I Adore Jeremy Scott

Jeremy Scott

I started this blog because I was getting annoyed by everything about fashion.  The fashions had become annoying.  The fashionista had become annoying.  The fashion magazines had become annoying.  I didn’t want it to become a bitch-fest, because I’m really not a bitch.  I just don’t know how else to get my point across.

Fashion is in a tragic state in 2008.  Fashion criticism has been hijacked by so-called style police who believe it’s their mission to ensure that everyone in the world has “good taste.”  Frankly, good taste is the most overrated force in the universe.  Where’s the fun in fashion nowadays?  Where are the clowns who we’ll all remember in ten years?  Why is it a crime against style to have a sense of style?

If a woman walked into a room wearing this Jeremy Scott dress, she would probably make everyone in that room grin from ear-to-ear.  There’s nothing wrong with that.  I could see Sharon Stone donning this dress on the red carpet to poke fun at her own fondness for fur.  I could see Pamela Anderson cramming herself and the twins into it for a PETA benefit.  I could even see myself wearing it to Wal-Mart to pick up bathroom tissue and cat litter.

However, I could also see the tabloids publishing photos of any woman in this dress on the “What Were They Thinking?” pages.  It’s no wonder people are afraid to be themselves when doing so inevitably becomes a reason for others to ridicule them.

Fashion needs to be less about finger-pointing and more about fashionStyle needs to stop being synonymous with “acceptable.”  I want to see more from Jeremy Scott and less from TMZ.  It shouldn’t be a crime to be more fabulous than everyone else.

  2. He looks like he works well with print, but for some unknown reason I’m not feeling it.
