Obsession of the Day: Fallen Princess, Sassy's Christina Kelly's Blog

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

It's impossible to underestimate the effect that Sassy magazine had on an entire generation of women—yours truly included. Our devotion to Christina Kelly, one of the magazine's top editors, and thereby tastemaker, in the early 90s, is so deeply ingrained in our psyches that, to this day, we're not entirely sure we'll ever truly be able to like Milla Jovovich. (We know this may seem disjunctive, but Milla, whom Christina profiled in Sassy around the time of the release of "Return to the Blue Lagoon," once called Christina fat.)

What can we say? Teenage allegiances die hard.

Anyway, we're so excited to learn that the now-freelance Christina Kelly has just started a blog, wherein she writes about stupid model poses, working as a freelance writer, and door-to-door sales people. Yay! Welcome to the internet, Christina Kelly, we're keen to see what develops.
