In the midst of breaking news and current affairs, one small thing on Channel Nine’s Today Show grabbed attention on Wednesday morning.
A jacket. Lisa Wilkinson’s jacket.
(God, Lisa’s so cool, don’t you think? An I-can-pull-off-a-military-jacket-without-resembling-the-trumpeter-in-a-marching-band Level Of Cool.)
‘There’s another celebrity you remind me of… John Lennon,’ Karl,like some dorky military jacket skeptic, replied before flashing an image of Lisa beside her new jacket-clad doppelgangers.
But not everyone is marching to the beat of the jacket's $929 drum.
"Who does your wardrobe Lisa?" one non-fan, Cynthia, wrote on the show's Facebook page. "They should look into a career change."
Others thought the number wasn't reminiscent of MJ, but of Sgt. Pepper.
"My daughter wondered what she was trying to be. I told her a Sargent Pepper moment. [sic]"
"Yes!!! I was getting more of a Sgt Peppers vibe too."
For what it's worth, Lisa, I think you look Bloomin' Beautiful-with-a-capital-B. And as soon as I find the many, many dubloons I need to afford your jacket, it'll be mine.
