streetstyle // NYFW disasters

I love Fashion Week and I LOVE street style photos. 
But let's be honest, there is some fashion that really just should not see the light of day let alone be photographed for the whole world to make fun of admire. 
I try to keep this blog full of positivity and pretty pictures, but sometimes a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do ;)
Here's a look at some of the street style that I think was a complete disaster!


I know, I know...everyone worships Jenna Lyons and her work at J.Crew is amazing.
And maybe this is just a bad shot of her, but.....
Did anyone else mistake her for a man at first sight?!


The only times I have seen and actually liked this kind of fringe is in pictures -- of Cher 
and of my 70s inspired high school dance.  There's a reason why that decade is dead and gone.


Is that Nicole Kidman? Surely not. I'm sorry but this is just plain scary.


Let's save those pants for the street performers!


Ok seriously, what. is. this. 
Is she wearing a wet suit?


And this last one I included because I think she is just way too thin. The outfit I'm not that opposed to, but when these kind of images, depicting women who look -- in my opinion -- sick, are promoted as fashionable....well, that's not a message I want to support. At all. And I do acknowledge that some women are naturally thin, but I believe the fashion industry has a responsibility to be extra sensitive to this issue.

And because I want to end on a positive note and I really just want my blog to be full of beautiful glossy images ;) here are some of my absolute favorite shots of NYFW street style






What do you think of my hits and misses?
Do you agree with my picks?
What's your favorite look from Fashion Week so far?

{ps}:
This was all just in good fun so I truly hope I didn't offend anyone with my commentary
But I mean really, did you see what is being worn in the name of high-fashion?!

THANK YOU! I think Jenna Lyons looks awful. So glad someone shares my sentiments. I do think she is a creative genius but she really really did herself no favors with those glasses and the hair.

I totally thought that was a man or a man dressed as Jenna Lyons. The girl with the white hair looks like she's from Cirque du soleil!

LOL your commentary was hilarious. I love the wetsuit comment!

Lisa said...

Mae you are so funny!

The picture comment that really cracks me up is the one on the extreme eye makeup (Nicole Kidman look alike?!). I do ballroom competition and our makeup is extreme...but a couple of the dancers do the overdone winged out eyebrows and liner and even on the dance floor its not a good look!

Okay, that Nicole Kidman one is SCARY. Seriously, is she for real? Ha.
