Muse Monday: Nina Van Horn

Did anyone else watch Just Shoot Me? Along with Will & Grace (see Grace Adler) and Mad About You (see Jamie Buchman), it was one of the big sitcoms on NBC Must See Thursdays.

My favorite character was Nina van Horn. An ex-model, she is the fashion editor at the fictional Blush magazine. At the time that I watched it, I noticed that the actress portraying her, Wendie Mallick, was notably the tallest woman I saw on television. As a teenage girl approaching six feet tall, it was comforting to see a confident, poised, well-dressed, hilarious female in pop culture.

I love her ability to pull off sleeveless in any season (I covet toned arms as she has), her penchant for animal print, and ability to effortlessly and confidently wear a pair of high heels.
