Monday blues. They’re a real thing. And the perfect setting for the tragic disappointments on the BFA red carpet last week. I started off excited and quite confident that my favourite accent would prevail and the Brits would wow me with some spectacular fashion. Sure, there were some incredible choices made and some beeeeeeautiful pieces throughout the night (see my previous post); but once again I was underwhelmed by a majority of fashion icons and usually flawless figures.
Why oh whyyyyyyyyyyy must some people be so unashamedly clueless? I simply do not get it. Ok fine, not everyone has the passion and eye for trends and what works on their body but hello that is why you have stylists! I have said it so many times and I will say it again – you cannot all afford to dress yourselves but FFS you can afford someone who knows what they are doing. Although if we are going to be perfectly honest I wonder if some of these mishaps come from a calculated stylist decision (even worse).
However, what is most upsetting in all of this is that the people who dictate what we wear and how we style it are oftentimes the ones screwing it up the most! Seriously, WTF?
So here you have it, the worst of the worst at an event celebrating and awarding fashion. It is the biggest mystery. But perhaps it will remind you that even the most successful, influential and coveted style mavens GET IT WRONG (and even supermodels can look stupid).
BFA 2014 you totally sucked here.
I actually cannot even believe I am putting her on this list. The queen of everything, Anna Wintour, seriously missed the mark in my eyes. I fear there may now be a special spot in fashion hell reserved just for me but I just don’t get it. She could literally wear anything (I mean the woman is best friends with every designer and stylist ever in the history of the world and she chooses this shmutzik stupid flower dress and frilly shoes?) I just. I can’t. And I’m sorry. I am so sorry.
And it doesn’t end there.
So many prom dresses. From the 80s. That your mom helped your grandmother make. On a budget.
And then the after party happened. And things just got weird.
UGH. It’s so sad.
Until next time xxx
