Top Ten Friday

Let me start today’s post off by saying this…I am in NO way a fashionista! I like to think that, as an almost forty year old, I dress a little more trendy than my mom did when she was forty. But that’s it, that’s as far as my fashion sense goes. In fact, the only fashion mantra, if you will, that I live by is this, “just because something is on the runway, or in a magazine ad, or touted by a designer or celebrity, it does not necessarily mean it looks good or is cool to wear.

Hear me on this people!

One of my biggest pet peeves is that celebrities are often more worried about being trend setters than they are about wearing what looks good on them.

So I guess this begs the question, is fugly the new pretty?

In hopes of answering that question, I give you my Top Ten Least Favorite Hollywood Fashion (or lack thereof) Trends.


You’re welcome!

10. Beyonce Knowles

The only thing I have to say about this is that if I was paying a stylist to help dress me and he/she put me in this, it would be immediate grounds for termination. I’m just saying! I have absolutely no interest in bringing back the trends of the 80’s ala Olivia Newton John.

9. The Olsen Twins

There is so much wrong with these girls. For starters, I can’t tell what season it is. They give off every indication that they are freezing, but then wear sandals. My grandma’s crocheted scarf and black witches cape don’t seem to go well together either. And the one, I can’t tell them apart, looks like she took her mom’s good lace table cloth and threw it on as she was running out the door. I’m all about being eclectic, but this is a little overboard in my mind.

8. Shawn White

Shawn. Shawn. Shawn. I have just one thing to say to you. Skin is NOT the new black! Cover it up beefcake!

7. Rhinna

Rhinna is a tough cookie to crack. Very rarely do I like what she is wearing. More often than not it is to edgy for me, but she is young and can often get away with that. My issue is the “zoombas” she is wearing in this picture. Please, please, please tell me these pants won’t be coming back? Every time I think of these pants I picture the Chicago Bears singing the “Superbowl Shuffle.” I don’t know why, but I do.

6. Lindsay Lohan

This train wreck never really wears anything that doesn’t look like she pulled it out of a dumpster, so I was a little surprised to see her in something a little, oh shall we say, bedazzled? I hate this jump suit trend. Sorry if this offends anyone, but I just don’t get it. I have yet to see one that looks good on anyone. And, Lindsey…a bit of advice for you…We all know your are wearing your SCRAM ankle bracelet under those fantastically flowy pants. You’re not hiding anything from us. Might I suggest you own up to your trainwreckishness and be proud that you are getting help, or being forced to get help…either way it’s all good!

5. Lada Gaga (or Lady "are you freaking kidding me" as I like to call her)

I don’t even know where to begin with this woman, so I won’t. The only thing I will ask is when did it become appropriate to wear nothing but your lingere and boyfriends baseball jersey to a game?

4. Kelly Bensimmon

For those of you that don’t know Kelly, she is the one that had the supposed breakdown on the Housewives of New York. Frankly I just think she is all around coo coo! Anyway, back to the outfit. Kelly, my dear, this is a shirt, not a dress! You are in your early 40’s, might I suggest some pants or leggings?

3. Katie Holmes & Daniel Radcliff

There are just so many things wrong with this picture. First, am I the only one that is totally uncomfortable with the height difference between the two? It’s almost like she is standing there with her twelve year old son, and that’s just creepy. Second, is this dress two small for her up top? It’s like she was shoving a couple of watermelons into a plastic case for blueberries. I’m just saying. And lastly, what is up with all the material below? Not a flattering look for her at all. Bless her heart!

2. Katie Holmes

Sorry for all of you Katie Holmes fans out there, I don’t mean to keep bashing on her, but her lack of style for the most part is just so irritating. I could come up with a hundred reasons why I don’t like her style. But I think this outfit says it all. Didn’t she learn anything from the Jessica Simpson high waist pants fiasco? They don’t look good on anyone! Please Katie, don’t include these pants in your fashion line, I beg you!

And my number one least favorite Hollywood Fashion Trend...I think this celebrity sums it up well...

1. Emmy Rossum

All I can say about this outfit is, “thank God Emmy! It’s got to be a tremendous relief for you when your dance class and your need for attention intersect! You’re such a little multi tasker!

Stay classy people! Stay classy!


  1. What got me was when Kelly asked Jill if "she ever dressed sexy" implying that she never did. What in the hell is wearing a piece of toilet paper for a dress (yup, just quoted Bethenny) and not owning up to the fact that you're "dressing sexy" (even if I find the woman horsey and leather-skinned).

  2. OK, this was a fun post....most enjoyed it. I agree with the Lindsay Lohan comment...she should just own up to her bad behavior. She should get the Bedazzler out and add some bling to her ankle bracelet! She could start a whole new trend in criminal style.

  3. They all look pretty bad but Katie and that dress ... definitely too small up top and aren't gowns usually "floor-length"? She should know better.

  4. Katie Holmes dress is terrible. Actually they all are. I don't understand how these people have so much money, but dress so terrible. My Old Navy T-shirts and jeans might now be fabulous, but they will definitley keep me off any worst-dressed lists.

  5. You would think with all of the money they pay out to stylists these people would look better but they don't. I am with you about fashion leaning more towards statement than looking good.

    P.S. Scraps is right, Kelly is Horsey and leathery. She also needs to start covering up some of that shoe leather she calls skin.

  6. I'm clearly WAY late on this post. However, it must be said....I enjoyed it thoroughly!!

    My literal reaction upon seeing the pic of katie holmes and DAniel Radcliffe was "OH DEAR." That dress was not just too small, it was WAY TOO DAMN SMALL. That was embarassing, the way her ta tas were bulging out everywhere.

    No words for Lady Gaga, besides "You disgust me."

    Thanks for the rundown and the laugh.
