Fashion Worship of Alexa Chung
It may be fashion heresy to say it, but we didn’t get the fascination with and admiration of Alexa Chung. How many fashion icon/best dressed/MVP awards did she win this year?
She was good on T4 back in the day and we like that she pooh-poohs all the attention she gets but my goodness, pick someone else (other than Kate Moss). Her main reason for all the fawning seems to be teaming luxury brands/couture with granny shoes, ‘hipster’ glasses and uncombed hair.
Pippa Middleton’s Bottom
We just didn’t get it. At all. At least it gave Kim Kardashian’s behind a well deserved break from the spotlight.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show
As a brand/marketing exercise, yes. As a $12 million fashion show, no. Where could anyone wear it?
Everyone Hating on Kanye West
Showing his debut collection in the fashion capital of the world was a risky move but the vitriol Kanye received was a bit mean. His stuff wasn’t that bad. Was it?
The Royal Wedding (the first one)
We know why they got married, we understood the world’s fascination with it but after declaring ourselves a ‘Will & Kate Free Zone’ we didn’t get that we stayed home all day Friday glued to BBC1 watching along like they were personal friends of ours. The Royal family has been rebranded.
