Designers are finally taking my bow declaration to heart. Bows abound. (Nice work, Gwyneth.) Unfortunately they seem to be in the wrong place. Get those bows away from the neck and back on the butt where they belong!
And since some people have asked, of course I loved Sandra Oh’s lambasted-till-someone-got-educated SAG award gown!
It combined two of my obsessions by adding a flamboyant boob bow to a Korean hanbok. I’ve wanted a hanbok ever since I saw brides in hanboks posing for photos in Seoul. They come in the most amazing color combinations. I saw a lot in pink and turquoise, or red and royal blue. Here are some Korean celebrities wearing hanboks for New Year’s.
Sandra looked like she was having a great time, plus she schooled people on what a hanbok is. She’s fashionable AND educational! Just like a piece of Wendy Brandes Jewelry. Sandra, call me! My Queen Min ring is almost finished and it would be perfect for you.
“… I looked at E!online’s Fashion Police feature for the first time in many months. Jebus! These people are tightly wound. Everything is either too crazy or too boring for them. Or the outfit would be perfect if only she wore different shoes, lost the jacket, had a more moderate turtleneck (really!), did her hair differently, had a tan, etc. Does anything please these people? How perfect do ‘the police’ look themselves? This is the antithesis of my ‘wear what you want’ philosophy about party fashion. You’re going out for one night. It’s not a lifelong commitment. You should feel happy about yourself and comfortable in your outfit. Then you’ll have fun, and that’s what counts. Don’t worry about whether some judgmental lunatic might think your skin is too white or your heel a millimeter too low. Throw on your giant pink puffy coat-thing or a butt bow, have a glass of Champagne and enjoy yourself!”
