It's Not Just Fashion

Because Friendster is no longer cool and we refuse to tweet, we're making a tumblr. Delve into the terrible combination of Charlie and Marisa's minds that is: It's Not Just Fashion.

permalink Usually we’re not a fan of when celebrity magazines do “Who Wore it Better?” (the skinnier person always wins!  It’s just unfair!), but we love this Fabsugar post about Kate Moss and Carine Roitfeld.  We never thought the day would come that someone would out-dress Kate Moss, but Carine has proven worthy of worship yet again.  We remember seeing this pic of Kate a while back and thinking she looked so-so, but mostly uncomfortable and kinda sweaty.  Whereas Carine looks composed and relaxed in what is likely a sticky and stiff dress to wear.  She successfully made this all-leather turtleneck look understated.  While Kate looks like she’s recycling her pleather catwoman costume from a few Halloween’s back, Carine looks fashion-forward and luxurious.

Very cool.  Very chic.  So French.

permalink Here we have Carine Roitfeld, esteemed Editor-in-Chief of French Vogue and one of the world’s leaders in trend-setting, appearing in public sans son pantalon, as the French would say.  This picture had us begging the question put best by nymag.com’s “The Cut”: “If Carine goes without pants, does that make it okay?”  This is the very same question we asked ourselves when we first saw this photo, because although Lady Gaga and the S/S 2010 runways have been practically pushing the no-pants trend down our throats, we truly did not  believe that it would ever become acceptable.  And yet, here we have a woman who epitomizes French-chic (aka global-chic), seemingly pulling off the no-pants trend, in a lace bodysuit no less!!! *see previous posts about our obsession with lace.  We think that Carine has officially opened the no-pants floodgates: where is this trend appropriate?  Where might one buy an outfit that manages to work even without pants?  What will our grandparents think?!  The list goes on and on.
What do you think about the no-pants trend:  Should it catch on?  Will it catch on?  And who can actually pull it off?
