Who is She Kidding?


I was paging through an recent issue of Lucky when I came across this spread. Now, I don't personally know Laurie Trott (the editor  that put these looks together.) She might be a perfectly nice person who works at soup kitchens in her spare time and reads to the elderly but she needs to be called out for trying to convince readers that these Dolce & Gabbana pants are anything but ass backwards ugly. I mean c'mon, brocade bell bottoms? Who the hell would wear this shit? I wouldn't take these home if I found them on the bus. I don't care how she tries to dress them up with a "curvy jacket," "tiered top" or "earthy scarf," these pants look like couch cushions that house guests have been farting into for the last twenty-five years.

Sorry for the off-topicness, but I checked your links and didn't see this, so I thought you might want to know that Sessilee Lopez has a blog:
http://sessileelopez.blogspot.com/

sorry if you already have this in your links, or knew about it, but I just saw the address while reading an article on afrobella.

Cosign, they are very heidious.

There was another shoping magazine modeled after lucky that folded about two years in. I really liked that magazine a lot more. The first few years of lucky were pretty good but somehow some way it's gone down hill.

Love your commentary on the "grandma's curtain" pants.

Maybe D&G really love their grandmas.

@Asian Models Blogger

This is true. Someone has got to design for the grandmas of the world, it might as well be D&G. I just don't know how many pensioners can afford those $1200 pants. I mean, do they even come with a plastic slipcover?

HEHEHE! I thought the same thing when my Lucky Mag arrived.

Somewhere, Scarlet O'Hara is desperately missing a pair of drapes to make into a dress for the big BBQ with Ashley Wilkes.
