Jen Tile: Straight out of Norwood
Can anyone tell me why some celebrities, who have personal stylists, still somehow manage to look like a cross between Picasso and Jackson Pollock paintings?
If I employ someone to ensure that I always look my best at red carpet events I would really expect them to inform me if they thought I resembled a psychedelic tarred and feathered ostrich.
A glance at an event such as an awards ceremony is always good for a giggle, if only to see just how badly some of these people dress. Being famous is all about being remembered but in many instances celebs are remembered for all the wrong reasons.
For me there are three blunders stars make when dressing:
They wear too much
Some people go a bit overboard with accessories. When did gold plated iPods and Blackberries, sunglasses the size of dinner plates, hats not even deranged people would wear, poodles, Chihuahua’s and belts with two ton buckles become fashionable?
They wear too little
Lady GaGa must have an amazing immune system because with the skimpy outfits she wears I am surprised she has not contracted pneumonia. Yes you may want to show off your new implants, but does that mean you have to wear clothes 5 year olds would struggle to fit into?
They drink or take drugs before getting dressed
Maybe they don’t actually do this, but if I resembled some of the folks in the images alongside I would sooner admit to having a narcotic problem that affects my judgement when dressing than admitting I have less style than Johan Stemmet. Or I would tell people I lost a bet.
