Oysters

I’m not sure what inspired Kate Bosworth’s Loewe dress.

Perhaps some oysters in wedding apparel? Or the fog character in those Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwich commercials?

Orange you glad to see me?

I was on a little vacation, and came back to see Michelle Monaghan wearing this Louis Vuitton train wreck.

Whaaaaat? Was I gone too long? Did my eye sight get distorted from too much sun? WTF is this thing? And what would compel anyone (other than Madonna, who is paid to wear Vuitton) to wear this monstrosity?

Fashion solace

Olga Kurylenko’s Chanel dress is an enormous Quantum of Solace. Is she trying to look like a Jamaican mermaid widow? Or a Nolan Miller Barbie, a la Dynasty? I think Joan Collins wore this dress twenty years ago.

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?

Save the jokes

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.

The Duchess

September 4, 2008 at 8:41 am (Bows, Keira Knightley, Strapless, Tulle) (, , , , , , )

I am REALLY excited to see The Duchess. I am reading the book right now, and can’t wait. Keira Knightley plays Georigiana Spencer, (the great-great-great-great-great aunt of Diana, Princess of Wales) who becomes the Duchess of Devonshire. During her day (the late 1770s), she was a fashion icon and the tabloid darling.

Seeing the movie costumes alone should be worth the price of admission, unless they are chosen by the same person who picked this Alexis Mabille dress. Wouldn’t that much tulle in your armpits be unbearable scratchy!?
