TOO MUCH: Marchesa/ J Mendel/Monique Lulhier drapieness, this isn’t prom on the OC. GET OVER IT. The next time we see a Hollywood actress in a draped dress we are going to rip it off her body and hang it on our windows. Overall no one took any real fashion risks that worked and that made us feel all sad and disappointed, we imagine our feeling of disappointment was similar to that of Shakira’s at the VMA’s when she realized that she was wearing the same dress as Pink.
Fashion Moment of the Night: Sarah Silverman’s moustache: disgusting, heinous, and delightful all at the same time (glad she stayed in character the whole time the camera was close up on her face). Now if she had just lost that blue princess Barbie dress…
Ok we feel uncomfortable enough when we encounter a bad case of T.H.O., so seeing straight up nipples all over the runways was a little disconcerting (and made Chaz feel like a pervert), but sheer done right is just oh so right. Chaz might not be adding sheer tops to his wardrobe anytime soon, but if he were…and he were a girl…he’d remember to wear all sorts of undergarments because nothing makes your more uncomfortable than seeing nipples out in public.
Sweatpants Outside of the House: The Jessie Selter
We’re surprised Anna Wintour didn’t spontaneously combust at the Alexander Wang show when that puffy shouldered sweatshirt blouse made it’s way down the runway and it was literally locker-room gray. This is what we wore to gym glass in middle school when started going through puberty and felt too awkward to continue to wear Under Armor. Please let this trend be as short lived as Tom Delay’s participation on Dancing With that Stars, it’s just wrong.
Maybe because Marisa was disgusted by Preen’s use of crumply barf texture, she refuses to acknowledge that texture will be a trend in the spring, but Charlie begs to differ. After a few too many episodes of Project Runway and listening to Tim Gunn complain about boring drape dresses (MAKE IT FUCKING WORK!) Charlie was trying to make it work more than the designers were. Charlie votes texture and Preen 4 lyfe.
Charlie refuses to give an opinion on lace, so Marisa will take the lead on this one. Loves it. She died while eating a banana. If she could wear Christian Siriano’s turtleneck body suit, but in all black lace and have it be socially acceptable, she would.
CTTS (That's Cut Outs, but we cut out all the vowels; we're fashion forward like that- expect to see our next post without consonants)
Some intense debate has been going on over at Le Chic C’est Blog headquaters over the cut out trend. It was freakin’ all over the New York runways, so Marisa is tempted to give Charlie this one and admit that she might be buying a cut out dress from Urban Outfitters in the next few months, but in general we’re on disagreement over this trend. Therefore, we want to show you some examples of appropriate versus inappropriate cut outs to guide you through the dangerous forests that is the cut out trend.
Although Marisa rocked a Charlotte Russe shirt in 8th grade (ok and maybe 9th grade) that read “Made in the 80’s”, we missed 8 solid years of arguably the best/worst decade ever in the history of the universe… second only in the worst category to the Dark Ages, that shit was bad. Expect to see us stuffing the shoulders of our blazers with tissues and rocking a few scrunchies. Actually no, Marisa would never wear a scrunchie in public and Charlie’s hair is now far too short for that (RIP Chaz’s old hair).
