    Hot Girls Still Love Wall Street

    By kyle | April 9, 2010

    Love this Wall Street Journal blog post. Color me less than shocked: New York’s comelies are still very interested in banker types. I also love the euphemisms involved: not “Women interested in selling beauty to highest bidders” but “Fashion meets finance.” Fashionable is code for beautiful; finance = rich. The girls involved will, of course, complain about how boring these guys are to their gay best friends. Then years will pass and they’ll note with alarm that the guys show no inclination to “commit.” A few of them will score large houses in the Hamptons, though.
