Today, Barbara Walters, co-creator and co-host of the show, confirmed that former Playboy model-turned-actress Jenny McCarthy would be filling Hasselbeck’s role. Having appeared on The View 17 times, McCarthy was a likely candidate for the position. Besides their blonde locks, Hasselbeck and her successor have similar seemingly outrageous and outspoken opinions, engaging and likable personalities, and shared fashion interests—Hasselbeck launched a QVC clothing line in 2009 and has been seen sitting front row at New York Fashion Week; McCarthy has been photographed for her outgoing style on countless red carpets. Here’s a look at some of their similar style choices. Stephen Shugerman/Andrew H.

McCarthy's conveys high fashion, with sleek lines and overemphasized shoulders, while Hasselbeck's cropped blazer is more soft and casual.
