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.

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.

Trashier

Am I crazy, or is this just a trashier version of the Livia Giuggioli (aka Mrs. Colin Firth) Mamma Mia premiere dress?

I kissed a girl

December 18, 2008 at 1:58 pm (Corsage, Feathers, Headband, Metallic, Shiny, Strapless, Tights, Uncategorized, Zooey Deschanel) (, , , , , , )

Zooey Deschanel seems to be going for the Lily Allen look-alike award. The outfit, the hair, the pose. I don’t like that trend. Next thing you know she’ll have a Christmas tree on her head. It starts innocently with some shimmery silver tights and is a slippery downhill slope from there.

QVC

December 11, 2008 at 1:15 pm (Bangles, Belt, Buttons, Clutch, Costume, Metallic, Military, Paula Abdul, Ruffles, Sequins, Shiny) (, , , , , )

Sweet Jesus, Mary and Joseph.

Is this how you have to dress to sell jewelry of QVC? Or is Paula Abdul competing in the Michael Jackson dress-alike contest?

Hair extensions

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.

Lethal

November 24, 2008 at 12:09 pm (All Black, Boots, Deep V, Halter, Leather, Leggings, Metallic, Rihanna, Shiny, Strapless, Studded) (, , , , , , )

Rihanna: is this fashion or a deadly weapon? It makes a great AMA stage costume, but I’m honestly a little frightened by it. Very Pamela Anderson/ Barb Wire, Bridgette Nielsen, or “Letha” Stella from Project Runway. And we know how classy they all are.

PS I do not like your hair as of late. Please rethink the short bouffant look!

Wearable art

October 22, 2008 at 9:11 am (Asymmetrical, Beaded, Brooch, Clutch, Katie Lee Joel, Metallic, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sequins, Shiny, Tights) (, , , , , , , , )

I get that the Mobile Art Chanel Contemporary Art Container opening is about fashion as art, and not necessarily about what’s wearable or salable. So, if there is a time to go conceptual, forward, quirky, this is it.

Nevertheless, Sarah Jessica Parker looks like a Chanel bag lady and Katie Lee Joel looks like Flapper Pocahontas.

Dancing queen

October 17, 2008 at 10:12 am (Clutch, Harem pants, Katie Holmes, Lace, Necklace, Shiny, Strapless) (, , , , , , )

I look at a lot of celebrity pictures. It’s kinda a hobby. Some make me swoon. Some make me laugh. Some make me shake my head in puzzlement. But very few make me really cringe. Cringe as in furrowed-brow-while-covering-my-eyes cringe.

This one made me cringe. What is it? Has wacky Katie Holmes gown to “fashion designing” again? I really just don’t get it. At all.

Now, I’m not a fan of jumpsuits. But I could see the white pants and strapless top combo as a jumpsuit. Retro seventies. Dancing queen. Harem pants. Not a favorite look, but one I could at least understand.

I have absolutely no clue how that seventies disco vibe coordinates with a sheer lace top. What!?!? Then we’ve added the eighties power-suit necklace and I’m utterly confused.

From a galaxy far, far away

October 16, 2008 at 12:00 pm (Deep V, Hood, Melanie Brown, Pastels, Sequins, Shiny) (, , , , , , , )

For the MOBO Awards, Mel B was apparently inspired by Grace Jones in a galaxy far, far away. Oh yeah, and her supernaturally buoyant boobs.

How else to explain this shiny pink hooded far-out confection?
