Worst Dressed

I came across these Golden Globes Worst Outfits Ever photos this morning.  I feel the need to give my own take on a few of these dresses.  First of all, must we always be tasteful?  What's wrong with a little Tackiness?  

Bjork–the shoes, the owl, and a touch of Michael Jackson.   What's not to love here?
Jane and I saw her at Opening Ceremony in NY.  We were awestruck.  

Rinko Kikuchi has great style–I kinda of like this dress.  She's having fun, and it suits her. With global warming there is an over population of jellyfish right now, and it's nice to know we can make cute dresses out of them.


Go Sharon….why not.

Vanessa gets to wear whatever she wants!!!


The hair is better suited for Fiona, but this jacket is intriguing. 


Doesn't this dress look a little Balmain right now?  I like it.

Okay–this is terrible Lara.  Really awful!  But just think of all the laughs this dress has induced over the years–can't be that bad.  Let's hear it for a little bad taste…..

    Rinko’s dress is beautiful. The mainstream just didnt get it.

    you’re such a sweetheart, i love how you try to see the positive in all of the outfits – i also happen to think you’re right!
    very often “worst dressed” is just something that is more complicated than the norm or ahead of it’s time – sometimes eccentric, and sometimes perhaps not that great – i truly feel there is always an inspiration to be had in everything though!
    of above i love courtney love’s and especially rinko’s dresses – lara’s could be ok if the skirt was different and the colours and/or material more unexpected, muted or black i think

    Thanks so much for this post. I have such a hard time looking at blogs like Go Fug Yourself. While fashion criticisms are wildly popular (and sometimes amusing), their alternatives are so stifling and bland; and who are these people anyhow who can tell someone what to wear!?
    I’m really enjoying your blog! Keep it up! 🙂

    I agree with your commentary….and it’s so weird nowadays how celebrities can only be photographed in a dress once and everyone seems to employ stylists. There’s a definite lack of creativity or originality whereas the above celebrities were willing to take a chance, for better or worse. Personally, I thought that Bjork’s look was amazing because she was dressing to suit herself and her personal style, trends be damned.

    you’re so right, bad taste makes a big, important statement in all art, including fashion! i hate when anybody tries to target björk for “dressing badly”. she doesn’t try to look good – she tries to look like herself!

    i think it would be out of character for bjork to dress other than her own style. i can’t imagine her in a normal ‘best dressed’ gown. that would be dreadful.
    courtney was rockin that dior. she looked fab. and it suits her personality, also.
    rinko is fun. she’s japanese so they love kawaii. that chanel is definitely kawaii.
    there’s generally a lack of imagination and ‘style’ celebrities wear in the red carpet nowadays. almost a uniform for that ‘elegant’ style most ‘style critics’ box as acceptable.
    i wonder what would they think of the style of anna piaggi, isabella blow or emmanuele alt?

    Random fact – I went to Bjork’s NYE party here in Iceland, and it was seriously amazing. She’s such a sweetheart!
    Anyway, bad taste is really the humour of fashion, and it is no fun to be without humour. Think of how incredibly boring life would be without those occasional incredibly ugly ensembles to laugh about.
