        Does anybody remember what Portia De Rossi used to be like pre-Ellen? I do. She seems like a much happier person now. I know she’s said that Ellen has had a lot to do with that in previous interviews. And she does look really cute in that outfit. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her in anything like that before. It works for her.

          Oh definitely. I don’t want to say, “Now she looks like a lesbian!” because what does a lesbian even officially look like? But I’m glad she feels like she can play around with gender a little bit and not have to look waif-like and uber-femme if that’s not what she wants to look like 24/7 (not that there’s ANYTHING wrong with being a hardcore badass femme lady, but I think we all know how she struggled to keep up appearances she felt she had to maintain), and I think she really deserves someone as awesome as Ellen.
