I think that's a good thing. I would hate to put a lot of time and effort into a girl like that only for those insecurities to come out later. Better to weed them out early.
If you don't want negative attention don't talk about it AT ALL in front of them. Like anything, if a fashionless girl is faced with style and fashion, some may show ignorance instead of intrigue or interest.
See above. Plus, anyone will show ignorance when you try to introduce them to something they've never really cared about before. I find that not having an interest in fashion is the same as not having an interest in music, or sculpture, or food. They'll be clueless at first, and may question if it's really worth getting into, but I think anyone with an open mind will eventually come around.
Best not to try to convince these types of people, I feel like some just aren't cut out for that type of lifestyle. There are countless numbers of girls I love and have little to no fashion sense (including my ex). It's just another trait that some people either have or do not.
I'm all for the democratization of taste, but it is true that some people, if left to their own devices, will make terrible sartorial decisions. But if you introduce them to the basics of fit, if not fabric and design, they'll realize that they look better, and want to explore more. It never hurts to start her off with a gift of some nice simple jeans or shoes. Don't push too hard if she doesn't want to wear heels right away
