What I did today…

okay, technically last week, but I have been busy, so give me a break!! This was a shoot for San Diego Magazine, 25 great dates under 25 dollars. I actually got some fabulous ideas, but you’ll have to buy the magazine to find out what they are! Here’s a few shots…

So long to Solange’s style….

So this is what it looks like when things in Rainbow Land are slow and Rainbow Brite is forced to turn tricks… What in the world was Solange Knowles thinking with this terrible tracksuit? I know, I know, she wants to be her own person and not just Beyonce’s little sister, but that is not excuse to ransack the trash cans at House of Dereon for scraps and call it an outfit. I get the whole “stand out when performing” idea, but there is nothing salvageable here. I am just going to defer to Rhianna here to show her how it’s done…

Lil Kim is a Big Mess

Yikes… where to begin?? Okay, well we all know Lil’ Kim is not one for subtlety, but sweet mary, this look is just criminal! That shirt looks like a dress that was sloppily hacked into what Lil Kim calls a top. There is waaaaay to much cleavage going on as well. Oddly enough, I like the pants. I would pair them with a fitted t-shirt and a shrunken blazer, as illustrated by the always-on-point Kate Mess .
The only place those shoes belong is sliding down a pole, so those too have to go. A fab pair of heels would take her look from house arrest to house of style.

Scarlett Letter

Scarlett Johansson should have a big “H” across her chest for hot mess of an outfit. I never have understood why pretty people try to make themselves look horrific. Ms. Johansson is arguably one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood with one of the most envied bodies, but you would never know from this ill proportioned ensemble. The waist on her shorts is way too high, and cuts her torso in an awful place, and the tucked in shirt is not helping her any. It just makes her look squatty. She needs to untuck her shirt to elongate her torso.
The legs are way too full, they should fit a bit closer to her thighs ( not too tight or you risk looking like Daisy Duke). A closer fit will make her look more chic, and less country. The big dark sandals also cut her leg in a weird place and are much too heavy for this look. I am a huge fan of nude colored sandals as they keep the visual line of your leg going and give the illusion of length.
