WTF! The Week That Was In Bad Celebrity Style.

Comment: From a quick glance, I thought this dress was adorable with its crisp pleats and graceful folds. Then, when I saw the closeup of the bodice,  it went from fierce to faux pas. Its not that I disagree with the whole concept of making underwear appear as outerwear, but do you really need to accentuate the fact that your dress is basically a bra with a skirt attached? And its not even a pretty bra, but the one you buy because the under-wire is strong and it will last forever. Sometimes, underwear needs to stay that way for a reason.

She's Thinking: Lift and separate!

Comment: Yes, we're all tired of hearing about the 13 year old fashion blogging sensation. But since Tavi seems to be on the lips of all the right people these days, isn't it about time someone gets this tween a stylist. She's thirteen! What makes anyone think she can dress herself just because she can recognize a Lagerfield collection from the 90s. This pic is case in point. At a gala, with the likes of Meryl Streep, Tavi's outfit is as old and drab as her haircolor, with the only thing really standing out are her tragically lavender socks.

She's Thinking: I'll get with it, just give me time.

Comment: Again, I hate to hate on my girl Tinsley but I'm starting to think I just may not be a fan of her fashion choices. At this Spring Dance, guests showed up resplendent in gorgeous, floor-sweeping gowns. Each woman looked more regal and elegant than the next until I got to Tinsley who looked more like Floral Bouquet Barbie than a grown up woman at a black tie event. Please, just take those shoes and that bag and send them far, far away.

She's Thinking: But hot pink is the new black! (no, it's not)

Comment: Pogornik is clearly an example of street chic that could be translated all over the globe. The only thing I, maybe as an American, don't understand is why she felt the need to tuck in the front of her top, but nothing else. Ladies room mishap? Perhaps….

She's Thinking: At least I didn't tuck my skirt into my undies, now THAT would be embarrassing!

Comment: Someone didn't send the memo to Jacobs telling her we're in the Aughts now, and the 90s revisited hasn't taken off quite yet. Because the only image that her little plaid, sweet-heart necked number channels for me is Blossom (and maybe Eddie Vedder). All she's missing is floppy hat with a sunflower on it. Her cardigan robs the dress of any sort of potential youthfulness and the gladiator sandals, though cute, do little to usher the ensemble into the 21st century. 

She's Thinking: Just think of me as a 90s revisiting pioneer!

    Ok, this will sound mean, but it has got to be said: I think Tavi’s outfits are mostly horrific. She is kind of cute and obviously knowledgeable about vintage and stuff, which is why it’s so surprising that her personal style is just a hodgepodge of odd (often not even quirky, which is odd but fun) items. Why does she dress like an old lady with Alzheimer’s?
    She could really be milking her 15 minutes of fame, all it would take is some well-put-together ensembles.

  2. Tavi passed through the parted crowd, back to where models showed off the hats. The two syllables of her name filled the room … She looked over the product, spoke with some well-wishers then headed for the door.

    Is Tavi Gevinson really 13 years old? She looks like 50 years older with this ensemble. I have to agree that this outfit is the most badly styled.
