Amy Schumer is just, like, so down to earth. She's totally just like us. At least that's the picture Jonathan Van Meter wants to paint of her—because, in his Vogue profile of the comedian, he emphasizes that Schumer wears yoga pants not once but twice.
First, on a Thursday morning in late April, "in a lounge there to board Schumer’s rent-a-jet as she heads off on tour for the weekend," she dons "yoga pants, a plaid flannel shirt, and an orange ski hat."
Then, another day on the plane, wearing "yoga pants and [a] navy-blue puffer," she says, “I don’t think [fashion is] stupid; there’s no moral reasoning ... It’s just not my thing.
“I just have this sense of entitlement that I should be able to feel comfortable at all times, like I could go to bed at any moment in what I’m wearing.”
Which, of course, means Schumer is athleisure's biggest fan. She's one of us.
But seriously, aside from her #relatable fashion choices, the profile does give us even more reason to love the 35-year-old stand-up comedian, writer, actress, producer, and overall feminist pioneer.
Her ambition is, quite frankly, inspiring.
“I wouldn’t know what motivates Tina Fey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus,” Schumer said. “This insatiable drive. I have it too. Sometimes I feel like they’re hustling, they want something, and they’re not going to stop until they get it, and they play the game. I am very into making up my own rules. Like, I don’t want to play the game and succeed at it. I want to redefine it. That’s the only way I can deal with it. Maybe that’s naive."
And she's ushering in a new era of "normal humans" over "mean girls."
