Yesterday saw the Chanel Haute Couture show at the Grand Palais–drawing the expected crowd of editors/fashion people, attractive young entertainers, nebulously relevant It Girls, and very rich people with nothing better to do.
But! It also attracted some impressively bad outfits!
See Rihanna and her eyeliner up there smiling beside Karl Lagerfeld? You should see the rest:
Remember in the late ’90s when everyone wore dusters? Seriously. Fucking dusters. For those of you who were born after ’94, they were basically knit cardigans that hugged the body like a trench and went all the way down to the ankles. They were largely hideous and unflattering. They could be procured at any of your favorite mall stores: Wet Seal, Charlotte Russe (which we still don’t know how to pronounce), Forever 21, what have you.
So, Rihanna wore a cream one to Chanel, with a shitload of Chanel accessories and a pile of pearls, barely concealing that chest tattoo she got for her grandmother.
But since we haven’t done a face-off in a while, we’d like to offer up a counterpoint in Kristen Stewart:
…Who wore the world’s shortest shorts, a white double breasted tweet jacket with molded shoulders and fingerless leather clothes. While we do like the slicked back hair and makeup, the outfit feels like Karl Lagerfeld dressed her himself. Which is probably why she looks so uncomfortable?
Now we must vote!
