Do you want to jump straight to Emily Ratajkowski vs Bebe Rexha?


I truly believe that Janina has made it this far fully on the strength (or weakness?) of THIS:

'Good Day New York' TV show, USA - 16 Jul 2018

Those hose are so perplexing! They’re like what the girls wear at Hooters! This was at Good Morning America! I just need to know the thought process here!

This was also not great:

Janina Gavankar at Build Series

Nor was this:

InStyle and Warner Bros Golden Globes After Party, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 06 Jan 2019

And this, dear friends, is PANTS:

Lionsgate hosts a screening of 'Blindspotting', New York, USA - 16 Jul 2018

But Janina is an 11 seed and she is up against a perhaps immovable force in the format of the Sisters Hadid, whose performance in the Pantsular Catsuit Arena was spectacular. This is…unforgettable:

Harper's BAZAAR celebrates fifth ICONS by Carine Roitfeld,  Spring Summer 2019, New York Fashion Week, USA - 07 Sep 2018

That is not technically even clothing, to my mind? It’s….underpinnings, and it’s also too much information. Ditto this, on the Too Much Information tip:

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, Pink Carpet Arrivals, After Party, New York, USA - 08 Nov 2018

I think this is just a body-stocking and I hope you never need to pee in it, because it would be IMPOSSIBLE! There is a masters thesis somewhere waiting to be written about how f’ed up it is that female celebrities, with regularity, don clothing that makes it impossible for them to perform basic biological functions, as if they are not human creatures at all.

This DOES feel alien, though:

Gigi Hadid out and about, New York Fashion Week, USA - 12 Sep 2018

And THIS also feels like what someone would wear if she landed on earth from an alien planet and couldn’t QUITE figure out what shorts were:

Louis Vuitton show - Paris Fashion Week Men's

There are also, of course, shirts that don’t totally fulfill the dictionary definition:

Bella Hadid out and about, Los Angeles, USA - 13 Mar 2018

There was also this eye-searing experience:

Moschino x H&M Desert Party, Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Palm Springs, USA - 14 Apr 2018

And THIS nightmare:

Gigi Hadid Wears Orange Pantsuit In New York

Honestly, the Hadids’ archive is vast and wide; this is Gigi’s, and this is Bella’s. I invite you to examine them. The question remains: Does Janina have enough to take them down?

Amusingly, Bebe Rexha wore a piece that looks very similar to one that we just saw!

Moschino x H&M show, Arrivals, New York, USA - 24 Oct 2018

Jeremy Scott must be so proud. Emily should ALSO be proud, because she sported one of my least favorite outfits of the entire year:

GQ Australia Men of the Year awards in Sydney - 14 Nov 2018

I cannot even put that in a Compliment Sandwich. I HATE it; it’s like she realized in the middle of putting on her turtleneck that, WHOOPS!!!! No one can see her abs in it!! I mean, I get her — her abs are amazing — but give me a break.

In fact, almost all of Emily’s looks this year that I disliked involved Aggressive Flashing of Ye Olde Abbbs:

The World Premiere of I Feel Pretty


Green Carpet Fashion Awards Italia, Spring Summer 2019, Milan Fashion Week, Italy - 23 Sep 2018


Marc Jacobs show, Arrivals, Spring Summer 2019, New York Fashion Week, USA - 12 Sep 2018


Vogue Paris Foundation Gala, Haute Couture Fashion Week, Paris, France - 03 Jul 2018


YES, they’re FANTASTIC. Congratulations!!!!! Maybe think about a work-out video? (Or whatever people release now. An app? Yes, an app.)

Oh, wait, there was also this, which was perhaps off-topic, but also not great:

Emily Ratajkowski at Elle Luxury Party

Bebe Rexha, on the other hand, demonstrated a real depth of commitment to wearing EVERYTHING, so much so that I know at least one of you suffers from Bebe Rexha Face Blindness. Like this is very Alexis Carrington Colby Attends a Charity Gala:

The 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards Arrivals

This, on the other hand, is a bathrobe:

2018 Z100's Jingle Ball

This is ALSO a bathrobe, albeit a more formal one:

Spotify presents the Best New Artist 2019 Party, Arrivals, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, USA - 07 Feb 2019

This is….not quite a bathrobe, but more like one of those robes boxers wear for their big matches. So, I guess…a robe-robe:

25th MTV Europe Music Awards in Bilbao

But this is a fancy loincloth!

iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards, Arrivals, Toronto, Canada - 26 Aug 2018

And this is an exploration of the essence of The Sleeve:

MTV Video Music Awards, Arrivals, New York, USA - 20 Aug 2018

This appears to be a Kim Kardashian costume:

Teen Choice Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 12 Aug 2018

This is just, um, a pile of tinsel with a belt?

Free Radio Live, Birmingham, UK - 24 Nov 2018

And this is HILARIOUS:

'Sunday Brunch' TV show, London, UK - 25 Nov 2018

In case you need more intel — and more intel is out there! — here are Emily’s archives, and here are Bebe’s.
