When I was 14, I didn't really "get" Judy, but once I hit 18 I was like, "Fuckin' Judy, man! She gets me. She gets everything." While her flair for the dramatic tended to overshadow any Real Art she attempted to do, she still ended up being a great example of how once you get to a certain age you're just like "fuck it," and you gotta put on a beret and do what feels right. The nice thing about Judy was that she marched to the beat of her own drum, and didn't take crap from anybody. Sure, she made everyone in her family take on different personas when she started dating an artsy boy from The Moody School, but who hasn't? If I had a little brother, I totally would have tried to dress him up as a butler, too, because STOP EMBARRASSING ME. Plus, she was a total fashionista. Marie Schrader totally jacked her style. —Katie
