Italian super blogger Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad has been drawn as a Simpons character by series creator Matt Groening himself. The illustration is part of a celebration of the show's 25th anniversary—it's the longest running scripted show in television history!—and the blogger's site revamp (those two things go together, right?). Also immortalized in cartoon form: Celine's Nano bag and glitter loafers of her own design (check them out in the full length drawing after the jump).
Ferragni noted in a post on her blog that "surprises with [The Simpsons] are not over yet," perhaps alluding to a role on the show. Teen blogger turned 'zine EIC slash Broadway actress Tavi Gevinson voiced a role on the show last week, though she played a woman named Julia, not herself.
