I Can’t: Resort 2018’s Worst

Anna Sui Resort 2018 The proportions, the hemlines, it’s like layers of granny when combined with her prints. Stella McCartney Resort 2018 I wasn’t feeling the play with silhouette and volume- some of it came down to styling- the pairing of oversized jackets with a-line skirts…but honey, I can’t with the draw-string, the palm-tree print, the sneakers,…

Met Ball 2017: Rei Kawakubo Comme des Garçons

Christian Dior SS16: Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

Wow, Christian Dior has lost it for Spring/Summer 2016…I can’t wait to laugh at Natalie Portman in these hideous rags of unfinished cropped sweaters paired with old-timey under garments and “dresses” made out of fabric so cheap it wouldn’t make a proper dinner table napkin.  Blah is how I would describe the collection…aside from the…

Fashion Ads

I said I was all of a sudden going to look a lot more normal with the onset of the androgyny and dandy trend for fall, 😂.  The Versace ad shown below looks like it could’ve been styled in my closet…yes, I have leather meggings (although it was for Halloween).    I can’t recall seeing a…

Oscars 2015 Best and Worst Dressed

Lupita Nyong’o wore a custom Calvin Klein Collection by Francisco Costa, made of metallic tulle and silk lamé encrusted in natural pearls of varying sizes.
