Fish tank

September 26, 2008 at 11:50 am (Deep V, Halter, Rihanna) (, , , , , , )

I think Rihanna’s style is amazing. She may not have much cash in the bank (relative to her star status), but she knows how to choose the cream of the designer crop.

I don’t think this Gucci halter dress makes the cut. It looks like a fish tank, with fluorescent fake plastic ferns swaying along the bottom and little bubbles floating up. All we need is a glug, glug, glug noise to make our fish tank look complete.

Speechless

Wow. I am utterly speechless. There just aren’t words for Traci Bingham’s outfit.

PS Here is classy personified. The ruffles are detachable.

Cry for attention

September 2, 2008 at 9:24 am (All White, Deep V, Draped, Sashes, Sheer, Thandie Newton) (, , , , , , , )

It’s hard to get the photographers to notice you when Madonna and Guy Ritchie are also on the red carpet. But Thandie Newton didn’t need to resort to such drastic measures to get a little attention!

I’ll grant that the dress is edgy and dramatic. Given that the movie being premiered is Rocknrolla, dramatic makes sense.

The skirt is just crazy. How does one get into it? It’s like a hammock. Or harem pants, without the pants.

I’m giving two thumbs down to this outfit. As it seems critics are giving to Guy Ritchie’s movie. Can you believe he already has a sequel in the works?

At a loss

August 28, 2008 at 3:11 pm (Clutch, Deep V, Heidi Montag, Jumpsuit, Sashes) (, , , , , , )

I’m at a loss. Spent. Don’t know what else to say. Reason doesn’t work. Logic means nothing. So I have no words left to explain how and why and where I do NOT like jumpsuits.

Instead, I’ll focus all that contempt and dislike for Heidi Montag instead. Grrrr.

Going for gold

August 25, 2008 at 9:56 am (Cut-outs, Deep V, Headband, Paris Hilton, Sequins, Shiny, Stretch) (, , , , , , )

Unless Paris Hilton is participating in an Olympic sport, there is no good excuse for this outfit. While our expectations from Ms. Hilton aren’t high in the first place, this get-up is truly ridiculous. It isn’t flattering, it isn’t functional, and sure as heck isn’t fashionable.

And just in case you didn’t know who she is, it was particularly kind of her to emblazon her name along her T, with a follow-up across her A.

Queen of upstaging

August 22, 2008 at 8:54 am (Aubrey O'Day, Boots, Deep V, Feathers, Leggings, Snakeskin) (, , , , , , )

You know the rule that guests don’t wear white to a wedding, because it upstages the bride? Well, that’s nothing to The Queen of Upstaging– Aubrey O’Day.

Think of the poor animals had to sacrifice for this outfit. Ostriches without feathers and snakes without skin. And for what purpose? For her to look like a a trampy feather duster?

Holy dress, spider woman

August 10, 2008 at 4:12 pm (All Black, Bijou Phillips, Clutch, Corset, Deep V, Ruffles, Sheer) (, , , , , , )

I first saw this dress from the back and thought, “Cute dress. Great shoes. Who is Bijou Phillips again?” Then I saw a photo from the front and thought, “Crazy web, spider woman. Great shoes. Who is Bijou Phillips again?”

Perhaps this dress proves that even bad attention is at least some attention. If that is her goal, then a spider web corset under a plunging v-neck dress is just the thing. Unless she is trying out for the part of Morticia Addams, there is no other explanation.

PS Did we mention that the shoes are great?

There’s no place like home

August 6, 2008 at 2:28 pm (Deep V, Denim, Katie Holmes, Sequins, Suri Cruise) (, , , , , , )

Did Katie Holmes pack a weekend duffel bag for her stay in New York? And isn’t NYC usually unbearably hot in the summer? She’s been wearing these pegged Prps Jeans every dang day, with long-sleeved sweaters and cardigans, as if she doesnt have any other clothes.

The Wizard of Oz quotes about her shoes are whizzing around my head. Is she off to see the wizard? Is there no place like home? Is Suri  really Toto? Sweaters and pegged jeans and flats, oh my! I know we’re not in Kansas!

Finally, what is up with Suri Cruise? Sure, she is cute as a dumpling. But how can a two year-old be on a swing and not break out in a huge grin? It doesn’t seem natural. Maybe those bottles she still uses put her in a trance?

Second glance

July 22, 2008 at 11:32 am (All Black, Bows, Cut-outs, Deep V, Kate Walsh, Sashes) (, , , , , )

It took a second glance to recognize the craziness of Kate Walsh’s dress.

First glance: kinda cute, rather nondescript, but no obvious components to hate, detest and revile.

Second glance: WHOAAAAA Nelly! What is the deal with this dress? What is that in the back? A cape? A rear-facing bib? A mud-flap?

Gumby

July 21, 2008 at 3:03 pm (All Black, Backless, Deep V, Jumpsuit, Shiny) (, , , , , )

I’m starting to run out of various ways to post this simple truth: I don’t like jumpsuits. I can try to be clever and witty. I can digress on sequins, necklines, shorts or pants. But it still boils down to one simple fact. If it’s a jumpsuit, I don’t like it.

Maggie Gyllenhaal has been amusing in her various Dark Knight promotional appearances. Her wardrobe is usually unconventional and highly conversational. And I do like (to a certain degree) that she seems to not really care if people like her outfit or not.

But today, she looks like a black satin version of Gumby, dammit. And I am guessing that Gumby isn’t the fashion inspiration for too many people.
