The rules of fashion, as Elle Woods would say, are simple and finite. Clothes should fit well, be in proportion to your body shape and size, highlight your positive features, minimize your problem areas, be age and event appropriate, and express your individuality.

A person should wear their clothes. The clothes should never wear the person.

And yet, many women with oodles of money, free designer clothes in droves, and a cadre of stylists still can’t quite get it right. Here, we celebrate those people and pick apart their gaffes. Enjoy.

    Hi Ive just launched a brand new blog called FAT: Fashion And Tunes. http://fashionandtunes.blogspot.com.

    I really love your blog and I was wondering if you would be able to place a link on your website and I will do the same on mine?

    Basically it is as the name suggests, a blog focused on bringing you the newest fashion videos, ad campaigns, shows, models etc but also delivering the newest and most amazing music that’s out there.

    I’m a fashion student just about to go into my final year studying Fashion Design and have had past experience working with Vivienne Westwood and her design team, along with this I scour the net religiously looking for every single thing that’s happening right now and in the future with fashion so I can assure you that you will be the first to know whats going on.

    Along with this, I love music and the general London club scene and try my best to go out as much as possible to places like White Heat, Trailer Trash, Aquarium and Boombox when it was around which leaves me in a position where I feel that I know whats good and what is going to be big when it comes to music.

    Thankyou for your time, please let me know at your earliest convenience.

    Gary Moore
