I know the last Spice Girls tour didn’t go so well. Did Victoria Beckham decide to join the Village People instead?

I love/covet/worship the Valentino bag (although Fergie’s in cream was even better), but the rest of this dumpy gray montage can go. Especially the atrocious hat/sunglasses combo. Yikes!

Undergarments

January 30, 2009 at 3:07 pm (Belt, Hat, High Waisted, Leggings, Mischa Barton, Necklace, Scarf, Shiny, Suspenders, T-Shirt, Tank) (, , , , , , )

Now, this seems like a whole lotta look for just walking down the street (even if it is a street in Paris during Fashion week).

Each individual component is tolerable, but all together (hat, necklaces, tank/tee, suspenders, belt, bracelet, skirt, tights, purse, scarf, tights, shoes) with a big hair and dark eyeliner equals too much.

And Mischa….darling…let me introduce you to a bra. When you’re wearing something high-waisted, you really need to wear a bra.

What a mess

December 8, 2008 at 12:53 pm (Hat, Hot Pants, Pamela Anderson, T-Shirt) (, , , , , , )

Pamela Anderson’s outfit is a complete and total mess.

Is it grunge? Is it a cover-up for a Flintstone-inspired bathing suit? Is it artsy? Is it quirky?

I say it is none of these. It’s just plain odd.

Mojo

November 10, 2008 at 4:07 pm (Asymmetrical, Clutch, Costume, Hat, Salma Hayek) (, , , , , , )

I *really* want Salma Hayek to get her mojo back.

Where is the va-va-voom? I don’t see it in this Stella McCartney dress. Sure, the event had a twenties feel. But I think the color makes her look washed out, the fit does nothing to highlight her tremendous assets, and the beaded skull cap is just awkward.

On the plus side, she has moved away from her previous Morticia-Addams-cover-every-inch-of-skin looks. Perhaps we should just be pleased with progress.

Begrudgingly

October 9, 2008 at 3:44 pm (Feathers, Hat, Kenley Collins, Tulle) (, , , , , , , )

I have begrudgingly accepted that Kenley Collins did indeed earn her spot at Bryant Park last night.

Despite her efforts to reconcile with her fellow Project Runway designers, she still has some maturing to do. She also has some chips-on-the-shoulder to lose. But it is about fashion and not about attitude in the end.

Watching the show, I wasn’t too aghast at Michael Kors’ comment about Kenley’s dress looking eerily similar to a recent Alexander McQueen dress. But looking at the McQueen dress after the show, I was shocked. I really hope that Kenley didn’t see the McQueen dress. Can we give her the benefit of the doubt, meaning she super-coincidentally designed almost the exact same dress? I hope she didn’t see the McQueen dress before. Truly. Or they just rewarded plagiarism.

But her design put her in the top two. Hence, Bryant Park — here Kenley comes.

I do feel badly for Jerell. His collection was overdone, sure. I didn’t disagree with last night’s judging. But the guy WON the  previous elimination challenge (inspired by the New York Botanical Garden). It’s a shame that the previous winner doesn’t get to move on. What was the point/benefit of winning that challenge?

Dots a go-go

September 18, 2008 at 2:41 pm (Agyness Deyn, Cut-outs, Hat, Polka Dots, Sheer) (, , , , , , )

Is Agyness Deyn starring in a maxi pad commercial? Why else would someone sport so many dots?

I will begin by saying that designer Henry Holland ain’t my cup of tea. So I probably wasn’t going to like anything shown or worn at this London runway show.

I guess, unless I morph into a Cyndi-Lauper-meets-Wham-circa-1982, it’s a good thing that I don’t like the House of Holland.

Springtime down under

September 15, 2008 at 11:13 am (Floral, Hat, Nicole Kidman, Tights, Vest) (, , , , , )

Nicole Kidman so rarely missteps, so this outfit is extra surprising.

I know it is springtime in Australia, but is it a good idea to celebrate with a floral dress with a contrasting front, purple tights, a bowler hat and Grandpa’s sweater vest?

Starless premiere

August 20, 2008 at 11:49 am (Hat, Mikasi Ito, Strapless) (, , , , , , )

Sex and the City premiered in Japan last night, and none of the movie’s stars attended. Not a one! Perhaps SJP is patching things up with Matthew. Perhaps Cynthia Nixon is recovering from breast cancer. But c’mon Kristin Davis and Kim Catrall–what’s your excuse?

So poor Patricia Field shows up with Miss Korea, Miss Japan, and some other Asian celebrities. Mikasi Ito apparently felt it was her duty to “fill in” for Sarah Jessica Parker as the resident fashionista. Those are some lofty Manolos to fill, and I don’t think she quite made it.

First of all, I think her breasts have sprouted evil pointy wings. Second, the hat makes her look like she is doing a David’s Bridal photo shoot at the Kentucky Derby.

Hat trick

July 31, 2008 at 5:39 pm (Belt, Hat, Lace, Solange Knowles) (, , , , , )

Those crazy Brits do like their hats. Ascot. Weddings. Any excuse to stick some wacky feathers and a few bows on their heads. And I think it’s kooky fun. If you’re Kate Middleton. Or the Queen Mum. But you have to be British. It isn’t good enough to just be in London. So Sarah Jessica Parker doesn’t qualify. And Solange Knowles certainly doesn’t qualify!

What *is* that thing on her head? At first glance, I was worried that she was being attacked by a beanie baby. Or a 24 kt gold lily pad.

Vacation

July 25, 2008 at 4:03 pm (Denim, Fergie, Hat, High Waisted, Knit, Mischa Barton, Shorts, Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , )

I’m going on vacation for a few days. What should I pack?

Here is my checklist….

m Crocheted swim suit

 

 

 

m High-waisted denim short shorts

  

m Fedora hat

 

 

 

 m A butler– I mean husband– to carry my bags

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aaahhh…forget it…too complicated. I’ll just pack my captain’s hat and call it a day.

See you in a few days!
