Gross Burberry

{pictureRef (, align:”left”)}I often peruse the couple
announcements in the Times, just to see what’s going on among the
Northeastern elite class.  Usually, they are pretty
standard.  At least one person has a parent in the
Boston-Washington corridor, or the couple are from New York. 
Someone has an Ivy League or Ivy-equivalent degree or two.  And
occasionally there’s a photo.

But this one made me retch.  Same for BF.  It’s not the text so much as the photo.  The obvious shmoopiness combined with the Burberry scarf wrapped around both of them
Power elite, party of two.  It’s all too reminiscent of the “Sex
in the City” episode where Charlotte spends a maddening amount of time
and effort to compose a picture of her fiance and her; she has studied
the wedding page in great detail to find out what the NYT is looking
for so she can guarantee that her picture goes in.  This one is so
obviously such an attempt, it’s hard to take it seriously.

Sends shivers up and down my spine.

Let it never be said that recent gay weddings have exhibited the height of bad taste.
