Art deco

There is a reason that Art Deco was more for buildings than for clothes. Unless you *want* to look like the Chrysler building, I advise you stay away from Kelly Lynch’s dress.

And why is the dress so schlumpy? Unless she wanted it to match her schlumpy hair.

Sack dress

I am decidedly *not* feeling the love for Rosario Dawson’s Burberry dress. Let me count the ways:

Shape: What shape? It is snooze boring and utterly shapeless.
Color: What color? Puce green? Even *if* the color didn’t photograph well, it’s still not an attractive color.
Accessories: More snooze. Plain black clutch. Plain black pumps. Plain black beaded necklace.
Undergarments: I suggest you wear some.

Wearable art

I get that the Mobile Art Chanel Contemporary Art Container opening is about fashion as art, and not necessarily about what’s wearable or salable. So, if there is a time to go conceptual, forward, quirky, this is it.

Nevertheless, Sarah Jessica Parker looks like a Chanel bag lady and Katie Lee Joel looks like Flapper Pocahontas.
