Art deco

There is a reason that Art Deco was more for buildings than for clothes. Unless you *want* to look like the Chrysler building, I advise you stay away from Kelly Lynch’s dress.

And why is the dress so schlumpy? Unless she wanted it to match her schlumpy hair.

Picnic chic

I don’t like to ridicule celebrities for what they wear in private. If you step on a red carpet, you better be looking your best, darn it.

If some paparazzi is hassling you as you go to Starbucks or are in your own backyard, then you don’t deserve to have your fashion choices critiqued. You’ve got enough to deal with– like some wacko shoving a telephoto lens in your face while you are just trying to run some errands.

I made an exception in this case because Abbie Cornish and Ryan Philippe are “debuting” themselves as a couple. They gotta know that pictures are going to be taken. And she is going to be assessed. Did they start dating before Ryan’s marriage ended? Who is she? And, while we’re at it, what the heck is she wearing!?

Is Abbie a member of a unique Amish or Mormon sect that mandates dowdy shoes? Does she have a rare disorder where her skin shrivels up if it is exposed to sunlight? Why else would she be sooooo covered up at an outdoor summer event?

Golden girls

Dear Diary, 

For Nelson Mandela’s birthday party I think I’ll wear a dress inspired by The Golden Girls. He is ninety, after all. And I just love that show! Betty White is a riot, and Rue McClanahan is one saucy lady.

Picture it. Sophia Petrillo escapes from the lanai in her muumuu and hauls butt to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. She goes to some parades and even snags a few gold beads and a handful of doubloons, until that wacky Bea Arthur finds her and hauls her back to Shady Pines.
