Daphne Guinness at a NARS launch party in New York
Comment: Leave it to Daphne Guinness to show up sporting some space age, Bride of Frankenstein look to something like a makeup launch. With the help of Alexander McQueen's scandalously-sized heels, Guinness always seems to manage to outdo herself. With a look like this, it's not difficult to see how, but the question I'm thinking more is, why?
She's Thinking: Fear me.
Comment: There was many a fashion fright at the CMA Awards this year but most were to over the top and outlandish to even comment. Poor Ashley wound up on the chopping block because, well, it's just not cute. Amidst a dazzling array of floor-sweeping gowns at the biggest night in country music, Monroe trotted out with a long-sleeved, too short, yellow velvet dress. This is a prime example of where the 80's fad should be kept in the closet and classic, clean lines should have prevailed. Calvin Klein! STAT!
She's Thinking: Now that I'm here, it may be just a tad too warm in Nashville for velvet.
Comment: Oh Susan! How I love you and hate to add you to this list but as the prototypical stylish mom-type (along with Meryl Streep, of course) it's difficult to let this outfit slide. It's bad enough that the pants and top are too matchy-matchy with the same, itty bitty print. But why choose a top with a hem that not only shows but accentuates the high waist and tapered leg of the pants! Whats next, mom jeans?!!
She's Thinking: Oh yeah, I still got it.
Comment: at first glance, Lisa Edelstein's graphic dress is statement making, but still understandable. What left me confused was her need to include a shaggy, creature-looking wrap to accent the dress, as if it wasn't bold enough on it's own. Is this some sort of homage to Sesame Street's anniversary this week?
She's Thinking: Sunny days, sweeping the clouds away!
Comment: This is the second week in a row I've spotted an offender of one of my personal fashion pet peeves: pairing boots in a heavy, autumnal material with a lightweight, springy dress. If people in L.A. are dying for fall footwear, there are ways to pull it off stylishly by adding something as simple as a blazer, cardigan, or even tights. Otherwise, leave the rest of us freezing but fashionable girls to our cold weather gear and go hit the beach. At least you can.
Comment: You never know when the weather might drop to 60 degrees!
