Golden Globes Fug WTF Fug Fug WTF Carpet: Erin Wasson


Gross.

I’m sorry, but I’m so impatient with something this terrible and embarrassing. You know how it gets obnoxious when Lady Gaga swoops in wearing an ovum and steals the red carpet away from every single other person who was excited to attend the Grammys? That’s how I feel about this ridiculous loincloth. Except I think this is worse. Erin Wasson, I have learned at Fashion Week, is a model and “designer” and former muse of Alexander Wang. And obviously she was pretty sure this was her night — at a Golden Globes afterparty, celebrating things in which she did not star, at a ceremony where she was not a nominee, in an industry for which she barely works — to wander around like a stripper who got in a knife fight in the hosiery section of Macy’s.

I would congratulate her on being, unequivocally, the worst-dressed person of the night, except I’m not sure she’s eligible because technically she isn’t dressed at all. Or to put it in totally hacky terms that I think you will enjoy because you know how much I love a deliberately awful pun: That outfit’s not so much wasson as wassoff. I hope the editors of InStyle slapped a disclaimer on her back while she was in the bar line.

    What an insult to every other attendee! She should be seriously ashamed of herself. (Though clearly if she could “dress” in such a way for a Golden Globes afterparty, the very concept of shame is nonexistent to this dame.)

    It’s an awful “dress”, but after that fugging you gave her, I feel sorry for her. Also, she walked around all night looking like that.

    It’s like she tore up one of those lace body-stockings…. I’m extremely afraid a wardrobe malfunction is in the very near future for her.

    I’m almost afraid to ask, but… in the back view, is she wearing a thong or underwear that covers her butt? That’s the only way this could get worse.

      I was gonna say “this IS the wardrobe malfunction”, but then I got stuck on the words “wardrobe” and “function” because this is an example of neither.

    This is THE WORST. Not only does it look like something Jane would wear to give Tarzan a striptease, but it “shows off” her manchest aka no chest. I really like her jewellery designs but maybe she should pay more attention to CLOTHING. Oh Erin.

    My God. I’m surprised (and concerned!) that no one has yet noted that she looks on the verge of collapse from starvation. Is her emaciated, starved-chicken physique so run of the mill for “models” that it doesn’t even warrant comment? Wow.

      ‘That’s cuz we try not to body shame here. We try really hard not to talk about body shapes and sizes (except where undergarments, support garments and clothes that provide weird body shapes are concerned.)

      For the most part, the readers and commenters try to be mindful that it’s not our place to make comments on other people’s bodies just their clothes. And to rip ‘em to shreds if they’re bad. ;)

    I guess if you’re really proud of your (14-year-old boy’s) body, this is how you’d dress it.

    Still, if this person had come to my door last night, my first impulse would have been to grab all the throws off the couch, give her all the food in my pantry, and sit with her until she looked less miserable.

    Desperately Fug. :(

    It’s like she looked at pictures of Cher in Bob Mackie gowns at the Oscars in the 70s/80s and thought “Cher won an Oscar after wearing clothes such as these, HERE is my ticket to stardom” not realizing that Cher was already a one word, household name at that point and, oh yeah, she had acting chops to back up the clothes ( not to mention an astonishing lack of feathers and, FWIW, whoever designed Wasson’s mosntrosity is no Bob Mackie).

    At some point Erin Wasson decided she was too beautiful for personal grooming, and stopped washing her face and hair. Now I guess she doesn’t feel the need for anything that qualifies as clothing, either. It’s like Christina Aguilera in her “dirty” buttless-chaps phase.

    I hate it when the conversation starts getting nasty. She is no thinner then many other stars who get a pass on it because they package their body up in a more “appropriate ” manner. This girl is obviously proud of her body so more power to her. I don’t think she looks like she’s starving to death, just very thin like many others. Her wardrobe doesn’t warrant making snarky comments about her body.
    As for fashion, I don’t like it but I don’t hate it either. On the positive side she looks confident and cool, but on the negative- it looks ridiculously unpractical to wear.

    I don’t get all the hate. Always thought that a flat chested girl can be more creative with cleavage (for the lack of it) and show more skin because there is no sexual innuendo, just being at ease with your body. Katy Perry would look pornographic with this, while Erin here doesn’t. I do not like the dress, but I see no harm in it. I still remember in the 8Oies when we saw a lot more naked bodies and there was a sense of fierceness and power. This idea that she is being horrible because she is stealing the limelight of all those poor dressed Golden Globe nominees is just very awkward and aggressive to be just a joke. It’s just a flat boob, nothing more.

    I still remember in the 8Oies when we saw a lot more naked bodies and there was a sense of fierceness and power.

    Surely that was more to do with the fact that size 0 hadn’t yet happened. Models then were of practically Amazonian proportions compared to the wan, bony Eastern European teens that limp down the catwalk these days.

      I’m sure plenty of men find her hot. But that’s not really the point here, is it? It should be about clothes. Yes, when the clothes are so tiny the body is really accentuated and starts being a part of an outfit. It should be viewed and critisized as such- for example: does she have the right attitude, does she pull it of, does she seem comfortable body-wise… and not about her body in general. Just like with anybody else. You won’t see people here going on and on about how Melissa Mccarthy is fat when the focus is on the dress.

    Even if she thinks it’s okay to go out in public wearing this sort of monstrosity (the skirt seems to be made of cut-up, textured tights, and technically isn’t even a skirt, but is sewn together through the legs, therefore it is SHREDDED PANTS) she should pick her occasion.

    Honest to goodness, I looked at this and thought “Oh, this is one of those men who model as women, right? (Like Andrej whatshisface). Never occured to me that you would want to accentuate a complete lack of boobs.

    And before anyone says it- before pregnancy, I was about as chesty as this chick. I dressed around it, put focus on my legs rather than chest, and had more male attention than I could handle. (and even with a super short pixie, was *never* mistaken for a boy). So I speak from experience when I say- woman. Cover it up. Androgynous is not your look.

    And oh yeah, the ‘dress’ is horrendous.

      There is nothing wrong with having a smaller chest and less well-endowed women shouldn’t feel like they have to dress around the fact. Tiny breasts can be just as beautiful as a good pair of legs, after all. This particular dress, though, is absolutely tacky and awful, and no one, no matter what body shape, should ever wear anything even remotely similar.

    Girls who were dressed similarly have been sent home from their proms for not being dressed appropriately.
