Today we match France’s Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, with the nationally renowned Tan Mom, a.k.a. Patricia Krentcil. As a teen, Lagarde was a member of the synchronized swimming team. She was also once a summer intern in Washington for then-Rep. William Cohen. Lagarde is not likely into tanning, as she’s a vegetarian who doesn’t drink much alcohol and is something of a gym rat. Tan Mom, meanwhile, was treated for alcohol abuse and is a self-admitted tanorexic. According to the Daily Mail, she celebrated a successful trip to rehab by hitting the beaches of Malibu.

If nothing else, this is a huge honor.
