Michelle Obama followed Jackie-O’s fashion footsteps across the pond. Has she been a little more casual than I would suggest? Perhaps. But she’s also been looking fresh and classy and fabulous.

Today’s outfit I just don’t get. First and foremost, it does not match. And I think it was intended to match. The shoe, dress and cardigan colors are all off, and not it a quirky “this doesn’t match but it goes together” way, but in a “she really wants these to all the the same color but they aren’t.”

And what is the deal with the sweater? Besides being off-buttoned (is that on purpose?) and manically argyled (the left sleeve, which you can’t see here, is also argyle), it just isn’t appealing.

While I love that she is rewearing the inaguration Jimmy Choo shoes, I didn’t think the green color worked on inaguration day and I don’t think they work today.

Is this an outfit

March 16, 2009 at 11:20 am (Buttons, Cardigan, Deep V, Liv Tyler, Pockets, Sheer) (, , , , , , )

I’m not sure I can even call this an outfit.

Doesn’t it look like Liv Tyler threw a cardigan over her nightie to grab the newspaper off the front stoop?

Or perhaps she’s recreating the final scene from Bridget Jones’s Diary, where Bridget is chases after Mark Darcy in her tiny undies after he reads the unflattering comments in her diary.

Either way, this just isn’t an outfit.

Props

I guess you gotta give Diane Kruger some props for trying. She tries very hard. And she is usually soooo close.

But, as they say, close only counts in horseshoes.  Certainly not in fashion.

The Roberto Cavallichain link dress seems a little frumpy figure skater. And I don’t get the fur shrug with dress. Put it on a tailored Dita von Teese or Victoria Beckham look and I get it. But with an edgy dress and trash sack booties? Nuh-uh.

New kind of crazy

December 19, 2008 at 12:50 pm (All Black, Cardigan, Lily Allen, Pleated, Sheer) (, , , , , , )

Lily Allen’s always been her own brand of crazy, but now she’s mixing it up to be a new kind of crazy. I like the move toward sophisticated, but don’t think that a sheer full-body condom is quite necessary.

Hair extensions

December 8, 2008 at 11:42 am (Cardigan, Metallic, Rumer Willis, Sequins, Shiny, Tank) (, , , , , , )

I’m all for experimenting with hair styles and colors. But this ‘do should be retired.

The color is actually nice, but the stringy curls and shapeless style are bad, bad, bad.

Newlywed

December 5, 2008 at 10:51 am (Belt, Cardigan, Tights) (, , , , , , )

Marriage can be a great thing, and ScarJo looks very happy. But marriage does not seem to be helping her wardrobe. She’s moved from Sexy Siren to the Isle of Frump.

Case in point: This Mr. Rogers inspired outfit. In gray. Wool. With tights.

Please, Scarlett. Let’s bring sexy back.

Poodle

November 25, 2008 at 3:08 pm (All Black, Cardigan, Clutch, Katie Lee Joel, Knit, Tights) (, , , , , , )

Two questions: 1.) Why would anyone invite Katie Lee Joel to the Australia premiere? 2.) Why the heck did she come dressed as a black standard poodle?

Mad plaid

November 24, 2008 at 8:11 pm (Boots, Cardigan, Draped, Katie Holmes, Plaid, Ruffles, Suri Cruise) (, , , , , , )

I really thought/hoped/dreamed/prayed we were past the full length tartan plaid look. Sure, I get that the kid likes to wear dresses and refuses to wear pants. Does that mean that mom has to wear a big, full, ruffled, shapeless dress too? Suri’s dress and cardigan are way cuter than this ensemble.

First lady

November 5, 2008 at 12:45 pm (Cardigan, Michelle Obama, Sashes) (, , , , , , )

I’m thrilled and excited that a) the political ads will finally end and b) that Obama was elected.

I’m less than thrilled with Michelle Obama’s Narciso Rodriguez dress. I loved that the new first family was all coordinated. But I just didn’t like how the dress cut her up. It was black at the neckline, red at the bust, black at the waist/cummerbund and sides, red at the thighs, and black again at the hem. That’s a lot going on.

Save the jokes

October 8, 2008 at 10:31 am (Cardigan, Kenley Collins, Project Runway, Sarah Silverman, Strapless, Tulle) (, , , , , , , , )

I know Sarah Silverman is a comedian, but she should say the jokes, not wear them! This Betsey Johnson dress looks like Amy Winehouse became a synchronized swimmer.

The petal skirt also reminds me a bit of Kenley’s reptile mermaid.
