10 Times Stars' Red Carpet Dresses Looked Like Inanimate Objects

Disclaimer: I'm not one to police other people's fashion choices, and in most of the following examples, I still think the stars look amazing... just somewhat like an inanimate object. See the above example: Kim's dressed like a sofa at the 2013 Met Gala in Riccardo Tischi for Givenchy.

1.

Rihanna's Guo Pei dress that resembled a heavy rug, or maybe an egg yolk, depending on who you talk to.

2.

Solange in Giles at the 2015 Met Gala, looking like a cross between a disco ball and a stingray.

3.

Star of this post Rihanna looked like a beautiful pink feather duster in Giambattista Valli Couture at the 2015 Grammy's. Only she could pull off this dress, but I still think she looks more like a duster or maybe a nice swath of cotton candy.

4.

Lupita Nyong'O's Prada dress at the 2014 Met Gala looked like something in between a fishing net and a Tiffany Chandelier. Which do you think is closer?

5.

Joy Villa looking like safety fencing at the 2015 Grammy's, dressed in Andre Soriano.

6.

Katy Perry looked like sheet music, or a music box ballerina in Valentino at the 2014 Grammy's.

7.

Another cotton candy featherduster is Lena Dunham in Marc Bouwer at the 2014 Emmy's.

8.

Kylie Minogue looking like a Glad trash bag at the 2014 Brit Awards, wearing William Wilde

9.

Jennifer Lopez looking like seaweed in her iconic Versace dress at the 2000 Grammy's

10.

Finally we have Lady Gaga looking like tangled tube string lights in Giorgio Armani Prive at the 2010 Grammy's. I excluded her meat dress from this list because it's a little too literal.

The only I can think while look at Rihanna's dress is that I hope she didn't have to go to the bathroom at any point that night
@JordanNash I can't stop laughing at your comment! I don't think any stalls would fit Rhi's dress unless they have VVVIP restrooms for celebs.
The only person I think looks truly bad here is Lena Dunham! That dress PLUS the platinum blonde hair? Ew. And yet, for some strange reason, I totally have a soft spot for Rihanna's poofy pink layer-cake/feather duster dress...
Haha @stargaze she must have had a special "toilet helper" body guard. She could not have done that on her own!
I'm not really sure who Joy Villa is, but I'm totally feeling her level of weird. That's a pretty freaky dress that takes a WHOLE lot of confidence and eclectic taste to pull off!

세계가 주목하는 한국인 디자이너 브랜드
Editor Comment 차분하지만 또렷한 힘을 가진. 오래전부터 한국인은 그랬다. 은근한 끈기로 세계 무대에서도 차근차근 족적을 남겨왔다. 패션 분야도 예외는 아닐 테다. 1980년대에 일본의 재패니즈 아방가르드가 파리에서 각광받았다면, 2010년대에는 파리뿐 아니라 런던부터 뉴욕, 밀라노까지 전 세계 패션 도시에 한국인 디자이너들이 그들만의 찬란한 자국을 남기기 시작했다. 민족주의가 배제되고 국가라는 카테고리가 허물어지면서 하나의 가치가 통용되는 지금, 한국인 디자이너들은 단순히 ‘K’를 외치는 게 아니다. 세계가 원하는 그 무엇을 내놓았다. 이 너른 세상에 고민과 창조의 흔적이 선연히 베인 자신들의 디자인을 말이다. 현재 패션계에서 입을 모아 이야기하는 혁신과 지속 가능성 그리고 브랜드 서사의 확장과 같은 비전을 공유하는 6명의 한국인 디자이너와 그들이 전개하는 5개 브랜드를 소개해봤다. 지금, 바다 건너에서 빛을 받아 더없이 찬연한 이들을 주목해보자. 굼허(GOOMHEO) 허금연 굼허(GOOMHEO). 유래가 짐작되지 않는 이 단어는 런던에서 활동하는 한국인 디자이너 허금연의 이름을 딴 남성복 브랜드 이름이다. 그녀는 센트럴 세인트 마틴 학사와 석사 프레스 쇼에서 모두 ‘L'Oréal Professionel Young Talent Award’를 받으며, 유례없는 두 번의 우승을 거머쥐었다. 2018년으로 거슬러 올라가 그녀는 문화, 예술적으로 새로운 흐름을 만들어내는 후보들이 이름을 올리는 <데이즈드 100>에 선정되기도. 지금 유럽이, 그리고 전 세계가 주목하고 있는 디자이너 허금연. 최근 런던패션위크에서 패션 이스트(Fashion East)를 통해 선보인 20 가을, 겨울 컬렉션에 등장한 사이클링 쇼츠와 레깅스, 울트라 크롭 실루엣 등 컬렉션 피스에서도 여실히 느껴지는 그녀의 철학은 맨즈웨어의 파격, 소신 있는 사람들을 위한 옷을 디자인하는 것이다. 결과적으로 남성복 쇼를 통해 선보이지만, 특정 성을 위한 옷으로 규정하지 않는다는 것. 이는 추후 그녀의 행보가 기대되는 이유다. 록(ROKH) 황록 2016년 자신의 브랜드 록(ROKH)를 론칭한 디자이너 황록. 그 역시 런던 센트럴 세인트 마틴 출신으로 끌로에(Chloe), 루이비통(Louis Vuitton), 피비 파일로(Phoebe Philo)가 역임한 시절의 셀린느(Celine)에서 쌓은 경험으로 그만의 유려한 디자인을 선보인다. 2018년에 한국인 최초로 LVMH 프라이즈(LVMH Prize) 파이널 리스트에 선정돼 특별상을 수상하기도 했으며, 파리패션위크 19 가을, 겨울 컬렉션 오프닝 무대를 장식하기도. ‘Artisan Imperfection’. 완벽하지 않은 장인. 그는 스스로를 그렇게 정의했다.테일러링을 베이스로 해체주의적 요소를 가미한 여성복을 추구하는 록의 피스를 보면고개가 끄덕여지는 대목이다. 한 인터뷰를 통해그가밝힌 '아이덴티티와 유스코드는 항상 중요한 그 무엇이었으며, 나는 거기에서 형태와 스타일을 탐구한다.'라는 언급에는 이머징 세대를 위한 진정한 방식을 표현하고자 하는 힘이 느껴지기도. 커미션(Commission) 진 케이 19 봄, 여름 컬렉션으로 시작한 뉴욕 베이스의 커미션(Commission)은 위 사진 속 인물 왼쪽부터 한국 출신의 진 케이(Jin Kay), 베트남 출신의 휴 릉(Hyu Luong)과 딜란 차오(Dylan Cao) 트리오 디자이너가 함께 전개하는 여성복 브랜드다. 세 남자가 이야기하는 우먼즈웨어는 지금 전 세계가 주목하는 아시아의 새 물결. 이는 서방 패션계가 일찍이 획일화된 이미지로 정립해놓은 우리(동양)의 진면모를 그 누구보다 잘 구축해가고 있기 때문일 테다. 진 케이를 포함해 휴 릉과 딜란 차오는 아시아의 다양성을 포용하며, 그들 어머니의 80-90년대 옷장에서 꺼낸 듯한 그리고 동시에 현대 워킹 우먼을 위하는 디자인을 선보인다. 20 가을, 겨울 컬렉션에 등장한 과장된 플라워 패턴 드레스, 어깨가 강조된 재킷, 펜슬 스커트 등이 그것. 최근 2020 LVMH 프라이즈(LVMH Prize)세미 파이널 리스트에 이름을 올리기도 한 그들의 행보를 더욱 주목해보길. 메종 김해김(KIMHEKIM) 김인태 차세대 꾸띠에르 김인태가 전개하는 메종 김해김(KIMHEKIM)은 파리와 서울을 기반으로 2014년에 론칭된 여성복 브랜드. 메종 김해김의 시그니처는 단연 과장된 사이즈의 리본과 진주 디테일일 터. 김인태는 브랜드 아이덴티티를 뒷받침하는 이러한 상징적인 장치들을 극적으로 연출함으로써 예상치 못한 분위기를 탄생시키고자 한다. 우아하면서도 위트 있는. 수많은 질문을 쏟아내게 만드는 이상한 나라의 메종 김해김. 예측할 수 없는 그답게 20 봄, 여름 컬렉션에서는 ‘마이 유니폼’ 시리즈를 선보이며, 다소 정제된 미학을 드러내기도 했다. 티셔츠나 데님 팬츠처럼 일상 속 무던히 활용할 수 있는 베이직한 디자인은 메종 김해김의 또 다른 아이덴티티. 인간도 꽃처럼 아름답길 바라며 옷을 대한 다는 그의 2020년은 꽃봉오리가 만개하는 봄날과 같을지도 모르겠다. 이세(IISE) 김인태 & 김인규 뉴욕 인근 뉴저지주에서 나고 자라 각각 뉴욕 주립대에서 영문학을, 펜실베이니아 주립대에서 금융학을 전공한 김인태와 김인규 형제는 2015년 브랜드 이세(IISE)를 론칭한다. 그들을 디자이너로 이끈 건 다름 아닌 여행이었다. 2012년 처음 한국을 찾은 그들은 감물과 숯, 인디고 가루로 색을 내는 천연 염색을 보고 매료돼 이 같은 한국의 헤리티지를 컨템포러리한 감각으로 재해석한 브랜드를 세상에 선보인 것이다. 한국계 미국인의 시각으로 바라본 한국은 분명 달랐을 테다. 우리의 세대 즉 ‘2세’대라는 의미가 함축된 이세는한국 1세대의 영감을 받아광목 등 우리나라의 원단과 기술을 포함해 모든 작업을 장인 정신에 입각해 만들어낸다. 뉴욕패션위크 19 봄, 여름 컬렉션에서는 광화문 촛불 시위에서 봤던 경찰의 의복에 영감받은 테크웨어 스타일을 선보이며, 한국의 과거, 현재 그리고 미래를 녹여내기도. 이처럼 이세의 디자인은 ‘미래에도 유일하게 명확한 것은 과거’라는 김인태와 김인규의 신념을 뒷받침하기에 충분하다. 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진> 링크에서
마가렛 호웰, 브랜드의 근간을 담은 단편 필름 공개
10분이 아깝지 않다 마가렛 호웰(Margaret Howell)이 브랜드의 근간을 담은 단편 필름을 공개했다. 아름다운 자연과 함께 어우러지는 스토리는 인물 마가렛 호웰의 어린 시절 이야기, 브랜드가 가진 소재에 관한 철학과 제작 과정 등 1970년 브랜드 탄생 이래 50년간의 스토리를 함축했다. 아티스트이자 영화 제작자 에밀리 리차드슨(Emily Richardson)이 제작에 참여했으며, 단편 필름 공개와 동시에 4월 1일까지 런던 Wigmore Street 매장에서는 브랜드 초기에 진행된 작업 및 개인 기념품 전시도 함께 진행 중이다. 좋은 소재와 군더더기 없는 디테일을 머금은 남성 셔츠에서 시작된 브랜드답게 이번 필름 탄생을 기념한 2종의 한정 셔츠도 오는 4월 발매를 앞두고 있다고. 영상 공개와 함께 그녀가 덧붙인 소감은 아래와 같다. 한편의 다큐멘터리를 연상케 하듯 브랜드의 이상향을 담은 영상을 위에서 함께 감상해보자.  " 저는 오랫동안 제 작업에 대해 질문을 많이 받곤 합니다. 어떤 질문은 대답하기 쉽지만, 다른 것 — 특히, 영감과 관련된 것 — 에 대한 답변은 정말 어려울 때가 많습니다. 제 작업은 개인적인 동시에 전문적인 일입니다. 작업의 핵심인 영감은 다양한 형태로 찾아옵니다. 기억, 사람, 소재에 대한 느낌, 만들어진 장소, 머리속에 있는 이미지까지. 많은 부분 직감, 마침 그때 적합하다고 생각되는 느낌으로부터 생겨납니다. 영감을 알아차리는 것이 바로 일입니다. 에밀리와 제가 이 영화를 만든 이유를 말로 설명하는 일은 어렵습니다. 이것을 통해 제 젊은 시절과 저한테 큰 의미를 준, 그리고 여전히 의미가 있는 사람, 장소, 작업과 이미지들을 되돌아봤습니다. 제가 디자이너로서 살아가는데 중요하다고 생각한 것들을 전해주기 바랍니다.' -마가렛 호웰- " 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진> 링크에서
WHICH SUNGLASSES SUITS ME? All You Need to Know
Which sunglasses suit me? One of the common questions that many women ask when it is time to buy new sunglasses. From cat-eye sunglasses to nerd or rimless sunglasses, with such a wide variety of frames, it is sometimes hard to decide on the best design. Today we have some tips to help you quickly and easily determine what type of face shape you have and what are the best sunglasses for women How to determine the shape of your face? At first glance, it is not always easy to identify the shape of one's face, since many faces have characteristics of different forms. Besides, the shape of a person's face changes throughout life, for example, when losing weight. Here is an easy way to determine your face shape at home: First, face a mirror facing forward. Then remove the hair from your face with the help of an elastic band. Having a clear face will help you identify the shape of your face. The face is delimited at the top by the hairline and the bottom by the chin. The ears are not considered to be part of the shape of the face. You can also outline your face in the mirror with water-soluble paint. If you do not have a mirror at hand, a photo looking forward (also a selfie made with your mobile) is also useful. The time has come to compare and ask yourself: which of these shapes is my face most like? What face shape do I have? Identifying the shape of your face will help you find the perfect frame. Face shapes can be divided into six different categories: Round Faces Smooth, flat contours, broad, prominent cheeks, and a rounded chin are the hallmarks of this face shape. Round faces are somewhat shorter and fuller than an oval face. What glasses go well with a round face? Slim and discreet frames that don't draw attention to the width of the face, angular frames (either square or slightly rectangular), or broader edges that accentuate the contours of the face and give it more definition. Nylor partial frames or full frames with a subtly tinted bottom edge are also a good alternative for round faces. Square faces Square faces are similar to elongated faces; only the former is somewhat shorter and wider. The sides of a square face also form perpendicular lines. The chin, jaw, and forehead stand out, and the cheekbones are usually higher. What glasses go well with a square face? It would be best if you opted for frames that lengthen your face, such as discreet rimless glasses, slightly round frames with flat contours, or round, curved glasses. The round frames create a nice contrast with the square shape of the user's face, providing a very harmonious effect. Wide frame glasses are an excellent choice because they emphasize the length of the wearer's face. Due to the high position of the cheekbones, narrow lenses are better for this face shape because wide lenses immediately cover the cheekbones. Oval faces An oval face fits almost any frame and glasses. Oval faces have smooth, harmonious contours, a small forehead, a gently rounded chin, and prominent cheekbones. It is the "ideal" face shape for glasses and sunglasses for women because virtually any design and size fits on an oval face. What glasses go well with an oval face? Almost everything fits square glasses, round glasses, discreet rimless glasses, or more pretentious frames (e.g., cat's eye or nerd glasses with wide frames) and exclusive designs. Triangular or heart-shaped face Triangular or heart-shaped faces have a broad forehead, prominent cheekbones, and a pronounced chin. What glasses go well with a heart-shaped face? Small, low-profile, full-length, cat-eye, oval, or round frames are best. These go well with heart-shaped faces because the lenses are narrower at the bottom and flare upward, giving a beautiful and harmonious contrast to the forehead. Elongated or rectangular faces The elongated or rectangular faces are characterized by the fact that the cheekbones, forehead, and jaw are slightly more full, and the lateral contours draw straight lines downwards. What glasses go well with an elongated face? Round, curved, rimless, oval frames, full frames, wide frames, and wide bridge glasses, and low temples. Striking frames shorten elongated faces. The larger lenses also smooth out the longer features of this face shape, providing a pleasing optical effect. Trapezoidal faces Top narrow, bottom wide: on the trapezoidal faces, the forehead and temple area is smaller than the pronounced area of the cheekbones and jaw. What style of glasses goes well with a trapezoidal face? Glasses with pronounced edges that accentuate the upper third of the face, such as a beautiful color gradient top edge or wider frames, are ideal. In this way, the narrow temples appear wider, balancing the features of the face. Saddles with rods positioned as high as possible achieve this same effect. A trapezoidal face is favored by cat and butterfly sunglasses, half frame, and full-frame glasses with a pronounced top rim. As with all recommendations, when looking for the frame that suits you, remember that the exception confirms the rule. Some people are looking for a design that breaks with the aesthetics they wear, and others want glasses that combine with a specific style, and that means that suddenly there are other criteria to consider. The best solution is to try on the frames that most attract your attention while receiving your optician's expert opinion.
Makeup Artist Draws Kim Kardashian On Her Chin
If you think Michael Jordan crying meme is hilarious, the Kim Kardashian one is twice as funny. As much as we love Kim K, she will never get out of this one -- ever. Let's be honest, her cry was monumental and quite hideous -- then again, who really has a lovely looking smile anyway? While Michael Jordan has been getting the most shine lately for his crying meme, it didn't take long before someone came along and put the infamous Kim Kardashian meme on the map. You've seen it on blogs, you've seen it on cellphones, and you've even seen it on shirts, but have you ever seen it on someone's chin? If not, today happens to be your lucky day. A talented makeup artist decided it would be cool if she drew cry baby Kim on her chin and believe it or not, it actually came out looking rather amazing. You cannot tell me that makeup is not a form of art. Laura Jenkinson is a makeup artist known for recreating images on her chin using her ever so amazing makeup skills and if you thought this was pretty awesome, just wait until you see her Donald Trump drawing -- yikes. In the meantime, keep scrolling and check out the images below. How epic is this? Looks just like Kim. Seriously. Of course, you can't have Kim without Kylie and her new lips. Amazing! Looks just like Jay-Z. Big lips and all. He has that same sinister look he always has on his face. Donald Gump. Ooops, I mean't Trump. Hey Everyone, look it's Finn from Adventure Time! And of course, I had to save the best for last and for @alywoah. Tacos! How amazingly odd are these works of art? Which one is your favorite? @alywoah @danidee @humairaa @cindystran @sophiamor @buddyesd @marshalledgar @YourConscience @shannonl5 @TessStevens @MyAffairWith @EasternShell @Cle1 @jazziejazz @primodiva93 @stephosorio @LizArnone
Why Hilary Duff's Clothes Shouldn't Define Her Motherhood
Stop slut shaming. Why is it that every time a mom posts a picture of herself where she feels good, the internet has to tear her down because it's too sexy, too provocative, or too inappropriate? Check out the picture that has garnered 118k likes and over 1,000 comments! Hilary Duff, don't let the haters get to you. The 28-year-old mom is under major heat after posting this photo on Tuesday of the outfit she wore to pick up her son Luca from school. Though Duff was feeling 'semi cute' in her very short shorts, tan top, and long trench, many fans had other opinions on her outfit. While Duff did invite her fans to tag themselves in their own #ootd, she got a reaction that were quite the opposite of what she had probably hoped for. "Hey moms! I came up with a semi cute outfit for school drop off! I usually roll in sweat pants or lulu lemons and look like a disaster but this morning I managed to throw something cute together and I thought I would share," Duff captioned the photo. "Cut offs or jeans. A light weight trench over a sweater or tee, cross body bag sneaks or booties and a pair of Sunnies! Now you try! Tag me in your photo (annnnd you don't have to wear such a serious face haha)." Everything from Instagram user señoritaatomasita writing, "I am sorry, the only issue that I have with her outfit is how tiny her shorts are. It given men mix signals about it's okay for them to cat call a female because what she wears. Plus the outfit does not posh" to other user simplelittleway writing, "I have always like her but no way is this appropriate. They look like panties. To whoever said the only ones bothered by this are insecure moms that never lost their baby fat. I love my body and I am thin. I however would never pick my son up in that. It's inappropriate for kids to see woman in their panties. Also I would not want to embarrass my son." Some moms are furious. However, not everyone has the same opinion. Instagram user iledahorsetowater wrote, "Rock it! What is up with all the negativity?? I think you are doing a fabulous job!" Even user shenry1977 loves Duff's style, "Your outfit rocks! Haters = motivators!!!" Many other moms commented that Duff is looking better than ever and there is no reason to retire the shorty shorts to fit a very skewed social standard. Women who support other women, we need more of this. But here's the thing, Duff should be able to wear this because she feels comfortable and it makes her happy. For a society that constantly promotes feminism and girls uniting with other girls to combat slut shaming and gender stereotyping, the negativity comments are doing just the opposite. A mom can be a mom AND sexy, pretty, cute, gorgeous, stunning, funny, and appealing. Just because you have a child does not mean that a woman should sacrifice her identity. Everyone freaked out weeks ago about Kim Kardashian's almost full nude mirror pick and it looks like the same haters have made their way to Duff's post. Leave Duff alone, she looks amazing. One word : WERK.
