Russian Real Estate-alite Janna Bullock Is Creepysexyscary

The last time we caught sight of the weirdly unaging zillionaire developer Janna Bullock, she was wearing a skin-tight leopard skin miniskirt in the pages of Haute Living. For her profile in today's Home and Garden, the Russian mother of two chose something slightly more demure, a "fluttery Valentino suit," "tiny, kitten-heeled shoes," and "an enormous bag of brown leather encrusted with huge pink and amber plastic 'crystals.'" Veteran reporter Penelope Green gives clear instructions here to any J-school youngsters who think their profile subjects are crazy bitchy gauche scary scrappy dangerous test tube babies born of freewheeling Russian ethics and a tigress' business acumen but are too polite or value their lives and limbs too much to say so. We'd say more but we're scared of Janna Bullock too.
