I Don't Get Cory Kennedy

Gawker proclaimed her the It-Girl of 2006, and last year I found her staring back at me from the cover of Nylon.  Cory Kennedy is an internet celebrity of the MySpace generation (she has almost 18,500 friends), a scene kid who charms us for reasons unknown.  She's a fan of acid-wash, apparently, and ill-fitting pants, and yet she made the cover of Women's Wear Daily Beauty Biz.  Forget the fact that her smudgy eyeliner gives her the appearance of a sweaty girl just waking from her party coma.

We're supposed to believe she, who makes the Olsen twins look like pint-sized Jackie Kennedies, is the face of true street fashion--a modern day rich-girl hobo who makes hideousness chic through sheer confidence.

I'm unconvinced.  Or maybe I just don't get it.
