In case you missed it, here’s what was on the blog this week.
- Monday, Feb. 18: A tribute to my Ossie-Clark-loving friend Al Radley, who died at 94 on Valentine’s Day.
- Tuesday, Feb. 19: Chanel and Fendi designer Karl Lagerfeld died at age 85.
- Wednesday, Feb. 20: I am fucking tired of people who are absurdly rich or somewhat famous feeling entitled to free shit from the rest of us.
- Thursday, Feb. 21: An Ossie Clark dress in 2005, 2011, and 2019. Talk about slow fashion! The dress was already over 40 years old when I got it!
- Friday, Feb. 22: That time I met Konstantin from Killing Eve.
- Saturday, Feb. 23: Speaking of Killing Eve, wasn’t that pink tulle dress spectacular?
The Oscars are tonight, so you can expect my prestigious Best Dressed/Wear What You Want award to be handed out along with those less exciting ones like “Best Picture.” No doubt I’ll be tweeting up a storm, so you can follow that here. And if you haven’t watched this week’s YouTube video, it’s about the entitlement some celebrities have come to feel about red-carpet fashion, so it’s timely!
I would like to hear people like Bebe Rexha and Megan Mullally articulate why it’s an insult if they have to buy their own awards-show dresses. I’ve bought all my special-occasion dresses without ever feeling the need to alert the media to any form of discrimination against me, and probably you readers have done so too. Look, I save my real anger for destructive, world-altering, entitled, rich bastards such as Jeff Bezos, but I feel like it’s time for everyone else to start being a little grateful for freebies instead of demanding them.
