The Los Angeles Times article, "Behold the trendy Mini-Me," was written with the inverted pyramid structure. The information is well organized with clear intention.
The writer used the nut graf concept very well. She lured her reader in with a little celebrity content before turning to the real content of the story.
The writer summarized the information well and presented the "whole picture" behind the story. She made me understand why I should care through the use of additional background information; she made the article relatable.
The article could have been structured differently, but I think the author chose the best structure to present this information. By using the inverted pyramid design, the writer allows the reader to get the gist of the article very quickly; if the reader is interested in the article he/she can continue reading, but if not the reader can move on without missing the most important information.
