Brit Awards WTF: Karlie Kloss in Alexander McQueen


I don’t understand what is happening. This is LACY LUNACY:

The Universal Music BRITs Party Hosted by Soho House

It’s like the linen pants you drunkenly bought from Coldwater Creek one night after two bottles of wine, plus one of Zoe Hart’s old bralettes, and a lace tablecloth that was tragically killed in a Project Runway unconventional materials competition.

    THIS IS AMAZING! On so many levels…and none of them is any good. Gracious!

    The top part of that dress reminds me of an incident in my youth when I was making out with my boyfriend, now husband, and my parents got home unexpectedly. I rushed to the door to open it, while putting my shirt back on (do not judge). I was wearing a racer back top, and I put it on backwards. Let’s just say I had to take an extra minute and a half to turn it around, as my boobs were hanging out on both sides of the strap. My parents wisely pretended they did not notice how long it took me to open the door

      So do we think that necklace (???) is meant to be worn like that, or did Ms. Kloss have a similar experience to Roxana? Because I cannot for the life of me figure out how she’s going to take it off.

    Lacy Lunacy is my roller derby name.

    The only good thing about this post is the Zoe Hart reference (actually all the writing) the rest is unspeakably bad.

    Take a piece of paper, cut a small hole in it, and cover everything but her clutch. See? All better.

        They might have PUFFY PAINT?!?!

          HA!!! My co-worker and I were just reminiscing about puffy paint today! The guys had no idea what we were talking about, but it brought back some fun homemade fashion memories. Le sigh…

    I literally leapt away from my computer when I scrolled past her waist. I wasn’t prepared.

    If nothing else, Alexander McQueen has range: from this fugtastic nuttiness to the sublime coats suitable for royal events.

    Is this a return of the dreaded pantalunacy? Yikes.

    If it were at LEAST a dress?

    ? do you think it’s possible that Karlie Kloss removed this from what was another piece (the gown part!) meant to be underneath this lace overlay?

    I honestly don’t know what offends me most, the top (or lack thereof), the pants, or the fact that she is wearing matching lacy sneakers. This outfit alone is going to get Ms Kloss into the quarter finals of Fug Madness.

    She looks like George Costanza’s vision of a naughty night nurse. That bag is a sponge, ready to give him a sponge bath. (No offense to the profession. My nearest and dearest are nurses.)

    It’s a necklace! – It’s a harness! – YOU’RE BOTH RIGHT!

    I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but if that lacy thing was the back of a dress and she just had it on backward or something, I would love it.

    Accessorize it with Hot Neighbor Wade and it will look a LOT better.

    Also, the “naughty nurse” stripper routine will work much better with a train-free negligee. You’ve got to look somewhat believably like an actual nurse until the scrubs come off.

    After the day I’ve had I needed a laugh. Thanks for that Karlie. Now go change your clothes.

    I think Prince would probably like the top…….for himself.

    I do love the clutch and would like a blouse made of the same fabric as the pants. Yep, I took one for the Nation and looked at a close up of the outfit! I can assure you the pants’ fabric has a great texture–for a blouse, not pants–and I believe she is one of those rare creatures whose belly button seems to be a combination innie/outie! My sisters has one, too. The funny belly button, not the pants.

    I think I should just halt this comment wagon now.

    I’ve been a devoted GFY reader for years, and I think I can say this is up there as one of the ugliest f-ing things I’ve ever seen anybody wear, like, ever.

  28. Erika

    I like this outfit for two reasons: it genuinely made me laugh, and she looks super stoked to be wearing it. Which is awesome, because if I had to wear this outfit I’d be frowning. A lot.

    Takes me back to 10th grade when cheap lace figured prominently in my thrift store wardrobe. When Doves Cryyyyy…

    It’s this month’s choice from Fabletics.

    THIS is the epitome of ..how did the Fug Girls put it the other day? Putting a bunch of design ideas into a salad shooter.

    There is some interesting stuff happening there, but it’s literally just a heap of stuff laying on the floor of someone’s atelier that crawled up onto a mannequin of its own volition in an attempt to be FREE.

    I have no kind words for the pants or the shoes.

    •  Fifie

      I think that the pants and shoes are at least comfortable. They have that much going for them.

      • laucie

        Shoes look like embellished versions of the white shoes senior gentlemen wear in retirement communities.

    I can say with some degree of certainty that that is one of the most hideous things I’ve ever seen.

  33.  ARSENiA

    I don’t get this. She is a perfect, 10 million feet tall Amazon. And somehow, this makes her look like a frumpy midget. Facepalm.

    I just recently went through Alexander McQueen for s/s 2016 & f/w 2016, so this does not surprise me. Although, I did not see this one coming or going OR hopefully gone!

    Are those Annie’s Side Kicks from Father of the Bride?

  36. Tamarin

    I legitimately thought she was wearing a top from Free People over pants. I did not expect to see that it was McQueen…

    I bet Kate Middleton is disappointed that Karlie got this first.

  38.  Tiffany

    I am ashamed to admit this…but I kind of like the top part! The pants and ruffles below are so terrible, but the top really fits her so well. It isn’t bunching, it isn’t puckering, it just fits like a glove. I like the different way the lace pieces crisscross each other. But I may be overworked and delusional about now, so…. ;)

    If She had worn a skirt instead of pants with this ensemble. We would have barely taken notice. The detailing of the hook and eyes is quite beautiful.

    C’mon people. Don’t be so harsh. Alexander McQueen is breaking new ground. The backwards lace partial bustle is going to be all the rage – simply everyone will be wearing them over their running togs in Spring 2017. Don’t forget you saw it here first!

    The top could be very beautiful on its own, even without a lining. (Completely unfriendly to any woman who wasn’t modestly endowed, though.) The rest is just confusing.

    Her ugly pants have ugly sleeves made of lace ascots?!? WHAT.

    This is so 1990s that nobody even thought to do it in the 1990s. Pants with skirt? Noooo, pantskirt! Layered necklace? Hell, string it under her arms. It’s so gonzo I’m not even mad.

    Well, I might be mad if I think about it later today. But for now, just dayum.

      OMG, I totally misssed the sneakers. And the smirk! This is inspired madness.
