Every now and then one of our favorite style stars will make a sartorial decision we can’t help but regret on their behalf. Sometimes its a bad dress, an unsightly ‘do, or garish makeup — but today’s offender are these studded, strappy, and pointy-toed flats that we spotted in the front row of Monday’s Chloe show. Can you guess who they belong to?
We give Taylor Momsen a hard time here on Styleite, but the truth is: she’s not alone. Bare midriffs, crotch-revealing skirts, overly exposed cleavage — there are no shortage of sartorial offenses to which young celebrities fall victim when climbing the golden ladder of fame.
Okay, so diagnosing Snooki with Styleitis is a little redundant; the girl wears her hair in something called a “pouf” and believes a trucker hat is the ultimate accessory. But this photo of Snooki prancing around the Jersey Shore this past weekend reached new heights in sartorial offensiveness.
On the most somber of occasions, normally what we like to do is let the way we dress reflect the sadness or seriousness of what’s going on around us. But apparently if you’re royalty, that rule does not apply.
While we’ll leave criticism of her politicking to our friends at Mediaite, Secy. of State Hillary Clinton‘s style has oft been in the sights of fashion writers. Everyone from Anna Wintour, who publicly advised then-Sen. Clinton on what to wear during the 2008 presidential campaign, to the good people at About.com has made some kind of comment on what she’s worn. Today, Styleite joins this group.
Rihanna showed up to an after party for her LA concert sporting her much spoken about red coif, and donning what appears to be a former Barnum & Bailey circus costume. While we’re normally huge fans of the jumpsuit, the multicolored polka dot pattern on this one-shouldered garb makes it look cheap and, for lack of a better word, silly.
Just when we were beginning to love Megan Fox, she just had to show up to VH1′s Do Something Awards in this brownish-orange, oddly patterned Azzedine Alaïa dress. The cut is less than complimentary, even on a body as perfect at Megan’s. And that accessory we thought she had done away with — the spray tan — seems to be back.
We appreciate the art of athletics just as much as our friends over at Sportsgrid. [Ed Note: Did you see our World Cup coverage?] But just in case we ever forget how much we love a good game, there’s are always the ESPY awards to provide us with a solid red carpet competition.
Mary-Kate Olsen was recently spotted arriving at LAX an oversized sweater, polka dot skirt, leopard print scarf, and some strange black, mesh-cloth something. (We’re not positive whether it’s a skirt or pants). Our opinion is best summed up in one word: Styleitis.
What goes up must come down. It’s a simple law of gravity. So, with one normally poorly styled teen star finally wearing something worth praise, another young celebrity falls short. In this case very, very short.
There was a brief moment where Christina Aguilera was channelling Marilyn Monroe. Things got a little better. She opted for Hollywood Glam over her usual Trashy Pop look. But with the release of her new album, it seems that things have gone back to bad. Very, very bad. Christina’s got Styleitis.
The stars came out Monday night in Manhattan for the New York premiere of Rossini’s Armida at The Metropolitan Opera House, sponsored by Yves Saint Laurent. Look of the night? Pants. Maggie Gyllenhall, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Chloe Sevigny all sported jumpsuits.
Despite having a reputation for being buttoned-up, old-school, and relatively clean-cut, England has been voted the worst dressed nation in Europe.
On Friday, Styleite’s founder, Dan Abrams, went on the Rachael Ray Show to talk about some of his least favorite trends that he sees women sporting. And while Abrams never claimed to be a fashion expert, he told the talk show host that Uggs, oversized sweaters, large sunglasses, and the Katie Holmes’ inspired “Cleopatra hair-cut” were among his least favorite female trends. But like we said, fashion isn’t just a one-way street, so in response we’ve put together our own little list of fashion statements guys should steer clear of.
