UP: RACHEL MADDOW
How refreshing to see a TV pundit and Rhodes scholar whos loyal to her signature style. Rachel Maddow, 35, waxes poetic about politics and takes on the GOP on her daily eponymous show on MSNBC. This month she appears in Vogue, and the self-described butch lesbian didnt succumb to a glitzy glam makeover; shes wearing a Jil Sander suit and black Converse high-tops.
