Honestly love, I am not American.
I couldnt give a **** who paid for it. Not my money.Sorry.
It's not just the belts. Her entire outfits are weird and cheap looking. It looks like she buys whatever's left in the bin at the end of a week-long bargain basement sale.
I could give squat about Michelle, now the lady on the left on the other hand....
Shes got an apron on.
That’s what I was thinking. Her daughters made it for her for Mother’s Day. Grandmom gave them scraps of trim to use.
At least she’s not showing her manly arms, for once.
I think she got up and said I believe Ill wear the kitchen curtains today.
Should win hands down!
My Polish grandmother wore thermals, a sweater, a housecoat and another sweater to complete the ‘Babci’-look. Was cute as a button on her-she was 4’11” with her shoelaced granny shoes.
Maybe it’s a Euro-thing? Or JCrew had a BOGO sale?
All I know is my tax dollars are hard at work helping her shop-hop in Europe...must be good to be queen.
I have never seen anyone in the public eye dress as badly as she does.
It truly is baffling. It is as if she is saying, “Yes, I know this is ugly and unflattering, but my friend designed it so deal with it.” And the designer friend is snickering behind her back.
Some women really are clueless about what is flattering for their figures, but, with all of her money she can afford to have someone pick out her clothes. Whoever she is paying now is a total nincompoop.
Stop with the racist stereotypes; she does not speak that way.
LOL. Excellent way to make a point.
I hear the designer of the apron dress is Christopher Kane.
For real, or are you making that up? I am interested in following up.
I’ve looked for the dress but can’t find it. Another article referenced the designer Richard Nicoll.
“layered look, including two cardigans”
IOW, the Chicago bag lady look.
It takes a unique mind to watch Planet of the Apes and use it to start a fashion collection, but that’s where Christopher Kane jumped off for Spring. He liked the apes’ leather tunics. “It was that, and then The Flintstones, Raquel Welch in One Million Years B.C., and then Dian Fossey and her gorillas,” he said. And, like all little boys, Kane loved playing with toy dinosaurs. Hence, the stegosaurus shoes.
Even his sister Tammy was incredulous at first. “When he started saying ‘prehistoric,’ I said, ‘What? I don’t know what you’re talking about.’” But then the pair started work, and what emerged was an obsession with scales, which somehow morphed into half-circle 3-D geometric cutting in organza or leather, and even a bit of menswear fabric. Then he worked in bright animal-spot “Flintstone” cashmeres (made at Johnstons in Kane’s native Scotland), photo-prints of Digit the gorilla, and finally, some suggestive marabou trimming on chiffona late thought about Peter Bogdanovich’s Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women for that special borderline-tacky touch that always puts the finishing stamp on a Christopher Kane collection.
Thanks for the Christopher Kane info. Sounds like a real fruit loop.
Seeing Brixton from the train window was enough for me!
Oh, that makes me laugh. Thank you.
You make an excellent point.
