The fourth issue of Style.com/Print is out today with a list of the top 10 most-viewed shows on Style.com nestled inside–and it’s pretty fascinating to see who made the cut.
It’s been a tough few weeks for mini skirts and the young women who flaunt them. Between CNN’s blame-the-victim tone in Steubenville to the helicopter parents picketing Victoria’s Secret Pink, you’d think America’s most pressing national security issue is teen girls in glittery panties.
