A couple of interesting events occurred in the fashion world this last week. Most of you likely missed these stories as you have better things to do than read reports surrounding the haughty nature of fashion icons and the incriminations of invited guests who dress for a party. However, I don’t have better things to do so let me share.
The Annual Pomp at Anna Wintour’s Met Gala was held last Monday and it’s still the talk of the town. This year the parade on the red carpet was an outstanding creative explosion of one-of-a-kind and
over-the-top creations that deserves all of the attention it is getting. However, all of that attention was not good as some critics of the show considered the costumes disrespectful at best and others found them downright heretical at its worst. The theme this year is Heavenly Bodies; Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. As per usual all attendees were encouraged to dress with the theme of the show in mind. Here are a few of my favorites that stayed true to the tenor of the night.
Also in this weeks news; Karl Lagerfeld is still acting out his fantasy of living in a world where everyone is 100 pounds and being physically inappropriately handled is part of a model’s job. Karl, a devote misogynist and man who lies about his age, unapologetically offers his opinions regarding the #metoo movement. “If you don’t want your pants pulled down don’t become a model!” He continued, “Join a nunnery, there will always be a place for you in a convent.” What provoked these comments was his support of a stylist and friend who was accused of pulling down a model’s pants without consent.
This was not the first time that Karl opened his mouth and let out a cornucopia of inner demons.
In the past he has referred to Adele as fat and said this about Pippa Middleton, “ I don’t like her face. She should only show her back.” Unfortunately, these are not the only scorching comments made from a grown man who wants to marry his cat but thinks same sex marriage should not be a thing. In addition he believes curvy women have no business in fashion.
And finally there is the upcoming royal wedding which we are all too aware of because it pops up on every media site every minute of every day. I wish the royal couple well, I really do. But I need them to get married and live happily ever after so that my news feed can resume it’s coverage of other sorted mind-numbing events.
