Queen of upstaging

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?

Dirty bo peep

August 7, 2008 at 10:54 am (Ashanti, Belt, Bows, High Waisted, Lace, Leggings, Sheer, Shiny, Stretch) (, , , , , , )

I have a new hypothesis. The more tags I connect to my post, the worse the outfit is. You see, I tag the various fashion components (like sequins or denim or hats). The more tags I add, the busier and crazier the outfit is.

Ashanti may have a new record for the number of tags affiliated to one outfit. Let’s count the number of tags on this Dirty Little Bo Peep ensemble:

1. Belt
2. Bow
3. High-waisted
4. Lace
5. Leggings
6. Sheer
7. Shiny
8. Stretch

Maybe I need to add tags for:

1. Gaudy earrings
2. Silver eyeshadow
3. Puckered waistband

Workin’ at the car wash

July 31, 2008 at 3:29 pm (All Black, Katie Holmes, Leggings, Ruffles, Tank) (, , , , , )

Part of me really likes Katie Holmes. I think she was refreshing and perky once. And although I think Tom Cruise is a controlling Svengali, I hope she is happy.

Her fashion choices have gone through several Madonna-like iterations. Once she was the wholesome girl-next-door. Then she was a sleek minimalist. Then she was a high fashion couture runway fan, who uttered “You cannot be unprepared for a season.”

What is she now? Hobo Chic? Downtrodden Urban? She has been sporting pegged baggy jeans, roomy cardigans, and chunky belts that look more Gap sale rack that Giorgio Armani.  And today she looks like a walking car wash.

Ice capades

July 17, 2008 at 10:13 am (Costume, Feathers, Katie Price, Leggings, Metallic, Sequins, Stretch) (, , , , , , )

Given that I don’t read look at Playboy (and given I don’t live in the UK), I’m not very familiar with Katie Price (also known as Jordan). So imagine my disbelief when I saw this photo today.

She isn’t in the ice capades. She isn’t competing in the Miss anything contest. She isn’t a Vegas showgirl. She is in a flipping BORDERS store.

I drag myself into to a Borders wearing track pants and a t-shirt. I’m lucky if they are clean and relatively un-wrinkled. I definitely don’t weary a feather shrug, sequined stirrup-sleeves, and leggings emblazoned with a crotch medallion. Oh, yeah, and don’t forget the tiara.

Rihanna has quite the goth flamingo look going today. With an art deco hood ornament.

Much too much

June 16, 2008 at 10:12 am (All Black, Belt, Leggings, Pockets, Rihanna, Ruffles, Shiny, Stretch) (, )

Rihanna certainly is an entertainer. Her clothing choices for Sunday’s Much Music Awards in Toronto were quite entertaining!

She arrived in the long black dress; that skirt looks like it is make out of neoprene! And what is the deal on the belt/suspender combo? She looks harnessed for hauling a farm wagon. And I really don’t get it given the buttoned belt of the skirt.

She then performed in the ruffled top and leggings ensemble. I am so OVER the rubberized legging look. The ruffled top looks like a shapeless crinkled garbage bag. Is there actually a belt floating around in there? And the hat screams Village People.

This has GOT to hurt

June 5, 2008 at 1:50 pm (Knit, Leggings, Mischa Barton, Ruffles, Vest) ()

I literally winced in pain when I saw this picture. Ouch! Those pants simply cannot be comfortable. It looks like she pulled out her stirrup pants from 6th grade, when she was both shorter and lighter. I can’t imagine that any gynecological professional would advocate a woman wearing pants that tight.

And I can’t even find the words to describe the vest. Is it knit? Crocheted? Latch-hooked? Or was she attacked by a swarm of Grandma’s toaster covers and tea cozies?

Wow. This one leaves us truly speechless. And covering our eyes.

Punk seamstress

June 2, 2008 at 9:46 am (Charlize Theron, Corset, Leggings, Metallic, Stretch) ()

Maybe Charlize Theron decided to come to the MTV Awards at the last minute. Or maybe she wanted to look like the charter member of the punk rock/seamstress union. But this outfit is not up to the usual standards we see from her.

The bustier looks like a metallic dress form. But most of all — it is too small, and does nothing to enhance her cleavage. The snug fit of the leggings and the bustier make her look wide in the hips.

(Charlize does get an A+ on the accessories. We especially love the shoes!)
