Women who are camera ready -- all the time

Jodi Johnston takes a rightful place on any list of the most polished, put-together local women. You know, flawlessly elegant, quietly sytlish, perfectly composed, dressed to kill but seemingly without effort.

But a few other women in the region match her in this regard.

We know this might not be a politically correct discussion; focusing on looks is sometimes frowned upon. But come on -- it's fun to think about!

So, who else can claim this sort of title?

Read our short list of some of the more high-profile women in this category, then go to the PopStand blog at and comment on our choices -- or give us yours.

*Clotilde Perez-Bode Dedecker -- Formerly a top administrator in the Joel A. Giambra era of county government, she is now president and CEO of the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo.

*Nancy A. Naples -- She held the county's pursestrings for 11 years as Erie County Comptroller; then she ran the state's Department of Motor Vehicles. She's also run for Congress.

*Crystal D. Peoples -- She used to run the majority wing of the Erie County Legislature; now she's the state Assemblywoman in the 141st district.

*Marsha Henderson -- Held the top job at KeyBank for years. In 2005, made the switch to academia, where she took the position of vice president for external affairs at the University at Buffalo.

*Susan Banks -- For many years she reigned on the evening news on WKBW, anchoring at 6 and 11 p.m. Today, she runs a successful image consulting company out of her Clarence home -- with clients including "Baby Joe" Mesi.
