Ann Curry’s Best Looks on TODAY
A week of swirling rumors and speculation came to a close yesterday when Ann Curry announced she was leaving the TODAY Show after 15 years on the morning news program. While she will still be with the network as a special national and international correspondent, many (myself included) suspect that she was pushed out because of the TODAY Show’s declining ratings, and NBC thought a quick fix would be replacing Ms. Curry. More shockingly, she was on for the first hour or two, had 15 minutes to say goodbye, then didn’t come back. Even Meredith Vieria got a two hour farewell episode when she left after being on for only five years, which makes Ms. Curry’s leaving so suddenly all the more suspicious. But I digress.
One of the many things I’ll miss about Ann Curry’s absence is her style. She was, by far, the best dressed anchor on the TODAY show and I always found myself inspired by her outfits. She always wore bold, bright colors, trendy shoes, and took risks (the yellow dress, on the right, apparently had a pretty high slit in the back…).
Here’s just a sampling of what she’s worn over her 15 year tenure with the TODAY Show.
Personally, I can’t wait to see what amazing things Ms. Curry does in her new role. Wherever she goes and whatever she does, she brings class, professionalism, dedication, and style. I hope she takes comfort in the fact that many viewers see right through NBC’s decision. I know I do.
