On two levels

June 19, 2008 at 3:35 pm (Kate Moss, Polka Dots, Sheer, Thong) (, )

This Kate Moss ensemble is bad on two levels. First, it really isn’t very cute. Reminds me of a maxi pad box.

But, more importantly, it is completely inappropriate. It is completely sheer (the red polka dots were added–for the sake of censors–by me), and she is blatantly not wearing anything underneath. A questionable decision in LA or London. But she is in Istanbul– a predominately Muslim country. That isn’t just poor taste. It’s unpardonable. At least she wore a black thong.

Good dresses, dresses, and then…

June 19, 2008 at 3:04 pm (Charlize Theron, Deep V, Floral, Fur, Stretch) ()

Charlize Theron has been *everywhere* promoting Hancock. Apparently, according to the trailer, there are heros, there are superheros, and then there is Hancock. An apt analogy for this dress, only this dress sinks rather than sings.

Although not attached at the hip, it seems that she and Will Smith are attached at the neck. But she has been looking pretty fabulous bouncing around Europe (I loved, loved, loved the white dress with the deep V and bubble skirt she wore in Paris). Playing it as edgy as she does, she is bound to misstep on occasion. Like in this Giambattista Valli dress.

The neck wrap is downright scary. Like she is being attacked by celosia plants, or she has raging case of eczema that needs ointment. Badly. The print on the dress itself seems screen printed. Or like that cosmic shrink wrap material can wrap an entire bus.

Where have you been, Mischa Barton?

June 19, 2008 at 12:22 pm (Beaded, Leather, Scarf, Sheer, Shorts, Suede, Tights, Tribal, Vest) (, )

Just yesterday, I was pining to myself, “Where are you, Mischa Barton? It’s been several days since I’ve seen you in a wacky ensemble. You actually looked quite nice at the Viktor and Rolf event in London. Maybe you changed stylists? Or actually hired one?”

But don’t despair! Our gal is back in predicatably bad fashion.

Here she is at the Billionaire Boys Club event in London last night. Maybe she was competing in a contest to wear as many random items as possible at one time– kinda like seeing how many jelly beans you can fit into your mouth at once.

 

 

Here’s the tally of items in this outfit:

1. patterned scarf
2. sheer blouse with embroidered front
3. beaded vest
4. leather jacket
5. bright yellow silk short shorts
6. black tights
7. beaded suede sandals
8. shoulder bag
