The Tiger Woods 'mistress' look -- not unlike the 'stripper' look

December 16, 2009 |  4:45 pm

Women seem to be coming out of the woodwork to claim they had affairs with Tiger Woods. If they are all telling the truth, then the world's best athlete has a definite "type." And it's not bookish. Of the 10-plus women who've come forward with claims of affairs with the links star, at least eight of them look like they might have a strip club or two on their CVs.

Jamie-Jungers Of course, among the accusers are two bona fide porn stars -- Holly Sampson and Joslyn James -- who work the blow-up doll look endemic to their industry to a tee.

Here's what many of the women have in common: Too-long hair extensions (usually blond) blown-out to wig-like perfection, breast implants shown off in too-tight tops, tanning bed-orange complexions, super-shiny pink-white lip gloss (on obviously enhanced lips, for a few of them) and a love of open-toed cha-cha heels, lace bras and skin-tight boot-leg jeans. Essentially, they call to mind a lineup of human Barbie dolls dressed in the hottest styles of 2005.

Woods' very-blond wife, Elin Nordegren, is a former bikini model. But her style now when photographed with her famous husband or their child seems sporty and subdued compared to the alleged mistress'.

 Still, if Tiger hasn't stayed true to her, at least he seems to have stayed true to her type.
