Batik sling

Kristen Bell seems to be sporting a rainbow batik boob sling. Perhaps a rainbow is appropriate forand event called Outfest, but it that don’t make it good fashion.

I feel like I’m drunk and staring at tv test screen. “This is a test of the Emergency Fashion Broadcast system. If this had been an actual fashion emergency, the signal you just heard would be followed by official fashion information, news or instruction.”

Victorian horsey

September 25, 2008 at 4:59 pm (Belt, Eva Herzigova, Lace, Mock Turtleneck) (, , , , , , )

I get the look of Eva Herzigova’s Dolce & Gabbana dress. And I don’t hate it. But I also don’t love it. And I really don’t love the bright red lipstick.

The dress feels like Queen Victoria dressed in Ralph Lauren. It also feels a little heavy-handed, with the lace and the darting and the gathers and the high neck and the long sleeves and the scalloped edges.

Closer inspection of the fabric is also confusing. At first, I thought it was a lace overlay, a la Prada. But close up it seems that it is printed on the fabric. I dunno. I’m just so confused.

Squirrel sleeves

Mmmm…pardon me. Your Royal Highness? Princess Eleonora of Yugoslavia? I most humbly interrupt your royalness to let you know that…ahem…you seem to be…ahh…under attack.

I am not sure how squirrels got into the swanky Tod’s Private Dinner. The footmen will be thoroughly interrogated. I certainly hope the didn’t draw any blood. But these traitorous squirrels have overtaken your overly blousey top and are wreaking havoc on your shoulders.

Politics in fashion

September 25, 2008 at 10:33 am (Kristina Apgar, Necklace, Polka Dots, Ruffles, T-Shirt, Tank) (, , , , , , )

Memo to Kristina Apgar:

A.) Not really sure who you are.
B.) Agree with your political choice.
C.) Strenuously object to your fashion choices.

It’s hard to be fashionable and political at the same time. If you insist on political apparel, I say try a simple fitted tee with some rockin’ jeans (a la Halle Berry, telling us to Barack the vote) and be done.

Do *not* attack a t-shirt with scissors to make a shapless tank, throw on a Minnie Mouse ruffled polka dot skirt, and add pumps and pearls. Barack deserves better than that. You certainly aren’t winning him any votes!
