I feel like I could just stop the entry right there, full stop, since the title really sums up the absurdity.
The rest of the list had an excellent mix of the actually well-dressed such as the Duchess of Cambridge, who ALWAYS looks fantastic, and Victoria Beckham next to the above pajamas and some bad looks, like a fairly unflattering Dior gown on Michelle Williams. I provide it for your amusement here:
Now, as some of you may have gathered, I enjoy fashion. I read Vogue and have spent most of the past week and a half glued to Vogue and Style.com to drool over New York and London Fashion Weeks. I probably will ignore my own blog title and post lovingly about the Alexander McQueen show next week, since I ADORED the McQ show this week and am generally obsessed with McQueen.
And I’ve read that this “pajamas as fashion” thing was in the wind, but I ignored it because as shown above, it just looks like she got out of bed and threw on some heels. It looks lazy and extremely unpolished. That said, I guess it’s every college girl’s dream. Roll out of bed, and you look like a Louis Vuitton ad without doing anything at all. Go out, and everyone tells you you look amazing, and then get right into bed. I had a Halloween costume like that once. Couldn’t find a red skirt, so I bought a red nightgown and threw a sweater over the top of it. Laziest costume I’ve ever done. But this is supposedly high fashion, not poor college student dressed like Vaguely Slutty Velma from Scooby Doo.
Miu Miu’s resort collection last year was pajamas-inspired separates. Stella McCartney, who I normally love, did pajama-inspired babydoll dresses spring 2012. Menswear is much, much worse, though, which makes me suspect that our above supposed fashionista is in fact wearing her S.O.’s Louis Vuitton jimjams to a fashion week after-show dinner, which sounds like it might be the sort of thing where you would be expected to look put together.
Minus 1000 points, whoever the hell you are.
I also hate the booties with that half an inch of ankle showing, because once again, sloppy. Either you’re showing some ankle, or you’re not. Pick one and commit to it.
The cut isn’t v. good either, but I can’t really bring myself to commentate all that much because she’s WEARING PAJAMAS TO A DIANE VON FURSTENBERG AFTER-SHOW DINNER. I don’t get it, I don’t want to get it, and I will never spend designer prices on pajamas unless I mysteriously become so wealthy I stop giving a fuck about anything.
