What a sad day it is today. Ann Curry is gone, I still can’t believe it. Dear Ann. Sweet Ann. Poor, pitiful Ann who TRIED SO HARD to fit in, who WANTED SO BADLY to succeed, but just couldn’t connect to MEAN GIRL Matt Lauer. I’m still just REELING. Let’s all take a moment to celebrate the Technicolor glory that once greeted us each morning. Nobody – NOBODY! – wore color like Ann Curry. Bitch could color block LIKE A FIEND. Her outfits POPPED off the screen. After the dreary housecoats that Meredith Viera subjected us to, and compared to the flood of Elie Tahari designer separates that Savannah Guthrie is about to inflict upon us, she was a breath of fresh air. MARK MY WORDS. We will rue the day we let her pass from our daily lives. Historians will look back on this era as TRULY the last gasp of style on morning television. I’m just going to say it: ANN CURRY IS THE BABE PALEY OF OUR TIME. Here are some of her best looks, with more after the jump.
