Longtime readers of ATL may recall how, in an installment of Legal Eagle Wedding Watch back in September, we took a detour from the lawyers to discuss the rather curious wedding announcement of two non-lawyers. The digression was triggered by a reader email:
Check out the Chandra Collier/Juris Kupris wedding announcement. It seems completely out of place. Neither family is from New York. She went to Indiana. He is a fitness trainer. The announcement is very, very short.
Why was it included? The picture. He looks like a male model.
Based on the photograph that accompanied the announcement (above right), we disagreed:
Male models — the runway models, not the catalog ones — tend to be skinnier (the “male waif” look is still in). We think Kupris looks more like the shirtless guys they put on the covers of Harlequin romance novels.
We now retract that assessment, based on more recent data. Tonight, while flipping through the current issue of New York magazine, we were amused to come across Mr. Kupris, featured in an article on the eating habits of fashion folk. In the accompanying photo, he’s runway-model thin — which makes sense, since the poor boy barely eats:
We stand corrected. Please don’t accuse us of not acknowledging our mistakes around here!
