opinion. “I can’t wait to hear from you. Let the dialogue begin,” she notes, hoping, we suppose, to get ideas for future columns. So, next time you see Beker in Yorkville, be sure to weigh in on her purchases. It’s a dialogue!
