A critical (to put it nicely) women's celeb fashion blog

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Another online fashion blog (women's this time), and decidedly less flattering than the Sartorialist:

Yawn. One of my pet peeves is people who criticize something without suggesting improvements. It takes no special talent to be negative rather than offering constructive criticism. It's much harder to do what Sartorialist is trying to do and that is to provide examples of good, interesting, and usually unique fashion statements. My hat's off to The Sartorialist.

Please. It can be gratingly annoying at times, but when they are (occasionally) witty, it's very funny. Don't take it so seriously.

It actually does require a certain talent to criticize.

The subjects are too easy.

I like some of his pictures, but I often feel he's stretching the truth with his commentary. Some of the people in his pictures are wearing hideous combinations, yet he tries to elevate it to fashion with words.

The best pictures are obviously from the Borrelli, Kiton, and DV boutiques! And some of the girls, despite the weird things they're often wearing!

Exactly. Pick (generally) attractive people who made some very bad mistakes and mock them. Sorry, no skill in that. Then again, it highlights that celebrities should pay less attention to their stylists and make an effort to develop their own style.

His Thom Browne fixation makes no sense to me.

Although without such "blogs" the celebrities would be able to revel in their mediocrity.

One problem with some celebrities is their inability to impart a graceful, elegant image. Clothing cannot correct such deficiencies.
