Flawed Fashion & Celebrity Story

In a previous edition, I wrote "Flawed Fashion: Masked by Makeup" (article id: 617) which drew immense attention -- but for the wrong reasons. Many comments in the BBS claimed that I accused celebrities of being ugly. Whyvillians said that I was encouraging people to wear makeup by showing some of the beastly natural faces of celebrities. However, this was not the case. I mistakenly implied that females have to wear makeup to hide their 'ugly' faces.

My belief is that nothing is ugly -- not even faces (well . . . maybe some of the atrocious, flawed Whyville fashions are!). What I meant to say was that taking advantage of makeup and overusing it will ruin your face. Makeup is like candy. Having small portions is good but abusing it has negative consequences. With that being said . . . on to this week's article!

This is a combination article of my Celebrity Story and Flawed Fashion series. Yes, I said series not columns. I've noticed that my Celebrity Story series isn't drawing much attention as my Flawed Fashion articles so I decided to combine the two.

What was Gwyneth Paltrow thinking?! I'll give her credit for having a good eye -- the print of the fabric suits her well. However the "tie" of the dress is hanging too low and could have been tied into a bow. Also, check out her heels. It seems as if Gwen's going to hang with the gangsters tonight . . .

I like the print of the dress because it reminds me of sprinkles. However I don't particularly favor seeing the illusion of sprinkles on someone's body. Kylie's shoes aren't impressing either. Hooker heels and sprinkles just do not go together.

This is a fine example of an attempt at couture gone wrong. The bright pink, tight-fitted jacket could almost blind our eyes. Sarah seems as if she's vying to look young with her skinny jeans.

It looks like the tabloid accusations of Jennifer Love Hewitt being fat, is really getting to her. She seems to be masking her curves by wearing very skinny jeans and a voluptuous yellow baby doll dress. Let's not blame Jennifer for this outrageous pairing, but the tabloids who feel that curvaceous women are obese.

Each one of these starlets were requested by many Whyvillians. See! I really do use your ideas :)
