Kicking her heels

I wonder if Keds is rethinking selecting Mischa Barton as their spokeswoman. I can tell you that this look doesn’t inspire me to run out to my closest Keds retailer to pick up a pair!

In their ads, MIscha looks fresh-faced, demure, sporty and Audrey Hepburn-esque. In this photo, she looks slouchy, dried up, and homely. Plus, she has a “I’m wearing these shredded Grandma sneakers cuz it’s my only paying gig right now” look on her face.

The dress could be cute. We really can’t tell. But it looks a little cheap, especially along the hem. But the jacket seems rather random, with the erratic zippers, pockets, belt and other assorted doo-dads.

The accessories are a mish-mash of garage-sale bohemian cast offs. And her eye makeup is better suited for a formal avant garde look, not a rumpled suburban hippy .

Woman of the year?

June 4, 2008 at 10:25 am (Fur, Geri Halliwall, Sequins, Sheer) ()

Britain’s Glamour Woman of the Year awards are highly suspect. Case in point: a so-drunk-she-couldn’t-walk Lily Allen shielded her face with her Editor’s Special Award. Perhaps special is code for “PR Nightmare.”

Then they selected Spice Girls as the band of the year. WTF? Their tour was cut short because of low ticket sales, and Geri Halliwall showed up in this disaster.

Let’s take a closer look. The bottom half seems totally disassociated from the top. The bottoms is gauzy, loose, flowy, and a muted gray.  And why is the visible slip only on the bottom of the dress?

The top is so skin tight that her boobs are flat as pancakes. Then it is bedazzled with blue fireworks, culminating in two triumphant nipple bursts.

The whole look is topped of with a Zsa Zsa white fur boa. Wow. Nothing says Woman of the Year like a white fur boa…
