Tank Top Tuesday

Yvonne Strahovski

I believe that children are our future, mostly because Whitney Houston sang it in her pre-Bobby Brown days when you could still trust her. But, seriously, it’s the youth who shall inherit the earth and they might as well wear a tank top because they're inheriting a seriously warming planet. What? I’m just trying to think positive. While some of these ladies are on the outer edge of age-appropriateness for me, I’d hate to be accused of ageism. When it comes to women in tank tops, I am a strict equal opportunity luster. In fact, Special Agent Sarah Walker, err, Yvonne Strahovski above is our oldest tank topper at 26. But don’t worry, Chris Hansen, I checked all their IDs. Everybody’s legal, nobody’s going to jail. Put away the cuffs…or maybe not. Ahem. And with that, I give you Tank Top Tuesday: The Next Generation.

Leighton Meester, 22I don’t watch “Gossip Girl.” Why do I suddenly have the feeling I’ve made a terrible, terrible mistake?

Lindsay Lohan, 22Is it just me, or has she gotten hotter as she has gotten gayer?

Freida Pinto, 24“Slumdog Millionaire” made me a believer. This tank top made me a worshipper.

Jessica Stroup, 22Tank Top + Fire + Kissing Heather Graham = Almost enough to make me watch “90210”… almost, but still no.

Rihanna, 20Standing under Rihanna’s umbrella is optional. Staring at her tank vest is mandatory.

Hayden Panettiere, 19What kind of space-age polymer does your tank top need to be made out of if you’re indestructible? These are the questions that keep me up at night.

Kristen Stewart, 18Why do vampires love tank tops? Two words: easy access.

Mandy Musgrave, 22, and Gabrielle Christian, 24Oh, Spashley. If only your storyline lived up to your tank tops.

Blake Lively, 21
Blake Lively
It’s official. I’ve made a tragic error in not watching “Gossip Girl.”

First, I adore your blog. Second, Ms. Snarker you simply must watch Gossip Girl. After last night Leighton Meister officially made my top five list.

GG is completely unrealistic and requires frequent suspension of belief. I love that in a mindless eye candy show!

Vikki said...

I prefer an older vintage but, I have to say, Freida Pinto wins this round.

Pyewacket said...

Can you next feature a Tank Top Tuesday with someone at least age 29 and 1/2...?

Otherwise, I feel that soon I will have to join AARP.

Thank you.

:P

Melissa said...

I may not be proud of it, but I certainly do love Gossip Girl. Lots of pretty people running around NYC with ridiculous story lines? Love it!

megan said...

you should just try the first few episodes of season 1 and see what you think. they walk around in silky nighties a lot and the story line is pretty good.

Yvonne Strahovski and the girls of GG...thank you very much indeed!

Sheesh -- does no one over 30 wear tank tops??? LOL

Belhoste said...

Yvonne Strahovski = too hot for words!

Juliet said...

I'm a big fan of Tank Top Tuesdays in general, but I found this one especially brilliant because it contains women closer to my age than usual.

Good to see my generation's going to have no difficulty upholding the grand tradition of looking good in tank tops.

dc said...

OK,one dreadful omission: where's the one of Ellen Page? aged 21.

I was seriously thinking about presenting Yvonne Strahovski to you in a comment, because I figured that if you knew about her, you'd never miss the opportunity to mention someone that hot (and whose existence of current or previous boyfriend(s) is unknown). Glad to know you do appreciate the hotness in Ms. Strahovski. ^^

Makes me all mushy for blondes and I've always been a brunette kinda girl...

Danielle said...

gossip girl is actually pretty awesome. i came for leighton/blake's hotness, but i stayed for the over-the-top storylines (and minidresses).

Josephine said...

In Ms. Snarker's defense, she regularly features ladies well over age 29 looking totally amazing in tank tops. Those of you who feel dirty looking at younger women, just look away this one time!

Mia said...

Boy oh boy.. Lidsay and Kirsten are totally hotties... girl oh girl... :D

let me dance said...

HK said...

Cough...wheeez...your geriatric readers over 30 feel like creepy old ladies what with the ages posted like that. Let me get my cane so I can run the kids off the lawn.

Seriously love your blog Ms. Dorothy. I rarely miss a post. Thank you!

bets said...

Yvonne Strahovski (insert Homer Simpson gurgling sound here). You would think her in her skivvies would be enough, but that little slice of skin between the undies and the tank top, I don't know....can't.....look....away....

Karin said...

Yvonne, Leighton, and Blake...how did I miss this yesterday!? Those are my three favorite women in the world right now. You NEED to start watching Gossip Girl - if not just for the lesbian subtext between Leighton and Blake! :)

Gotta love my generation's sexy tank top-wearing women.

babs said...

I think you should be watching Gossip Girl too as it's very, very fun.

And hey, if Serena and Blair aren't your type, there's also Vanessa (who's boho hot), Jenny (youngish hot) and Lily (stately hot). In short, many opportunities to see lovely women and way addicting storylines.

Of course, one of the reasons I watch is for Chuck and his hotness, which may not draw you in.

But, keep in mind, once you get hooked, you will get very, very hooked.

I think you've officially wandered into the category of blogger/psychic-mind-reader. As someone who's close to the age of these deleeectable women, I feel no shame in saying that this has to be one of my favorite posts ever. It starts out with Yvonne, forchrist'ssake. I haven't met another Chuck fan, let alone someone who appreciates her tendency to wear black tanks all the time. So then I started thinking, she should totally put the girls from Gossip Girl. And what do you know, Leighton and Blake. But then I started thinking, there's no way this is complete without MY imaginary wife, Jessica Strouper. And then the fire and the tank top and the smoldering look happened, and then I burst into flames.

The B said...

Totally agree with Melissa and Danielle, Gossip Girl is awesome.

Thanks for the Tank Top Tuesday! ^^*

Anna said...

It's not just you Dorothy, Lohan looks smokin there and has certainly gotten hotter since she's gotten gayer, but most importantly she's a lot happier and it's nice to see :)
