WTF: Karlie Kloss


I love Karlie, I really do. I remember when she first started out — because I am old — and before she sort of toned down her runway walk. Someone — I cannot remember who off the top of my head — compared her to a cobra, and it was an apt comparison. She moved her head from side-to-side in a serpentine fashion and walked very deliberately, and it was mesmerizing. She is still mesmerizing, albeit less snake-like (someone got their hands on her walk, and they were probably right to normalize it a bit). Runway models often feel very interchangeable, intentionally, but every fashion week it is a delight to look up and think, “wow, that girl is good at — oh, it’s Karlie.” She is special.

And there is no better way to prove that she is special than by noting that she is VERY NEARLY making a dress which includes a built-in Glamour Don’t bar seem reasonable.

WTF: Kate Moss


Kate Moss has great legs. She has carte blanche to wear a mini for as long as she can zip one up.

But I don’t care how great your legs are. If you can’t sit down without YOUR ENTIRE BUM coming into contact with the seat of your chair, you are wearing a Standing Up Only dress. Period. Be advised.

Fugs and Fabs: Other Models at the Met


Man, I love the Met. At this point with the Oscars et al, I am SO OVER people and it becomes a bit like homework. But the Met just keeps on giving.

Met Gala Fug or Fab: Karlie Kloss’s Three-Part Outfit by Brandon Maxwell


I was so confused yesterday to see Karlie Kloss in two different things. “Karlie Kloss CHANGED AT THE MET,” I said to Jessica. And then I blinked and was like, “OR IT’S CALLED A COAT.” Sigh. I blame it on the vertigo I had yesterday.

Fugs and Fabs: Models at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner


It will be fun to contrast this to the inevitable “Models at the Met” post that’ll come your way Tuesday.

What the Fug: Tyra Banks


Tyra has been off the radar a bit lately, after welcoming a baby via surrogate and quitting her disastrous daytime show The Fab Life. But lest you think any of this has changed her forever:

Nope. Her outfits still make as little sense as ever. And thank God for that. The world is changing too much and is too freaky these days; I couldn’t stand to lose my constant.

Elle Style Awards Fug Carpet: Bella Hadid


Bella is Gigi Hadid’s sister, and also a model, and her face has — to my mind — never looked better. She sort of looks like Liberty Ross to me? Having kindly doled out my obligatory compliments, however, WE NEED TO TALK?

Elle Style Awards 2016 - Red Carpet Arrivals

If this were on Beyonce, and she was blowing everyone’s mind on stage, I would be into it. If this were on Lady Gaga, and she was sailing onto the red carpet on a trapeze, the fringe occasionally whacking her on the face, I would buy it. If this were a remake of Labyrinth and Tilda Swinton wore this as the Goblin King for a few pivotal moments, I would allow it. If Bella herself were attending a salute to the late television program Fringe, I would give her a hand for her grasp of the literal. But in this instance, it just seems so itchy.
