One of the bikinis Minnesota’s snowboarding Olympian Lindsey Vonn wore for SI is making a sensation across the LA workplaces of swimsuit designer Kerry Cushman, a local of Cambridge.

“We have been thrilled to be within the Sports Illustrated swimsuit version that got here out yesterday. It’s simply big,” stated Cushman, prez and CEO of Kushcush. “You know it is the creme de la creme of swimwear press. When I came upon that it was Lindsey, I used to be simply thrilled. She’s from Minnesota and I additionally come from an extended line of skiers. To carry the 2 worlds collectively is fairly superior. I do not know Lindsey personally.”

Although Kushcush swimwear and style bikinis are carried by Saks Fifth Avenue, Shopbop.com, Anthropologie and Barney’s, Cushman was “off-the-charts comfortable” to see her work within the sports activities magazine.

“Our web site hits have been by the roof, and it has been fairly the whirlwind the final 24 hours,” Cushman informed me Wednesday. “My e-mails have been continuous; I’ve 1,300 e-mails in my in-box.”

On web page 84 of SI, Vonn is pictured within the snow sporting Cushman’s “Diana Bikini” design: “Somewhat crimson quantity. It’s a high-waisted-bottom sort of a retro fashion with an underwire demi-cup prime.”

Sounds tame. I informed Cushman that almost all of her designs have to be sort of racy as a result of my laptop is obstructing makes an attempt to view web sites showcasing her creations.

“They usually are not actually that racy,’ stated Cushman, referring me to the SI web site and the remainder of you to kushcush.com and designerstylediaries.com. The title of her 5-year-old firm is derived from enjoying together with her initials and her nickname, Cush. “I needed one thing that was private,” she stated. Speaking of private, she added: “My mother, Linda West, my greatest fan, cried when she picked up her copies of SI.”

Piling on Prince

Prince apparently has some fence-mending to do with nationally syndicated morning radio present host Tom Joyner.

My buddy Jawn Murray, the D.C.-based celeb/leisure pundit and common on Joyner’s present, referred to as to say that Tom dropped an on-air tidbit about Prince the opposite day. “What he stated was: I have not been proud of Prince since he tried to cost me one million {dollars} to do my charity cruise,” stated Murray.

“I assumed, ‘Let me name C.J. and inform her this.’ At one time Prince gave Tom a donation for his Tom Joyner Foundation, which raises cash for traditionally black faculties and universities, however nonetheless, when Tom requested Prince to come back carry out on the annual cruise, Prince needed a million to come back on the ship.”

Why would Symbolina try this? I requested Murray. “Who is aware of why His Purpleness does the issues he does,” stated Murray, including: “Tom ought to be cautious, although, earlier than Prince writes a track about him the identical method he wrote one about you, C.J.”

Based on that Vikings struggle track Prince just lately penned, Joyner’s acquired nothing to concern right here. Had Prince been capable of summon a few of the ardour that impressed “Billy Jack Bitch,” I’m certain there would have been a little bit extra struggle in that sorry “Purple and Gold” track.

D.L.’s dimples

While rolling with a Tooth Fairy, Delta Dental of Minnesota senior company communications specialist Heather Hofmeister fell for a special sort of cavity: D.L. Hughley’s dimples.

Waiting at Fox 9 to advertise a Tooth Fairy look on the MOA, Hofmeister was blown away by “how cute DL is.”

Cute’s simply not a phrase I consider when trying on the comic.

“He is de facto down-to-earth, humorous, witty and has nice dimples,” stated Hofmeister. “I’m a sucker for dimples. Have you seen my husband’s?” Nope. The top of willowy Leo Hofmeister, a Fox 9 director, is what I at all times discover.

Hughley was nice about taking a photograph with Heather. However, “When requested if he needed an image with our male Tooth Fairy, DL waved his hand and stated, No, I’m good, with an enormous smile,” she stated.
