Well, it turns out WWD didn’t think I was a hot pussy in my vintage Patrick Kelly dress! I never expected the average person to appreciate that drag-a-licious gown, but being on a “Disaster Area” page next to Susan Sarandon exceeded my wildest hopes and dreams.
(That WAS a very tight dress and not a catsuit, even though it looks like the latter in the photo.)
I think Patrick Kelly would have been proud.
This reminds me that I’ve been meaning to post this photo of Penelope Tree in a slashed-all-over black gown with exposed panties.
A recent issue of Vogue ran a photo of the Penelope Tree dress and bemoaned the fact that no one wears anything daring like this to big events anymore. I laughed out loud when I read that. We all know they’d put a bitch’s ass on the fashion police page for wearing this dress! That’s why no one “goes there.” Susan Sarandon and I are going to get together and discuss this hypocrisy over drinks. Just as soon as she calls me. I’m waiting by the phone right now.
UPDATED TO ADD: Here’s another photo of my outfit to show that it’s really a dress, not a unitard!
I am going to take the big ’80s shoulder pads out before I wear it again. I was going to do it that night but I was in a rush and thought that if I did shoulder-pad surgery while I was in such a hurry, I might hurt the dress. Oh yes, you read that right. I’ll definitely wear this one again.
Hey babe, I’m also proud of you! Beeing on the desaster page is even better than being on the best dressed page. I love you, your outfit and your humour!
Oooh to be in the same category with the likes of Susan Sarandon… I’d be damned proud too.
Princess Poochie says
I have dreams of going to Capote’s Black & White ball. Not that it could ever be recaptured but I’m surprised it hasn’t been attempted. If for some reason it does, I’ll have to find a way to get invited!
OH GOOD ON YOU!
I am totally stoked for you!
That’s a great dress.
Poochie, it has been attempted but there’s no way to recreate that original buzz/excitement.
Wow your like famous now! hee hee
The Maiden Metallurgist says
Oh my! You are so famous, I had no idea. Way to go, I still think the dress is fab. And while most people couldn’t work it, you certainly did.
First, congratulations on making the pages of WWD.
Second, congratulations on trumping EVERYONE there with that SUPER-HOT dress. That editor doesn’t know HOT.
My screen is melting.
Susie Bubble says
Join the gang… I believe I was on WWD’s disaster dress with my Gucci Emilio de la Morena yellow and purple tulle affair… I still stand by my choice and I’d wear it again….
^^I remember both the WWD thing AND your dress, which I thought was fabulous. When Susan S. calls me, I will tell her that you must be invited to our little disaster get-together. Dress code: Outrageous!
Maybe they just thought of the “Mee-ouch” pun and figured it was too good not to use, so they threw you under the bus? Publication people get very possessive of their puns.
Miss Janey says
That dress is HOT! WendyB rocked it. Congrats on your style recognition by the staid establishment types.
Jealous much, bitches???
Wendy, you looked sooo hot in that suit! No matter what, there’s no thing such as bad publicity, you’re big now!!!!
In Yr Fshn/ Young and In Love says
Seriously, you looked super hot in that. I can’t believe that dress would end up on a worst-dressed page! (Dittos on the famous remarks–you’re a stah!)
Susan Sarandon is good company.
I like the look on your face. Were you making eyes at the cameraman? 😉
you look hot!! they sadly don’t know what they’re talking about! although getting on a wwd list is something to be proud of!
yeah, i was going to point out that WWD also had Susie Bubble on their disaster area…
oy vey… I wonder who they put in the best dressed category?
Raven, that’s actually my “sheepish” look.
Selina and Jennine, I never though I’d get on a list with the much-more-daring Susie Bubble, so I’m pretty psyched!
Honestly, this rocks! You are a veritable celebrity now… PS: I think that dress is amazing for a fearless feline such as yourself!
whatevs, you’re totally famous now. You looked hot! Congrats!
Sharon Rose says
This dress is so hot and you were so, so right to wear it!! I’m so pleased you are wearing it again-Wendy, you are a style inspiration! You absolutely rock and WWD don’t know STYLE AT ALL
miss cavendish says
Maybe WWD thought it was a unitard? But never mind, you look like you could easily pull off either unitard or dress. I quite like your dress on you–perhaps WWD was just reaching . . .?
Jill Sherman says
fuck that! you’re one hot sex kitten. (she’s jealous because her ass wouldn’t look that hot squeezed into a leopard-print sausage wrapper.)
gem fatale says
Haha that’s so funny! I think you look fab!
The Clothes Horse says
Wowee! You pull it off.
Hey! At least you got noticed!
The Charming Hedonist says
You SHOULD wear it again because it looks fabulous!
hell yeah wear it again. pft. whats the fun of fashion if you can’t mess around?
what fun! you famous lady, you.
And of course I agree, the dress is megahot.
Suze's Sass says
Oh what do they know. You looked fabulous!
Suze's Sass says
Oh what do they know. You looked fabulous!
Somebody has to look fabulous! You always look great and you are never boring.
you make me so proud!
the iron chic says
You are even smiling in your disaster photo!
You look completely fabulous. John Bates would be very proud of you, he advised me to always wear the ‘unexpected’ regardless of the occasion. Sadly I’m not as gutsy as that, mainly because I have less occasion to be…..but if I could, I’d be wearing my most bonkers frocks out and about.
Congrats! I think you looked great!
Oh congratulation! You’re really famous now. I love your dress! Those girl just has no sense of fashion!
that is one gorgeous dress. you look fab!
Make Do & Mend says
Brilliant – it’s a great number and the only disaster was the photo – which is why it got picked. Poor old susan sharadon now sh edin’t look good at all…
I agree with the posters who say it’s a type of flattery. Personally I wouldn’t feel right if I wasn’t bothering SOMEONE with the way I dress.
Shrimpton Couture says
you look fucking great in that dress. end of story
I love the dress. And love that you wore it. You look great!
Practically Perfect In Every Way says
i always knew you were big time!!! you and susan, i’m so proud of your drag-a-listic write up!!! YOU LOOK HOTTTTTT!
i see by your posts you have been shopping a lot as of late…. does that mean you got all your homework done???
PPIEW, I don’t THINK I’ve been shopping too much! Mostly I’m trying to tempt other people with my finds 😉
you hot. they jealous 😉
Ashe Mischief says
You look like a fierce effin’ superhero. When I first saw it, I was like, “MEOW! Halle Berry ain’t got nothing on you!” and then wished YOU had been at the Met Costume Gala, because you could have shown those prisses how to do a superhero right.
Blue Floppy Hat says
^I’m with Ashe Mischief up there, those pussies would have had nothing on you! (AND you get to be next to Susan Sarandon on that page. Wowieee..)
That dress made me purr! That’s purrfection. You’re purrfect in that dress. That’s because they’re jealous of someone who’s purrtier than they are. Ok-I’ll stop now!
Queen Michelle says
You are hands down the only person I know who can rock animal print! Genius!
-h of candid cool says
i think if anybody could rock it, u so did!! and on the same pg with susan!!
i have a plan for you. u should make a susan necklace, and send her one with a copy of that pg.
