Well, at least she wore her FORMAL mechanics jumpsuit to hang out with Anna.
She is just messing with our heads now. Her outfits will get worse until one day she says, “Ha! Fooled the lot of you! I can’t design clothes to save my life but I’ve been getting away with it for ten years!”
Oh how I wish the models in the back were more prominent because the giant oversized coat worn by the one on the right is HILARIOUS. She looked like she was being eaten by an envelope.
I noticed them too. The overall group look is that of a business attired slumber party.
I’m just worried that they are a sign of what is to come. Giant wool coats. So long trench and pea coat, make room for these hideous beasts.
On the plus side, at least they look warm!
So is that a serious garment or is this her go-to “fat/bloated” day outfit that she’s passing off as fashion? I suppose it’s better than sweats and a jumbo cardigan, but it’s still not attractive.
Why, why why do people regard her as a serious designer? Have any of her “designs” been flattering or well constructed? I think the Olsen twins are better “designers” than she is.
Her tailored pieces are amazing. This stuff = NO.
I doubt it.
She’s just being practical! She’ll be fixing the leak under the sink in a minute.
Stella McCartney design checklist:
1. Unflattering color? Check.
2. Fabric that drapes like a tarp? Check.
3. Overly large drop waist? Check
4. Drop crotch? Check.
5. Pants that need to be hemmed? Not apparent but probably accomplished.
6. Baggy rear end? Not apparent but probably accomplished.
Girl needs a new schtick.
Yes to all of the above, but you forgot item 7: pocket flaps strategically positioned ABOVE and BELOW the bosoms to instead suggest a ROW of those, as found on your pet of a certain species when she flips on her back to be petted.
And she always looks so smug about it. Wth
I’m just as offended by Anna’s dress. I don’t think you can really credit her for infallibility, either, seeing as how happy she looks to be posing next to that horrendous jumpsuit.
My thoughts, too. Anna is thinking, “Unflattering wrinkled satin … and I STILL look awesome compared to this.” Fug Girls, this might be heresy, but have you considered renaming one of the Fug Madness brackets in (dis)honour of McCartney? Bjork has to stand, obviously, and Charo. What about Cher? At least her clothes fit.
This is the two word song – nOOOOOt gooooood.
Jen, completely agree. Cutesie lollipop flowers? No. As far as Ms. McCartney goes, when you’re as rich and famous as she is, you can wear formal mechanics overalls to whatever event you like. SM’s too ridiculous to even spend my energy and time on any more. It’s not even amusing at this point when I think about what a waste it is.
I like the whimsical flowers on Wintour’s dress, but they don’t work with her severe personality and hair. Looooove Wintour’s coat.
It looks like they’re acting out a musical scene in which Wintour is springing McCartney from jail, with the Pajama Party Girls as Greek chorus.
If. Her. Last. Name. Wasn’t. McCartney. She. Would. Not. Have. A. Fashion. Line.
Paul McCartney cannot sing any more either. There, I said it. Let the games begin.
I enjoyed Paul’s singing on the SNL Christmas Special!
Hush your mouth. I’m going to marry him when I grow up.
I agree with Sandala, his voice definitely is not what it used to be.
“Anymore”? Ha ha.
Yes. But why can’t anyone realize that?
Money trumps everything. That’s why.
Anna’s face says it all: “Yeah, I’m only posing in this photo with her because her dad’s famous.”
You know how some things just grow on you with time? Well, SM’s fashion design is NOT one of them.
She is messing with us. She HAS to be.
Anna’s dress is almost as bad. It looks like an iron-on image of Solargrammed flowers.
AMEN. La Wintour isn’t getting a pass from me on this one, either. What’s with the cheerless flowers on her dress? She looks like she’s been attacked by Murky Dismal.
Oh yeah! I saw a picture of this hilarious atrocity (hilarocity?) on another web site and came straight here for the necropsy. The pieces of fabric worn by the models were also awful.
Also, the jumpsuits that Marine Corp helicopter mechanics wear to work are better fitted than this thing.
This looks just like what my father wore when he was a mechanic, except he actually looked good in his. And yes, if her last name was Smith or Jones, the only person wearing clothes she designed would be her.
I know this is all about Stella McC, but IMO Anna Wintour looks terrible. Her dress doesn’t even fit properly. I don’ think I’ve ever seen her looking this … schlumpy. I am disillusioned and dismayed. Also giggling.
Um…I know this is dangerous…but. I’ma just say it.
I like this one.
Sorry! Feel free to burn me in effigy.
I also kinda… don’t hate it? Like the simplicity of the cut, am not sure about these pockets though.
It’s not the worst thing she’s ever worn, but I don’t think it’s event appropriate. I kind of like it too, and would maybe wear it, if I didn’t anticipate having to go to the bathroom that day, and if it were a bit more tailored, and, well, okay, maybe not.
Her purses surrounded by chain, I love those, and would buy one if I had like a ton of money.
I agree that most of these jumpsuits, when worn by anyone, never look event appropriate.
Yes, the legs are simple and not baggy. The low waist is interesting, and the fabric looks expensive. I love the ring details.
Stella McCartney appears to be waging a one-woman campaign against the female shape.
They’re all horrendous and should know better.
And can we mention the hair on BOTH of them? I am so over A.W.`s boring `signature“ bob. Stella`s hair could use a good cut, it looks stringy and dead. You would think that someone so into fashion (and in her case I use that term loosely)would try and change up the headsuit a little, maybe try a new cut . While I`m on the subject, her lack of makeup offends me too.
Maybe Anna was thinking “oh pish – it’s only Stella’s show. I could wear a sack and still look glamorous next to the crap she trots out. Good opportunity to wear that dress I got as a gift from my best friend with no taste…”
I wonder if she had a greasy red bandana hanging out of the back pocket. And was wearing steel-toed work boots. She might as well have – couldn’t have looked worse than she already does.
I see she’s designing outfits for Kim Jong-Un now.
More to the point, I see that she’s wearing outfits that she designed for Kim Jong-Un now. Which – honey, stop, you are totally not the same size. (Although I do kind of want to see a sitcom where Stella and Lil’ Kim share a New York apartment and their clothes. It would be…something. And Anna Wintour can be the landlord and holy cow I probably should go to sleep now.)
Am I the only one that saw the jumpsuit and instantly thought – Dharma Initiative?
well played, Jessica
I’m going to assume that this is the picture they took before Anna escorted Stella to Fashion Jail, where they will sew her official prisoner number on the jumpsuit before showing her to her cell in solitary confinement! That makes me feel better!
I think Stella McCartney has a thought out principle that she is working from, some kind of anti-fashion idea, possibly (probably) to do with ideas about gender and the dominance of the male gaze in popular culture. I really do think so – because her stuff is so unflattering, and her own look is so scraped bare and androgynous that it has to be intentional.
I don’t like any of it as clothes, i wouldn’t wear it myself – but if I’m right I think she deserves some credit for being consistent and trying to make a point.
Herself is quoted as ‘It was about loosening the stricter side of a woman and adding a little playfulness – bringing two emotions together” so I’m not thinking that the dominance of the male gaze was part of her thought process.
Seriously, her whole mess of stuff is a classic case of The Emperor’s New Clothes. It sucks, but she’s the offspring and darling of the celebrity set, so nobody ever says “these clothes are ill-fitting and ugly, even on the woman who created them.”
my apologies for neglecting to close the italics. Stella’s words end at the close of the quotation marks.
I might as well join Buttercup and admit I don’t hate this – neither Stella nor Anna’s ensembles. Perhaps I’m just relieved Anna isn’t wearing her camel orthopedics today, and just possibly Stella’s jumpsuit is putting me in mind of the famous ones worn by the ABBA girls on the Arrival album cover.
It might redeem me in the eyes of Fug Nation to say I am horrified by the corporate pyjama party in the background.
Anna’s grin says “this is the last straw – I’m quitting Vogue! WOO!”
Hahaha, next time you need a photo for a contest PLEASE use this as a “Caption This!”.
I’ve been waiting for this post! I couldn’t believe she was wearing this – and the other attendees wore equally fug things from her collection!
How bad is it that this is truly the best thing she’s worn in ages? BAD!
I think she should be a #1 seed every March. And this is not the worst thing she’s worn. Oy vey.
Obviously, coat sleeves are too trivial for Dame Anna. And WHAT is happening in the back. Our we going to be swallowed by our coats next year because it’s the “in” thing. I’m terrified.
I love Stella as a person, but she has as much taste as a vegan scone. These are double-breasted, pin-striped COVERALLS, people. COVER. ALLS.
Stella’s been changing the oil in her car again. Use a new filter.
