Over the past week, the world has seen a whole lot of disappointing fashion. From Michelle Williams‘ ridiculously high slit to the sadness that was the Grammy’s red carpet, it just hasn’t bee the sexiest week in fashion. But my least favorite looks came from Emma Stone for the Berlin International Film Festival and Kim Kardashian‘s for the Topshop Topman LA opening party. Both wore black, both had obnoxious structure elements, both were bad. Like…really, really bad.
Lo and behold:
Just like cut outs, it appears that another horribly bad fashion decision has become contagious and involves Kim Kardashian. This time, it’s pants under dresses. While I’m pretty sure it’s an excusable choice when you are younger than, oh, 11 or so years old, it’s definitely not something you should wear out as an adult — and definitely not appropriate to wear to something remotely fancy. So, naturally, Kim decided it was a good idea. Plus, she added copious amounts of swishy fringe and a sheer stenciled top that only Jennifer Lopez could be proud of.
As for Emma’s dress: it’s not like it doesn’t fit her body or was an inherently terrible idea. But my god, those sleeves remind me of turkey legs from those Medieval Times jousting shows you can go to while on vacation. I get that leg-o’-mutton sleeves was once a thing, but it shouldn’t have been, and it cannot be now — particularly in combination with a wide fishnet shoulder look. C’mon now, Stone, you know better than that! I expect the ugliest dress looks from any Kardashian alive; I tend to think of Emma Stone as an unobtrusively stylish celebrity who doesn’t offend anybody with her red carpet decisions. I’m not angry, Emma, I’m just disappointed.
That said, Kim’s many past transgressions cannot be ignored, so let’s just all settle on the decision that she loses because she is Kim Kardashian and that is that. Sound good? Okay, cool.
Bonus: Kris Jenner looked stupid, too.
