Cindy Lou Who

Cindy McCain is proof positive that spending a lot of money on designer clothes doesn’t necessarily mean you will be stylish.

Although she has previously demonstrated a strong fondess for garish colors (remember turquoise, mustard, and fuchsia?), at least she usually she sticks to one monochromatic garish color at a time.

Earlier this week, she selected an overly festive How the Grinch Stole Christmas color palette. Augment the red and green color scheme with the striped texture to her dress, the knitted and tasseled teapot cozy of a cardigan, and the bright pink wrist cast, and instead of Cindy Lou Hensley from Arizona you have Cindy Lou Who straight from Whoville.

PS Does that make John McCain the Grinch? (Sorry…I just couldn’t resist!)

Oy Vay O’Day

We know Aubrey O’Day has high needs for attention. She’ll do whatever it takes to get her picture taken. Imagine her and Bai Ling and Phoebe Price stranded together on an island with no photographers. Heaven.

We hate to give her the attention she craves by posting her fashion choices. So let’s not focus on her. Instead, what compelled Giuseppe Zanotti to make these crazy peep toe shoe boots? Perhaps he was inspired by his dog’s neck cone? Maybe she is joining a stiletto soccer game and needs couture shin guards?

I like the version on his website, without the extended calf cuff. This version feels like an exaggerated ankle strap, but is still within the realm of reason.
