What’s a better term for “logowhore”?
We prefer to avoid using the word “whore” pejoratively–but, while famewhore can easily be substituted for fameball, there is no other word than “logowhore” that quite neatly conveys the appropriate amount of derision we have for people who bathe themselves in designer logos. More

For a long time at TheGloss we’ve been saying that the “bravest” fashion statement you can make is wearing a gas mask and paisley bikini.
