Fashion Failure

If you wish to be well-dressed, make certain that you know the names of clothing features, and are familiar with basic human anatomy. Here is a woman (“celebrity stylist”) whose recommendations for winter style include a ridiculous pair of pants or trousers that barely cover the pubic region, which she mysteriously labels “the waist area“.  And imagine the Plumber’s Crack that must be visible at the back. No wonder so-called celebrities look so hideous!

QUOTE from the woman who is promoting
this tragic garment:
“These are the best fitting corduroys I’ve come across. They’re extra long—which I love because I’m tall—and fit perfectly in the waist area. The vintage shadow color, which is a beautiful gray, is a great alternative to traditional denim, and the corduroy texture is so exactly right for this time of year.”
The waist is located an inch above one’s navel. These trousers don’t even come close.

Anchorwomen Badly Clad

An ABC Talking Head Wearing Too Much Jewellery and a Low-Cut, Sleeveless Evening Dress in the Morning–in Mid-October

This is the same woman who wore a white, sleeveless dress on Good Morning, America after Labor Day. (So did Elizabeth Vargas, who bobbed-up for a special report on the Amanda Knox release in late September.) The GMA anchorwoman, who appears five days a week with George Stephanopoulos (his sartorial style is as good as can be expected, incidentally), has no regard for the seasons, and is stuck like glue to arm-fattening cap-sleeves and hopelessly devoted to sleeveless dresses. It's as though she is constantly trying to show off how "toned" her arms are. Why not just wear a muscle-shirt? And dangling earrings in the morning just don't fly. Some men and women seem to be exempt from receiving style advice on the television production set. Perhaps broadcast standards have just disappeared, which occurs to me when I hear these talking heads mispronouncing simple English words on a regular basis.

And now, from the great American South-West:

It Is Not Advisable to Wear Arm-Fattening Cap-Sleeves, Clunky Necklaces and Too Much Lip-Gloss on Television

How Many Colours are Enough?

It’s time to stop the false compliments, and applying the term, “fashion maven” to the wrong people. Flattery is one thing, but those who draw analogies between this first lady and Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy are outright loons. They put the “sick” in sycophancy!

Another Disfiguring Style: Cap-Sleeves

Cap-sleeves make everyone’s upper-arms look chunky. They do not emphasize musculature; rather, cap-sleeves make one’s muscles look like unappealing lumps. Attractive sleeve-lengths are 3/4 and to the wrist. Short sleeves are not elegant–when was the last time you saw someone look chic in a bowling shirt? If you must expose your arms, sleeveless styles are more elegant than cap-sleeves and short sleeves.

Is Everyone Hoping for a Part in the Remake of “Freaks”?

A few weeks ago, I posted a photo of a famous actress whose low-rise pants made her look strange.
For the purpose of demonstrating the effect of low-rise trousers on men, here is a famous actor, sporting the same tragic look.
