Why. WHY. Why are people trying to make pants the enemy?

They don’t need to start at your underwire. They don’t need to end at the top of your ankle bone. They don’t need to billow at the pelvis like they’re being inflated for an 80-day circumnavigation of the globe, unless you are a bowling-ball smuggler. Do not give pants a bad name OR PEOPLE WILL STOP WEARING THEM. And look where that got Taylor Momsen: A Fug Madness win and a public pubis. THINK OF THE CHILDREN.

    That whole outfit is insane. She’s dangerously close to a nip slip on top, and the dimensions of those pants are spectacularly wrong and terrible.

  2. mary lou bethune

    She’s so pretty; think how she would look in , say, a pretty dress!

    • Lindy

      Yes, she is pretty! Before I looked at the outfit, I saw her face and thought, “Pretty!” Then, I saw the outfit…

  3. Francesca

    Ooooh, gorgeous girl. Too bad her legs are wrapped in Charlotte’s Web of Destruction.

  4. Gigi

    I think I will now call her Tika Sump Pump, cuz sister be floodin’.

  5. zah

    turn the pants into a skirt, maybe knee length-ish, and i’m all in.

  6. Rowynn

    Thanks for reminding me how much I miss One Life To Live. :-(
    Oh yeah, and the pants ARE terrible.

    Why are people trying to make pants the enemy?

    Because, in a flash, they can become an all-encompassing, dangerous force.

      Anne B. I adore anyone who gets Shakespeare’s dirty jokes, and anyone who can guide me to hilarious videos. Double ‘dorbs to you!

      So, do these folks all get together before and practice? And where did they find the matching lame’ pants? So many questions.

    She looks cute! And fresh! If her pants were a normal fit and normal length or without a pattern, she’d just look normal and that is bland. There’s such a weird obsession with always having to dress to look thin, long-legged, etc. I like it when people play with proportions and funk it up a bit. Even some “billowing” in the pelvis area.

    Who is this person?

    • Heather

      An actress most recently on Gossip GIrl. She was on soaps for a while.

    at least these aren’t those horrible shoe-eating-disaster pants we’ve seen here in last time so often…

  11. mochaleet

    I think it’s cute, funky and different. Reminds me of designer Willi Smith’s windowpane plaid from the 1980s. I’m with Anla, she’s trying out the unexpected. I don’t know who this person is however.

  12. Shiitake

    Hitch those pants any higher and she’ll look like Ed Grimley.

  13. lisas

    I love it all except for the shoe colour. I’m sorry, I’ll go sit in a corner and think about what I’ve done. btw this gal is incredibly gorgeous and I love her hair.

  14. vandalfan

    Add suspenders and she’s Urkel.

    Why do I not hate this? In theory, I should hate this. I think I might be watching too much RuPaul’s Drag Race, if such a thing is possible (it’s not actually possible). If Dida Ritz had stomped the runway with this outfit and that hair, she might have stuck around longer.

    Sorry, I am DEEP into Drag Race this year. It’s occupying all my head space.

  16. Softwear

    Uh, he he, the pants are NOT the problem here. I like the pants. The dimensions reflect a newer trend, yes, but they aren’t clownish. They have some restraint. And she is working them. The top is a big, big problem, not least because it doesn’t match the pants.

  17. Samuel Joesph Donovan

    I love those pants, but then I am a fashion student and hence know legitimately nothing about real clothes.

    A friend of mine wrote a bday song for another friend who has a penchant for removing his pants at bars:

    We can dance if we want to.
    We can leave our pants behind.
    Cause your friends hate pants, and if they wear pants, well they are no friends of mine.
    We can dance, we can dance. Everybody take off your pants….

    This is the song in my head every time I see a PANTS! post.
