Super freak

You gotta give it to her…Kate Moss has cajones. I think she is super-human freak of nature. Break-ups don’t faze her. Late nights don’t faze her. The sheer discomfort of denim against tights doesn’t faze her. And, apparently, she doesn’t need to eat very much to maintain this stamina. Wow.

I have to chuckle that black blazers are the “new” hip item. Hello! Who doesn’t have a million black blazers. Granted, styles and cuts change. But on principle alone, I don’t know how a black tuxedo jacket can be defined as cutting edge.

Certainly not when you pair it with a striped tee shirt, denim shorts, black tights and black mary janes. I sincerely hope this isn’t a trend that catches on…

Death to the maxi-dress

July 10, 2008 at 11:21 am (Ashley Tisdale, Maxi-dress, Ruffles, Tribal) (, , , , )

Confession time: I’ve been sick and tired of the maxi-dress for some time. Our courtship didn’t last very long at all. I saw a few Jessica Simpson or Eva Longoria Parker photos, and I was out. Done. Moved on.

Now I’m not just tired of them, I am poke-my-eyes-out, why-do-we-continue-to-get-punished tired of them.

Today’s wailing and gnashing of teeth is directed at Ashley Tisdale. The fabric is horrible. It is just plain ugly. It isn’t even good enough to be used as upholstery at Taco Bell.

Here’s the only good thing I can muster about it: at least it’s not a jumpsuit.

Stylin’ Stylist?

July 10, 2008 at 8:51 am (Clutch, Maxi-dress, Necklace, Rachel Zoe) (, , , , )

A fashion stylist’s basic charge is to make people look good. In theory, at least, I’d think that person should look good themselves, right?

I will concede that Rachel Zoe doesn’t look horrible here. At least she is kinda half-heartedly smiling, and her hair is pretty.

But you’ve got to be kidding me with the shapeless, drop waisted, gunny sack, skin-tone-yellow dress here. Does she even have a body under there? Or is she just a cube of bland and boring cheese?

What is the point of working out and starving yourself (not that I do either, honestly) if this is what you are going to wear?
