Girl Crush: Isla Fisher
[There are some women out there that we just can’t get out of our minds. No, we aren’t switching teams - yet - but we do have some serious crushes on some pretty fierce females. These ladies are all special in their own right and we aren’t ashamed to tell the world we love them.]
It’s no secret that I have a soft spot for Aussies, and the lovely Isla Fisher is no exception. Even if she’s a lady.
While the Australian accent is always a turn-on, what really gets me weak in the knees is someone who can make me laugh…and matzoh ball soup.
Isla, then, is perfect for me. The woman has to have a sense of humor – she’s engaged to Sacha Baron Cohen, after all. And, after three years, she has successfully pulled a “Charlotte” and converted to Judaism for her man.
But Isla was around long before she started celebrating Hanukkah with her guy. She was a child actor on popular Australian television shows way before she graced us with her presence alongside Freddie Prinze Jr. in Scooby Doo. Since then, she’s come a long way. Her role as the crazy sex fiend sister in Wedding Crashers won her a Breakthrough Performance award at the MTV Movie Awards and, more recently, she was in Definitely, Maybe and lent her voice to Horton Hears a Who.
A hot Australian who also does cartoons? Be still my heart.
Isla Fisher is as hot as her fiery red hair. In 2008 she was #61 on Maxim’s Hot 100. And despite being near naked in that little photo spread, the woman’s fashion sense is what gets me riled up. I’m jealous of all the fashion-forward outfits created for her character in Confessions of a Shopaholic, not that I could afford them. But what I can afford is Isla’s laid back style that’s easy to imitate (even on a starving student’s budget). Now if only I could get my hair that color…
Isla is living proof that you can have it all. She has a successful career, a fiance who she obviously hearts (she spent 3 years converting for him!), and an adorable daughter – not to mention she looks stunning while doing it all. I’m totally crushing on Isla Fisher.
